Style: Back-to-School Looks

The summer is coming to an end, and for some (the lucky ones), this means back to school. Before packing up their desks, we asked two of our summer interns, Mollie and Margaret, to jump in front of the camera and show off some of their favorite back-to-school looks.

Travel: Escape to Sea Island, GA

August is here, but summer isn't over yet! There's still plenty of time to sneak in a fun escape. First stop on our list this month is Sea Island. We've polled the insiders, and here's what we're suggesting for your weekend (or maybe you should make it a full week) jaunt to Georgia...

1. Pack:  Grab your embellished garb and colorful accessories. The more vibrant the colors, the better

2. Eats: May we suggest...

- Carry out BBQ from Southern Soul (don't forget the fried green beans). This is our #1 pick for a group dinner after a long beach day

- Fried chicken at the Oak Room, which overlooks the golf course. Grab s'mores at the Lodge afterwards

- Dinner at  Bennie's Red Barn. Leave room for the "raccoon" for dessert

3. Explore: You won't want to miss a thing.

- Rent a kayak and head up the marsh to sneak a peek at the houses

- Take a day trip to Cumberland Island to see the wild horses and the Carnegie Estate (also, this is the spot where JFK Jr. was married!)

4. Things to do: There's more to do than just sit on the beach. 

- Go skeet shooting on the marsh

- Grab your friends and hit the tennis courts (& grab smoothies from the Spa afterwards)

- Play Cloister Bingo! (not just for the old folks)

- Head to Zigi's to dance the night away to 90s hits. Always a favorite.

Apartment Therapy Features Jocelyn's TriBeca Loft

Anyone looking for home decorating and organizing tips? We've got some inspiration right here for you. This past week, Apartment Therapy featured photos from inside Jocelyn's TriBeca loft and interviewed our CEO. Keep scrolling for more views and a few of our favorite quotes from the interview.

To shop some of the featured items, click here.

From the article: "Rather than replace or rebuild, a lot of the work involved in the renovation of this loft apartment involved peeling back a few layers to get to more of the bare bones and to reveal the simplicity of the space."

"Jocelyn loves the open feeling of the loft and the long line of windows facing the street. She likes the raw wood columns that only happen when you get to the upper floors of a typical Manhattan cast iron building. And she likes having a roof deck. She tried to strip away as much as possible to highlight and to facilitate these perks."

Jocelyn's Style: "Personal and a mix of antiques and modern. Most unique items (art, furniture etc) in the apartment are from travels, family or New York adventures. I think it’s all pretty reflective of a loft… eclectic, but clean and open."
