Fur Vests


1 | 2| 3 | 4

Fur vests are one of my favorite fall trends; they’re beyond chic and cozy, but they also keep you warm in the cooling months! Whether your fur coat is belted or just open and casual, it will complete practically any outfit.

How To Pack For Long Trips

How to Pack for Long Trips

I’m in Spain and Morocco for the next two weeks and thought it would be fun to share a couple of my packing essentials for longer trips. Space is of the essences when you are like myself and wanting to do a lot of shopping while away. We’re on day 3 and so far the clothes I have packed are working out great! My only regret is not breaking in my new shoes before wearing them on the streets for the past few days. My feet are a bit blistered and sore. You have no idea how tempted I was to wear my Nike running shoes with my dress today (fashion fail, I know).

On to my travel essentials:

Travel-Sized Toiletries: This may be a given, buying travel sized toiletries saves a lot of room. I typically throw them away on the last day of travel to make room for the treasures I’ve found on vacation. I love sets like this one that have everything you need in one pack.

Clothes: Whether it’s because I am pregnant and can only fit comfortably in dresses nowadays, or I am really trying to save space in my luggage, dresses are key to packing light. Most dresses are very lightweight and can eliminate the need for bulky pants. I do always pack one pair of comfy workout pants (I love these Gap pants) and a casual top that I wear on every airplane ride. Also, always bring a sweatshirt & swimsuit no matter where your destination. You never know when you are going to need them!

Shoes: I use the rule of 3s when it comes to shoes…one sandal…one comfy flat (just bought these cute smoking slippers!)…and a pair of sneakers. Wear the bulkiest pair of shoes when you are flying to save precious suitcase space.

Electronics: My ipad is a travel lifesaver. I download novels and translation apps, which lightens my carry on load from having to haul books around.

Are you an over packer? What are your tips for keeping your bag light on long trips?

What We’re Reading

What We're Reading Sept

Kennedy’s Reads:

Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hyman Rubio: Icy Sparks is quite a chilling story of one girls disease since she was a young girl. Extremely sad and eye-opening.

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer: Annihilation is the first book in a trilogy that is quite unique seeing that Vandermeer is releasing all three books in just one year 2014. The first was released in February, the second in May, and the third in mid September. Definitely from another world and not at all what you expect anything to be.

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath: I’m always a fan of dark stories and Sylvia Plath does an excellent job at telling such stories. Following one woman’s spiral into unstable mental health definitely makes you think.

In The House Upon The Dirt Between The Lake and The Woods by Matt Bell: This book is absolutely genius and might I add that I am lucky enough to have Matt Bell be teaching me creative writing at ASU. Yes, this author is my professor and I slightly fan girl during each class, even though I dare not tell him that I have read his work. This book with the incredibly long title dabbles in a world not like our own, written as a myth of sorts it’s definitely a fun read.

Mandy’s Reads:

Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date by Katie Heaney : This book was one of those books I finished in two days. It’s a short, fun read that brings flashbacks to Kindergarten crushes and college days.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: This book was highly hyped and I was excited to read it. The beginning was a bit slow, but leaves you anticipating all the twists and turns of the story.
