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!


NYE Party Inspo

Sparkle, lights, music, champagne and good ole’ razzle dazzle means one thing – New Year’s Eve! Oh, how I love the one night out of the year where living like The Great Gatsby is more than acceptable – it’s encouraged!

Finding a dress to wear on one of the most glamourous nights of the year is serious business. That’s why I got you with today’s post. I’ve selected a handful of dresses from River Island because their price points are great – aka – you won’t feel guilty spending your hard-earned-GIRLBOSS cash on a dress you will probably only wear once.

So with that said, here are some of my favorites…


Favorite Basket Bags

In case you haven’t figured out by now, I’m obsessed with basket bags, straw totes and beach bags. Yes, even as we near the tail end of summer – I see myself wearing them all year long. In my mind, they’ve become the accessory of the year. Not only are these bags practical (most of them are pretty affordable) but sturdy and chic when paired with long flowy dresses, worn-in jeans, bright colors, bathing suits – just about anything, really! You can’t go wrong.

Since many of you guys have been asking about my basket collection, I figured I would do a quick round-up of my latest favorites! Here you go!

Is it me or does it feel like I’ve been living out of a suitcase lately? Between Key West, Bimini, Miami, NYC, Houston (this weekend) and (soon to be) NYC again for Fashion Week (phew), I feel like I’ve barely been home this summer. It’s safe to say, I’m in the thick of vacation season.

Which means, I’ve been spending a lot of time packing… unpacking… packing… unpacking my go-to suitcase. At this point, I’ve become a pro at it!


Ciao Makes Me Feel…

Today I’m sharing what my day to day looks like in sunny West Palm Beach, Florida and how wearing the fragrance Ciao by Vince Camuto inspires me to conquer the world and go after my dreams, one spritz at a time…

Whether styling, taking a ballet class, blogging or going on a date, Ciao makes me feel fresh, flirty and fearless. It acts as my finishing touch, an invisible accessory that adds a hint of romanticism to the most average day.

Ciao is a delicate blend of pink grapefruit and tangy Italian mandarin grounded in wild strawberries and blackberries. It fuses floral notes (think: roses, peonies, soft muguets, honeysuckles, jasmine and passionflower) with amber (one of my favorite scents), cashmeran, amaro liquor, sandalwood and patchouli to create a smoldering finish. It’s delicious.

And a fragrance that’s quickly become one of my top-shelf contenders this spring; one that compliments all moments of my life! Feminine gals, this scent was made for you.

Handbags are a necessity. Not just an accessory. #snapsnap

Every woman needs a good one. A bag that’s fashionable. Durable. Stylish. Convenient. And big enough to tote around a little bit of everything wherever they go – phones, keys, wallets, makeup, sunglasses, extra pair of heels, entire kitchen sink. Or if you’re like me, hold the bare minimum.


My Beautiful Bookcase!

Hey guys! Happy almost-Halloween!

In this week’s video with Wayfair, I’m showing you how I’ve transformed my entryway bookcase into a showstopping focal point in my studio apartment using knick-knacks from my travels, magazines, books and more!

Just wanted to say thank you SO much to everyone who tuned in these past six weeks. It’s been such a pleasure and so much fun to share my apartment with you guys. Adding video content to my blog was so scary for me (because I absolutely dread speaking in front of the camera) but when all said and done, 100% worth it. I feel like I’ve grown so much since my first video and can’t wait to do more!

Anyways, I hope you’ve enjoyed this partnership with Wayfair (big thank you to the Wayfair team for choosing me to be apart of such an amazing group of Youtubers). You can subscribe here for more videos on home decor. And as always, please feel free to share your feedback in the comment section (like, what videos you would like to see next) below! Have a safe weekend!

Lots of love today!
