STYLE | #HustleSundays in Central Park

Quentin and I spent yesterday afternoon working a bit in Central Park. At first we’d about doing another coffee shop, but it’s nice to just be totally outside sometimes. I feel like being outdoors gives me space to think, to breathe. The past two…

STYLE | A Day at The Getty Center, Los Angeles

Happy July! I hope you enjoyed Independence Day weekend and had a lovely time celebrating with family and friends. I was in California for July 4th and had so much fun wedding-ing, tourist-ing and soaking up all the beauty that California has to offer.…

STYLE | Getting Back to Basics

I love clothes, and when I go shopping, I have a tendency to buy things that are bright and bold and may or may not work with anything else in my closet. I just buy what I like, but not always what I need,…

STYLE | HUSTLE SUNDAYS

I’ve missed you all. It’s been over a week since I posted, and I’m trying to make sure that doesn’t happen again! Can we just pause to talk about my life for the past two weeks? Hectic. I’ve taken on some additional projects at…

SHOPPING | AYR SWEATERS

For the past few years, as soon as it starts getting cold, I buy sweaters out of necessity, and as soon as it starts warming up again, I find some way to get rid of them. Until this year, I’ve never really liked the…

STYLE | BANDEAU AND PENCIL SKIRT

One thing I love about being back in South Florida is that I can wear things there that I can’t wear anything else. I can blame wearing short shorts and bra tops on the high heat and humidity. It’s perfectly appropriate to style a…

STYLE | A Beach and a Lighthouse

I finally made it to the beach. Even with all my back-and-forths to South Florida to plan my wedding, I haven’t made it to the beach. Not one time! So I was more than happy to head out to Fire Island this weekend to…

OBSESSED | WEAR A HAT THIS SUMMER

For the month of June, I just couldn’t stop thinking about hats. I’ve NEVER been a hat person. Actually…I take that back. I wore A LOT of hats in undergrad. I had the Kangol-looking furry bucket hat, I had too many fedoras (bleh), and…

STYLE | Summer Office Wardrobe

I had one of those “I have nothing to wear” moments the other day. It probably had something to do with the fact that I’d worn the same top and skirt twice in one work week. Now I mix and match my pieces as…

STYLE | Lazy Sunday

Sometimes, Sundays are lazy, no-fuss, unplanned, go-with-the-flow days. That was yesterday for me. A truly “lazy Sunday.” My grandma cooked ackee and saltfish (with bammy and breadfruit) for brunch. The most work I did all day was re-arrange my closet. I put away all…

HELLO SUMMER! Summer is my absolute favorite season. I love hot weather and cold drinks and leaving the house with almost nothing on…and it’s okay! I’m about ready to head to the beach. I can’t wait until Q and I go down to Florida…

I spotted the prettiest floral iPhone cases on Moorea Seal yesterday. They’re made with real, dried flowers! How beautiful is that? A case like this would be a gorgeous summer update for your phone, no? And each one is handmade and unique. Such a…

  Usually my go-to summer uniform is a sundress, but I lived in crop tops this summer, and I loved every minute of it. Well…I didn’t love wearing crop tops to brunch or dinner. My stomach expands when I eat, which makes for a…
