Dream in Sea Green

J Crew Swimsuit

Do you always gravitate to the same color?  This is it for me.  Thank goodness it works on brunettes.  I’m loving the above swimsuit from J Crew, though I’d rather cut off a small appendage than put it on after the holidays.  Seriously.

Equipment Sweater

Now this is more like it!  Throw this oversized cashmere beauty from Equipment on with some leggings or skinny jeans and the sins of overindulgence are washed away.

Bounkit Earrings

Love these Onyx and Amethyst Earrings from Bounkit.

Barneys Fur Vest

Ridiculously indulgent, mildly impractical.  But this vest from Barneys would be warm and toasty.  Which DOES makes it practical.  Kind of. Okay, I’m reaching.  But it is sooo cold here!

Agate Costers

My favorite agate coasters.  I bought them at the amazing Megan Winters Atelier in Lake Forest, but similar available here.

Mulberry Bayswater Bag

Mulberry’s Petrol Snakeskin Printed Bayswater bag available at Stylebop.  Sigh.

Dining Room

Tory Burch iPhone case

A cheeky little iPhone case from Tory Burch, on sale here.

Lafco Game Room Candle

I’ll admit it.  I have a Lafco candle addiction.  When you are done burning one completely, you can pop it in the freezer to get the remaining wax out and use the beautiful glass as a vase.  How’s that for being green?

A favorite painting.

Claus Porto Soap

Crazy over Claus Porto’s Brise Marine shea butter soap, available here.

Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Pumps

Dreamy suede pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti, on sale here.

J Crew Grand Stone Bracelet

And finally, the beautiful (and budget friendly!) Grand Stone bracelet from J Crew.

What to Wear: Traveling in Style

One of my closest friends is traveling to China this week with her husband and three young boys (yes she is a brave soul!).  This morning while we were discussing trip details over coffee, the conversation turned to the best thing to wear on long flights.  Below, the short list:

1) A great pair of worn-in jeans or leggings.

James Neo Beau Boyfriend Jeans (on sale here in  a less distressed version)

2) A thin, over-sized wrap or scarf (great as an impromptu blanket or pillow).

Seawater Blooms Cashmere Silk Scarf (available here)

3) Flats or short boots for easy removal.  No running shoes allowed!

Pretty Ballerinas Dark Silver Snakeskin Printed Leather Flats (available here)

4) The absolute softest t-shirt you can find.  (I am completely addicted to James Perse’s white tanks and tees.)

James Perse Casual Short Sleeve Tee (available here)

5) A neutral lightweight cardigan, jacket or blazer that can be used throughout vacation.

Free People Boucle Jacket (available here)

6) A great tote or cross-body bag in a forgiving color.

See by Chloe Bryoni Large Double Function Bag (on sale here)

7) And last but not least, a fabulous pair of over-sized sunglasses to hide the dark circles!

Barneys New York Sarah Sunglasses (available here)
