The Places We Go

It’s pretty amazing how some places remain the same, year after year.  Each time you return, their sounds, smells and details immediately bring you back to previous days. Places like these hold sentimental value to you, with all of their comforts and even their quirks. 

We recently started thinking about the places we hold dear after our dear friend and creative partner Kathryn McCrary shared photos with us from the same small town in Florida that she’s been visiting for the past 20 years.  Boca Grande, on the island of Gasparilla off the west coast of Florida, has seen Kathryn and her family through many cherished memories over the years.

From Kathryn: “Everyone drives around the island in golf carts and as life slows down, you get to take in the beauty of the quiet beaches and old Banyon trees.  Boca Grande holds many dear memories for me from learning how to parallel park a golf cart before I got my permit, to celebrating my bachelorette party with my bridesmaids.  I love going back every year to find that nothing has changed except for me, and it allows me to reflect on the past, present, and future.”

Do you have places that you hold dear, places that have stayed the same throughout the years?  What makes them special to you?  Cheers, Kat

Black jumpsuit, Waiting on Martha Off the shoulder black jumpsuit Black jumpsuit Black jumpsuit from Rent The Runway Moon and Lola pearl bracelet Black jumpsuit outfit idea

Last year you may remember me praising the black jumpsuit, a look so timeless and chic and one that’ll never truly go out of style.  Whether you’re attending a wedding, dinner party or other social event, it’s a look that’s guaranteed to impress without all of the fuss.  This off-the-shoulder number is the perfect amount of sexy, yet covered, and I felt confident the second I slipped into it.  By keeping jewelry and accessories classic, I achieved the sleek and confident look I was going for.  Truly, MKR
