travel essentials.

It’s here! It’s here! The week is finally here! In just a little under 2 days I’ll be lugging my gigantic bag onto a flight to Dublin, Ireland. My European adventure with my little sis will have officially begun and it’s finally just setting in that I will be away from home for the next 6 weeks. Ireland, France, Italy, Greece & Switzerland….CAN.NOT.WAIT!

In the midst of doing insane amounts of laundry today, and starting the preliminary packing stages, I can’t help but ponder the perfect travel accessories. It’s kinda weird to admit it, but even with all of my travels in the past I’ve never used one of those neck pillows – is that odd?! Do those things even really work?? Worth the investment??

I’m certaintly on the hunt for the perfect bag to lug around all my stuff in while we are exploring all the cities – the one I took on my last trip abroad didn’t do the trick. What are your fav travel accessories? If you’re like my Mom you travel with your own bed pillow. What are your travel must-haves??

bow tie wednesday / 43.

I’m downright obsessed with the way Tommy Ton captures style details – bow ties included. These menswear looks from Europe have me rummaging through my closet for the perfect topcoat for this rainy day weather.

I’m endlessly inspired by fashion and these detail shots absolutely make me swoon. Those floral patterned gloves? The multi-colored buttons? A feather bow tie & a neon pink hat? Yes. Please!

I’m a big believer that chicks can pull off bow ties just as well as any fella out there and Blaire of Atlantic – Pacific is the perfect example. If you haven’t come across her blog yet, you are in for quite the fashion treat. I love the idea of bow ties any day of the week, cause keeping them tucked in a drawer and just as an event wear seems like a waste of a pretty amazing accessory, right?

Happy Wednesday friends!

I’m always looking for fun ways to spruce up an outfit and these bow ties are just perfect. Wishing I could snag one in every color! Claudine & Compagnie certainly are proof that bow ties are DEFINITELY not just for him!

Okay call me ridiculous if you’d like, but I love me some reality t.v.

There is nothing better than ending a super draining day by zoning out to some reality trashy goodness. One of my fav new shows is It’s A Brad Brad World. Yep – you can judge…cause I don’t care. I love Brad Goreski even if he caused drama-RAMA-RAMA with one of my other fashion favs Miss Rachel Zoe.

Okay in a nutshell this is how the story goes…Brad used to be Rachel’s assistant. Brad leaves Rachel. Rachel doesn’t like it. Brad starts his own styling biz. Rachel doesn’t like it. Brad doesn’t care. Brad starts his own show. Jenn loves it.

So long story short, I think Brad is adorable and the fact that he is often strutting around while wearing a vintage bow tie makes him that much more lovable. Oh, AND the finale of the show this season made me cry my eyes out. Gary’s 10 year anniversary gift to Brad was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen in my life. Their love for each other is absolutely inspiring!

Summer will be here before we know it and although I dread the thought of pulling my hibernated winter white skin out for all to see, I imagine that these little bow tie bikinis by eva elz might be the perfect way to help me forget about my pasty white legs and remind me that summer is all about fun in the sun.

Would these not be the perfect wedding/honeymoon attire for those warm weather destinations?? LOVE these!
