One of Those Days



You know those special days where you have an extra pep in your new shoe step? The days where you think, I really got it right today. It’s amazing how much of an effect clothes can have on my confidence (ideal for a day of  back-to-back meetings). I’m having one of those days thanks to a few sale purchases from J.Crew (sweater and shoes) and an oldie, but goodie from Nordstrom (denim skirt). What’s better than a new pair of (striped, ankle tie wedge) shoes and (slinky peach) a sweater?

An antique ring from my grandmother is just enough bling for an otherwise preppy look.

I don’t normally post Instagram photos on here, but today started off on an exceptional note. For more outfits of the day and other snapshots, follow me here. Happy hump day! xx

Hawaii Packing

packing list

I am on a plane to the Big Island for a real, week-long vacation! I waited until the last moment possible to pack (I hate packing for a trip) and just finished this morning. I threw in my last few essentials, hurriedly zipped up my suitcase (while sitting on it to keep it closed) and ran out the door to catch our ride. Luckily, I had my trusty packing list, categorized by electronics, accessories, clothing, beauty and miscellaneous, to make sure I wouldn’t forget anything.

Sun hats and a simple crossbody bag for running around during the day.

Packing for a warm, beach-y locale means lots of bikinis. I’m excited to wear these printed ones.
