My Happy Place

Cover Up: Missoni

I had the most amazing mother daughter trip this past weekend in St. Barth. I was able to trick my best friend in to thinking I couldn’t make the trip and then surprised her in the morning at the airport. It’s always great to have some mother daughter time along with my friends and their moms.

It’s safe to say my mom and I have the same taste from clothes to vacations. I can always count on her to have something I can borrow to make my outfit better. She is the queen of white beach clothes and the look I am wearing over my St. Barth bikini is all hers. Thanks mom! We spent our first and last days at Nikki Beach..which makes it even harder to leave when the party is just getting started there. Hope to see you again soon SB xoxo

This brand new hotel Le Barthélemy in St Barths is a dream. Their infinity pool looks out to the water of the same unreal color that you think only exists in movies. It just so happened that my bikini decided to match the hotels color scheme and I was definitely okay with that. If you are an avid Revolve shopper like I am, you may have noticed this was the hotel where they had their Revolve Around the World influencer gathering.

A Weekend in St. Barth

Thursday Night:

Bonito – If you’ve ever wanted an instagrammable drink that actually tastes delicious too Bonito is your place. Each drink has their own special presentation, my favorite being the Sex in the Bath that even comes with a little rubber ducky. And just like their drinks, their food is just as amazing. Bonito is great if you want really great food and it also has a great atmosphere. I usually hit this place up during the week because the other restaurants like Bagatelle and Le Ti are really fun on the weekends. If you want to continue your night after dinner, Skybar is right below and perfect for after dinner drinks.

Top – Cinq à Sept

Friday Day:

Le Select – This is a great bar in the town of Gustavia if you want to just grab a beer, preferably a Carib. It’s very low key with delicious French fries and burgers. If there is a soccer, or should I say football, game on I highly recommend watching it here.

Friday Night:

Le Ti – hidden away from the rest of the restaurants Le Ti is a must. Dancers provide you with burlesque entertainment throughout your meal and eventually the whole restaurant turns in to one big party.

Saturday Day:

Cheval Blanc – If you want a more relaxed but very pretty lunch be sure to check out Cheval Blanc. It is still lively with a DJ and truly picturesque.

Saturday Night:

Bagatelle –You’ve never seen bottle service until you’ve gone to Bagatelle. With Magnum bottles or if you feel like ordering 6 personal bottles, your bottle will get the grand entrance it deserves. Whether it’s Superman flying through the crowd with your bottle or having it being rode in on a motorcycle it’s sure to be a show. Be sure to order the truffle pizza before you quickly end up on the table dancing.

Sunday Day:

Nikki Beach – There’s no party like a Nikki Beach Sunday day party. They go above and beyond for the theme of the week with decorations everywhere. Start off with a sushi boat and some rosé and before you know it you’ll be table dancing with the saxophone player. Although it is still pretty fun on Friday’s and Saturday’s if you’re going all the way to St. Barth you won’t want to miss the Sunday party.

I just got home to snowy Chicago after one of my best vacations yet in St. Barths. I can’t wait to share all my outfits and restaurant recommendations with you. We stayed in a villa provided by Wimco in Grand-Cul-de-Sac with the beach just steps away.

This was the first time I ever wore a one-piece and I have to say I may be switching to them more often. This one especially is very comfortable and easy to wear around the villa. I normally don’t wear one-piece because I want to get tan but I wore this when there was a little but of overcast so I didn’t feel like I was losing out on a tanning opportunity.

Summer Season?

Well, I thought I was about to skip my first winter in Chicago but it seems like that all changed this past weekend. It was the most bipolar weather I have ever witnessed. There truly were all four seasons in one day; there was a snowstorm then sun with warm weather and back to snowing within the minutes. A little snow won’t stop me from believing summer is almost here though! I thought I would share with you some of my favorite bikinis for all of you out there starting to plan your summer vacations. I have a serious bikini problem and can’t wait for this weather to warm up so I can start buying some more!

While exploring NYC I came across this new little sandwich shop called BEC (Bacon Egg and Cheese). Not only were the ingredients everything I would have wanted for breakfast, the brioche bun is comes on has bacon bits on it!! Highly recommend this place for all the breakfast lovers out there.
