Travel Tuesday: the Essentials

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a good Monday! Later on in the summer I am taking a trip to Europe. I have been out of the country before, but I seem to always forget the Essentials. Or even those things you wish you had. Let’s remember, I like to keep it cute & classy while traveling ;)

So on Tuesdays, I thought I would share great products that I have found to take on my trip. I’m ALL about deals, so rest assured I’ve looked for the best deal for your money.

Girly Girl

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in 2014, it’s that I’m a total girly girl! I love anything that is glittery and gold AND pink. I have decided I want to assess my accessories closet/stash and figure out what I like and I want to keep vs. what I want to get rid of. Let’s be honest, I got caught up in the amount of clutches I have. Hence this post…

I totally love clutches in my closet that go with my fun, new chloe + isabel jewels. Honestly, in looking through my closet every single thing was girly & I’m totally happy with that :)

So where are my girly girls at?

Spring Pastels

Hi y’all! I hope you’re having a good week so far! Today was seriously one of the BEST days of my life. If you follow me on Instagram, you will see that I met COURTNEY KERR. You will be hearing ALL about that very soon, but for now…I wanted to show you my outfit from tonight that included some pretty spring pastels.

PS I’m the WORST blogger ever who looks like I only wear jeans and take pictures in front of hotel mirrors, but really I don’t. Sometimes I just forget! I’m new to this outfit picture thing ;) No photographer here!
