More sun drenched days spent shuttling between the elegant Windsurf, and tantalizing tropical islands.
I had great fun planning my ensembles, but sadly this time around we had our hands full during the day, so we weren’t able to capture my day outfits which were generally shorts and fab shirts – but upon our return to Windsurf, I’d throw on my very best for cocktails and dinner.
Our voyage mostly focused on the French Antilles, and the lovely St Lucia and Guadeloupe were our next ports of call.
On Guadeloupe’s Pigeon Island, we were treated to a seaside barbecue luncheon and spent a day luxuriating beach side. We wandered a park with ruins of an old British fort. Parts of of the ruin were restored to give one the sense of its original Caribbean Neo Classical style grandeur. It probably goes without saying that I’d move there in a heartbeat.
Les Saintes, Guadaloupe was next on our itinerary. When approached by sea, it’s very much like coming to a pre-jet-set St Barthelemy of sorts – a stunningly lush island with fabulous French cuisine, beautiful beaches, and a charming town. Les Saintes is a destination to consider, especially with prices being a fraction of a stay in St Barthelemy.
Being an interior designer, I’m always taking notes, and there is no shortage of inspiration to be had on a voyage like this! I’ll certainly be utilizing much of what I’ve gathered for future projects.
Back on board Windstar’s Windsurf and dressed for our cocktail hour (top), I’m sporting a red cotton Tom Ford jacket, blue pinpoint oxford shirt with contrast white collar and cuffs, royal blue cotton pants, Seaman Schepps pearl and pale blue sapphire cuff links, vintage Rolex, vintage blue, white and red silk pocket square, Tom Ford era Gucci sunglasses, and my fragrance is Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.
