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 …

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 …

luxury fashion capsule wardrobe tips

this is where I leave you

The past couple of months have been an arduous challenge in time management, making a personal oasis essential for survival. It’s been overwhelming at times, but then I often think that’s what I live for. Moving into a new house, undertaking new challenges, and shifting towards some fresh starts has all but kept me in flight at any moment of the day. But at last, my new home has come together, with a beautiful open studio space for my work and plenty of space designed exquisitely for myself. The transition was difficult, as change often is. New beginnings are also an end, and many aspects of that evolution were bittersweet. But endings should not be sad. Rather, they should be a celebration of something beautiful. The past does not melt into the abyss, part of it stays with us forever. I am forever grateful for the places and experiences that I came from, for each moment in the present time, and the continuation to the imminent future ahead. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | …

net bags fashion trend

It’s official, citrus fruits in net bags are currently trending on the most popular fashion blogs

When life gives you lemons, grab a couple of limes and oranges and throw them in a net bag – you’ll be the hottest it-girl on the ‘gram. Laugh if you will, but this summer fashion trend isn’t going anywhere. Being in the fashion industry, I find myself browsing some of the best fashion blogs and magazines for inspiration on the daily. This phenomenon of fruit in fashion struck me as odd when I first spotted it budding as early as last fall. Since then, the trend has totally taken over Instagram feeds and fashion editorials alike. What’s defining the summer fashion trend So what is all of this sweet ruckus about? In a push for sustainable fashion, the net back (resembling cotton fishnet) has officially made it’s debut on the fashion scene. Found mostly in off-white as well as black and a few neutral colors, it is a small-footprint solution to toting around daily essentials (and apparently fruits). Pro tip, don’t try to tote around small or projecting items. My YSL logo bag constantly …

9 favorite luxury fashion steals from the Farfetch sale

This sale is literally insanity! So excited to share one of my favorite blog partners, Farfetch, has made some big name markdowns, and I’ve put together some of my favorite designer picks for the season. My wardrobe has definitely expanded since starting a luxury fashion blog, and I’ve learned that when it comes to designer pieces, a sale can be a great place to start to find some steals you may not be able to so easily afford otherwise. Warning, this sale is HUGE. So if you’re prone to temptation, you may as well get your credit cards out now. The pieces I’ve selected are not only a steal, they’re really versatile, and great investment pieces for frequent wear. Black jeans that can be worn with a simple white T or dressed up with a silk cami and pumps; a sporty handbag that can hold your gym clothes or your evening wear essentials. Trouble deciding what you like? Here’s the breakdown of my absolute favorite luxury fashion finds. Sporty is the new sexy Probably my …
