Last week we went on a family beach vacation to Lake Michigan in South Haven, MI. The weather was perfect and we had so much fun! Today I want to recap and share some of the outfits I wore on our family beach vacation.Read more
It’s that time of the year when I get to be jealous of everyone’s warm weather spring break pictures on Instagram. With our recent move and Kevin’s busy work schedule, it looks like we will be staying home for another spring break in Michigan. I would love a good vacation, but at the same time, there are lots of things to be done around here. I’ll just have to wait until summer.Read more
Let’s talk about travel outfits today. This is a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for a while. I’ve written posts on travel outfits in the past, but today I wanted to dive deeper into the topic. Last month my husband and I went on a trip together for our anniversary. (Read about it HERE). It had been a while since I had last flown so I went to Pinterest for some travel outfit ideas. I am not going to lie, I was a little disappointed in what I found.Read more
My husband and I are going on a trip in a few weeks to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. It’s something that we have been wanting to do for a while, but with the pandemic, we weren’t sure if we were going to be able to get away this year. Luckily things are all working out for us and we have planned a trip to Las Vegas.Read more
1.) A Tote Bag– As a mom, I can’t think of anything more useful than a giant tote bag. The bigger, the better. I always like to bring a tote bag as my carry on when flying because it’s like bringing an extra suitcase. One thing that’s great about a large tote bag is that you can throw a smaller purse inside and still use the tote as your personal item when you’re flying and bringing your suitcase as a carry-on. This bag above is from Rock Paper Flower’s Jute Tote Bag collection. I love the whale tale print on the bag, but sadly they are sold out on this print, but they do have some other great prints worth checking out.
2.) A makeup/cosmetic bag– I always need a safe place to transport all my make up and this adorable pineapple print is the perfect travel makeup bag. It’s large enough to fit all my makeup, brushes and then some. I’m still debating on whether I want to keep it as my go to makeup bag or use it daily as a purse organizer.
3.) Small pouch- I don’t know about you, but I’m always losing all my stuff in my tote bags. Having a little pouch to organize all your important things in your purse is extremely helpful. It’s nice to have a safe place to keep your keys, passport and credit cards. I love this black and white wavy stripe canvas pouch. This is now going to be something that I use daily in my purses.
4.) Comfortable Travel outfit- Lastly, but not least, I always need to have a comfortable travel outfit. This black and white palm print kimono is perfect to wear as a comfortable travel look. I love how it looks over leggings and a tank top. The best part about this kimono is that it’s totally versatile. It’s great to wear on travel days, but it also makes a great bathing suit cover up. It would also look great layered over a dress.
Even though I plan on using all my new travel accessories now, it makes me really excited to plan our next “real vacation”. What are some of your must have travel items?
