TIP - TRAVEL/PACKING

When packing for a holiday only pack simple, basic and classic items!
When I was packing for my honeymoon I thought to myself, these are photos I will be looking back on forever!!! I didn't want to look back at them and cringe because I was wearing the latest 'trend'.
My honeymoon photos are my favourite to look back on and I'm always printing out new ones to frame and people always ask if they are recent... so it's definitely worked :-)

It's funny... 5 years later I'm still wearing the same outfits and pack most of them for other trips!

Honeymoon - New York, The Hamptons, LA, San Fran & Vegas (2009)


I literally still wear all of the above!


I pretty much wear this on a daily basis for work!


This jacket has traveled with me to so many countries!



Love this combo and still wear it for brunch dates!


A simple one piece costume is always a good idea when you want to show family some holiday snaps!


These sandals are still one of my favs, wear them every summer!

I wear this skirt as a dress now but still love this combo!


Summer staple outfit!




My go to outfit when boarding a plane!

Denim jacket = summer must have!






I love wearing this scarf as a shawl.. reminds me of the one
Carrie wears in Sex and the City circa 1998
