Priceless Jules

neon8 dots stripes01 I stumbled upon Jules’ blog and I fell madly in love. She has the best style and always looks so effortlessly cool. Plus, I love that she looks just as chic in a pair of converse high tops and she does in sky high heels. As power-walking New Yorker, this kind of thing is right up my alley. Go on wit cha bad ass self Jules! You rock!

Wow! I am back from my trip to Anguilla - here's a sneak peek. There was lots of time spent soaking in the pool and frankly, not much else. I'll do a full Tripnotes next week, so stay tuned!

What To Pack: Memorial Day in Anguilla


I’m heading here this Memorial Day and here’s what I’m taking with me:

1. I'm so excited about this Mara Hoffman bikini. The print is crazy and the I could get away with wearing the top with a skirt to diner.

2. This stuff is my jam. Expensive, but worth it as I am banking on it protecting me from some pretty heavy UV damage.

3. This weekender is the perfect size for a quick trip and I don't mind if it gets sandy.

4. Old faithful. This girl comes with me whenever I go somewhere sunny. Available at Calypso St. Barths.

5. Ray Ban Wayfarers - Totally unoriginal I know, but I can’t live without these.

6. My Zara sandals have already gotten a lot of play this season. They're just the perfect bit of glam.

7. These skinny jeans are my summertime staple.

What are your plans for Memorial Day? What's in your weekender?

Later this week, I’ll be lucky enough to be lounging poolside here, at the Viceroy Anguilla. I can’t stop looking at these gorgeous images of the Kelly Wearstler designed interiors and am absolutely pinching myself in anticipation! I love the casual luxury of these photos and the calming colors (cream on cream on cream, anyone?). Can't believe I'm going to see this bad boy in person!! You can expect an overload of photos when I get back. You've been warned... images found here. p.s. coincidentally, the lovely blog, a piece of toast, just did a post about this!

Kennedy Wedding


I've always loved these images of Jackie and John F. Kennedy on their wedding day...they look so young and full of hope. They had 10 bridesmaids, over 600 guests and pineapple salads.

Soft spot for Soft Shell...


I love me some seafood. In fact, I'm on the see food diet; I see food, I eat it. So naturally, this NY Times article about soft shell crab recipes thrilled me to no end. I love the idea of Oyster Cracker crusted soft shell crab this summer. Find the recipes here.

Lil Stella

I fell in love with these hilarious fruit print t-shirts by Stella McCartney. And don't these little boys look so cute? At $44, it may be more than you're used to spending for a kids t-shirt, but compared to the price of Stella's knickers, these are a cinch! To buy someone you love a lil stella, go here.

Le Dix-Sept

I've blogged before about my love for San Francisco, so it's no surprise that this SF based bakery has me feeling ready to head West. Le Dix-Sept makes macaroons to order in delicious flavors like Hibiscus with Strawberry confit. If you're anywhere near Cali, order some here so I can live vicariously through you!

It's filling the void left behind by Domino, since I heard the latest Domino was a dud. To find some favorites of your own, check out Lonny here.

Chloe's Crib

1 2 3 4 5 I loved these images of actress Chloe Sevingy's East Village home. Got to admit, her yellow vinyl chair and country meets city kitchen have got me green with envy. And how cool is her nautical themed bathroom? You can read more about her decorating style here.
