Describe your style in 3 words.
Timeless and minimal with a bit of an edge (ok-9 words).
Favourite moment from Paris?
The weather was so beautiful this week, but it did rain on my last full day in Paris. So I think grabbing a delicious coffee + croissant and then walking along the Seine river in the rain on my way to see Monet's Water Lilies might end up being my favourite moment.
Your Bare travel edit?
Packed into a carry-on, I had to make sure that each piece I brought served more than one purpose!
The list of things I wore and why:
Marin Rib Top
So cozy and chic tucked into a pair of belted trousers, thrown over your shoulders or worn over a slim dress for day time.
Marin Rib Tights
Love these for the plane - like wearing (very elevated) pjs! Also great for running out to grab coffee in the morning, or sitting out on the terrace with a glass of red.
Felted Wrap Coat
Such a beautiful piece - cozy without being bulky, perfect for jeans, trousers, a little black dress or anything else in your suitcase. It looks and feels super luxe, instantly elevates any look.
An essential for travel, I love wrapping around me to stay warm on the plane, but was also the perfect topper for chilly evenings.
Why is sustainable fashion important to you, at-home and abroad?
How we do one thing is how we do all things. I aim to be intentional in the way that I travel, eat, communicate and just generally live my life. Style and getting dressed is an extension of that - so it's important to me that I support aligned brands. My wardrobe is built on well designed basics that take me day to night, from Central America to Europe. I don't have a big closet, but the select pieces I've invested in do their job very well.
