How to Beat that Florida Heat (and look cute)

DRESS: Revolve/BATHING SUIT: more options here/HAT: (c/o) Pamela Munson/EARRINGS: Lele Sadoughi/BAG: (c/o) Indigo Africa – here and here

100% MINERAL INVINCIBLE SETTING POWDER: (c/o) Supergoop! via Sephora

Swim Week, July 2017. I’m in Miami Beach and the temperature outside is easily 98 degrees with 100% humidity. Forgot looking cute. I was happy to look “dewy” not sweaty. I run into my old friend Katie from NYC who says, “how do wear makeup in this heat?!” as she takes out a blotting paper to save whatever makeup is left on her skin. My reply, “setting powders; that’s my secret…”

Travel Bug

DRESS: (c/o) Marissa Webb/SANDALS: similar – save, spend, splurge/EARRINGS: vintage Valentino

Cough. I have the travel bug. Cough.

The kind of bug where you’re like, “where to next?” days after coming back from one of the most epic trips ever. You know that kind, right? Great. I’m sure you feel my pain.

I’ve spent the past couple of days procrastinating. Pushing all my work to the side to research new and interesting locations around the world. As if my bank account is Beyonce’s. And I’ve found SO many amazing places! From a James Bond inspired hotel in Jamaica to Mexico’s number one luxury estate to an uber-Palm Beach-chic boutique hotel in the Dominican Republic, I’ve spent countless hours researching it all! The issue? Finding time to do these trips.

Streets of Mérida

BLOUSE: Ganni/SKIRT: (c/o) Marissa Webb/SANDALS: old – similar here/BAG: from street vendor/LIPSTICK: “Heat Wave” by Nars

I’m (#sadface) back in Florida but sharing still content from Mérida because we captured so many amazing shots – it’s hard not so share them all!

While shopping for Mexico, I came across this Ganni blouse on Shopbop and immediately gravitated towards it because of the vibrant red flowers. I knew it would look amazing on the colorful streets on Mérida! (PSA: it comes as a dress too!) I paired it with a khaki skirt from Marissa Webb that has black lace accents and a chunky bow that cinches in the waist. #SoMe

The Pink Hotel

TOP (here too), PANTS (here too): Red Carter/SCARF: vintage Saint Laurent via eBay/SANDALS: Express/BAG: Cult Gaia/EARRINGS: Oscar de la Renta

This morning’s visit to Rosas y Xocolate (the famed Pink Hotel in Mérida) was so fun – a must-see if you’re in the city. The food was delicious (so much that we’ll most likely come back for dinner!) and the service was outstanding. Our waiter let us talk for hours while we sipped on coffee and laughed at funny stories about ex-boyfriends and bad dates. It was a great change of pace considering we’ve been nonstop the entire time here!

Easy Breezy Bahamas

TOP, BOTTOMS: (c/o) Everything But Water’s new store in Palm Beach

Just call me “Bahama Mama” from now on because I’m moving to the Bahamas.

Wow, where do I begin. My trip to the Bahamas was nothing but pure bliss…

Upon boarding my plane to Nassau, I was stressed. (What else is new Stephanie?) I was busy planning upcoming trips, sourcing clothing, answering emails, working on edits, writing, etc. I had a lot on my plate so the idea of “taking time off” to hang out in the Bahamas for a week did not seem possible.

Celestún Pt. 1

BLOUSE: Lovers + Friends/JEANS: (c/o) Express/BRALETTE: (c/o) Sézane/SANDALS: (c/o) Shopbop

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is not about stuffed animals, flowers and giant boxes of chocolate. It’s about celebrating the gift of love and all the beautiful things and people in this world. Which seems appropriate considering I’m exploring the tiny (but very beautiful) town of Celestún (about 1.5 hours from Mérida) today with my boyfriend (who makes me so happy – I love you!) and my amazing photographer, Chelsae Anne.

Hola, Mérida!

DRESS: Alexis (c/o) Shopbop/EARRINGS: Kenneth Jay Lane (c/o) Shopbop

Hola from Mérida, Mexico!

Today I’m reporting live from the most beautiful Airbnb I’ve ever seen. (Yes, I promise to disclose the location at the end of my trip! Please hang tight!) You have NO idea how excited I am to finally be here. I’ve been dying to explore this colorful Yucatan town for years but have never had the proper resources to do it (you know, share epic outfits + bring my photographer and boyfriend with me). So last month, I finally pulled the trigger (cue: last month’s creative plateau) in hopes of a new destination spurring inspiration. AND IT’S WORKING!

Slow Down, Go Fast

DRESS: Jacquemus/SANDALS: save, spend splurge/BAG: Cult Gaia/EARRINGS: Oscar de la Renta

As I’ve grown older, I’ve found one the best ways to set yourself up for a great week is to give yourself the weekends off – meaning lots of rejuvenating and restoring! #HelloSunshine #HelloNetflix

One of the other ways I’m learning to set myself up for success (this year) is to say no. Being a natural people pleaser slash go-getter, I have a tendency to over-do it and take on too many projects or attend too many events which deplete my energy and at times, my creativity. This is part of the reason why I’ve decided to skip Fashion Week this season…

Wishlist: Swimwear

This season, I’m skipping Fashion Week to explore the Bahamas and Merida, Mexico. It was a hard decision but ultimately, one that makes the most sense for The Style Bungalow! (Think: big fluffy coats vs. tropical goodness) I CAN’T WAIT!

That said, I’m in dire need of new swimwear. Like stat! So I hopped on over to Shopbop.com, one of my favorite destinations for all things contemporary fashion, and found a few suits I couldn’t help but share with you all!

You’ll see a few from Marysia (a former ballet dancer) and the rest from trusted designers like, Karla Colletto and Patbo. Enjoy and let me know which ones are your favorites!
