Los Angeles, CA

I’m heading back to work today after a whirlwind weekend away.  I sunbathed, attended a beautiful oceanside wedding, and spent my days indulging in seafood with friends and family. Needless to say, getting back to the office today has been a bit of a struggle. To ease my way into reality, I’ve decided to dress like I’m still on vacation with this fun, casual look.

I stumbled into these printed pants from H&M a few weeks ago. They were $10 and as cozy as pj’s so I, of course, grabbed them.  While this look here is very bold and casual, if styled with pumps and a nude blouse, you can easily pull off an outfit that’s well-suited for the office.  This ensemble is certainly a bit different for me and while I usually gravitate towards the classic, more polished pieces, every once in a while I like to let my hair down and try something new.

French Friday

July 18, 2014.

Cap Ferrat, The French Riviera.

The French Riviera is truly stunning.

When I arrived in Nice, I was already overwhelmed by the beauty of the coast, the homes we whirled past, the castle-like structures nestled into the surrounding cliffs, and the turquoise ocean water crashing along the shore- and that was only on the thirty minute drive over to Cap Ferrat! 

Only a couple minutes away was Monaco, and so we grabbed dessert over there one night and I felt like I was on another planet.  The buildings looked to be made of gold and I was certain I didn’t see any cars that weren’t “one of a kind” as they say.  Now, let’s be honest, I know nothing about cars, but these looked like the type that were special ordered for Brad Pitt or something.  Drinks were 24 Euro’s a pop and everyone was drinking them like they had free refills, which led me to believe that they had to be infused with some sort of hallucinogen but to my surprise,  they weren’t!

But back to Cap Ferrat- this place was my idea of heaven.  We danced on the docks late at night, ate at restaurants with views that made me question if I was on some sort of airplane, and took long walks along the beach.  We ate the best fish, drank the best Sancerre, and all the while, I attempted my best, “merci beaucoups” , which did not seem to impress any of the locals.  I, of course, took lots of photos but I promise that they will certainly never do this place justice. 

My outfit on this Friday, is from one of my carefree days in Cap Ferrat.  I had just gotten back from a long day at the beach and decided to take a stroll around the harbor before heading off to dinner for the night.  The streets nearby were narrow and lined with delicious cafes and shops and I love nothing more than being within walking distance to a marina- which housed rows of beautiful mega-yaughts.  Since the weather was always warm day and night, (I never had to wear  a jacket at night!) I found this light striped cropped top to be a perfect fit for an afternoon stroll on the French Riviera.  I added a pop of red to my lips and paired it with this knotted headband creating a bit of a French beach look!

Nantucket, MA.

Vacationing on the Cape is a yearly tradition for my family, and because we stay and travel on our boat, it gives us the freedom to hop around from port to port.  Every year we set out to explore some new places that we haven’t yet seen, while peppering in ports that we know and love, which makes for an always interesting vacation!  This year, we were able to get over to Nantucket, and because of the windy weather conditions and high seas, we were able to stay there even longer than we expected, which I loved! 

Nantucket is an island that has a very specific feel to it and as soon as I step off the boat, walk along the pristine docks, lined with hydrangeas, quaint artsy shops, and waterfront bars, I know exactly where I am.  The cobblestone streets make walking in heels a near impossibility and I’m sure it makes for a bumpy car-ride too, but the charm it adds to the town makes it all worth it!

Highlights so far:

  • Singing the night away to live piano music at the island’s famous Club Car restaurant. (Nantucket, MA).
  • Wine, Sangria, & Beer Tastings at Cisco Brewery w/ live music and delicious pizza! (Nantucket, MA).
  • Exploring the island in jeeps and watching the sunset while enjoying fresh local seafood. (Menemsha, MA)
  • Eating homemade ice cream after every meal at Mad Martha’s (Oak Bluffs, MA) and Stars (Nantucket).
  • Diving into Hurricane Arthur-sized waves at South Beach (Vineyard Haven, MA).
  • Finding new treasures in all of the quaint little shops (Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, &  Nantucket MA).

After a day of shopping and spending time at the brewery, Erin and I snapped a couple of quick photos in our dresses- both from Ruche.  It was a cloudy, humid day on the island- perfect for a day away from the boat and beaches.  Erin is wearing a flowy, bright maxi dress- perfect for any summer getaway or a day at the winery.  My dress is from Ruche’s collection last summer but I was waiting for the perfect getatway on the boat to wear it.  The colors are great and call for nautical adventures!  I paired it with some of the new bracelets I’ve picked up along on my recent travels, including my most recent find, the nautical pink and navy anchor wrap bracelet from Keil James Patrick Brand, a local Rhode Island company.  I found this gem at the local shop, Town Pool, located just a couple steps away from where my boat was docked.  It’s always great to find local treasures!  Not only are they adorable, but they’re great reminders of all the places I’ve been.
