The blogger behind Atlantic-Pacific shows off her Robinson style.
I am currently based in NYC and run the blog Atlantic-Pacific. I have worked in the retail industry as a merchant for almost 10 years and have a passion to learn new things about the ever-changing fashion space. I can’t live without the world wide web, have a penchant for stripes, and could eat pizza everyday.
What’s in my Robinson…
Living in NYC I am constantly on the go. My Robinson bag holds everything I need from sun up to sun down. Any day of the week you will find my wallet, phone, keys, Stila Beso lipstick, Le Labo Rose 31, Smythson notebook, Muji pens and a whole mess of bobby pins in my bag!
I love these colors because…
The Robinson in poppy red is the perfect mix of sophistication and fun. I love a fun, eye-catching color in a more structured bag. Red has always been one of my favorite colors to wear — and poppy red can either complement a bright, optimistic look or be the perfect statement piece to a more neutral ensemble. And the pale apricot [in the second photo] — it’s the perfect spring neutral, a fresh alternative to black or tan but still a versatile color that goes with your whole closet.
When getting dressed, bag first vs outfit first…
I typically always start with accessories first when building my look. They create a starting point for me and usually when standing in front of my closet I am quite decisive about the bag or shoe I want to wear for the day and I go from there!
A typical day at work includes…
My days usually start with shooting whatever look I am wearing and then trying to squeeze in an AM coffee meeting before heading to the office. At the office every day looks different — which is why I love working in merchandising. It could be anything from reviewing color palettes for an upcoming season, reviewing the current business or building a long-term strategy for the future.
