DESERTED

 
 ASOS dress // Givenchy shoes

wearing a mini dress and stilettos in the desert because, you know, that's normal. in addition to ambient sunsets and the perfect dose of dry heat before the sweltering sets in here in Houston, Santa Fe offers incredible food, spa treatments and resort hikes. if you are ever there, order the crab cakes at Geronimo and dine on the patio at The Compound

ALBERTINA



it's been a while since i have had a shoe crush this hard. maybe not since the Isabel Marant Blackson boots? hard to say. but these babies have been on my mind and just won't quit. but 3K for a shoe? for a handbag, yes, but i have never paid that much for a pair of shoes, have you? 

Givenchy Albertina, you make me want to break my own rules. available here

Cayman





a few more shots from Grand Cayman Island. such a fun and relaxing vacay. if you ever make it to the island, here is a list of must-do's:

~stay at the Ritz. it sits on the prettiest part of 7 mile beach and has everything you need from restaurants to water sports.  the restaurants (Seven and Taikun) are among some of the best on the island. it's a great place to bring kids. 
~definitely order a pina colada and a mahi mahi sandwich at Bar Jack. i'm not usually one for frozen drinks but this one it just. too. good. 
~dine at Calypso outside at a table by the water. order the famous sticky toffee pudding. the service is incredible and the fish is fresh and delicious. this is a must
~have dinner at Eduardo's and order the mussels. delish! the restaurant sits in the back behind a bar that turns into a nightclub. it's a little misleading but once you tuck around back into the restaurant it opens to a fabulous stone hideaway that resembles an Italian osteria. 
~head to Havana club for local live music (call before to make sure there is a band lined up). be sure to note the colorful artwork on the walls by a local artist. i couldn't leave without one. 
~have Sunday brunch at Luca
~rent a catamaran for the day and head to Sting Ray City with a stop over at Rum Point. 

enjoy!

STYLESTALKER



one of my all time favorite island outfits, by Australian based brand Stylestalker. hard to stare at a computer screen after 5 days in paradise, and confused as to why i am not being served pina coladas at 11am. 

paired with Dolce Vita Archer sandals

more photos soon!
