Backpacking: Amsterdam to Cologne

Amsterdam Arrival We started our backpacking adventure with a long flight from Boston to Amsterdam. I have never been more tired on any flight and, looking back, I would absolutely have paid for the extra legroom seats. However, you really can’t beat the view as you arrive in Amsterdam. Seeing all the waterways and greenery is breathtaking and we were so excited! W Amsterdam Hotel …

Denim in Dublin

As I’ve mentioned before, my travel style is all about comfort and reusable pieces. If it can’t be worn in multiple outfit combinations then it doesn’t go in my suitcase. Why pack something that you know can only be worn in perfect conditions? I would rather leave that space free for a potential souvenir shopping trip since I find some of my favorite pieces abroad! …

Ireland Roadtrip: Dublin

The Westin in Dublin While out original plan had been to split up out Dublin days between the beginning and end of our trip, we had determined it made more sense if we didn’t have to keep going back to the car rental part of the airport (hence the mad dash to get out of Dublin that first morning). We decided to drive around the …

Striped Tee & Classic Vest

When the cooler weather arrives we all rush to the back of our closets for our old favorites. Sometimes all it takes are a few of the classics to help ease us into Fall and once mid-August arrives I start the countdown to scarf weather. I don’t know about you, but I know exactly which items will be making their way back into rotation. I love that …

Ireland Roadtrip: Killarney to the Rock of Cashel

The Dunloe Hotel in Killarney After two full days of driving and sightseeing, we were looking forward to a little bit of relaxation. When we had decided to go on a Fall vacation, we knew we were in desperate need of a few “chill” days and we had looked around for that peaceful spot. In our search, we stumbled across The Dunloe hotel online and knew instantly …

Old Navy Blanket Scarf

Over the past few years, I’ve really pared down my packing list when I travel. Mostly motivated by my aversion to paying baggage fees and my very real fear of lost luggage, I made the transition from a full size suitcase to a carry-on a few years ago and I’m not going back! I’ve learned quickly that this isn’t the time to make impulse choices …

Ireland Roadtrip: Galway to the Cliffs of Moher

When I put together my dream travel list Ireland was always right there at the top. C’mon, I can’t be the only one who dreamed of jumping on a plane destined for Dublin. I’ve always wanted to see those rolling hills, settled pints, and friendly people. There is just something about Ireland that’s pure magic. We arrived in Dublin ahead of schedule (thank you Aer Lingus) …

Autumn Layers

After all those months of Summer and sun, we might not have been ready to say goodbye once September rolled around. Lucky for us, we have this fabulous grace period where we can dive into those layers without fully committing to tights, coats, and gloves. Personally, this is my time of year. When you can wear all your favorite clothes in one outfit and call …

Menswear to Borrow

Menswear has swept through our wardrobes and it seems like it’s here to stay. What might have started with he boyfriend denim look has exploded into a full closet of shopping opportunities. Personally, I’m loving the oversized, structures trends that it’s brought us. When shopping for menswear pieces, there is now an extensive selection within our own departments. Almost any choice has been tailored for …

Mix and Match Prints

Fall has always been my favorite season. With the cooling temperatures and the layering opportunities, there are always so many new looks to try. I mean, just because I’m not in school doesn’t mean I can’t reinvent myself come September. Going into this season, I was eager to try mixing prints as the perfect way of updating my wardrobe and this Old Navy shirt proved to …
