I have never been a huge watch person, but you guys, this watch has changed my mind! I love wearing this unique watch; it’s light so it doesn’t feel like you are wearing some heavy, clunky watch.

BUT, I also love to dress up and be girly, and this watch looks equally great dressed up as you can see above. I paired it with this amazing backless dress, a blanket scarf, and boots. This cool watch adds such a pretty and natural ‘extra something’ to all my outfits. I got my watch in this gorgeous zebrawood and champagne color, but they come in a ton of different wood colors and faces to match your style.

Top Mossimo Drapey Tee | Jeans Express White Jean Legging | Scarf Lilly Pulitzer Infinity Scarf, gift, very similar Here and Here | Heels Steve Madden ‘Intrude’ Pumps | Clutch Francesca’s Luxor Perforated Clutch {on sale!} | Earrings Kendra Scott Drop Earrings

This is one of my favorite looks for summer. All white with a little pop of color! I went with teal but you can switch it up with pink, neon yellow, or any bright color. I wore this out a couple weekends ago to grab drinks with the hubby on Sunday. This loose fitting pocket tee is an absolute must for summer. It comes in 5 different colors, and I wear it ALL the time. Such a great basic, fits really well, and it’s only $11 right now. Uhm yes please. I paired it with teal heels and my Lilly Pulitzer scarf. I got this as a gift, but it matched my shoes perfectly! This scarf is really light so it works for summer. You can even wear white shorts and some lace up sandals to make it even more casual. I know you probably see this clutch all the time too, but it’s my go-to and it really just goes with everything. Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start…make sure to check back on the blog this week-we will be sharing more of our Nordstrom Sale finds!

Happy Tuesday!

Swinging into Fall

This weather in Atlanta has been so weird lately. Mother Nature hasn’t really made up her mind yet on what season it’s supposed to be; it’s been rainy for the past 12 days {which feels like forever} but it has been pretty warm outside up until yesterday. Let me just tell you, it’s been quite the challenge to get pictures lately with all the rain and gloomy weather. It finally started to feel like fall yesterday except it was still rainy and overcast. I need a little bit of sun, stat! With the warmer than normal weather we were having, I was able to wear my favorite black swing dress with some booties this weekend. This type of dress not only looks good on just about everyone, its ultra comfortable and you can pair it with just about anything. This swing dress should be a closet staple if it’s not already! I paired mine with some cognac wedge booties, skinny belt, and a leopard print infinity scarf. I wore this to Church yesterday when it was still warmer, and by the time I walked out it was windy and cold. Sigh. Either way, this is one of my favorite easy weekend looks for the changing weather. You could even pair it with tights into slightly colder weather too. My booties are from last season, but I linked a similar pair below that are on sale. There are tons of sweaters and boots on sale right now at Nordstrom, so make sure to stock up if you haven’t already on fall and winter staples!

Top Travel Essentials

I am getting ready for a trip to Italy pretty soon. In fact, I leave next week! I have been waiting for this trip for it seems like forever {ok, maybe just 8 months}, but I can’t believe its right around the corner. We will be spending a few days in Cinque Terre on the coast, then going to a Villa near Sierra for a week, then ending the trip with a quick two days in Rome. I can’t wait to share more of my trip with you soon, but today I wanted to share my top travel necessities in case any of you are planning a trip this fall or over the holidays. Traveling {and flying especially} can dry your skin and hair out, and misplacing things are easy to do if you aren’t organized. Below are my top faves for staying prepared, organized, hydrated, and looking great while you travel!

travelitems

  1. Noise Cancelling Earphones | Whether it’s the constant dull hum of the plane noise or the kid three rows back screaming, all the ambient noise on planes can really mess with you. Keep your calm and block out all the noise with these noise-cancelling earphones. Lightweight and portable, they block out up to 90 % of background noise.
  2. Passport Cover | This genuine leather cover keeps your passport from getting bent or messed up. Plus its cute and comes in several different colors!
  3. Evian Face Mist | This water mist is perfect for re-hydrating skin after traveling. It cleanses and hydrates your face, which can get seriously dry from flying. It even helps keep makeup in place, doing double duty as a setting spray.
  4. Silk Scarf | I know what you are thinking…why a scarf? This is probably the most mutli-functional item you can have in your bag. Not only can it be used as just a regular scarf, but also works as a hair wrap, a shawl, or a beach cover up!
  5. Travel Jewelry Organizer | One thing I used to dread when traveling was opening up my bag and having to spend 10 minutes untangling all my jewelry. Not a problem anymore. This jewelry organizer has plenty of spots for your rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Everything is kept organized and safe!
  6. Micellar Facial Wipes | Feeling a little gross after flying? These wipes remove makeup, grime, and oil in a pinch without drying your face.
  7. Tieks Foldable Flats | As much as I love heels, sometimes flats are necessary! It’s good to be prepared, and these flats fold up so that you can throw them in the smallest of purses. They are ultra comfy and you can basically take them anywhere.
  8. Portable Charger | Ever been down to 10% on your phone or laptop charger and somewhere to charge is no where to be found. It’s the worst feeling. With this little portable charger, you don’t ever have to worry about being disconnected ever again. This will give you a full charge on any device in a couple hours. Score!

Do you have any flying must-haves or items you can’t live without while traveling? Share with us in the comments below, we would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!
