Rich purples and shiny grays would make for an especially luxurious holiday party. So pretty and unique! Don’t you agree?

On a side note, I’ll be back to share lovely inspiration, trends and more with you in February! Until then, I hope all of you have a very happy and safe holiday season!

Get Styled: Honeymoon in Europe

November 23, 2011

Hi everyone! I cannot believe that this is my last post – I have truly enjoyed making these boards for you guys!

The ‘Get Styled’ post for today has to do with the necessities for a honeymoon in Europe (or really any trip to Europe!). Since I spent 6 months living in France this past year, I thought about what I really loved having with me, and what I wish I would’ve brought with me. I have a giant cashmere scarf that is perfect for taking on long trips. It works as a scarf, but also a blanket/pillow on the plane. I also have a Longchamp bag that is perfect for trips. It can fit a lot and it folds up to fit perfectly inside your luggage. And while I love using my digital camera to take pictures, some of my favorite pictures are from my Diana camera. The camera distorts the film (kinda like instagram) and it’s a fun surprise to see the pictures when the film develops!

Some other ‘must-haves’: leggings serve as comfortable travel wear, pajamas and day wear. Black boots are perfect for walking around and can easily be dressed up or down (just make sure they are worn in!). Also make sure to pack a good moisturizer – my skin dries out on long plane rides, so I always pack a sample size of Clinique moisturizer in my carry on.
