Just wanted to say a quick hello and to let you know that I am currently working on the full recap post of my week long trip with Celebrity Cruises to the Caribbean! I landed Sunday evening and then had a fun video shoot yesterday, so to be honest I haven’t even had a moment to unpack let alone go through all the photos and videos I took on the trip. But I can’t wait to sort them and also pull together and edit the YouTube video I am going to create this week for you guys. So! Lots to look forward to, but in the meantime, here are a few photos I snapped on my phone last week. Hope everyone is having a happy Tuesday so far and as always, thanks for stopping by! xo
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
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! :)
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!
Before heading back to the city, we had lunch in the town of Hudson and I picked up the most amazing smelling candle from Source Adage NYC called North Atlantic. So good.
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.
We arrived in New Mexico yesterday in the late afternoon, hopped in a rental car and made our way to Santa Fe. After settling into our cute little B&B, we drove into town to explore the main downtown Plaza area. The light was so beautiful and it was the perfect temperature outside.
After walking around a bit and checking out the shops, we headed to dinner at Tomasita’s for some classic Northern New Mexico cuisine. We had yummy crisp beef tacos, blue corn chicken enchiladas and sopaipillas, which I had never had but really enjoyed. Everything was so good!
Afterward, we hung out in our suite and played a few hands of Rummy before heading to bed. All in all, it was a great day and I am so excited to explore more tomorrow!
Guess who’s flying out to Santa Fe tomorrow?! ME! I’m pretty excited to have a change of scenery that is so drastically different than the two coasts that I call my homes. I’m looking forward to desert, dry heat, large open spaces, turquoise… Yep, you could say I’m super stoked.
So I thought instead of sharing outfit photos today, I would do a little roundup of some inspiration photos that I found on Pinterest that struck me as very Southwest meets Boho-chic, if you will.
I’ll be honest, I packed extremely light for this trip home to Seattle and Santa Fe, but I brought with me a few brightly colored dresses, a pair of fringed boots and a couple of hats, which I plan on wearing all this week, so I promise to share a bunch of outfit photos this Thursday as well as next week too.
I also plan on doing some light shopping in Santa Fe and Taos, hopefully snagging another piece of turquoise jewelry, since I absolutely love the ring my parents bought for me from their last trip to Santa Fe, and maybe an accessory or two (read more boots and hats).
Anyhoo, here are some photos that are inspiring me at the moment. Stay tuned for my YouTube video tomorrow, which will share what I am bringing with me on my trip, as well as the usual Weekly Edit blog post, which will feature more shoppable Southwest-inspired, must-have pieces for the wardrobe! xo
In case you haven’t seen my turquoise ring that I am referring to above – here is a photo of it below.
