I have always loved the weekends, for many reasons, but I get extremely excited to get dressed up in a summery outfit for wherever we may be going. With that being said, summer vacations are my FAVORITE! Packing for weeks away is a fun task for me (call me weird I know). I am going to Florida, NYC and New Jersey this summer, so the outfit planning is in full swing. Here are my top 5 vacation necessities no matter where I go in the summer.
Summer is hands down my favorite time of year. I do not know if it is the long days of sun, barbecue, summer dresses, tan, or just the abundance of time. With that being said, I love having extra time to really accessorize and get use out of all my jewelry and handbags. Sometimes the school year is just a tad too hectic and I forget to toss it all on. However, I am a complete bracelet fanatic. Between bangles, wraps and watches, I always have something on.
Finding the perfect face products is something I put countless hours and money into. I have tried an endless amount of cleansers, foams, moisturizers and masks in order to find those that really work for me. Nothing is worse than having products that do not illuminate your skin, moisturize, and cleanse deeply.
I am finally going through all my NYC pictures and had to share this magical place as soon as I could. I cannot put into words how much I loved the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. I have grown up going to the Dallas Arboretum, and although I adore it more than I can tell you, the freshness, pop of color, fields of flowers and delicious cafe had me swooning.
