Was it a week ago? Two weeks ago? One month ago? I don’t know, can’t remember. Time seems like a blur lately (but in a good way) so please excuse me for not knowing!

As I slipped into my bathing suit in Cartagena, I realized I didn’t bring a cover-up with me so I grabbed a midi skirt and ran downstairs to meet Chelsea, my photographer, for breakfast and a quick photoshoot. Only to realize that my outfit was pretty cute! “Who would have thought a bathing suit could double as a top?” I thought. Chelsea encouraged me to shoot the swimsuit (with the midi skirt). The pictures came out great! I loved it so much, I decided to post it to IG and the response was fantastic.

Which left me dreaming up the many possibilities of swimsuits…

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…”

Earlier this week, I met with a friend for coffee in Palm Beach. Our date was first thing in the morning so naturally, I rushed to get ready because I’m not a morning person. I figured afterwards I would stop by some of my favorite consignment stores to see what’s new. Side note, Palm Beach is known for having some of the BEST consignment stores in the country.

Ditching the corporate life to run a small business is no cake walk. And it’s most certainly not as sexy as people think it is. You invest an incredible amount of time, hard work, money and passion into your dream with the hope of it taking off one day. You struggle with work/life balance. Have trouble turning “it” off at night. And feel like you’re running a marathon – more like the Iron Man. Not a sprint.

Major Alley is a small alleyway tucked behind the shops on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. It’s lined with the most beautiful, fragrant flowers and offers a handful of shops and boutiques. It’s such a pretty spot on the island and the perfect backdrop for this outfit…

The past two days in South Florida have been so gorgeous. Highs in the 80’s, lows in the 70’s. Breezy. Sunny. Not a cloud in the sky. I feel so blessed to call this town my home and to be surrounded by so much beauty everyday. It’s so inspiring!

Hello!

Let’s get to it – I adore this dress by Ann Taylor. Absolutely adore it. It’s so fresh! I love the dark blue and white gingham check and the self-tie belt that defines your waist. It’s so sophisticated and timeless! Wear it with gladiator sandals, a mini tote and a sunhat (currently love this one) or with platform sandals.
