Hello from Public in NYC! I just wanted to quickly check in and share some useful beauty/skincare products I almost always bring with me to lighten my load when traveling. Either bottled efficiently, wonderfully dual-purposed, or just so good you don't need anything else, these items (and a lot of repeated outfits) have allowed me to maintain my makeup and skincare routine and manage a week-long trip with just a simple carry-on:


For you

Neon BlushChanel Rouge Coco lipshine, J.O.A. button-up, Adornmonde earrings

Swayed by my anxiety surrounding recent events, I've been desperately trying to meditate and write my thoughts in order to cope. I haven't had the energy or wanted to expend any energy in making frivolous fashion decisions. So as it turns out, at the very least, life seems to *feel* much easier (or the days seem easier to get by) being a serious repeat outfit offender-- no seconds spared to decide which tops go with which trousers, or what to layer under or over. For the sake of sanity, I am, however, learning to discover the mood-boosting abilities of a brightening lip color and the beauty of flora... however fleeting.


Home comforts

I've always been a bit of a homebody but as of late I've been truly relishing the comforts of home... especially when it comes to some R&R time. It could have something to do with aging or settling into a new place and filtering out skin/bath products that I just don't care for, though it is no secret that quality home goods and dreamy scents have a special way of not only relieving stress, but also elevating my surroundings in general. Below are some tools and products currently making me feel perfectly fine with nesting for days:


Summer sateen

Fleur du Mal top, Lavish Alice skirt, Elizabeth and James bag (similar), RAEN sunglasses, Adornmonde earrings, VANS sneakers

This hot weather has got me repeating this silk and satin set for days, like, really-- I wore this exact ensemble three days straight. It's perfectly slinky and draped in all the right places so there's room to breathe and more at ease. Elevated with some gold hoops and made casual with trusty sneakers, it's the ideal get-up for comfortably getting through humid summer days.


Peaches and cream

The combination of a ripened peach sitting on a cloud of fresh burrata is high up on my list of some of the best things to eat, like, EVER. Aside from longer days, peaches are the things I appreciate most about summers- they are delicious on their own, they make the most divine pies, and they also make savory salads that much more enjoyable (and a tad sweet). If you haven't tried this combination before and would like an easy, delicious and light lunch, here are the contents you'd need to just mix together:

1 - peach, sliced
1 ball - burrata, opened
2 handfuls - salad spring mix (romaine, arugula, radicchio, mizuna, spinach, parsley, dill, cilantro)
5-8 - heirloom tomatoes, halved
splash of balsamic vinegar
pinch of salt and lots of pepper

Bon appetit!
