Q: What is your approach to styling these pieces?
A: I kept it simple. The Merlette pieces fit seamlessly with my wardrobe. I can usually be found in white men’s jeans and a white top. I love to use black accessories to make the look pop.

Q: How do you approach packing for a vacation?
A: Of course I think about my destination and how I want to feel while I’m there. I know I’ll need items that can work for easy and comfortable in the daytime to something chic at night, so a Merlette dress is really the perfect option for whatever the day has in store for you. I always pack a lot of white tops to take me from the beach, to lunch to dinner and beyond.
Q: What's your next travel destination and why are you excited to visit?
A: I’m going to Zihuatanejo in a couple weeks and cannot wait! I’ve never been before and really looking forward to an extremely chill time with some friends in the sun. There’s also apparently good surf for beginners like me!
Wearing the VLIELAND dress
Q: Where are the places you love to visit over and over?
A: My husband and I are obsessed with Rome. We make an excuse to go there anytime we can. It’s so charming and extra special to us since we got engaged there a few years ago.
Another amazing place we have been lucky to visit a few times is Cuixmala in Mexico. A totally one of a kind experience that will keep you coming back for more.
Wearing the PARADIS dress
Q: What drew you to these Merlette pieces for a getaway?
A: These pieces are chic, easy to pack and my favorite thing to wear on holiday is a dress. Throw it on and be done! A Merlette dress says all the right things… understated but with a point of view.
