What’s in your S’well: iced water with lemon
“Moving to Brooklyn from Florida has majorly influenced my sense of style. I’ve always been attracted to kitschy prints and statement pieces but these days I tend to go for more classic staples, like a vintage Levi’s or a quality leather jacket.”
“Despite the brutal heat this summer, I still love wearing a jacket. In order to fuel my masochistic summer jacket insanity, it’s extra important for me to have ice-cold water with lemon on hand wherever I go.”
“I’ve been obsessed with S’well because their bottles are so sleek and every design is cool in its own way. The Palm Beach bottle is definitely pays homage to my Florida roots.”
“I’ve lived in the same house ever since I first moved to Brooklyn two years ago and I’m in love with it. It’s a small space so I tend to switch it up whenever I canLittle changes like white bedding, a few plants and a vintage rug can totally change up the vibe of the room. “
