It’s hard to believe August is upon us! If only the winter months flew by as quickly. This means you must seize the day and be as colorful as you can before its time to take out the darker palette accessories. Here are my picks for the best August accessories:
Katie Bartels Jewelry Palmira earrings in orange // Marc Jacobs beauty nail polish in ultra violet // Knockaround mint green smoke premium sunglasses // Katie Bartels Jewelry Safa stacking bracelets // Katie Bartels Jewelry Tropicana necklace // Spiked Seltzer // Santa Marta Wayuu Half Moon clutch
Ever since I visited Lost Lake last summer during a trip to Chicago, I have been completely infatuated with tiki bars. I love the vibrant colors, bold patterned wall paper, fun drink accessories, on theme drinkware, and abundance of tropical fruit. I dream of one day having a kitchen that has many elements of a tiki bar. So when I discovered The Happiest Hour in NYC’s West Village, I fell in love and knew I had to do a shoot of my Havana Collection amidst its palm-printed wallpaper, pink flamingo logo, and fabulous drink umbrellas. My photography intern extraordinaire Mackenzie Lestan captured these playful images of my designs at Happiest Hour:
Palmira earrings in bright orange
Tropicana earrings in black
cocktails and jewels!
I just returned from a warm getaway to Miami, a very necessary break from winter in NYC! here are some snapshots from my trip:
