As you descend the stairs from the plane on the Hamilton Island runway, you instantly feel like you’ve landed in paradise. Nothing beats leaving air plane air conditioning and having warm, salty ocean air wash over you. The small airport is open to the outdoors and baggage claim has views of the ocean.
We spent our last week in Australia on Hamilton Island and it was amazing. The island which is part of the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland is truly a paradise with beautiful scenery at every turn, and although Scott and I weren’t alive at the time we imagine it to be somewhat like Waikiki Beach in the 1950’s. There’s plenty to do on the island, yet somehow it seems untouched and undeveloped which is a rarity and so very peaceful. There are no cars on the island aside from those of the maintenance and service crews, so you get around by “buggie” or as we Americans know them – golf carts.
We still have 11 months to revel in Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year – Greenery. And although January is coming to an end it’s a New Year, perhaps a new you (depending on the status of your resolutions), and why not stock your wardrobe with new items!? Whatever shade strikes your fancy, green brings a fresh feel to fashion and is here to stay for our next trip around the sun. So stock up on greens for all seasons. See my selections for the pieces that’ll make them green with envy year round!
Fourth of July is just two weeks away!!! The Fourth is my favorite holiday, not only because it’s my birthday but also because I love everything the day entails. Freedom to do whatever it is you want to do… and what I want to do is lounge at the pool, BBQ with friends and watch the fireworks while laying on a blanket in the grass. Red, white and blue is a classic combination that can be worn all season long and in preparation for my favorite day of the year, I wanted to share my Independence Day Wish List! See my selections for everything you need to show your patriotism this Fourth of July.
We spent our last days in Italy on the island of Capri and it was truly amazing. Capri is a short ferry ride away from Positano and very easy to visit, even if just for a day trip. The island is truly a paradise with beautiful scenery at every turn, enticing boutiques and plenty of tasty ristorantes.
This palm print romper is my favorite purchase of the summer.
As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, Scott and I traveled to Pittsburgh, PA for a wedding last weekend. We arrived just in time to hit up a rooftop beer garden
