Dashing through the sand….

December 24, 2018

It’s that time of year when the world falls in love with snow, evergreen trees, wrapping paper and holiday lattes. While these are arguably the best highlights of chilly winter months, I’ve come into my own Christmas-time tradition…traveling to somewhere a bit warmer. It’s a gift to myself that I know I’ll enjoy, and something to look forward to when my gray New York winter becomes too much to handle. It’s also a once-a-year opportunity to mix wintery holiday pieces with glam, hot weather ensembles for an unexpected (but always stylish) juxtaposition.

Traveling has always been a huge source of inspiration for me. I’m fortunate enough to have visited some truly beautiful places with unbelievable venues, delectable food, and of course, stunning scenery. Each time I step foot onto new territory, fresh styling ideas spark to life. If I had to determine the most influential element of these memorable trips, it’s always the colors around me. Flowers on trees, patterned beach blankets, vivid plating at restaurants, and even a glimpse of a bird or a fish can influence some of my most successful looks.
