“I have a clear vision of how I want my place to feel and don’t let anything pass through the front door, which doesn’t contribute to that.”

I’m over the moon to have one of Instagram’s most stylish ladies on SHB today! Amy Stone, global community manager for Gap & Gap Kids, loves the simpler finer things in life: lobster rolls, summer jaunts to Nantucket and a perfectly polished orange-red manicure. One thing that makes her a Savvy Tastemaker (aside from her impeccable taste) is her love for everything beach related: from 1960s Palm Beach glamour to the West Coast surf culture (we do love the ocean around here).

I had the pleasure to meet up with Amy a few months ago at Smith + Mills—the most quaint lunch spot in Tribeca, nestled in an old carriage house—proving me once again that Amy knows where it’s at. You can count on her discerning eye for spotting the best places to grab a an iced latte, pina colada or avocado toast (bonus points if it’s Instagram-worthy) and for adopting cutting-edge trends in the most classic and timeless way.

And THIS is why we’re excited to find out more about Amy, from her go-to local haunts to her favorite indulgences (hello Dyptique x Tomas Maier Palm Beach Candle).
