Top: Madison (similar here & here), Denim: Rag & Bone, Flats: Chloe, Bag: Celine.

The sleeve is king this season!  Bell, ruffled, oversized, puffed-I’ve seen it all.

The queen of the statement sleeve is Caroline Constas and while I’m in love with each and every piece, my 5’1 frame is many times swallowed in the layers of volume. Because of this, I usually choose a top that’s not “over the top” with all the bells and whistles 🙂

Anguilla round 3


Scarf: Theodora & Callum (similar here & here), Hat: here, Swim: Marysia (also love these)-Shopbop discount code: GOBIG17

When planning our 5 year anniversary, my husband and I unanimously agreed it was back to Anguilla we go. We discovered this secluded island in 2012 on our honeymoon and visited again in 2015.  The people, food and of course the surroundings make this spot super relaxing and definitely an escape from NYC.

I thought I’d share a few pics to start as I’ll be doing a part 2 on the food and where go on the island.  We are already planning our next trip!

Stars and Stripes


Finding the prefect sneaker has always been a challenge and with this season’s endless choices, it was hard to narrow down. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Chuck Taylors and Golden Goose but I just couldn’t resist the playful vibe of Gucci’s new breed of kicks. The collection as a whole is happy and colorful and just makes your heart feel good when you see it.

For someone who loves classic pieces, a fun pair of shoes is always up my alley.  I tend to get stuck in a rut, sometimes buying the same basic pieces in neutral colors that I know will stand the test of time but are not always the most fun.  I find the best balance is always a happy accessory.  The classic gucci web stripe with playful stars are the perfect mix!

Sneakers: Gucci, Bag: Chanel, Denim: Rag & Bone (also love these).
