Vacation Outfits & Packing Tips

I leave for St. Martin early tomorrow morning & of course I left my packing to the last minute. But, I'm pretty good at not overpacking so here are some tips I keep in mind!

1. Use a packing cube. It helps to keep your clothes in place during
flight & its also a great way to separate clean & dirty clothes.

2. Prevent liquids from spilling by taking the lid off of the bottle, placing
plastic wrap over the opening of the lid & placing the lid back on the bottle.

3. Fingers crossed this doesn't happen, but I always have an extra set of
clothes in my carry-on bag just incase my checked luggage goes missing.

4. Pick your favorite clothing pieces & build outfits around those pieces.

5. Take pics of your outfits so you know exactly what goes with what!

3-Year Anniversary | July 9, 2015

Last Thursday was our 3-year anniversary so we went to the city to explore the Upper East Side. Our first stop was the Cooper Hewitt museum on 91st Street. My favorite exhibition was the one on architecture and design. We ended the night in Herald Square eating Insomnia Cookies and got on the train home just before the rain storm. John also made me this storybook of how we met. It's the most thoughtful gift I've ever received.

Vacation Wishlist

baseball hat | lace crop top | sunglasses | bandeau bikini | wedges | floppy hat

I leave for vacation to St. Martin in exactly one week. I can't wait to relax on the beach & catch a few rays. These are some items I am lusting over for vacation. St. Martin is known for it's airport runway just feet away from the beach so I ordered this baseball hat which is perfect for the windy weather. An off-the-shoulder white crop top would be great paired with some fun summer wedges. These chic sunglasses are a must. They've been seen on Shay Mitchell who always has the cutest accessories. For those pool days, this reversible bandeau bikini makes a statement with it's cutouts. And who could go wrong with a simple black floppy hat?
