1. The Sandals

“Typically there is a white party in Oak Bluffs every year, and these would be the perfect shoe to wear. You can never go wrong with a gold gladiator sandal.”

2. The Book

“I could never find beach reads centering the stories on women and women of color. So I started sketching out this book on a flight.”

3. The Hat

“This is an homage to my mother island…and quite frankly, I don’t love combing my hair in the summer. So I can wash it and put my hat on.”

“They’re funky and stylish. You put your hair back in a nice little pony, put these on, and it’s just perfection.”
