At the last minute, Brandon and I decided to seize the day and book a vacation to an all-inclusive resort in Dominican Republic. No hassle, no stress, just endless buffets, beers and beaches – just what the doctor ordered. The Dominican lifestyle is carefree and slow-paced so I made sure to bring along garments that matched these island vibes.
This maxi from Abercrombie and Fitch was a great find. Not only is is super lightweight, but it packs well and looks put-together for those nights when we wanted to class it up and dine at the ocean front restaurant.
Stay tuned for more looks from the trip coming soon!
Let me introduce you to my new favourite Toronto conscious clothing company – The Saltwater Collective. Driven by their vision for cleaner oceans, The Saltwater Collective uses eco-friendly fashion to help consumers realize their impact on the environment. To help reverse the damage, a portion of every sale is donated to Oceana to support their ocean conservation efforts.
This company popped up in my Insta feed after searching for some last minute additions to my Dominican Republic vacation wardrobe. I placed my order with no hesitation. Knowing that the garments were designed and manufactured locally with ethically sourced materials, it was a guilt free purchase.
Join the Collective and protect paradise in style.
Well, here it is… my 2-day compilation of the most instagrammable destinations in New York. No, this list is not exhaustive, but it does include a wide variety of classic tourist attractions and little-know local hotspots.
#1. Central Park. From horse & carriage rides to ice skating, this oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle is full of kodak moments ready to happen.
#2. Hope Sculpture (222 W 53rd St). Because the Love Sculpture has been overdone.
#3. Times Square. This is the epitome of the city of lights. If you don’t share a photo of Times Square, were you even in New York?
#4. Dylan’s Candy Bar (33 Union Square W). Ralph Lauren’s daughter successfully merged the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy. If not for the gram, go for the sweets. I highly recommend her Cookie Dough candy bar.
#5. The Apartment by The Line (76 Greene St). Styled to perfection, everything in this space is for sale. Designed to give shoppers an intimate retail experience, The Apartment is ready to be photographed.
#6.Waldo Wall (corner of Mott & Kenmare). Help your feed stand out with a photo in front of the Where’s Waldo mural.
#7. The Butcher’s Daughter (19 Kenmare St). For endless brunch pictures.
#8. Brooklyn Bridge. The best place to see the New York City skyline, and take a selfie.
Be sure to keep this guide in mind to keep your feeds fresh next time you visit the Big Apple.
