Sundays are for lounging in easy breezy maxi dresses. Free-flowing fabrics in shades of white are perfect for spring/summer. Tan leather details and a textured boat hat round out the look, keeping it simple and island chic.
Transition is definitely in the air. The tulips and pink cherry blossoms are slowly opening their eyes after a long winter’s nap, hinting that spring is finally amongst us. I can feel the anticipation and excitement building up to shed our heavy winter coats and bring out the fresh floral and lacy white looks we all adore.
Atlanta holds a special place in my heart as I spent my school summers and college years here. I have fond memories of hiking up Stone Mountain and watching the laser light shows, spending weekends at Lenox mall, going to the music and art festivals in Piedmont Park, and eating my way through delicious ethnic restaurants on Buford Highway. (If you’re in Atl, you have to try the roti canai at Penang and the black beans and rice at Havana!)
In my heart, I am truly an island girl, and I permanently crave turquoise seas and palm trees. Maybe everyone does though? I wish I was home more often. I’m happiest when I am soaking up the serenity and natural beauty that defined my childhood. Oh, the warm sunshine and Caribbean blue skies…absolute heaven.
St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
There’s no place like home. I’ve been around the world and the one place that continues to capture my heart again and again is the tiny, emerald island of St. Croix. Home Sweet Home. We’re only a mere 28×7 miles, but we’re a charismatic, vibrant, and proud people. We’ve been nicknamed “Twin City” for our two quaint and charming towns: Christiansted and Frederiksted, both with colorful architecture reminiscent of our diverse cultural history.
