One of my ULTIMATE summer destinations is BALI, Indonesia. And it’s exciting to share my ltitle inside scoop with ShopStyle’s TRAVEL HUB
amongst other tastemakers and designers.
When I travel, I love playing the explorer, and I LOVE to wear tons of print in these hot and humid exotic locations. Bali is just perfect for that. The city has an energy that just makes you feel more calm, more peaceful. It’s the perfect faraway destination. The volcanos, the ancient temples…there’s so much exciting beauty everywhere you turn. Though I stayed in the luxurious town of Nusa Dua…I loved to visit the LOCALS. Ubud, being one of the best places to be. The art, the food, the rice patty fields!
WHAT TO WEAR PADDLEBOARDING IN BALI:
The oceans in Bali are serene. The water so blue, and the beaches so calm. I love to paint the beach loads of color by mixing and matching psychedelic prints! I like to go for a super cool rash guard, on top of cheeky bikini bottom. Ecclectic and cool. Then, I pile on the jewelry. The heavy beaded cuffs, the turquoise rings. A bandana headband to keep the hair off my face. And cat eye sunglasses. Who said you can’t be chic in the ocean?
WHAT TO WEAR ON A BIKE RIDE THROUGH UBUD:
I’m a total biking girl, and so I wear just about anything when I’m traveling in exotic cities. It could be a plaid midi dress, a cropped lace blouse, or classic vintage Levi’s. But I always, always play up the shoes. For hot Summer mornings, I go for a platform espadrille sandal . . . for nights, I slip into a classic black chelsea boot. It’s all about the accessories — the chain belt looped through your shorts or hung low on the hips of your dress and the chic oversize sun hat. And a backpack is a must.
