While I don’t normally send postcards while I’m holiday, notably strong wi-fi and a well rested stay here at Roundhill Resort in Jamaica has me refreshed and ready to work. Here’s a visual recap on Instagram so far: 1. From where I row in Montego Bay / 2. Sliding down the longest zipline in the Carribean in my Soludos smoking slippers at Chukka Tours / 3. The breath taking view on Good Hope planation / 4. Sea side hangs in my Mikoh suit / 5. The Kim Kardashian of Kats / 6. Paddling back to land / 7. The window view of a golden sunset following a tropical rainstorm / 8. Lobby lounging at Roundhill

the line nyc

Nothing excites me more than a thoughtfully decorated space, so you can imagine how a trip to The Line in SoHo could easily put me over the edge. The Line Apartment is a concept shop that redefines the experience of home furnishing. Curated by a collective of creatives, the space is gorgeously lit and well-adorned with the finest objects found from all corners of the design world. A mix of black and white prints hang on the living room walls, kept in good view of the perfectly tufted Sofa and Hans Wegner chairs that sit nearby. A closet most envied from the scope of a woman who lives by “Less is more” is housed between the end-all of dining room tables and the sun drenched bedroom with a view of the claw foot tub. While shopping the scene, you really get a sense of the woman behind the concept and the customer in focus: She’s well traveled, well connected, and well versed in art. The diverse collection of objects ranging from the designers in the closet to the art and apothecary is a testament to this. If this doesn’t epitomize aspirational living, at the very least it’s shoppable, and only a click away from being yours.

Nicole Miller Syracuse Silk Top / Paige Denim Shorts / Manolo Blahnik Heels

As we’re approaching pre-fall, the transition of seasons has me more conscious than ever about my wardrobe. I can’t deny that my personal style steers closer to the edgier end of a sartorial chart, but when it comes to color I stick to the safeties: black and white with the occasional muted gray or neutral. Nicole Miller‘s latest Warrior collection has me reconsidering. The message behind the campaign is that you don’t have to wear a suit to feel strong, and I couldn’t agree more. Featuring daring prints with bold cuts to match, instead of the usual monochrome I selected this forest green blouse to wear on a Sunday spent sneaking onto strangers’ fire escape. I love that the bold shade of green of this Nicole Miller blouse goes seamlessly with leather shorts and a fearless pair of grommet heels. You can check out the rest of my Nicole Miller picks over on Refinery 29.
