Last from Hawaii

 I’m trying to figure out how two weeks have gone by since our trip to Oahu for my in-laws’ 50th wedding anniversary, but I can’t decide if it feels like ages ago or if it feels like yesterday. It’s been a whirlwind, to say the least. Give me the sun, sand and a warm beach […]

In Kyoto

 Three days in Kyoto was not enough. I couldn’t get over how beautiful, serene and culturally rich it was in Kyoto. We split our trip evenly between there and Tokyo, but had we been able to spend more than a week in Japan, we both agreed that we would have explored more in Kyoto and taken a […]

Pool Days

 Good morning and cheers to the weekend!! This might be the coolest one-piece I own: the top separates in two pieces (via buttons on the side) in case you just want to wear it as a simple strapless top. Versatility always wins. *** Swimsuit – Alix (here and more sizes here | also in a […]

Last Photos from London

 We’ve been home a week and I’ve finally had time to look through all of my sightseeing photos from London. Sharing a few last snapshots – had such a great time exploring. Vacations have always tended to be beach-oriented for me, but over the last year or two I’ve really come to appreciate the busy […]

11 Hours

 A wildly different outfit for today – heading out for an 11-hr flight! Which means I’m going for all-out comfort. And a few things I do to help with the travel: I organize all of my important travel necessities/documents in a large leather zipper sleeve (this one in navy, to be exact): my passport/passport holder, […]

The Dead Sea

 One of the most memorable experiences from my recent travels to Tel Aviv with Vibe Israel was our trip out to the Dead Sea. After starting the day at the first fashion show of Gindi Fashion Week, Yuyu, Alina, Diana and I made the winding 2.5 hour trek to Earth’s lowest elevation for a fun […]

Vibe

 Good morning! After last week’s post from Tel Aviv, I’ve been bubbling with excitement to share more! I was recently invited to join in on VibeIsrael’s fashion tour with 5 bloggers from around the world. It was everything they promised and more: a weeklong immersive experience in Tel Aviv with day trips to Caesarea and the […]

Italy

 Happy Friday!! Finally getting around to the last of my photos from Italy – such an incredible experience! I definitely hope to travel there again soon – would love to visit Venice and spend more time in Rome. But Florence…Florence will surely be my favorite. 1st photo: The Ponte Vecchio in Florence 2nd photo: In […]

Sun, Sand, Saltwater…

 Sun, sand, saltwater, and poolwater: great for the soul but hard on the hair! I spent less time lounging under the safety of an umbrella on this vacation, and more time playing in and out of the water with Lucia. My hair needed help! I was super excited to try Nexxus New York Salon Care’s […]

Nha Trang

 6th stop: Nha Trang, Vietnam. Finally, the world-famous beaches of Nha Trang. This is my happy place: sun, sand, water and waves. I definitely could have enjoyed several more days of this! PS: This is my new favorite swimsuit! I’d love it in white too – the fabric is thick, stretchy and the full swimsuit is […]

Hoi An & Quy Nhon

 4th & 5th stops: Hoi An & Quy Nhon. Hoi An is a wonderful, charming little city. We toured the countryside by bicycle, peddling through narrow pathways between rice paddies and along the riverfront scenery. It was enough to work up an appetite for a 9 course meal in town (spicy clam soup! crispy fish […]

Hanoi

 3rd stop: Hanoi, Vietnam. It was a long bus ride from the coast to get to Hanoi, but so worth it. We walked along the Old Quarter, visited the Temple of Literature and peeked into Ho Chi Minh’s former living quarters. A strong Vietnamese coffee and the best chicken Pho I’ve ever had were some […]

Halong Bay

 2nd stop: Halong Bay, Vietnam. This post is heavy on the scenery and light on outfit photos… For one, it was the first time I’d set foot in a kayak (but now I’m convinced it won’t be my last!). And we kayaked through incredible caves and into vast, serene coves. And were surrounded by this […]

Packed & Ready

 Vietnam: here I come! The last week or so has been pretty hectic running around with last minute to-dos before the trip. Lucia isn’t joining us, so I’ve also been hugging her extra hard every morning and night. Hope you’re having a great week – I’ll be blogging next from Hong Kong! Here are a […]

New York (Four)

Rebecca Taylor was filled with rich shades of lavender and navy and, as always, the clothing was feminine and elegant. I loved the detail on this gray dress. ***  Tibi was an absolute dream for me – the coats, the hats, the heavy knit dresses… I can’t wait for these pieces to hit stores in […]

Postcards from the Halekulani

This trip was beyond dreamy – everything I’d hoped for and more!  The weather was perfect, the setting (the Halekulani) was impeccable in every way, the non-alcoholic Lava Flows were just as good as their rum-filled counterparts and I spent my days languidly strolling from flawless pool to sandy beach and back… It’s important to […]

Dress – Zara (recent, here) Purse – thanks to Loeffler Randall Sunglasses – Prada (here) Bracelet – J.Crew Heels – Alexander Wang (ordered from OtteNY here, also available here) Happily finding that my two new Spring/Summer sandals (the flats from my previous post and these heels) are both exceedingly comfortable – major score!

Getaway

Cape – thanks to Rachel Zoe (60% off here); Turtleneck – Banana Republic (here); Pants – thanks to Ann Taylor (here); Rain boots – Tory Burch (very old but similar here) We spent the (super) rainy weekend in a little coastal inn north of Bodega Bay on Highway 1.  It was the perfect weekend getaway: thrashing waves, toasty […]

From Boulder With Love

Boulder. Love this town and love the Pearl Street Stampede tradition.  Nothing is more exhilarating than a spirited band – it’s easily my favorite part of all the football games. Go Buffs! 😉 More photos coming soon, hope you’re enjoying your week!

Summer Style Escape

Hello, friends!! So excited to share today: Refinery29 and Sunglass Hut recently asked if they could join me on my whirlwind 3-week summer trip through Paris, Amsterdam and Denver…and of course I was more than thrilled to bring them (and you!) along for the ride! For more on my journey (and the sunglasses that accompanied […]

Last Weekend in Paris

Bits of my final weekend in Paris. All in all, a dedicated work trip with obvious benefits. There’s no place quite like it. PS: The summer dress from my recent post is back in stock here, and under $55!

Amsterdam!

Photos from my week in Amsterdam (mostly taken during the few precious moments I had walking to/from work that week). The pictures do not do the lovely city justice and the fact that bicycles appear in 5 of the 7 photos is no coincidence – they’re everywhere!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Paris!

Bonjour! Just a few snapshots taken during my first several days in Paris – the city is as beautiful as ever!  After a few days in the office working, I enjoyed an incredible weekend with my mom (who coincidentally was traveling at this time too) and family (grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends) and now I’m […]
