Beach Waves

WELCOME TO MIAMI

A few months back I went on a weekend getaway to surprise my sister Amber for her birthday! We had the best time celebrating and hanging poolside at the Fontainebleu Hotel with her best girlfriends.

Every time I visit Miami, I wonder…can I live here?! A 2 hour flight from NYC and just like that you’re in paradise!

For this look, I kept it strictly Diddy style — all white everything.

There’s nothing like a white V-neck and jeans. I’m a huge fan of this simple look for summer days into night. To break it up a bit – I tied a destroyed denim jacket around my waist to add some texture. A pair of nude heels is a great way to elevate your look into evening and add some flare.

The sunnies of the season? Reflective shades. You can have so much fun with your selfie game with a pair of mirrored sunglasses. This unisex trend has been spotted everywhere from the signature Dior’s you see all over your Instagram feed to a cheap thrill at Forever 21 which has now become my favorite spot to stock up on trendy shades. (It’s a problem.)

This pair is by Aerie — I love the clear white frames with neon green lenses. They just so happened to match my palm tree backdrop perfectly.  (I promise I didn’t plan it!)

It’s super important to invest in a great pair of white skinny jeans. This pair is from American Eagle Outfitters and is part of the new Denim X collection. The jeans have a next level of stretch that won’t bag out. They truly hold their shape and were a staple my entire trip!

Throw on a straw hat and a corally-orange red lip with some tossled beach waves and I was ready to take on Miami in style.

Cue Will Smith.

TRAVEL DIARY: MONTAUK, NY

Living in NYC is amazing but at times all you want is to get out of the city. The destination that’s trending these days? The “un-Hamptons” otherwise known as Montauk.

This was my first time venturing to a New York beach and I loved every minute of it. Its incredible that just under a three hour drive you can be transported to a whole different world. New York City is a distant memory in your rear view mirror.

Montauk is at the very end of Long Island and is surrounded by breathtaking views of endless water. Known for it’s laid-back surf attitude, Montauk was filled with cute boutiques, great restaurants and lounges.

My personal favorite? The Surf Lodge. Everything in that hotel was Instagram worthy – I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the decor. Not to mention, it was the site of my very first Lobster Roll and it did not disappoint.

I highly recommend Montauk for an easy getaway if you’re looking to venture out of the city and want some easy-breezy beach vibes.

Hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed being there!
