there’s a new resort collection available by talented designer Stella Carakasi. and with so many of us booking trips to warmer climates in the next few months i thought it would be fun to head on down to the pier and try on my new duds. readers beware as the winds were up, and my hair with it! but i’m loving this classic trench coat with an asymmetrical twist. the cotton/metal fabric is water-resistant with on seam pockets. this coat matches perfectly with the under the radar ankle pants. i love the wider legs and shorter hem that give this pant a casual elegance that’s perfect for a laid-back look. i hope you noticed i’m carrying a super fun tote by North 37 Design that’s made entirely from sailboat sails. there’s a label sewn inside each handbag that shares the history of the sail used to make it. so, anyone ready for a cruise? wait, we still have a few holidays to celebrate.
