rosemary beach summer home

the most perfect day at Rosemary Beach, Florida

Just be. Sit. Inhale. Exhale with your entire body so that it can refill on nothing but the sea-filled air. This is the moment you’ve been holding your breath for. A single wisp of cloud moves ever so slowly with the late summer breeze. The sound of waves crashing is all that breaks the silence. Welcome to Panama City Beach, Florida. Not quite the tourist trap as Miami, not the cultural experience of Bali or Costa Rica. Only simple, uncomplicated beauty lies on the horizon. This place is one to relax. It is the time to enjoy a moment of complete stillness. A small entourage of comrades join together to enjoy this extended weekend getaway. We’re all here for the same reason. Where the beach is, happiness ensues. At that bliss is all that fills our hearts. We dreamt up this moment for what feels like an eternity. The 5-day sanctuary from our daily lives has begun. The escape to the beach was a success, and we’re so, so ready. What’s different this year? No …

how to wear clear perspex heels

3 ways to wear clear perspex heels

Clear perspex heels are in for fall 2020 fashion. You may remember the craze for clear lucite heels back in 2018. This year the artificial transparency has moved from block heels to feminine sandals with perspex design elements. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | all clear perspex heels c/o:EGO OFFICIAL What is perspex Perspex is a form of acrylic that can be formed into sheets that are flexible enough to use as a fashion material. It has a high gloss, transparent surface much like it’s plastic cousin. You may have heard of it more in its most dense form, plexiglass. While it’s hard to imagine plexiglass being used for shoe material, perspex is actually comfortable enough. It has the texture of a heavy-duty vinyl or synthetic leather. Being in the acrylic family, perspex does not breath. When the trend came in last fall for perspex boots, there were some challenges from the fashion industry with the air flow of style causing “fogging” on the inside of the shoes. The good news is, when …

basic minimalist fashion blogger outfit lifestyle

getting back to the basics

A quiet hum of the dryer beats softly in the background. You can hear the birds above the white noise. A bright light shines through the ample windows. Spring has arrived, and with it a moment of stillness. After weeks on the road traveling between Nashville, Vegas, Atlanta, Costa Rica, Switzerland and Milan – this time at home feels like a haven of its own. No rowdy traffic, no drunken alleyways, no meetings or spewing stress of colleagues – it’s just me, the birds and the creaking ghost of the house (whom I’ve lovingly named Ralph). photography:NICK PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | vinyl leggings c/0:COMMANDO   It’s easy to get caught up in the pursuit of perfection both at work, at home, and managing life as a fashion blogger. These moments are ones that I cherish the most. The moments that allow us a clear vision and stable mind help us to reset and focus on our current existence. The next few weeks will pass here in this place, deep in the heart …

marula brunch club

Sunday funday #marulabrunchclub

Sun’s out, we’re out! Welcome to one of my favorite weekend festivities, girls brunch. After a whirlwind of prepping with Marula for a day of fun, we landed at The Corner, bathing in summer’s light window-side after that sun got just a twinge too hot to stay outdoors. With summer schedules in full swing, it’s nearly impossible to get the whole squad together, but the four of us were happy to enjoy a short escape from the rush. Cherish your friends! They’re your support group, cheerleaders, confidants, and partners in crime – and I don’t know what I would do without them. Many thanks to Marula for sending us on such a wonderful escapade to enjoy our afternoon together. Here’s the recap! photography:FRIENDS | camera:iPHONE 6 | hair products c/o:MARULA | hair extensions c/o:IRRESISTIBLE ME I must say, having a squad of super models can have it’s challenges ;) But one of the most fun parts of being girls is getting ready together for a night (or day) out on the town. Fully loaded with some incredible gift …
