Anguilla round 3

Scarf: Theodora & Callum (similar here & here), Hat: here, Swim: Marysia (also love these)-Shopbop discount code: GOBIG17

When planning our 5 year anniversary, my husband and I unanimously agreed it was back to Anguilla we go. We discovered this secluded island in 2012 on our honeymoon and visited again in 2015.  The people, food and of course the surroundings make this spot super relaxing and definitely an escape from NYC.

I thought I’d share a few pics to start as I’ll be doing a part 2 on the food and where go on the island.  We are already planning our next trip!

Mad for Plaid + Black Friday goodies

Although I usually end up in a food coma, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year.  Foods that are usually foreign to my daily routine are a decadent and welcomed treat, leaves are still turning (in NC) and the shopping season has officially kicked off-Christmas lights and all.  I can run with the best of the Black Friday purists-waking up at 6am, grabbing a cortado and heading to Saks or Nordstrom, but online shopping is also a very appealing and ever growing fabulous option for the crowd phobic shopper to bypass the sale induced frenzies that await outside and inside most stores the day after Thanksgiving.  Below are some of my picks for partaking from the comfort of bed, Friday and throughout the weekend.

Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again (8 weeks to go) and for all the early birds, gift ideas probably started swirling in your heads in August.  I have always loved thinking about and giving gifts.  The beautiful wrapping and the adoration of a well thought out token are always my favorite part of the process.  I’ve decided to compile a collection of ideas to suit both sexes that are either my go to trinkets or items on my gift giving list this year. Happy gifting!

Golden lip mug, Tory Burch book, Wishbone ring stand, Theodora & Callum scarf (ON SALE!), Business card holder, Golden flatware, Jo Malone candle, Mini notebook, Pearl stud statement earrings, fringe gloves.

Neutral bits & bobs

I find a sneaky pre-Winter sale can sometimes be overwhelming.  It seems like it take hours to scroll through all the options and by the time my shortlist is complete, it’s quite frankly become long.  I find that using a pop up sale to snatch basics that will have staying power and get you though the season ahead, are always a good way to go. Here are my top picks for neutral gems, perfect for any closet- after perusing Shopbop’s friend & family selection (25% off sitewide with code: FAMILY25)

Watch: Nixon, Gloves: Carolina Amato, Denim: Frame, Sweater: Mason by Michelle Mason, Sunnies: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Hat: Hat Attack, Booties: Belle by Sigerson Morrison, Clutch: Clare Vivier.
