What to Pack? Summer Getaway Guide

mini island getaway

Since I am away on a 6 week vacation in my homeland I decided that a great guide for what to take on a Mini vacation that you might be taking this summer would be helpful. I am sure you are going some place exciting.. well that is what i hope. Of course it doesn't have to be some island in Hawaii or in the West Indies but anywhere you go around this time I hope is pretty hot so these pieces should not differ. Mini vacation i would say to me means around 5-7 days, however anything shorter you can pack the same amount that is if you are an over packer like me or just pack less! I didn't forget to pop in all the current trendy items. Mints, Pastels, Color-blocks & Whites are a must! Just don't forget to add a camera to your suitcase to show everyone how you paired stuff together. Remember that you can ALWAYS mix and match pieces if you run out of outfits. And of course we will love to see the amazing spot your chose for your vacation so remember to snap shots of that too. Most importantly on a vacay you want to feel airy and comfortable. Leave the 6 inch heels and dash in some comfy platform wedges for your feet and add some converses if you may or whatever flat sneaker you choose. Cute sandals and some flip flops how could you forget? Grab a cute sunhat for the sun and some sunglasses for the eyes. A neon belt can be worn with anything for POP so add that too. Don't you forget a cute swim suit or 2 and remember some airy PJ's as well. Accessories is all on you. You can pack two necklaces you love and your normal watch Throw in your favorite nail polish and towel and head on out to enjoy your amazing Vacation!
Of course I didn't mention everything that you should take.. Before i get to that
since you will be traveling for a quick week it is more manageable to take a small carry on suitcase on this trip.. You know the pullon's that you can put in the compartment at the top of your seat on the airplane? Right! Instead of having a huge suitcase that you most likely will have to pay for to put at the bottom of the plane, this is a great way to save money for your actual trip instead :)
But remember necessities that you may need for your trip will have to be under 8oz to travel on board. So a great idea will be to take a trip to Target in their travel section and rack up on ...

Body Spray
Body wash
Body lotion
Hand Sanitizer
Its easy because they are all under 8oz. Remember you can also make use of their small containers that you can place whatever else you may need in them..oil's & face scrubs. If you may you can also visit Bath and Body Works for the sprays, lotion's and wash's that are under 8oz as well if you love a certain scent.

I hope you are inspired and this helps.

Multiple ways: Take 1

Unfaithful I am not? A bit busy I am and just a little bit caught up with so much that my blog posts are being left for "i'll save it for later", but it's time to stop and come back to posting now and not in a few hours or two days from now.. So here I am!
4 ways 1

Denim button downs also known as Chambray shirts for as long as I can remember.. OK Well for around 2-3 years now has grown to be a staple item in any fashionistas closet. Why? Because you can wear it so many ways with with whatever you like and however you please. Dressed up or down any chambray button down can be easily transformed from day to night. Chunky jewelry, Floral print bottoms, a swim suit cover up, a dress worn inside you name it can be worn with a chambray button down or in the place of something for a fresh new cool and chic look. Honestly I won't lie I own one and I wear it at least 3 times a month. For a girl that never recycles outfits really that's a lot! I am not even near tired of it, this is how much I love it!Brunching after Sunday service, working hard on a casual day at the office or for the upcoming 4th of July BBQ are some places where you can wear your chambray. Remember never limit yourself you are free to wear it how you like! Hope you are inspired.

Try a Trend: Wear White

mixed whites with color

Why be boring with white when you can add a pop of color? Now that neon's and pastels are staple colors for the spring and summer why not try it with ever so crisp and clean white pieces in your closet? Inspired again by Who What Wear with Ashley Olsen and Jessica Alba rocking out all white outfits I figured why not add this new and upcoming trend to trends that people are already rocking? Not only can you just add a pop of neon to a white blazer and shorts but you can throw in pastel accessories so there can be a mix of pastels and neon's. Don't you even worry about not having an all white suit that matches because remember you are free to mix whatever white pieces you have. Have fun with it remember there is no limit in fashion. Do what stands out, something that would make you feel great and unlike the norm. Make a statement you are sure to be remembered!
Hope you all are inspired!

Do you really stop wearing white after Labor Day?
Would you rock the all white trend with some pop?
