Hey friends, happy Monday! I could not be more excited about this week! Casey and I are taking Harley to New York to stay with my in-laws while we then escape on a two week European trip to Ireland and Italy! TWO WEEKS! Two weeks is such a longgggg time to leave Harley and by far the longest we have ever been without her. She’s familiar with my in-laws’ home and is so good with them, so I know SHE’LL be just fine. Me on the other hand… well, let’s hope I don’t have an anxiety attack! I know it’ll be so nice for them to have some alone time with her because whenever I’m around she tends to cling on to me. Also, we booked this trip forever ago, before knowing that we’d be in our own home, but fortunately I have family staying at my house so I don’t have to stress! We don’t leave for Ireland until Friday night. I’ll definitely be posting on Instagram and Instastories, so if you’re interested in seeing castles, duomos and amazing sites, be sure to follow along here.
This striped dolly top is definitely coming with me on the trip. I figured after many pasta dishes and slices of pizza, I’ll be thankful for flowy tops like this! Last year, I wanted it so badly, but it sold out really quickly. When I saw that it was restocked this year, I knew I had to get my hands on it pronto! You know my obsession with blue and white stripes is on another level, but with the under $40 price tag and adorable feminine detail, this one is a standout for sure!
Bow flats and bow heels are totally trending right now. At first I was on the fence about this pair that I’m wearing. They have been all over Instagram and on some people I thought they were the cutest shoes ever, and then on other people, I thought they were kinda weird looking. It’s funny how shoes can look so different on everyone! Another perfect example… these $25 bow sandals are loved by EVERYONE! On me, they look frumpy and awful. I am so devastated!! Haha!!
The rest of my accessories will be coming with me on my trip as well. I splurged on this bag at the last Shopbop sale and am OBSESSED! It’s definitely a great dupe for the Chanel boy bag I’ve been dreaming about having. The light grey color goes with almost everything and because of it’s jumbo size, it fits a ton of stuff in it! The bag also comes in a light pink that is so so pretty and white and black. I also have the smaller version in black! Rebecca Minkoff is one of my favorite handbag designers and there are so many great bags to choose from! And lastly, I want to point out that these earrings are not heavy at all which I think is important to know before deciding to purchase a pair of statement earrings. It’s the worst when you love a pair of earrings, but after five minutes, you’re ready to rip them out of your ears!
Stay tuned for an awesome giveaway that I’ll be hosting towards the end of this week. I swear, it’s a good one guys! One that you won’t want to miss!!
