When I’m on the beach, at the pool, or anywhere that there’s lots of sunshine, a wide-brimmed hat is never far from me. And while the assumption that I’m trying to protect my unicorn hair is an accurate one, my sun protection obsession is far more deeply rooted- in my family tree.
Dubai was a whirlwind- our mother-daughter trip was just five nights- but it was such a gorgeous place to explore. Whether created by man (as so much of it is) or Mother Nature, the UAE took my breath away over and over again.
Checking in from NYFW!
This week is positively nutty, in the best possible way. For me, it’s been a circus of early mornings and late nights, shows and events and meetings, and treating a parade of Ubers and yellow cabs like mobile offices, dressing rooms, and nap pods. And y’all- it couldn’t be more exhilarating.
Right before we moved, we escaped the packing madness for a short staycation near the beach. The Kinney in Venice was kind enough to host us for a little respite, and it was so nice to run away from the mess. It blows my mind just how endless packing was- such a beating. Comparatively, the Kinney was heaven on earth!
The wind farms outside of Palm Springs are some kindof gorgeous.
Palm Springs is pretty much a dream. I’ve blogged about it before (we’ve celebrated my birthday and lots of weekends there) but it really is one of my happy places!
As a little girl growing up in the NYC suburbs, my favorite field trip of the year was when my class would visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So it’s no surprise that I still love it as an adult- my mom and I spent nearly a whole day there this summer. And though David doesn’t adore museums the way I do, an afternoon at the Met was the perfect respite from a very rainy day during our last trip.
It was just a bonus that it gave me one more look at this year’s Costume Institute exhibit, ManusXMachina, right before it closed. Fashion in the Age of Technology honored designers and the intricacy of couture workmanship, and it may well be my favorite museum exhibit ever.
While we were in New York, though it was for Fall Fashion Week, the weather was unseasonably hot. Since it felt like midsummer, we wanted to take as much advantage of it as we could. So one morning, instead of heading straight to fashion shows, we walked to a little bakery, and made our way into Central Park and to the boathouse.
Man, oh man, it was good to be home in New Orleans. The official excuse for the trip was a wedding, for one of my college roommates and sorority sisters. But we always want to spend time with David’s mom, have friends and family to love on, new babies to meet and kiss, so our weekend in NOLA was a long and busy one.
On Wednesdays, we wear pink… or black-and-white stripes, rather. I’m the furthest thing possible from a mean girl, but my squad game’s real strong, and I’m introducing y’all to some of my favorite blogger babes and our fun collaboration today.
