Halloween at Home

 



























 Bekka Palmer Photography


Happy Halloween Everyone! Step inside my incredible Halloween Holiday spent at cozying up at home with my twin corgis, Lady Bird and Dutch. It was such a joy to wake up at home after a crazy travel and work week and have the day off to really enjoy my family, decorate the house with festive flowers, pumpkins, and gourds, make my Fall Cider Bishop (recipe to follow), and cuddle by the fireplace while watching some of my favorite 40s film noir films.

However you like to spend All Hallows Eve, I wish you a spooky, safe, and sweet Halloween!

A little snapshot today from Tuesday's lunch in Palm Beach! This orange shift is an absolute savior when it comes to travel and putting together a quick and chic outfit. The electric orange color means it needs very little in the accessories department- no more than a great heel or a sparking sandal, and some shades to complete the look! After a morning beach run and swim, I threw my sea salt sprayed hair up in a messy french twist (my go to hair style this month) and walked to town in the glorious sun to meet a friend for lunch. Ah, the joys of living in the tropics, even if for just 48hrs...

After a day filled with air travel, meetings, & appointments I was finally able to share in the glorious afternoon sunshine poolside, and hit the beach for a spectacular sunset walk in the waves. To wake up to the harsh drone of delivery trucks in Manhattan, and fall asleep that very same day to the soft sound of waves flushing against the beach is truly a rejuvenating and nerve cleansing experience. Although my current trip to Palm Beach is short and jam-packed with work, there is always time down here to take your shoes off and steal a moment in the sand. And my is that endlessly cathartic.

Sometimes us New Yorkers get way too wrapped up in ourselves, our schedules, our jobs, and our ambitions. So today, I wish that you'll find a second, a moment wherever you may be, when you can take a break, and dip your toe in the however proverbial ocean...

My Missoni Caftan, pictured above, is one of the most cherished items in my wardrobe. A gift from my husband while on an amazing trip we took to Hualalai on Hawaii's Big Island, this elegant beach cover up is a woman's wardrobe luxury, and an investment piece that I highly recommend springing for now or later, as it is a timeless classic you can have forever!

Just arrived in Palm Beach for a very quick (delightful nonetheless) trip, and had to head straight from the airport to a lunch meeting. This means that layering was absolutely essential since early morning NYC, a near 3 hr plane ride, and high noon Florida heat means 3 climate changes in one day! Scarves, sweaters, and blazers are tried and true travel fashion items that no woman should fly without. The blazer adds polish when thrown over any comfy t-shirt and jeans, and even hides an occasional wrinkled or stained blouse, because we all know both have happened to us all. A soft sweater is always necessary of course, even in the summer those AC vents can get cranking to arctic levels, and the scarf is indeed the ultimate travel accessory to cover your neck, act as a blanket, shall, errr mask or even folded as a thin pillow. Of course the scarf adds a bit of color, texture, or print to your jet-setting street style, and if you are suffering from a bad hair day you can always use it as a wide headband or hair accessory to hide the hair hazard.

I must say that I find a pair of flats, whether on your feet or tucked in your cary on just in case, are a must these days. In a lot of the big international airports I frequent I find that there is more and more walking involved to get to and from your gate, and after hours spent sitting, dehydrating, and getting stiff, speed walking in a pair of heels is the last thing your back and body needs. Simple ballerina flats or a bright colored slip-on sandal is the easiest way to go, if you're not already sporting a flat fall boot that is. I will be doing a few posts in the coming month on travel tips, tricks, beauty, and health just in time for holiday travel so stay tuned! But until then it's time to pull out anything orange this week, and get in the spirit of Halloween, my absolute favorite holiday.
