Photoshoot: TS Summer Essentials

[trip style = any]

Right before the stork delivered Baby Styler 8 months ago, I launched the Trip Styler Store. It was kind of like having two babies at once, except one got WAY more attentionmy wee wanderer, of course! 

The store, focusing on wearable lifestyle finds hand-sourced from coordinates as far as Morocco, Mexico and Bali, embodies the true spirit of trip styling: Getting deep with a destination, and doing so in style. 

So often I see the world's top fashion and home publicationsthink: Nylon Magazine, NET-A-PORTER, People StyleWatch, Canadian House & Homefeaturing similar goods to those curated for the store, which got me excited to showcase our limited-edition bounty in a lifestyle shoot. 

And, since I wear at least one find from the TS Store dailyI always buy one extra for myself to road-test ithere's a selection of our hot-weather haul, perfect for summer. 

Happy browsing!

Fashion Friday :: Surfer Style

Puka shell necklaces are back, y'all! Just kidding---thank goodness---but surfer style is alive and well and living on Oahu. Last month, I took my first trip to Hawaii, where I rediscovered my high school love for all things surf. Once you get past the Tommy Bahama shirts and the wear-it-30-different-ways sarongs of Waikiki, there's a whole island of beach style to embrace---lest you look like a Haole.

Fashion Friday :: Life's a Beach

[trip style = sun + beach]

{Fashion Friday posts are published on the last Friday of every month by fashion blogger Heather.}

My Instagram feed has been filled with images of first snow this week from friends across the country. I imagine after a few mornings scraping their windshields, the novelty has worn off and those friends are already online bookmarking tropical destinations, hoping to swap their parkas for pareos and their boots for bikinis.

Even on the rainy West Coast, I'm dreaming of trading my umbrella for a tiny drink umbrella, preferably in a coconut, at a swim up bar, surrounded by surfers who speak very little English. Before I get carried away with an Ally McBeal-style daydream, I must remind you that the perfect styles for your sunny getaway are on sale now. And it makes sense that if you buy the perfect sandals or swim trunks now, you'll just have to find somewhere to wear them soon...right?!
