Fashion diary: Solange Knowles

Welcome to the islands! I adore these photos of Solange Knowles spotted wearing my Kushcush Lovey one-piece in Ikat while on holiday in Jamaica. She looks modern and hip while epitomizing vibrant island style. British Vogue captured the look for Day 24 of her style diary. Loveeeee it.

The candid shots Instagram style (photos Solange Knowles via Twitter):



The Lovey romper one-piece (with a built in support bra!) has a vintage vibe and can easily go from day to night. Available in bold ikat print as seen on Solange at Saks.com ($167). Or go understated chic in solid navy, available at Anthropologie.com ($158).

How cute is she! The vibrant Ikat print with tones of fuschia, orange and purple is perfectly at home on a tropical getaway or an inspiration that spring is soon to come! For a little less is more, try the Bali string bikini in the same bold print, available at Kushcush.com ($145).

Bellissima Italy

There is something magical about Italy. Picture-perfect vistas, charming towns, an air of romance and of course‚Ķthe food. For our 10th wedding anniversary my husband & I spent two weeks discovering ‚ÄúIl dolce far niente‚ÄĚ (the sweetness of doing nothing) in beautiful, inspirational & bellissima Italy.

On the beach in Montersosso al mare, Cinque Terre. Vivid colors, the beautiful sea….this photo is definitely going on my inspiration board. Perfection.

Stepping back in time…quaint and quiet Varenna on Lake Como.

Our  hotel in Bellagio… so much history, Im still convinced it was haunted! Or maybe it was the huge thunderstorms and lightening crackling over the lake & alps. Either way = spooky!
