A Look Back at 2013
























Hey! Sorry I've been a tad MIA as of late. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I mentioned in this


that I am currently enjoying the sunshine in St.Barths. I can't wait to share more of that with you tomorrow but if you can't wait, head over to 


 for quicker updates. I'd thought I would share a little recap of 2013. I chose one picture from each month that I feel represents my personal style this year. Hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane.

It's crazy to see how much you have changed in twelve months. I have learned so much over the course of 2013 and experienced things I've couldn't do without blogging. I am so incredibly thankful for each moment of 2013. I have new skills and wisdom that I will take with me for years to come. I can't wait to start 2014 with a fresh mindset and new goals. Here is to a great 2014. Thank you for all your endless support. XO

One of my favorite movies is Charade with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. I love this movie for several reasons; the acting, the fashion, and the "thriller-vibe". Audrey and Cary are my two favorite actors. Their charisma in this movie is spot on. My second favorite thing is the fashion. The chic/Parisian/spy-esque look that Audrey does oh-so-well. The movie takes place in Paris too! {Fun Fact} The 1st time I watched Charade was in Paris with my brother. Funny, isn't?!

This look was inspired by the looks Audrey sports throughout the film. I changed it a little bit by adding a big sparkly ring, and sporty sunnies. Leave a comment below if you have ever seen Charade!

New England Pride

If you remember my old post Autumn Beach, I talk about how much I love being near the water in the colder months. Something about the calm water and hazy sky just makes me giddy. Because I’m a sailor perhaps I’m just naturally drawn to the water. My favorite places to go are on the water; Newport, St.Barts, La Rochelle, and quaint towns in New England. I am so lucky to be sailing in some of these amazing places too! My second favorite thing about these places is the amazing brands and lines that come out of them. St.Barts with it’s fashionable boutiques, La Rochelle with its quintessential French shops and brands, and New England with its classic and nautical style.

Most New England brands are made by hand in their home state. The brands are all about fine detailing and perfecting the simple New England style yet tweaking it to keep it authentic. Frank Clegg has mastered the art of timeless craftsmanship with their leather goods. I’ve been dying for a bag ever since my older brother, Reid, received one for his 19th birthday (yes, I do look to my brother for style inspiration-he has mastered classic style). Some of my favorite New England brands are Sail to Sable and The Ropes Maine. Sail to Sable is a line of stylish tunic dresses in a variety of prints and fabrics. The one I’m wearing below is corduroy giving it a little bit of a cozy/winter feel. I paired it with a leather belt to cinch the waist. Lastly, I think my love for The Ropes has been showed enough ! (See here and here) New England has both abiding brands that empathizes the original “prep of New England” look but also has up and coming designers that are willing to shake things up a little.

Anguilla Tidbits

I hope you had a wonderful week. Sorry for the delay of posts this week. I needed to catch up on my schoolwork, and I just came down with a virus-lucky me! All these pictures are a mix of outtakes and pretty moments that I captured from my trip. Be sure to read my two outfit posts from Anguilla here and here. I had such a fantastic time at the Viceroy, and cannot wait to return back next year!
