A Maine COVIDcation

Although we had not spent a night outside of our home since February, or even eaten outside at a restaurant, we felt that the mental health benefits to our family would be worth the risks of the trip. Maine has consistently had one of the lowest rates of COVID-19 transmission and strict travel restrictions. We were not disappointed.

A Day Spent at Hudson Yards

I am going to lead with the conclusion here. To be clear, RLS loved Hudson Yards and we think you should all go yourselves if you are able.  The mall covers a wide range of price points, from H&M to Dior, but most importantly, there are some new discoveries you might not have had a chance to see, feel, and try on in person before.  This was the most fun part for me and Kyle.

On the contrary, I knew exactly how much we would be walking, how crowded the subway could get, and how overstimulated my DC-born-and-bred children would become. Alas, our preparation and planning was prudent and all went well. And as when we took the kids to Richmond, VA for the day, I wanted to share some of my tricks that worked. Be forewarned, there is no shopping in this …

Lani’s Travel Capsule Wardrobe Formula

Our readers who subscribe, and therefore get our weekly newsletter detailing our comings and goings, will know that I have been doing A LOT of traveling for clients lately. After using the same strategy for 4 trips in one month, I thought I should be nice and share my new travel capsule wardrobe formula. (Aside: To those of you who think the life of a personal stylist is glamorous, my 4 year-old is scotch taping me to my desk chair as I write this. Apparently he thought I needed help focusing on the task at hand.) But I digress…. So …
