With the holiday season just around the corner that means getting ready to do some traveling. Whether it is heading on some exotic vacations to warmer climates to traveling to visit family for Thanksgiving, the key to traveling? Having the right essentials!
ICYMI – I have a slight obsession with Red Dress Boutique! From adorable dresses to chic tops to stylish heels, accessories + more, Red Dress has become my go-to for all of my fashionable pieces I wear for work + play. I can’t get over how affordable their styles are + they make the color lover in me beyond happy! Since summer is here + that means time to switch up your wardrobe, I am rounding up my current favs from Red Dress Boutique below!
I am so excited to be on vacation! I have had a whirlwind of a year so taking time to relax, unwind + disconnect has been much needed. My boyfriend + I are away in Florida to celebrate my birthday + our anniversary so to get in a tropical state of mind I wanted to share some of my favorite tropical print dresses that I will be rocking on my trip!
These photos were taken before I started Jenny Craig – crazy what a difference this program has made in my life…I have lost over 40 pounds + truly feel so much better than I did when I was shooting these images 😉
Anyways, I can’t remember exactly where I got this tropical print dress but I found a few similar styles I am linking to below:
I am off to Florida for a long overdue vacay! That means logging off, relaxing + enjoying some time with my boo. We are heading to Disney to celebrate my birthday + our anniversary! We are making it our tradition to head to Florida to kick off a new year and celebrate these occasions so that means I am usually prepping beginning in early January for all of the goodies I want to bring along on our trip. From colorful swimsuits to durable luggage to the perfect pair of sunnies + floppy hat, I rounded up my favorite vacay must-haves below!
I hope ya’ll had a great Memorial Day Weekend! I sure did – it was filled with photoshoots, pool days + plenty of BBQ (yasss I love a good corn on the cob with some yummy burgers…who is with me?! hehe :p) Even though a lot of people were traveling this past weekend, I tend to travel at non-peak times (to avoid high airfare costs or traffic haha) so our next trip is to Arizona in June! I love to always plan a trip in the near future so I have something to look forward to…just keeps you excited about what’s ahead in my opinion :p
Whether you plan a day trip or a cross country trip or an international trip, one thing is key…packing! I don’t know about you but one of the most exciting parts of upcoming travel is prepping for what is ahead + what is always on my mind when traveling? Traveling in STYLE duh! From my airport look to what I am packing…it all starts with stylish, durable + functional luggage! My go-to brand? Gabbiano Luggage
Since I travel a lot, finding durable yet stylish luggage was super important to me. Goodbye are the days of your wheel jamming at the airport or the zipper constantly getting stuck…all I wanted was luggage I could count on that also looked great for the gram…you know, because if it isn’t on Instagram, did it even happen? 😉
That’s why I was so excited to find Gabbiano Luggage and the amazing variety of styles they carry…so much so they make you want to travel. Whether you like a sturdy hard shell luggage set or a lighter soft side luggage set, Gabbiano has the luggage you need for any trip!
I literally love the luggage sets from Gabbiano because 1) the 3 piece sets means you get great pieces that can be utilized for any trip big or small 2) the styles are trendy, colorful, sophisticated + fun…depending on your personal style + 3) the pieces are durable – they will withstand being tossed at baggage check or rolled throughout the airport to your gate etc.
I personally love the color amethyst because being a February baby, that is my birthstone…so the fact that I was able to get this Gabbiano Luggage Genova Collection Set in Amethyst made me one happy camper. The color + hard shell design matches my personal style making it perfect for travel + for countless Instagram photos (because did a trip even happen if it didn’t make it to the gram? I think not haha)
Best part?Gabbiano luggage has enough room for ALL of my essentials…trust me I pack a ton. Whether it is shoes, bags, clothes or toiletries, I am a serial over packer but luckily Gabbiano luggage has enough room for me to pack everything including the kitchen sink…great news for me…bad news for my boyfriend who hates my overpacking. He also is not a fan of lugging my luggage around the airport (because the wheels would jam or it was too heavy etc). BUT with Gabbiano luggage, I no longer need to bug him to handle my luggage because I can carry + roll it with ease thanks to Gabbiano’s durable + functional design.
Since my luggage is full of style (inside + out), I had to share an easy yet chic outfit to wear when traveling AND It pairs perfectly with my Gabbiano Luggage!
My comfy dress is from 32 Degrees. I legit LOVE this dress because it comes in a variety of colors, is affordable + it flatters every body type. I have been living in their dresses ever since I got them (even wore one to Universal last weekend – ICYMI it’s here).
I paired the dress with this fun patchwork denim bomber jacket from Skies Are Blue Clothing – I love the fun patches for a casual cool look. My kicks are my favorite Adidas Superstars. They are cool, comfortable + easy to slip on + off at airport security.
Where are you traveling to next?
Don’t forget to bring your Gabbiano Luggage along for the ride!
