Distinctive Rustic Elegance

 Photos by Carlie Statsky

My family owns the most beautiful country estate called Devine Ranch and recently we all agreed it would be wonderful to share it with a select number of people each year for weddings and special events. A few of my favorite event industry creatives came together to help us capture the ranch's rustic yet elegant aesthetic and the results were a-ma-zing! With styling by the fabulous Esla Events, rentals from One True Love Vintage, florals by Fionna Floral, beauty by Skyla Arts, jewelry by Haute Bride, and paper goods by Aerialist Press every detail was just perfect. All captured by the uber-talented Carlie Statsky. Find more from the shoot on Style Me Pretty.

Fashionable Interiors

Preppy Sophistication

Parisian Chic

Intellectual Glamour

Style isn't seen in fashion alone, interior design can say as much about a persons aesthetic as their outfits. That is why I have this series of posts... see more here. My home reflects my personal style as much as my wardrobe. If you are seeking some inspiration for your daily look or your home try these three styles to see if they fit.

Summer Reading

Summer is all about having fun, relaxing and trying new things. Books are a great way to find inspiration. I am currently obsessed with these six books. For a little fashion inspiration read the photo book from denim duo Emily Current Merritt Elliott or learn about how two women started Juicy Couture with just $200. If you are in the mood for a little health adventure try making a superfood smoothie or studying about our amazing bodies with the help of Cameron Diaz. Or maybe you are planning a summer soiree and need a fun recipe from the Forest Feast. And don't forget about that amazing lifestyle ideas that pour out of Rachel Zoe's new book. Happy Summer!

The Bermuda Diaries

 Boat life
 Horseshoe Bay
 Bermuda has over 100 shipwrecks
Castle Island 
 Tuckers Point Private Beach 
Downtown Hamilton Streets
 Bermuda's Most Popular Form of Transportation: Scooter
Lobster Avocado Mango Salad
Unfinished Church in St. George's

I recently took a trip to the amazing island of Bermuda. It is a magical place where the water is as clear as the air and shallow for miles. We called the Rosewood Tuckers Point our home for ten days.  We snorkeled to a nearby shipwreck, explored the entire island on motor scooters, and relaxed on pink sand beaches. These are some of my favorite pictures from our adventure. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Who said fashion has to be uncomfortable? We live in clothes everyday and personally I love being able to move around freely while also looking like I actually tried when I got dressed this morning. That is why I'm slightly obsessed with great denim and boyfriend everything. This mens shirt by Travota is amazingly comfy. All I had to do was pair it with my favorite paige denim and add fun accessories like my new fringe bag by Cut n' Paste and Alexander McQueen heels.
