Two things, number one: I am a terrible blogger. I’m typically so into whatever it is that I’m doing that I forget to take pictures to share on the blog. I realize that I need to be better about that if I’m going to keep this thing going, lol. But it’s also good to just enjoy and live in the moment so don’t forget to put down your phone/camera every now and then. Secondly, the blog is getting a revamp. Actually it’s getting a totally new look complete with a new name! Oh and I’ll be changing my name…to my real name :-O! Yes, I made this one up, well not completely, it could have totally been my name and probably is in some alternate reality. BUT in THIS reality, my name is something else and this current one isn’t working for me. Just not feeling it, ya know? Anyway, more on all of that in the next post.

For today, here is an outfit we shot yesterday. Casual and comfortable. This lightweight extra long cardigan by Coin is an essential piece for summer in my opinion. It really pulls an outfit together and protects the skin from the scorching Las Vegas desert heat. I’m also adoring this Rebecca Minkoff saffiano tote, I’ve used it non stop for the last month. The sturdy handles and oversized style made it perfect for carrying all my travel essentials whilst in Mexico last month. I literally left home with only this purse and a carry on, so easy.

R & R

In celebration of the boyfriend’s birthday we are going on a cruise! It’s a great way to forget how old you’re getting, haha. On a more serious note, I have not packed a thing and we leave in a few hours. I did however, prepare myself by making this pretty packing visual “list”! These are my staple pieces I am definitely bringing. Why is there a cardigan, a shrug and a long sleeve top you ask? Great question! You can put your hand down now. Weather forecasts tend to be unreliable and I’m really counting on that because I’m seeing cloudy skies and rain for almost the entire trip! We’re going to Mexico by the way, why is the sun on vacation this week?! For this reason, I prepared light tops that I can layer over a dress or wear with pants and other basic pieces in case it gets a little too cool.

Two more things I have to mention. There was no paid advertisement, trust me. I just loooooooove these two particular items. First is the Furla hobo handbag. This one is almost identical to one I bought a few years back on my first trip to Paris. It was the one and only souvenir I brought home. A few years later and it’s still spectacular and looks exactly the same even though I use it nearly every single day. The quality, of course, is superb. It’s simple but luxe. The one I listed however has a second strap so it can be worn cross-body which is fantastic and super useful when traveling. I may just add this one to my collection just because of that extra strap! Lastly, I have to rave about the extra wide brim hats by San Diego Hat Company. They are so beautiful and fit perfectly in any beach or poolside setting. These in particular are really wide and oh so well made; if you’re only going to buy one sun hat this summer, make sure it’s this one.
