Newport Clambake Club (Front)Shop Now
I grew up going to Newport, Rhode Island and having clambakes with my family and cousins. There’s nothing I love more than a clambake in New England during the summertime!
Play Golf for HealthShop Now
My boyfriend recently got me back into golf and I love it, because, you know, health! Definitely not because of the cocktails, cute outfits, hot dogs, and vibes!
The Plaza New YorkShop Now
Growing up, I *loved* Eloise. I remember the first time I did tea at the Plaza with my family, it was exceptional.
Boston Red Socks (Back)Shop Now
My dad is from Boston and raised us to root for the Red Sox! I still love visiting Boston and squeezing in a visit to Fenway if I can. Not to mention, I have like four Red Sox hats in my repertoire and will be a fan for life.
New York YankeesShop Now
Living in New York now, it’s fun to head up to Yankee Stadium for a game every season. This past year I went to a Red Sox vs Yankees game and while I cheered on the Sox, the Yankees put up a good fight and I have to admit I just love their color palette.
Coca Cola (Vintage)Shop Now
When you are craving a crispy, cold Coke, is there anything better?
I live down the street from Balthazar in NYC. It’s an institution! It’s such a cozy vibe for dinner in the chilly months, but also a great spot for an almond croissant to go year-round. I have to walk past their crowded sidewalk often to get where I’m going, so it’s a pretty unforgettable establishment in my daily life.
The Colony hotelShop Now
The first time I stayed at the Colony was for my golden birthday in 2018! I went back again this year and just love all of the pink and green. It's the cutest hotel ever!
MILWAUKEE BUCKS (FRONT)Shop Now
I grew up in Milwaukee, WI and I have so many fun memories from watching Bucks games with friends in college!
