Fashion Friday: What to Wear on the Plane

Having JUST returned from our amazing vacation last night, I thought I’d take the suggestion of an Instagram follower and share what I like to wear on the plane when traveling to and from warm to cold weather.  I never travel in sweats or workout clothes because I really do like feeling put together and alert when I travel (unless on an overnight flight, then bring on the leggings and big comfy sweaters!)  Getting properly dressed just makes you feel better! A close variation on this outfit got me from Boston to Jamaica and back without being absolutely freezing or sweaty as hell on either end or in the middle!

My Better Half on Entrepreneurship

a7f8890d2c852cdde6dbc1a452de20f1

Erin thought it might be fun for me to write a blog about entrepreneurship, seeing as I am now a full-fledged entrepreneur. It is kind of a broad topic of course…like being asked to write a blog about business. But since I am a new entrepreneur, I guess I can talk about how that feels.

A little background first. For the past two years I have been helping a company re-start, pivot, re-launch, etc. As I think Erin mentioned before, it is a shopping platform that we brand for non-profits so they can raise money or offer cash back shopping as a benefit for their members (there are other applications like loyalty programs for banks, but that is the easiest to understand). I am now the full time CEO. Only we don’t have the money to pay me just yet, so I have also started a loyalty consulting business and that is what is paying the bills. So two full time, start-up businesses that demand a lot of my time. Want to know what that feels like?

It feels like I need to raise my game. A lot.

Paper Fancy.

I have LONG held a true love for beautiful, intricate and detailed paper goods. In another life I would have gone into a career in it (and wedding planning). Every opportunity I can find to use some kind of amazing cards, invitations or stationery I do. And I still obsess over other people’s wedding invitations- it’s such a spectacular way to set the tone for your event. And my GOD, the options available now!  Oh to be a bride in the time of Pinterest (when I was planning my wedding I only had magazine clippings and had to walk to the meetings two miles through the snow barefoot….)  No, I’m not THAT old, but I didn’t have Pinterest or wedding blogs to alert me to all the incredible vendors out there!

So here are two paper goods designers that I found that I’m quite keen on and thought you may be as well!

The first is Sideshow Press out of South Carolina.  Some of these wedding suites seriously made me weak in the knees. The liners, the detail, the unique quality to each….just spectacular.  Oh, and they do letterpress, which if you can swing it, is totally the way to go.  Such a rich tactile and textural option.

Ralph Lauren’s Jamaica

So far Jamaica has been amazing, I’ll do a full post on Round Hill and our time here, but for today I just wanted to share a little more island style. Ralph Lauren owns a giant villa here at Round Hill and yesterday Andrew and I got in a kayak to try to go scope it out. I’d seen these images of his home in Architectural Digest before, but now seeing the actual location I had to post! No Ralph sighting yet, but I’ll keep you posted if anything changes!

Look at this pool!

Golden Globes Best and Worst

So, I’m in paradise…without a tv.  So I was not able to watch the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean I can’t review the fashion! :) A little best and worst dressed (and a lot in between) to kick off your morning:

For the first time in forever, I don’t think I was bowled over with a clear “best dressed” favorite! There were a bunch I “liked”, but nothing that totally rocked my world. Sienna Miller looks fabulous and unique- especially love the hair and makeup. And Naomi Watts looked amazing in this canary sheath with snake necklace. Although I feel like perhaps I’ve seen a version of this on her before? Hey if it works, don’t mess with it…
