What to Pack for the Private Jet: 5 Essentials

Private-Jet-fashionsMake sure that you include certain items if you are taking a long trip – you need to be prepared for any contingency. Here are five essentials for flying on a private jet.

Chloe Scalloped Suede Pumps

These velvet suede shoes are delicate enough to look incredible at a moment’s notice with virtually any outfit and durable enough to survive a hard airline trip. The timeless look of the shoe combines a leather lining with an almond toe and Mary Jane strap.

Alaia Vienne Laser Cut Leather Tote

Perhaps the best looking luxury everyday bag you will ever tote, this Italian smooth black leather is laser cut with a two tone tan interior. You have plenty of room in this tote for everything no matter where you land, but you stay as mobile as ever.

Anita Ko Evil Eye Gold, Diamond and Sapphire Ring

Look like a celebrity no matter where you fly with the Anita Ko Evil Eye ring. Created from 18 karat rose gold, 1.01 carats of diamonds and centered with a 0.65 carat sapphire, you will be in the company of Rihanna, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence, who all praise Anita Ko and feature the brand.

Balenciaga Asymmetric Woven Dress

If you need a look that you can slide on and accessorize in a few minutes, this Balenciaga is your perfect compromise. This asymmetric dress gives you style and body with plenty of room for your smaller accessory pieces. The back is cutaway with a flared handkerchief hem so that you can float off of your flight like a silhouette. This look is perfect to match with any of the other accessories on this list if you need a costume change before your flight lands.

Stella McCartney Cashmere and Wool Blend Sweater

You never know if your flight will get a bit nippy, and the Stella McCartney will make sure that you stay in style while you cover up. The piece is spun from a durable and weighty blend of cashmere and wool that is knit with a unique laddered pattern that keeps you cool while you stay warm. The sweater is oversize and finished with three decorative button and cowl neck collar.

Top 5 Must Have Swimsuits for this Season

Marysia-Swim-Broadway-Bikini-TopLooking for a swimsuit for the summer 2016 season, there is no better time than now to buy the must have swimsuit right before the July 4th long weekend. Some things to keep in mind when looking for a swimsuit should be – is it flattering, will you want to wear it for more than one occasion, and will it stand up to being worn while running around in the waves or is it a swimsuit just for sitting by the pool? All of these questions should be part of the buying process since swimsuits are just as much of an investment as a pair of shoes or a new jacket and you want something that will at least last you the whole swimsuit season.

For Love + Lemons x Revolve One Piece Swimsuit

For a great look with a textured finish, the St. Lucia one piece is a top choice. Featuring scrunchy ruffle trim along the legs and edges of the bust, the shape forming swimsuit shows off your best assets in a subtle way. The back cut out with hook closure gives you a stylish look from all angles, and the underwire cups lift in just the right places.

Lovers + Friends x Revolve x Alexis Ren Brayden One Piece Swimsuit

The spandex blend stretches across the body with open sides, giving you more space to move on the beach. The tie closures give you style and function without imposing on your comfort, and the piece serves as a strong base for wicked accessories if you are looking to show out this summer.

Marysia Swim Broadway Bikini Top

The halter top comes with strap ties around the back and neck with scalloped edges. The look is bold and forward, and you can match it with a scalloped bottom or another type of bikini bottom.

Ale by Alessandra Mother Earth Convertible Triangle Top

The bead and charm accents on the convertible top bring just the right amount of attention to the mesh overlay, with lightly padded cups providing just the right amount of support. The straps are stylish, with a halter top look around the neck and back.

Aila Blue Cathedral Bikini Top

Go with a more traditional, full black look with a center tie for just the right amount of style. Halter top straps give you the support that you need to look great on the beach without any of the adornments that other bikini tops usually need. The bottom of the bikini is reinforced to give you more durability just in case you feel like spending your time on the beach in the water and not on the sand.

While you are thinking about buying swimsuits, don’t forget to pick up some activewear so you can stay in shape this swimsuit season.

They can be dressed up or down, depending on how you plan to wear them.
  • Givenchy has taken the simple slide sandals to a whole new level. The signature magnolia and butterfly motif and silver hardware looks as good with cutoffs as it does with a classy long skirt. Whether you wear them at the beach or to a wedding, you’re sure to turn heads when you wear these leather sandals.
  • Every woman needs a pair of classic ballet flats. There is nothing more classic, and comfortable to wear for a night on the town. The patent-leather flats from Miu Miu have a crystal encrusted toe cap to make the design a bit more upscale and classy—without losing the comfortable, classic feel.

Giant Pizza Towel and Pizza Float for Summer Pool Parties

PizzaPizza has been on my mind lately // I spent 8 hours packing up our house yesterday for a remodel and ordered spinach skinny crust pizzas from Fresh Brothers. While it rained, I worked on packing up my whole house one room at a time while happily munching on pizza. It was a productive day. As I decluttered, packed and gave away things from every room of my house, I started thinking about summer break and things we might need for our summer beach days. Since it is snowing in Boston, New York, and Ohio at the moment and raining on the West Coast, it is a good time to stop and daydream about warmer weather and beach days.

My 2 must have items for summer are the Giant Pizza Pie towel that measures 5 feet x 5 feet and the Giant Pizza slice beach float. Nothing says summer like pizza pie parties. I love the Giant Pizza pie towel because it is round. Rather unusual for a beach towel and super fun. The float is a slice of pizza and looks great floating in the pool next to all the boring usual suspects.

Giant Pizza Pie towel is $26

Giant pizza slice is $35
