A little quick hello on my busy Wednesday before rushing out the door. NYC, can you please bring out the sun?! I’m taking you back to much brighter days with a perfect retro beach look that’s super easy to recreate. My trip to the Cayman Islands consisted of numerous neck scarves (by Donni Charm of course), one-piece swimsuits, and decadent earrings. When you’re out on a gorgeous island, why not add a little Old Hollywood glam to your beach look?! It’s rare I have a day to just sit by the water with my phone on silent, so I let myself indulge and play diva.
I just got back fromJo Malone London’s “The Talk of the Townhouse” celebration and I couldn’t be more swept off my feet. Jo Malone London threw a super exclusive party to kick off their new brand spankin’ new online and in-print magazine that boasts everything chic, inspirational, and of course, aromatic. The party was inside the actual Jo Malone London townhouse headquarters…completely transformed into an open dance floor/ fragrant sanctuary for the evening.
As you guys may already know, I’ll be back at Bonnaroo with my Tevafamily. They’ve really taught me what life on the road is all about. The nitty gritty of driving through the country, how to live out of a suitcase, and most importantly, how to camp. My Teva crew knows how to take things to the next level when it comes to having a fun, adventurous community of people with a love for wandering. It’s traveling by foot that really inspires me. In the winter, I pair my Teva sandals with socks, while in the summer, they accompany me through walks through the jungle and on the beach. Here are some looks to get you inspired for these upcoming hot summer nights on the campground.
With Memorial Day weekend ahead, it’s time we start thinking about the perfect beach coverup. As most New Yorkers head out for their first celebratory weekend back in the Hamptons, all that’s on our minds are 1: a bikini bod, and 2: some easy, breezy pieces. Next that glass of champagne of course. Does it finally feel like summer to you?
