Hello June!  This Thursday I am headed to San Fransisco!  I am so excited to get away with two of my oldest and dearest friend for a fun extended girls weekend.  {I am obviously also a wee bit sad to be away from Maddie for more  than one night for the first time.}  When it comes to my travel style, comfort is at the top of my list.  Easy jersey dresses like this cute anchor one from Barefoot Contessa are soooo comfortable.  I also like to layer a pair of bike shorts underneath my dresses.  It allows for a bit more movement + it prevents the hot weather thigh chafe, for those us who don’t have thigh gap.  Accessories can play double duty if selected properly.  This pretty print scarf adds some personality to my look and can be wrapped around me for some added warmth on the chilly flight.

T I P : My carry on usually consists of a large tote like this one.  Perfect for magazines, an IPad and any other goodies you’d like to have with you during the flight.  I also pack a cross body bag and clutch in my carry on and fill them with my wallet, passport, lip balm, etc.  This keeps a couple less things out of my suitcase and gives my big tote compartments to help me find things in there more easily. 

Back to comfort…these shoes are amazing!  I have some brutal feet.  I need some good support if I plan on doing some all day walking (which I obviously will be in SF).  These cute sandals actually have built in orthaheel technology.  Instead of my usual flat as a pancake sandals, I will be bringing these contoured, supportive sandals to make sure my feet are as comfortable as possible while touring around.

I get way to excited when I’m packing and want to bring everything.  I’m narrowing down my choices and  I’ve been busy pinning for packing inspiration too keep my suitcase contents at a minimum.  Have any favourite packing tips?

Between working, blogging, motherhood, and the day to day hustle that is life, I haven’t been doing much that is ground breaking when it comes to my outfits.   As I’ve mentioned in many other posts, I’ve adopted a uniform mentality.  I’ve got my go-to looks that I stick too by mixing and matching some easy basics.  I simply don’t have the time I used to to spend getting ready.  A five minute shower, couple minutes to get dressed and then about ten minutes for hair and makeup is about the norm now.  Plus with all this hot weather we’ve been experiencing, why complicate things?

Instead of my usual black, grey, white combo, I opted to mix things up slightly with an easy red jersey dress, and neutral toned loose cardi.  With this being a work day outside the house, I left my hair down and threw on some shiny baubles as I didn’t have little hands grabbing at everything.

When I saw this dress hanging on the rack in the store, I thought of the famous Bill Blass quote: “When in doubt, wear red.”  I figured I’d go with those wise words.

 

 

Trending in My Closet

My Spring wardrobe inspiration. {*some of these exact items are in my wardrobe, while others are similar}

With this recent switch over to warmer weather, I’ve been editing my closet, adding in some new pieces and falling in love with some old favorites all over again.  For Spring I’ve been loving classic items worn together.  Currently I’m on repeat with a black dress, a denim jacket, a white sweater, and a whole bunch of fabulous accessories.  I’ve infused a bit of colour with some of my jewelry, my mirrored Ray Ban’s, and of course bright, happy polish.  You really can’t go wrong with the classics.  They work for my lifestyle and I feel great in them.  What have been your go-to’s for Spring?
