What are you looking forward to most about summer?
The warm summer nights and longer evenings with late pastel sunsets. I love the energy of summer and how the days just flow into evening passing time with friends.
What is your current favorite sunglasses style?
I’ve been into smaller specs at the moment. However, the two frames I currently have on rotation are a pair of octagonal Ray Bans and a pair of oversized Celines.
What is your current favorite lip shade/lip product?
My current shade by default is Knotty by Colourpop with the Glossier Rose Balm Dot Com. I love a good nude peachy tone for my lips.
Are you team one-piece or team bikini?
Team bikini. Maybe team one-piece after I’ve eaten.
Why do you love Modeliste’s Mode Around the Globe Getaways?
The incredible destinations, but also getting to meet the girls who I would have never met otherwise. I love that we’re able to create new relationships and memories on these trips with these individuals who are so beautiful on the inside, as well as outside. At the end of the day, we take the memories we made above everything.
Tell us what made Unico Riviera Maya resort such a unique and beautiful destination?
I loved Unico the moment we walked in. The aesthetics of the resort did it for me- from the picturesque lobby, high ceilings, and warm wood tones throughout. The resort was created with a great eye and attention to detail. The food was incredible (the all-inclusive feature & room service posed a danger), the hospitality, the spa (recommend the hot stone massage*), the restaurants. The bathrobe. I’ll surely be back.
What are your 5 key pieces for your summer style?
A sunkissed tan (but also, sunblock!), sunglasses you can wear low on your nose, a wide-brimmed hat, a gingham dress with bare shoulders, wide legged pants to go with a bikini top or a cropped top
Do you have any summer travel plans?
I’m traveling to Tahiti in July with some of my best friends!
What is your current go-to nail polish shade?
What’s something on your summer bucket list this year?
To learn something new, either pattern-making or sewing. Read more books- biographies & fiction.
