Traveling in Style

Beauties,

It's been a hot minute since we've talked, and I've missed you! And while I'm catching up on Project Runway, I'm inspired to talk fashion. I want to share a few travel tips with you guys, because I need to share what has consumed me the past two weeks: traveling/prepping for travel/recuperating from travel.

 Vacation highlights from my recent trip to San Diego with my sweet family (featuring my two favorite outfits of the trip, of course)!

So here's what got me through my first cross-country air travel with a 1-year-old:

  1. Lists: JT and I both had our own packing lists. JT's was compiled after much internet research to ensure I had everything I could possibly need for a baby away from home (phew! too bad nothing on my list could help him sleep better in our hotel room). My list was a breakdown of what I would wear each day (with one extra outfit just in case I changed my mind, of course).
  2. A few key wardrobe pieces: namely, my two newest burgundy pieces from WHBM. Before we left I picked up this gorgeous burgundy duster (which was wonderful during the chilly San Diego mornings and evenings), and a divine burgundy peasant dress. And BONUS: they are currently having their Friends and Family Sale (just use Code 60745 at checkout)!
  3. My greatest make-up staple: Tarte's Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer. I cannot travel without it. Not only does it help my make-up stay all day, but it gives me incredible shine control which is a MUST for my oily skin.
  4. Boots: The best walk-all-day-THEN-walk-to-dinner-and-drinks-after, shoe ware that there ever was. One of the reasons fall is my favorite season: boots are so classic and effortless, but can add the perfect touch to any outfit. I own a pair of classic black and brown riding boots that are so old I couldn't find them anywhere online if I tried, but here are some similar:

That's all for now loves! What would you like to see on the blog? I'd love to hear from you! XOXO
