Riviera Red

Positano, Italy
April 21, 2017


There are few things more classic than spending time in the Italian Riviera. Just the notion of it immediately conjures up images of Sophia Lauren and Grace Kelly donning something fabulous, walking the quaint streets and boating from beach club to beach club. Sometimes I wonder what’s more captivating about these vintage stills: the classic scenery or what they’re wearing that makes them so iconic. The truth is, it’s a combination of the two, It’s the essence of the lifestyle.

When packing for any getaway, no matter where I’m going, I am always thinking about my destination and how an outfit complements a setting.  No matter the destination, I always pack a look that feels elevated for a beautiful night out to dinner with my love. And in a quintessentially classic place like Positano, I knew this luxurious look from St. John, would be the perfect pairing.

What I adore most about this head-to-toe ensemble is its versatility. The beautiful laser cut lace coat can easily be paired with denim and a silky blouse for a more casual look on a different occasion. Similarly, the dress pairs beautifully with a gold sandal, sans the jacket.

But for this occasion, I chose to pair the two together. As we walked into the town of Positano on our last night for dinner, we walked by this adorable fruit stand. The sun was setting and it was the absolute perfect moment to capture this look set against the spectacular Italian Riviera.

So, tell me, where are you headed this summer?

You couldn’t have found a better place to shoot that outfit! I’m obsessed with the photos, they are so fashion editorial. They should be in Vogue!

You’re so sweet! Thanks love!


you are beautiful , love the red

Thanks so much! Glad you love!


Positively in love with the red – you really steal the show in these shots, especially with the gorgeous backlighting. I think these photos are some of my favourites that I’ve seen from you. And of course, looks like Positano is officially on the bucket list!

I was wondering if at some point you would be willing to divulge some advice when it comes to doing these sorts of shoots? e.g. how to make skin look luminous for photos, how you decide on where to shoot, how to put clothing/accessory pieces together, how you work around the weather, etc. Would be amazing to learn some pointers. 🙂

Absolutely! I can definitely add that to the list of potential content!
