Pavonine hi/lo skirt, Forever 21 sweater, vintage leather belt, J crew bracelet, David Yurman sunglasses, Malibu Native bathing suit

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 
I'm here in Florida and I couldn't be happier to have even the smallest amount of a break from the dreariness that has been NYC lately. We've been beaching it up these past two days because believe it or not, I didn't really swim in an ocean this year at all. Practically blasphemy in my book!

I'm obsessed with this Pavonine skirt. It comes out of the Fall 2011 collection, which was inspired by the facets and  dimensions of minerals. Pretty nifty, eh? I'm a fan of how designer Jessica Solomon took a different route to incorporate the contrasts of the natural world in order to create a really cool High/Low collection, which you can peek here. I took to that high/low aesthetic and styled it simply, with a belted oatmeal sweater to bring it back down to earth and minimal jewelry. I sported my David Yurman chevron sunglasses to add a bit more luxe, which these definitely pack!

Malibu Native was kind enough to make me beach-ready this summer, but I was never able to have beach/pool access until now. Such a bummer when you have such an adorable birthday suit. I couldn't help but have a Bob Fosse moment when taking these photos! It's riddled with charming quotes and illustrations by designer Louise Petit which enough to make anyone wanna kick around sand & dance, or it could just be me and my utter joy when it comes to being beachside...

Either way, I wish all of you cool cats the happiest & safest of Thanksgivings. Travel well and stay awesome! I know I'm thankful for all of you :]
