This past weekend I was lucky enough to take a little vacation to somewhere I have yet to be. I have always wanted to got to Nantucket, and let me tell you it did not disappoint. It is the cutest place filled with the most amazing people. Everywhere you go, the cobblestone streets are filled with local restaurants, bakeries, and fun boutiques.
Of course, a staple on the East Coast is a good pair of white jeans, and this denim pair from 7 For All Mankind were perfect. I simply paired them all weekend with several light weight sweaters. The weather is still chilly there, so you need to make sure to layer. My new favorite line is Lingua Franca available at Saks Fifth Avenue. They have cute sayings on them, and they are super comfortable.
There was lots of rain so my Hollenberg Brothers boots were great all weekend. When the sun did come out, my new floral Nike trainers were spot on.
We did head down to the beach, and the weather was nice enough to throw on this cute tee and hat the I am obsessed with from J.Crew. I did have a hoodie, but this outfit will definitely be worn there again.
My two favorite stops were a boutique by the name of Salt, and obviously the cash only local ice cream store that has a line around the block. Their vanilla with sprinkles was so amazing, of course I wanted to go back everyday. The women doing the buying for Salt carries all kind of small under the radar jewelry and bathing suit labels.
Two of my favorite things about the island are the lighthouse and the cobblestone streets. They are a reminder of what a beautiful and charming place that the island, known as the “Grey Lady” is. The history of the lighthouse is so unique and paying a visit is a must. When you walk the streets in town, there is a vibe you don’t get anywhere else, and I can’t wait to visit it again!
For those that know me well, I practically live in maxi skirts and dresses all year long. Don’t get me wrong, I still wear my favorite heels, but usually I like to give it my own spin with a great pair of sneakers. This blue skirt from Alice and Olivia may be one of the best I have found in years. The color is gorgeous and the pleats are perfection.
I live in vintage rock tees all the time. In the winter, I love to pair them under a jacket, and pairing it with the unexpected makes if more fun. I came across Madeworn this past week. It is a brand started by the creator of Junk Food Clothing, Blaine Halvorson, who has taken vintage and music apparel to a luxury level.
Being in New York City, I have certainly fallen in love. One of my favorite denim lines The Rails had me marching to my own beat in this Knox jacket. I mean how cute is the New York logo on the back?
Even better, you can customize your own, which I just did with my name on the back. Check it out below.
Last but certainly not least, is the the adidas Gazelle. This shoe has been around since I can remember, and my first pair were back in the seventh grade. I had a pair of navy blue ones that I wore into the ground. They recently have had a revival, and right away I went out to get a basic pair of black that go with everything. One style tip, is to never be shy of mixing things up. A maxi skirt is more unique with a cool pair of sneakers and a vintage rock tee!
It was such a pleasure to attend the Spring 2016 collection for designer and fellow stylist Brandon Maxwell at Saks Fifth Avenue last night. This talented man has been the force behind Lady Gaga this past award season and was just notably placed 12th on The Hollywood Reporter’s power stylist rankings.
Check out some of the pieces from his new collection, and not to be forgotten the beautiful piece that was showcased at the Oscars:
