A few more photos from Montauk in my fitting Hampton Stripe top from Show Me Your Mumu! 

Missing the beach, but thankfully I'll get my fix again starting tomorrow! I'll be in the Caribbean for a few days leaving tomorrow in the AM :) I've only been once with my parents when I was 18 months, so I don't count what I can't remember.

More beach photos with crystal clear water to come! 



Barefoot in Montauk

{ootd: Faithfull The Brand romper. Krewe Du Optic sunnies. QuickSilver hat.}

Montauk was my second home for the month of July. The weather is perfect there, although I can't say I have a tan to show for it. The commute is another story...

The train is an experience in itself. Hundreds of people running at a train once the track is called. Not to mention, it's the real life version of the Hunger Games fighting for a seat. If you're part of the majority of people escaping work early and showing up to the train late, you're left standing for 3 hours. Thankfully, friends and drinks will keep you preoccupied - just make sure you don't drink too much that you have to wait in the 30 minute bathroom line.

Now that I've thoroughly convinced you to spend your weekend out east, let me tell you about the greatness that is Montauk. It reminds me of a college town on the beach, except school is in session during the summer. Think of a small fraction of New York City's nightlife in a much smaller town like Santa Cruz. Everyone goes to the same bars, restaurants, and beaches so it's easy to keep unintended tabs on people. Surf Lodge was only a few blocks from our summer house, and seeing one of my favorite bands, St. Lucia, on their patio was one of the highlights of my summer! The Sloppy Tuna on the beach is the ideal sloppy day drinking spot, always playing a great assortment of tunes. And the list continues...I'll mention a few more in future posts to come.

The romper I'm wearing was my go-to outfit. It's a perfect day-to-night piece, and there were plenty of those...who needs a shower when you have beach hair?

Sharing a house for a month in a beautiful beach town with my best friends was truthfully the perfect way to celebrate summer. I wouldn't have wanted to spend my July any other way.


Pastel pink

{Jonathan Simkhai pastel pink two piece & Illesteva sunnies}

A good two piece is a rare find. I found this gem on the Net-a-porter summer sale. It's not too late to head to their site! It just so happened to be a perfect 'fit for the NYC Trunk Club launch party which was a wild success. I'm lucky to work with so many amazing people in an industry I love.

Feeling grateful on this beautiful summer day. 



Saturdays in BK

{ootd: Show Me Your Mumu skirt. JCrew denim vest. Elorie white leather shoes. Gucci vintage top.}

Running around Williamsburg with my babe. It's changed astronomically since we started dating 2 1/2 years ago. It's one of the hipest places in NYC. We are in route to a patio party. Summer Saturdays in the city are actually enjoyable as its not quite too hot yet. Counting down the days until we rent a house in Montauk for July!



Spring coats

Spring coats - There is nothing more satisfying after a long winter than finally wearing shorts. It's that 55 degree and sunny temperature that's appropriate for showing a little skin, but a layer is still ample to keep warm in the shaded areas. Spring and fall jackets are one of my favorite items to invest in. Growing up in San Francisco, a light jacket was all I really needed on a cold day. 

Thank you to my lovely boy-toy for snapping these on our walk to morning coffee. It was a more than perfect Sunday in this 'fit.

'fit: Illesteva sunnies, Rag & Bone shorts, Splendid tee, Chinese Laundry flats, & vintage Rebecca Moses long coat


'chella vibes

The Coachella Music Festival is an annual tradition for me. It's crazy to think how long I've been going. Having spent my college years in LA, it was a simple drive and a perfect excuse to visit my wonderful grandmother who has lived there since I was a kid. The dessert became one of my favorite getaways, so I make it out there even from NYC. I always stay with her and her boyfriend in La Quinta, and they are gracious hosts. Who could say no to the best breakfast places around Palm Dessert? That's our thing - breakfast, before a long day of gallivanting on the polo fields with my friends from artist to artist! 

Can you tell my breakfast outfit from my Coachella one?

'fit 1: Kiini swimsuit, Levi's shorts, Illesteva sunnies, Converse sneakers.

'fit 2: Michael Kors dress, Sam Edelman sandals, DKNY vintage finge jacket (thanks to my moms closet full of treasures), Ray Bans blue lenses.
