An Afternoon in Athens

Spent yesterday afternoon Athens, Greece, sight-seeing and shopping. I wore an Alexander Wang knit crop top, vintage shorts, Givenchy sandals, Etnia sunglasses, and vintage sterling silver and crystal jewelry. Changed into my trusty Converse sneakers when it was time to explore the Acropolis.

Vacation Days

These past few days have been spent exploring various cities across the Mediterranean coast and taking on a brand new adventure each day. Here are some photos...
The beautiful beach in Monaco where we spent hours at a local restaurant and enjoyed the most mouthwatering oysters and shrimp!
Wearing vintage 50s skirt, Top Secret bandeau, Karla Deras for Roman Luxe triangle earrings and pinky ring, Givenchy chain bracelet, and Super sunglasses.
Pistachio, strawberry, and rum raisin gelato from Florence. 
Slipped into a crochet dress sent to me by Emma for an early dinner on the ship...
The dresses are handmade in South Africa and each sale helps families in both Zimbabwe and South Africa! Worn with vintage sterling silver jewelry, Isabel Marant sandals, and American Apparel swimsuit

Day One in Barcelona

My family and I are taking a cruise along the Mediterranean coast and the port is located here in Barcelona, so we flew in a couple days earlier to experience the culture and soak up the endless amounts of inspiration. Here is a taste of what I saw on my first day here....
We headed to La Boqueria for some strawberry banana juice and fresh fruit. 
Wearing Alexander Wang silk shirtdress, J.Crew tank, Madewell jeans, vintage sterling silver jewelry, and my new Isabel Marant sandals. I've never really been a die-hard fan of Isabel Marant, but I fell in love with these sandals.
The architecture is absolutely mesmerizing. I couldn't stop taking photos of the different buildings throughout the city...
Can't wait to share more photos!

Roman Luxe x Revolve Party

Last night I celebrated the launch of Roman Luxe which was hosted by Revolve Clothing at the Chateau Marmont penthouse. I had such an incredible time with all my friends and family! Here are some photos that captured the ambiance of the night...
Wearing the Josephine dress designed by Shareen, YSL envelop clutch, Karla Deras for Roman Luxe drop chain earrings and faux python ring.
My collection was displayed on trees throughout the penthouse...
Kanon Vodka made two signature cocktails for the night- Luxe Lemonade and Karla's Krush.
Documentation of the night via Instagram. Posing with the exquisite RachelJules, and Olivia, Jimmy Choos and my Roman Luxe ring, the jewelry bar, and a back shot of my dress.
Romantic setting near the fireplace and rooftop view overlooking the city (photos courtesy of Olivia),  Adrian and I looking very jubilant, and a quick snapshot of me and Christine towards the end of the night. 
Hope you enjoyed the post!

Scarf Print

I've had this vintage blouse for ages- I love the pale scarf print so much! My trousers are from Anthropologie. I rarely go into that store because it's a little too boho for my taste, but I was looking for a fancy doorknob and found these pants instead.
Also wearing Louboutin pigalle pumps, vintage earrings and anklet, and Coach snakeskin clutch.

Happy Friday!

L'eau De Chloé

I was so honored when Chloé asked me to create my own interpretation of their new fragrance L'eau De Chloé. It's a modern day floral fragrance with very cool woodsy notes- a perfect scent for summer. Inspired by their recent ad campaign, I went out and shot a few photos in the grassy fields out the city...
For these last two photos I used the new L'eau de Chloé photo app. You can also add pretty filters to your photos and participate in their prize-winning contest!
