Travel

Oh the Places you will go

The past three months have been a whirlwind of excitement, change, adventure, and growth. I’ve been traveling non-stop with family and friends. I’ve had the chance to go to Florida, Vermont, New Hampshire, Vancouver, Rome, Paris, and New York. I have certainly caught the travel bug and can’t wait to explore more states, cities, and little nooks around Boston.

I started a new job at the end of January. It allowed me the opportunity to take on new challenges. After being there for a couple of months, I have to say, I’m much happier and more fulfilled than ever before. I was able to learn so much from my previous job that I have been able to apply and I’m thankful for having that opportunity. It’s always scary leaving the life you know, but it’s been satisfying to push my boundaries and build my professional skills.

I’m moving from my cute studio to a one bedroom. It’s the chance to redecorate (yay!) and try a new environment. It’s also forced me to do some serious spring cleaning and get rid of clothes, furniture, and books that I no longer need or use. I’m up to 20 Trader Joe’s shopping bags worth of stuff that I’m going to get rid of and I’m only half done! Help!

Overall, while I haven’t been as active on this blog as I would like, I’ve been taking advantage of opportunities to grow and expand my horizons. Now that things are starting to settle down, I’m excited to jump back into painting, writing, and blogging. I’ve miss you all and can’t wait to be back in the swing of things.

Airport Casual

The best outfits to wear when you are flying are light, monochromatic and slightly fancy. Why fancy you may ask. Just in case as you are checking in there’s an extra seat in first class. It’s a rule of thumb that if you look good and ask if there are any free upgrades you may get lucky and get bumped up! However if you are wearing an old college sweatshirt, yoga leggings with sneakers your chances are much lower.

Here’s a simple, casual and cool outfit to wear while flying. A flowing top will give you comfort and room to move with black pants to compliment the loose top. A scarf fills out this look by adding an additional layer of elegance and touch of care.

Red, White and Blue

I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July weekend! I traveled to Cape Cod with my family and I’m having a blast. It is the perfect combination of family, delicious food and outside activities. Although today has been filled with indoor festivities due to bad weather. July 4th is one of the biggest holidays for my family because it’s a chance to get the whole family together without the pressure bigger holidays bring.

It’s a chance to relax in comfortable clothes that add a touch of patriotism. Wearing red, white and blue is a great way to get in theme! Many outfits in my suitcase are in those colors. This outfit is great for a casual night with skinny jeans with a touch of flair in the leopard heels.
