Hey guys,

I have gotten several requests for packing tips so I put together a video of what I do when I’m packing for a trip.  Check our the short video on the blog:

There are 5 easy steps:

  1.  Make a list of the days your traveling, what you’ll be doing, and what you want to wear.
  2. Start pulling outfits you’d like to take and accessorizing.  I hang everything on a garment rack.
  3. Snap a pic of the complete outfit.
  4. Roll everything up
  5. Cross pack with your travel partner

I have an accessory obsession!  This summer I’ve noticed a lot of statement clutches.  I wanted to try a low investment fun piece to mix and match with different outfits.  Here are some of my FAVS.

This woven clutch is perfect for summer style.  It has a slight metallic threading throughout and is a great size for all your necessities.  I also mix and match the tassel.








Cork: This cork clutch will literally go with everything.  I love the clutch because it can hold your necessities:  phone, credit card, lip color without lugging a heavy bag.  I throw mine in my tote or work bag and just grab it out when I need those important things or am running in somewhere.

Check out the cork clutch at J Crew Outlet.

Bright Beauty:  This fun bright clutch is my summer favorite.  How perfect is this for summer BBQ’s, happy hours, and the beach.  Who would have thought it would go with so many things?  It’s less than $20 and makes a big impact.


This spicy clutch would make jeans and a white T-shirt amazing.  It’s so colorful and fun.  I snagged mine at the Runway TJ Maxx for a steal but Nordstrom has in stock or order online here.
