The Pouchette in natural water snake: "A great item for times you just want to run out with your phone and wallet and keys."
The Mini Rider in black raffia: "It's big enough to fit everything I need - the perfect size for me. I love the fun pattern and the proportions and design detail of the Rider bag in a smaller, take anywhere shape."
The Starrett Platform Sandal in sand: "These Sandals are very unique. They give lift but are essentially a flat pitch so they are really comfortable. This is the wow piece of my Resort wardrobe - sure to make an impression."
The Georgie ballet flat in gold: "I like elastic ballet flats but too often they are bulbous and not flattering enough. The challenge was to design an elastic flat that had a more refined toe shape. They are super comfy and the perfect shoe for travel."
The Lolly Sandal in cheetah mix and Lock Clutch in natural mix: "I am a big fan of mixing color and print. There's something very emotional about it - it grabs you. My favorite examples are the Lolly sandal with the printed haircalf insole and our new colorblock Lock Clutch."
The Classic Matilde Boot: "In my rotation, I like to have a tall shaft boot that can make me look pulled together even when I'm not. The Matilde is that kind of staple boot that's great on the weekends, but also good for going out. The tall shaft means its warm when its chilly outside!"
Last but not least, The Rain Slip On in mini lynx print: "For rainy days, I have my LR printed rain booties. I love that they are slip on so that I can quickly get them on and off."
Jessie's travel essentials for Miami? "Ipad stocked with episodes of homeland, cat eye sunnies, red lipstick, a great straw hat and my running gear (seem to only make it out running when I am on vacation!)"
