what to pack for London in the summer

what to pack for London this summer

Jet setting to London this summer? Trust me, you’re going to want to do some research on what to pack for London. I referenced Google, friends and travel bloggers for advise on a London packing list before the trip, and decided to make this list of my own based on personal experience on multiple trips to the city. London is a place of beautiful architecture, bustling culture and of course, the prestigious royal family. Rolling green hills, old world architecture, and refined country style was my first experience of London, spending most of the time on the countryside visiting SOHO farmhouse in a dreamy, storybook setting. My most recent travels took me back to the city, staying in and around the main city center of London. There were views of all of the major icons including Big Ben, Buckingham palace, London Eye, Westminster and so much more. We had the chance to see the insider’s view of the Royal Windsor Horse Show from the river along the Queen’s back garden, and were surrounded by press …

three ways to wear heels – stepping up summer fashion trends

When the world goes one way, fashion inevitably starts to go the other. In case you missed the memo, dress is back. With athleisure now fully saturated into both European and American markets, the consumer has started to get bored, and they’re reaching back to their archives for a compromise away from athleisure style. Don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere soon. But while athleisure strays away from fashion and moves toward traditional sport brands like Nike, Puma and Adidas – 2019 summer fashion trends are leaning towards the ultimate return of the feminine evolution – heels. photography:MY MOM | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | shoes c/o:JO MERCER | classic blue levi jeans c/o:SHOPBOP | black jeans c/o: PARKER SMITH | leather biker jacket c/o:ALL SAINTS   Don’t worry ladies, we know you got used to the comfort of sneaker styles and flat-bed sandals. So let’s start simple. Kitten heels fill the largest category of the return of heels for spring and summer 2019, while only the bravest are bringing back the pumps and stiletto heels. …

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 …

luxury fashion blogger travels to costa rica

Costa Rica sunshine and the true meaning of luxury

Something about the sun warms not only our skin, but also the soul. Hello blog world. The last couple of months have taken me to Nashville, Vegas, Atlanta, Milan, Lugano, and Costa Rica. Wrapping up an intense travel season, I have a moment to reflect on the adventures had and memories made. Here’s another snippet from Costa Rica – an annual international travel tradition with myself and a few friends. photography:JOSH WOLFE MUSIC | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | denim shorts:LEVI | location:VILLA TRANQUILA, COSTA RICA   Each year, we choose a new destination where we enjoy all of the local food, sights and leisure we can soak up in 10 days. Each a true luxury to experience, this was no exception. Our caravan of 18 companions flew into San Jose, where we spent a night at a resort enjoying late night bites, a local casino, and a night view of the tropical poolside. The stop was quick, as the earliest shuttle transported us to the beaches of Tamarindo early the next morning. With such …

Getting desperate for summer sun, evening mojitos and an escape from the dredge of winter. In lighter notes, spring has nearly arrived, and it’s time to start assembling a summer wardrobe. Just returning home from a season of the biggest women’s fashion conventions in Vegas and Atlanta, I’ve had the opportunity to have first looks of what’s coming up on the fashion forecast for summer 2019 and into fall/winter of 2020.
