Travel in Prints: Bermuda

On (or around) my birthday, which is August 19th, I like to get out of the city and see a little something different. This year was no different. I enlisted a couple of girlfriends into taking  a quick jaunt with me to Bermuda!The idea of pink sand beaches really had me intrigued, and being that it's only an hour and a half flight from NYC, it was a no-brainer. Needless to say, it wasn't too difficult getting my girls to come along. ;-)

We spent most of our time relaxing on Horseshoe Bay beach (since it was so close to our hotel & absolutely gorgeous!), but we did get to venture into town for a bit.

Packing tips for Bermuda:

  • Lots of flowy, comfy dresses - the high was only about 78 while we were there, but it feels *much* warmer than that. I'd packed a couple pairs of pants for the evenings, but only ended up wearing a jumpsuit one night to dinner, because it was a bit rainy earlier in that day.
  • Bright & colorful swimwear! The beaches are absolutely stunning, and you'll want to take lots of pictures
  • Comfy walking shoes - we walked quite a bit around Hamilton one evening, and I had to switch shoes with one of my girlfriends because her feet were hurting towards the end of the night.

And now... pics. Enjoy!

Travel in Prints: Aruba with HeyGorjess

The Summer '17 collection from Vêtu de Joy, is bright, fresh and suited for palm trees and tropical weather and will be released on their 2nd year anniversary, May 15, 2017. The team traveled to the cactus-laden deserts of Aruba to shoot travel and style-loving social influencer, Jessica Franklin (@heygorjess) along with Raushannah Kornegay (@simplyshannah) to showcase how limitless your style and your dreams should be. Shot by internationally published street style and portrait photographer, Denisse Benitez, (@thugnanny_) the pieces took on new life in this unsuspected setting.

Taking a temporary departure from their usual love affair with structural stripes, the newest collection combines their obsession with palm prints and vivid florals with stark white and sunset orange hues.With asymmetrical hemlines, strapless tops, and high slits that reveal elegantly, keeping the wearer both comfortable and sultry, they boast pieces that are colorful for those who love them and fresh, with clean and simple looks for others.

Vêtu de Joy is a Brooklyn-based online retailer, curated by Stylist Mikaela Pabon - wife and mother whose love of prints is both bold and tasteful, which shines through her selection of pieces.

The Kimono

The layering piece. Once I'm dressed, I love adding another piece to give my look that extra umph. In this case, it is this beautiful & vibrant palm print kimono that I just added to the shop. While I loved this monochrome romper all on its own, adding the pop of color (& you know me, it's a second print, which is an added bonus!) made me love it that much more. It was perfect for the intense Aruba sun and I loved that it would catch the wind just right for the perfect dramatic photo (because really, that's what it's all about, right?).

I was able to get some good wear out of on our trip, by wearing it with my tropical print bathing suit, too!
