As I look back at my past travels to places such as Morocco, Portugal and Paris and prepare for my travels ahead, I wanted to share a few of my very favorite travel must-haves that I never leave home without. I’ve spent a lot of time living out of a suitcase, and these are the pieces I always come back to.
For me, travel is all about comfort with a bit of flair. For the plane, I always pack a cozy cardigan and recently I’ve loved the functional simplicity of our monogrammed oxfords.
A comfortable (but cute) pair of walking shoes is a must. I’m partial to my classic New Balance 574’s. And to top it off, a statement handbag and my favorite pajamas make me feel at home wherever I am.
I love our Casablanca caftan because it’s so versatile. It can go from beach to bar. So whether you find yourself at the ocean, getting a drink at the resort or pool-side, it’s the perfect summer cover-up.
To dress for the nightlife, it’s all about comfort and color for me. I love comfortable and low maintenance pieces that make a statement.
Celebrating love is easy when you are surrounded by amazing people. Valentine’s Day generally revolves around a person’s significant other, but in the past few years, Galentine’s Day evolved. Celebrating the love of the women in your life is something we can get behind. We are lucky to be a team full of wonderful girls and one amazing male intern (Hey, Javier!). Here’s a look into our Team DIY Galentine’s Happy Hour.
Inspired by Pinterest, we made a hand-painted table runner that turned out so cute and chic. Our goal for this event was to put a creative, non-cheesy spin on classic Valentine’s decorations.
Place cards are always a fun way to spice up a table display. We used our Goddess Folded Notecards cut in half to make DIY place cards.
You can’t forget to get a little gift for all your girls. We all got Love Collection Journals in our favorite Katie Kime prints and monogram. Monogrammed gifts are always a great way to make your gift personalized and feel special.
