With as much travelling as I do each year, I make it a point to plan my outfits according to the destination. The weather, the city’s local style vibe, the different activities to do…these are all things to consider when planning outfits for a trip!

Today’s Style Destination is beautiful and rainy Seattle. When packing for rainy weather, it’s always a good idea to pack a pair of rain boots, lightweight outerwear, cozy sweaters, and of course, a cute umbrella! Staying dry can totally look stylish!

Happy travels!

It’s a long holiday weekend ahead of us, and if you’re like me, you’ve probably already been planning those weekend outfits! This edition of Style on a Budget is all about creating an affordable casual date outfit without breaking the bank.

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!

Look 1, Look 2, Look 3, Look 4

If you’re like me and love to travel, you know how important it is to pack appropriately to your destination. For this first ever Style Destination, we’re going to the beach! Laguna Beach to be exact!

Here are some must-have pieces that will be right at home in this posh and sunny seaside location:

One-piece swimsuit: This looks so chic when you’re sipping a cocktail poolside!

Cute cover-ups: Always pack a couple of cover-ups, whether it’s a pretty sarong wrap or a sheer tunic.

Woven beach tote: A classic straw beach tote is not only practical, it’s always stylish.

Colorful bikini: Bright bikinis are so hot right now. Whether you do a solid or a fun print, the brighter, the better!

Maxi skirt or dress: The boho look is alive and well in SoCal, and a maxi is perfect for a shopping day around Laguna.

Flat sandals: Pack a dressy flat sandal and comfy rubber flip flops so you have options for lounge and play.

Sporty beach shorts: These are perfect for beach volleyball or just spending a day running around on the sand.
