Everyone who saw the renovated 19th-century farmhouse of Luis Laplace and his partner Christophe Comoy on the island of Menorca in the WSJ. Magazine this weekend immediately fell in love. It’s probably because we haven’t been able to travel to abroad in over a year but it’s also because it doesn’t look overdone or too […]

One of the biggest questions after when will this end is when can we travel again. I don’t think we’ll be able to travel Europe again until late fall or possibly even next year but when we can, you may want to put Venice at the top of your must visit list. There you can […]
Does it feel like everyone you follow on Instagram has been to Positano, Capri, and/or Greece this summer? Now that it’s the end of August, all of Europe is en vacances since they all take their holiday at the same time. This post is an ode to these vacations. Enjoy!

I’m still trying to enjoy summer but the humidity is definitely making it hard. Here’s another color compilation to celebrate these last few weeks. via @haleboyd Sky Blue Swimsuit Amanda printed silk-georgette midi dress – I’d have my tailor cut off the ties on the sleeves via @craigamarkham via @notetosarah via @willelc via @thefacinator L’Officiel […]
The only way to get through winter in New York is to escape to a tropical destination as many times as possible. I’m very lucky to be headed to Mexico tomorrow with Thirdhome and can’t wait for sunshine and warm temperatures. I have resort packing down to a science now but I could use a few […]
I’m not traveling until the fall so it’s hard not to have a little fomo while scrolling through Instagram. It looks like everyone is en vacance somewhere chic like the Amalfi Coast or French Riviera. Here are a few of my favorite images from the last few weeks. @decorno in Italy @hotelducapedenroc in Antibes @aliceinherpalace in Sardinia […]
Sometimes I have to stop looking at Instagram since it looks like everyone is en vacances in Europe right now. The two hot spots I’ve noticed from my feed are Corsica and the Amalfi Coast and Russian fashionista Mira Duma has hit both this week. Not only am I loving her picture post card perfect […]
Do you ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? I don’t exactly feel like that on my last day in Paris but I do feel like I could use a really relaxing warm weather trip. If I had thought of that earlier, I could have added Biarritz to my itinerary. The seaside […]
I ordered a few books online and stopped by The Corner Bookstore today to make sure I have enough to read while I’m away for the long holiday weekend. I picked up The Vacationers which already has me hooked but I also purchased Gone Girl so I can read it before the film version is released. After being […]
The wifi situation has been more spotty than anticipated in the Dominican Republic so I apologize for a lack of posts. But I have to admit that it’s been nice to be on a real holiday and doing no work other than making everyone back in cold New York jealous via Instagram. Except for a […]
One of the things I will never become jaded or complacent about is traveling. At its worst, it’s expensive and exhausting but at its best, it’s inspiring and invigorating. It opens you up new places, new experiences, new friends, and in the best of circumstance, new romances. Things have been a bit stressful lately and […]
I’m on holiday out East this week but I wouldn’t mind spending next August in Marbella, Spain where this beautiful home is located. It was featured in Nuevo Estilo in Spanish so I can’t tell you anything about it but the photos are inspiring without any commentary. Enjoy!
This sign just went up in the window of a chic little frame shop down the street from me. Don’t you wish you could hang up a sign like this and take off on vacation for two weeks?! I’m not actually on vacation but I wish I was of course. What I am doing is […]
I’m currently trying to figure out how I can spend the whole of August traveling around Provence starting with Domaine de la Baume. The property in Tourtour which opens July 5th used to be the home of expressionist painter Bernard Buffet in the 1950’s. It looks like an absolute oasis to this overworked city girl. A […]
This is my last Jacques Grange post. I swear. But I couldn’t post about his guest houses in Portugal without sharing the one that he actually uses while on holiday. This one is definitely my favorite and the day bed is going in my beach house folder immediately. It’s perfection.
If yesterday’s guest house on Jacques Grange’s property wasn’t your style, maybe this one will be more to your liking. I love all the fabulous striped cotton rugs and textiles. But I probably wouldn’t even see them because I’d be sitting outside on one of the chic rattan chairs all day. A girl can dream.
“Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.” – William James August is when most Europeans take a month long holiday. I envy them and vow each year to do the same. It hasn’t quite happened yet […]
