    The Skort

    Beach vacation outfits don’t always have to be tank tops and shorts. If you are trying to cover your skin from the sun, a light colored, lightweight top, like this one worn by my sister, is perfect. It gives you that beach look, but keeps your skin safe. One of my favorite finds this summer was this skort. It makes the outfit feminine and more sophisticated in front and a comfortable and more functional back. Pairing these two pieces together gives you a mature look but still allows you to have fun on vacation! Shop the look!

    Tropical Cover Up

    Sometimes my packing is on point, sometimes I get to my destination and realized I packed all wrong. When this happens, I got to work with what I have and hope for the best. This trip I realized the first morning that I didn’t pack enough cover ups. I knew it was going to be hot but forgot about the tropical humidity that comes along with island destinations. When it is hot and humid, I like to wear loose shirts and cover ups to catch the breeze and project my skin from the sun. Having a loose cover up also helps to make an outfit look more put together without…

    Findlay Market

    Last weekend I spent my Saturday in Cincinnati visiting Andrea, one of my college roommates. I’ve been in and out of Cincinnati a couple times but had never really had the chance to explore the different neighborhoods. We started the morning in Hyde Park at Coffee Emporium. They had a nice warm fire burning on their patio that we enjoyed with our delicious mocha mudslides and zucchini bread. With only a couple hours to explore we headed to Over the Rhine, also known as OTR to go to the Findlay Market. The market is about four blocks of local vendors of all sorts. We stumbled upon Ida Candles stand where…

    Shop like Locals

    One of my favorite parts about my recent trip to Spain was my personalized private fashion tour through My Favourite Things. What I love about traveling is observing and absorbing different cultures. Whether that means sitting at a plaza restaurant and watching the city go by, or connecting with a local about where their favorite spots are. Don’t get me wrong, I still go to see tourist attractions, but you don’t fully experience a city if you are surrounded by tourist all day. And that is one of the reasons I loved the idea of this fashion tour. I emailed the company a month or two before our trip and from there…

    Go Glam Go Carry On

    Recently I took a “holiday” (as they say in Europe) to Amsterdam and Barcelona and challenged myself to just take a carry on size bag. Now this sounds almost impossible for traveling to 2 different climates in 10 days and trying to get some blog post in while doing it, but I’m here to say that it can be done! It can be done without outfit repeating and you can even have 2 outfits a day. I’ve traveled to Europe before and took a huge suitcase and I learned my lesson. Getting on and off trains and buses with a 50 lbs suitcase was stressful. Also, many places don’t have…
