Hi there! 

Here I am in Positano on Italy's Amalfi Coast recently, wearing 12th Tribe's Midnight Rose Wrap Crop and wrap skirt set. I felt like the flamenco dancer I am in this look, and I recently wore it again for opening night of my West Side Story contract at the Ivoryton Playhouse which is running now through July 30th on the Connecticut Shoreline!

This look is so fun and flirty for summer. I accessorized with  Jack Rogers gold wedge sandals and my Balenciaga Mini City purse as well as gold shell earrings from a small Brazilian boutique in Recife. 

Positano was absolutely beautiful I could barely stand it. What a dream vacation destination! Francisco and I stayed with my Godmother and her husband in his family home that has been in his family for generations. Positano has a rich history and is blooming now, the beaches and shops and restaurants are all amazing! Here I am below wearing the same look in Savannah, GA on a recent trip.
