The Essentials: Spring Getaway


Whether you’re jetting off to the Greek Islands or laying low on our local coastline, make sure you’re headed to your getaway destination in style. From a breezy shirt dress to a refreshing facial mist, we have gathered the travel essentials that will make packing your bags a breeze.



Start with a statement piece and add on neutrals that can pair with any look you choose. The Harshman Harlow Shirt Dress is versatile and easy to wear, whether you’re heading to the beach or out for a casual dinner. Throw it on as a swim suit cover up with Ancient Greek Sandals or wear unbuttoned over an Isabel Marant tee and white MOTHER denim.

We like to keep it simple when it comes to packing accessories. Choose two or three favorites that tie your look together and feel effortless (you are on vacation after all). The palm straw Outback Hat is a beach day must-have and provides the best form of SPF, while the Oliver Peoples Floriana Sunglasses play double duty – blocking the sun’s ray and keeping you beach-chic all day long.

Aloe + Rosewater Balancing Mist, $35

Conscious Coconut Oil, $18

Maison Louis Marie Perfume Oil, $58

Deo Stick, $59
































Inflight Travel Case, $250

Last but not least, traveling with clean, effective skincare products is a must. After a day in the sun, freshen up with Susanne Kaufmann’s Deo Stick, spritz on the hydrating Aloe + Rosewater Balancing Mist and lather up with the ultra-moisturizing Conscious Coconut Oil. Keep all of those skincare essentials where you can see them, in the ultra chic Anya Hindmarch Inflight Travel Case. Just toss it into your bag and and set off on that much needed getaway!

Gold Redone

Gold redone 4 Edited

I featured this Sam&Lavi gold skirt, my favorite Golden Goose booties and Mason swing cardigan last week on my blog and had so much fun wearing the look that I wore it to work a few too many days in a row.  I wanted to figure out a way to dress it up a little and wear it out to a casual dinner party. Enter the perfect snuggly ivory sweater by no other than Isabel Marant, a simple black pump and an easy grab-n-go clutch by Anya Hindmarch and I was set for an intimate fireside gathering with friends.

Round Up – Paris Fashion Week

Postcards from Paris

I’ve been off the grid for a few weeks traveling and have so much to share! The hubby and I finally found time to take our honeymoon (more on that later) and I had a trip to Paris for Fashion Week and a birthday celebration for a close friend. Paris is always magical, but when you add amazing collections to view for spring and equally amazing friends to share the city with, I really do have a lot to be thankful for.

Gold Rush

I’m seeing a lot of gold for spring and I was so excited about the new Dolce and Gabbana spring collection and how much gilded details there were. I’ve long been a fan of gold in all it’s mutations, especially accessories, perhaps because it was always a favorite of my mother’s. My go-to shoes this past week in NYC were my Chanel T strap heels, which I originally bought to wear on my wedding day. When I first laid eyes on those shoes, they felt like ancient Greek treasures with their encrusted gold block heel and fine gold meshing overlay. It’s only natural that when I go on buying trips, I’m drawn to all things in the golden hues. Enter my new jewelry crush, Venessa Arizaga. I had the pleasure of visiting her showroom and her Hawaii surf inspired pendants go straight to my heart. They’re bold, edgy and perfect for layering up and experimenting with the gold rush trend.

Prints gone Wild

I spent yesterday running around NYC in this whispy Prabal Gurung print dress. It was the perfect day to opt for something lightweight and flowy. It was also the perfect dress to try on Helmut Lang’s new leather jackets for spring. An insta fix for all those dresses that you wouldn’t necessarily wear every day – throw on a leather jacket or even a casual, tailored cotton jacket and, Helmut Lang does that look so well, slip your feet into a pair of Repetto ballet flats for day or your favorite heels for night and you’re set!

Making my selections for spring. I love how wearable their muted color palette is and that they work so well with a wild print like the one I’m wearing.
