I spent half the month of February in Europe for work. It was a great, but there is something about sleeping in your own bed that never gets old. Here are a few things that I leaned on during my travels.
Packing Cubes: Never got the hype of them, until I actually used them. For a inexpensive find, they are well worth the $19 you can find on Amazon. I used to pack in Ziplock bags to keep everything somewhat organized. Packing cubes provide the option to organize larger items and pack down to remove air – win/win. Source.
Adidas Shoes: Trying to fit in with the Europeans as much as possible. They go with absolute everything and have a great sole (to allow you hours of walking around). Source.
Longchamp Le Pliage Tote: The best bag for traveling. It folds down and is easily pack-able. Once you arrive to your destination it is the perfect day bag size. Source.
Travel Converter: Simple, but having a converter that offers outlet and USB ports is game changing. It’s the little things that can make a difference, i.e. charging your phone while curling your hair. Source.
I just came home from a two week work trip in Europe where I packed in a carry-on. Yeah..I’m just as shocked- two weeks IN A CARRY-ON.
The trip spanned 5 countries – with varying temperatures from 40-65 degrees Fahrenheit. My luggage was made up of neutrals with a few prints/colors thrown in. When traveling, my goal is to always wear everything I packed. It can be difficult, but I think its a great goal to be more intentional in our daily wear and while traveling.
Here’s what I packed:
Tops. – Faux Suede Vest (Old: Anthropologie) // Similar – Black Bodycon Midi Dress – Forever 21 – Grey Whisper Cotton Turtleneck – Madewell – Black Parke Blazer in Wool Flannel – J Crew – Juliette Collarless Sweater – Blazer – J. Crew – Grey Muscle Tank Top – Madewell – Olive Ruffle- Neck Sweater (Old: J. Crew) // Similar – Black Long Sleeve Modal Blend Tee – Halogen – Nordstrom – Everyday Chambray Shirt – J.Crew – Black Long Sleeve Sweater (Old: T.J. Maxx) // Similar – Curvy Slim Stretch Perfect Shirt in Banker Blue Strip – J. Crew
2019 was a big year for me – reading-wise. I joined my first book club, got a library card and joined Goodreads. Soooo yeah, a big BIG year. In total I read 32 books – some were good, some great and some I’d rather not remember.
We’re just getting back from New Orleans and I’m full of inspiration for our Master Bathroom renovation. The city is filled with a mixture of vintage, modern and traditional and I love every second of it. I’ve pulled together my inspiration and a few achievable looks for our Master Bathroom. But first, you’ve gotta see the current state.
