Good morning everyone! I’m currently writing from my ocean view balcony here in Kapalua Bay, Maui with my Veuve Clicquot team and I couldn’t be happier. I have fallen in love with this balmy, Hawaiian air. NYC humidity, you’ll just have to wait until I’m back! So far, we’ve sipped countless glasses of champagne, had the best massages ever, and spent hours swimming with the sea turtles. It’s been magical. Anyways, I just wanted to say a little Sunday hello as it looks like I’ll be working remotely from my laptop for the next few weeks. Backlogged on emails and everything else, I’m too busy soaking in the sun on island time. Maui -> St. Martin -> then straight to London for a shoot. I’m in and out of NYC for the next month. EEEK!! I’m getting as much R & R today until I’m hit with Monday madness. In the meantime, check out this incredible Fendi ensemble I took to the streets of Tribeca.
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.
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?
