i was chatting with my friends at tkees yesterday and the conversation naturally led to travel. it got me inspired to pinpoint exactly the type of beachside feel i look for when choosing a destination. i like a relaxed vibe- no missoni coverups and wedges, more like a beachbum tkee (when not barefoot,) a slightly tipsy stance with a linen cover up falling off one shoulder, a damn good playlist… and a striped umbrella never hurts. there are a lot of cool little boutiquy places in and around tulum that are sparking my interest- along with blogstagrammers aplenty.

i had the visual delight of entering the tkees office a while back. they’re space is decorated in exactly the type of setting you’d like to kick off your cocobutter flip flops at the end of a long sunshine filled day- if the rays are barren the california, whited out, boho vibes may help you forget that. i immediately zeroed in on a rug and was informed it was purchased at roost home furnishings. this prompted my search- which showed few results (especially in the rug department.) what i did find was that the designers use natural and vintage materials to craft their goods, keeping most of them in their raw state, lots of wood, stones, jutes, neutrals-with the ambition to keep their environmental footprint small. It will be a must stop for me next time i’m in LA.

nicaragua bound




tomorrow i embark on a nicaraguan adventure with my friend jenn. i am a terrible flyer but love travelling too much to let my phobia get the best of me… today is all about keeping myself in check and packing super light with sand, sunshine, and ocean in mind. the town that we are spending most of our time in is san juan del sur, very surf and yoga centric- seems like just what my tensed up muscles are begging for after a long agonizing winter. packing is an easy task for me above are some of my staples by isabel marant, james perse, cp shades, club monaco beach shop, and obv tkees (the closest i can come to being barefoot.)
