You know when you buy a really amazing piece of clothing and you love it so much that you have to style your entire look around it? Well, that’s how I feel about my top today. It’s so fun, subtly intricate and interesting that I was totally inspired.
My top sort of has a menswear touch. The pinstripe fabric almost looks like it was originally a men’s dress shirt that was refashioned into what it is now. To play with that look, a juxtaposed it with a pretty black bow.
I also added a pair of retro sunglasses.
Time for a little sparkle. My necklace will do the trick.
I’m still obsessed with my “lait de coco” bag. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Karl Lagerfeld is a genius and this Chanel bag is the perfect example of that fact.
I wanted to add a little more shine so I chose metallic pumps.
Et, voila! My look is complete.

I always hate it when vacation ends, but at the same time, am so happy for the experience. This experience, as experiences go, was definitely top notch, so I’m leaving Kiawah Island very happy.
A nice, quiet day at the beach was just what I needed to wrap things up. Of course, for something like this, I kept things casual.
I chose a flowy top and printed shorts and tied my hair into an easy, messy top knot.
Flat shoes were a must.
Oh, how I love the beach. I feel so rejuvenated.
Remember to take a little time for yourself. Treat yourself to a nice trip, or if you can’t, give yourself a quick staycation and do something that’s just for you. You’ll leave so much more ready to face the world than before.
Wishing you all lots of joy and happiness this weekend!

I love vacations. Relaxing in all this beautiful scenery is such a great way to recharge. The gardens at our hotel were so lush and beautiful, it was hard not to feel at peace.
My Missoni top worked so well as a coverup. The brand’s prints are classic and I usually try to pack at least one piece when I’m traveling to the beach.
Vacations are all about comfort, so I wore flat sandals.
I went for a one piece on this particular day. I love the colorblocked detail here. It really makes my turquoise nails pop too!
How awesome are these embellished sunglasses?
Slip these babies on with any simple outfit and you’re sure to make a statement.

Hi, Lovelies! Today I walked down the boardwalk to see the ocean. The weather was absolutely perfect. For my walk, I slipped on a flowy white lace coverup which I wore over a floral-print swimsuit.
I wasn’t able to snap a picture of it, but there was a big group of deer passing behind me. They didn’t seem scared of humans at all. It was such a lovely moment.
You can see how I am happy by my facial expression. This beach vacay is just what the doctor ordered.
Isn’t my bag so cute? The great thing about it is that I didn’t buy it. Neiman Marcus gave it to me as a gift when I purchased my coverup. That a sweet deal, right?
I’m obsessed with my ETRO swimsuit. I actually mentioned in a recent post that I’m on the host committee for the ETRO store grand opening in Buckhead later this month. Click here for details.

One of my favorite jewelers, Victor Velyan, is in town! You might remember that I introduced him to you all on my blog about a year ago. His pieces are so unique that it’s hard not to love them. Victor recently held an event at Neiman Marcus to showcase his newest “project” and it was drool-worthy to say the least. My friend, Su Longman, who is also a huge Victor Velyan fan, hosted the luncheon. Below are a few photos of some of Victor’s new pieces. Enjoy!
Sometimes, layered jewelry is the best kind.
Guests were excited.
These are definitely statement pieces.
Of course, I also had to capture some photos of the uber-chic crowd.
Atlanta’s socialites stopped by.
Posing with models.
So good to see Doug and Chris.
Renowned gemologist, Edward Boehm was in attendance to teach us about some of the gems that Victor uses in his pieces.
Who wouldn’t want to add one of these stones to their collection?
They’re absolutely stunning.
Su makes a pretty good jewelry model if I do say so myself.

I’m at the beach and haven’t posted any swimwear photos. That changes today! Completing your beach look isn’t just about finding the right swimsuit. Coverups are important too. I chose a light, flowy, printed one-shoulder caftan. I paired my caftan with a floppy had a thick-soled sandals. I’m obsessed with this trend. It keeps your feet comfy and also adds a few inches to your silhouette.
Beachwear requires that you carry a more casual bag. I chose an embellished woven tote.
My caftan comes with a belt, however, it can be worn without if you’d rather go for a more relaxed, flowy look.
Enough with the coverup…
It’s swimsuit time! This simple gingham-print bikini is perfect for a beach day.
Who says you can’t swim in jewelry? The key is to pick simple pieces that you wouldn’t mind getting wet, which is why I went with these little beaded bracelets.
I hope you all enjoy your days as much as I’m enjoying mine. Till next time!
