I have had a love affair with Europe ever since I traveled to France and Italy with my parents right after high school graduation. We celebrated a slew of big moments including my 18th Birthday, my parents turning 50 and their 25th wedding anniversary! It was quite a trip and I loved every second of it…
My Dad and I had to run some errands yesterday but we ended up driving through Queen Anne and came across these gorgeous cherry tree blossoms…

Hi everyone! Just wanted to pop in and say hello and apologize for not posting anything here for the past couple of days. I am currently on a press trip with Celebrity Cruises in the Caribbean and unfortunately the Wi-Fi is a bit spotty, but you can always follow along with me on my travels via Instagram and Snapchat at @mystylepill (wherever I get a signal) so make sure to tune in! xoxo
(Me in Spain two summers ago.)
It’s been pretty dreary and rainy here in New York, which has me yearning to take a warm weather trip somewhere. Not only is it cold and wet here, I also just did a really fun bathing suit photo shoot for a magazine yesterday, so I think the combination of being super tan (the beauty team used an awesome tanning spray called Bondi Sands) and wearing swimsuits all day (my new favorite brand is Gottex) really had me jonesing to get out of town and head to a tropical location.
That said, I still have a bit of time before heading to warmer climates, so instead I thought I would do a roundup of my current favorite beachy items to put on my wishlist until then.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to head up to Chatham, New York thanks to Garnet Hill, with Grace and Krystal but realized I hadn’t shared the rest of the photos that I took while I was there. So I thought today would be a good opportunity for a mini photo diary!
The house we stayed in was so adorable and I couldn’t get over the colors of the leaves. I felt like I matched the foliage! :)
Here’s a snap of my room and some the fun goodies from the brand. I have been burning the two candles from Haus Interiors (Manor Haus in Basil Ginger and Gate Hause in Birchwood) nonstop. They make the whole apartment smell amazing! Unfortunately it’s been a bit too warm to wear my monogrammed PJs, and sweet wool slippers from Garnet Hill but I fully intend on cozying up in them once it’s get a bit cooler outside.
This is a photo of the pool that is outback. Sadly we didn’t take advantage of it, even though it was heated. But admittedly I did forget my swimsuit so that would have been an interesting situation!
Before dinner, we headed to the Hudson-Chatham Winery where we sat outside by the fire pit, sipped wine and munched on cheese and crackers. We really lucked out with the weather too – it was warm with just enough of a cool breeze in the air.
Afterward we headed back to the house where we had a delicious farm-to-table meal prepared for us, then sat by the fireplace and roasted s’mores. Pretty perfect evening if you ask me!
Thank you so much, Garnet Hill, and to everyone who was involved in making this amazing getaway happen. xo
This is a bit of a throwback post at this point, but these photos were taken by the talented Alex Ignacio when I was in Santa Fe with my parents, in early September. I had stumbled across this cute place called Modern General, (which is also opening up a new shop in Austin shortly!) and they got in contact with me about doing a fun mini photo and video shoot showcasing the shop. Alex Ignacio is the photographer who works at Narrative Media, and who was kind enough to shoot these photos (as well as the video, which is to come soon). It was just fun to work together on such a short and spontaneous basis especially with such an amazing shop and space as our backdrop.
For those of you that followed me along on my Snapchat, you definitely know about these cowboy boots. My parents and I went to Kowboyz to find a good pair and I ended up walking away with these bad boys. I really can’t wait for it to be a fall and style these with some dark jeans, a white button down and a leather jacket. Yes, yes and yes.
