STYLE AND SUBSTANCE | VITAMIN A SWIM

I have worn Vitamin A Swim for years. Their classic neutra bralette top and hipster bottom is what me got me hooked. I have this triangle bikini in almost every single color. Nothing else fit my body like this amazing eco-luxe suit does! What do I mean by eco-luxe?  The eco-luxe suits are made of superfine matte jersey with superior stretch, made in California with RECYCLED nylon fiber. The incredible fit comes largely from the amazing fabric and graphic silhouette. How amazing is it that now we can have everything down to our swimsuits be eco-friendly and sustainable? Vitamin A is super cautious on how we can preserve our planet and go green. I swear the Neutral eco-luxe suits looks incredible on just about every body type. Here in Nicaragua, at the Aqua Wellness Resort, it reminded me why we should be conscious of our planet in the first place. So much of Nicaragua feels untouched from the beautiful secret bays to the monkeys and birds that lived by our treehouses. It’s what makes the country special. I feel gratitude knowing that more and more people are becoming involved. Our beautiful planet is delicate so let’s take better care of it even if that means starting in a small way. Maybe that means using less water by taking shorter showers. Maybe it means remembering to turn off the bathroom lights when you’re not in it and cutting down on electricity. Maybe it means having a recycling bin in your house so you just don’t forget. If that doesn’t feel like a luxury, know that making a change will in the long run. Through the years I’ve become more caring simply by adding a little thought that go into my normal everyday actions and saying no to waste. Start small and get yourself one of these eco-luxe bikinis. You’ll thank me later.

BARE ON THE BLACK SAND

I was literally toasting on the black sand beaches of Maui this summer. The darker the sand, the hotter it actually gets. Within only 10 minutes, I could feel the tip of my nose and shoulders immediately turning pink. For some reason this particular beach wouldn’t show up on our GPS. With just a little wooden sign saying “beach,” we followed it down a tiny road leading to an absolutely perfect little black sand cove. The most off-the-beaten path you can get. What I remember most is the breeze, and chasing my hat down the beach everywhere I turned. But it was also it’s intense color palette that left me smitten.

Creative Ways to Wear a Beach Cover Up | Swim Edit

What is everyone doing this 4th of July? Looks like I’ll be in St. Maarten shortly after a full week in Hawaii. Can you say sunshine?! Work has been non-stop for me back home in NYC so while I’m away on “holiday,” it always takes me a second to adjust to a slower pace. I’m the girl that is always “go, go, go.” Can’t stop. Won’t stop. NYC does that to you. But in the summer, I’m always by the water…ready for my morning swims in the ocean, indulging in acai bowls, and sitting in the sun. I’ve got a million things on my calendar pre-travels that the last thing I want to worry about is packing. The amazing thing is I already know what to pack…and that is Donni Charm. Scarves that double as tops, skirts, and wraps.

FLAMINGO PINK | RETRO BEACH LOOK

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.
