It is Fun to Shop for a Trip

True story, this weekend I put on my winter boots and the zipper got stuck so badly that I had to cut them off of me.  Not a good start to the Winter and I now need  a warm, sturdy pair of winter boots.  I should be pulling together my selections and getting ready for the next snow storm but, I am more interested in what to wear for our trip to Florida next week.  Nothing like a batch of freezing temps to get me thinking about being bare armed and sockless…but first I want to look chic on route and be able to go right to a casual dinner.  I love these wraps (on sale here and here) – they are like huge blankets to cuddle up in on the plane.  Did you get a good look at these shoes?  OMG!  They are ballets and not a clunky loafer, with a good rubber sole that is perfect for traveling. I love throwing on a beaded necklace to pull everything together, these Hipchik necklaces are just the right addition to this look and  would work well with almost any outfit while on vacation.  I still have to get to my Winter boots, but is is so much more fun to shop for a trip…

This is the Best and Chicest Rolling Carry-On Case

I am obsessed, totally, 100% obsessed with my Corroon Pullman carry-on rolling case!  My husband gave it to me last year and I have been rolling it everywhere I go since then.  I have used it as my carry-on for short trips and for larger trips, in addition to checking a bag, I have filled it with my photography equipment and lap top to carry-on the plane with me.  Wherever I go, I have had people literally stop me and ask me where my bag was from.  I love that! We have been spending many weekends this Fall on the go and it is the perfect size to pack everything I need, but for longer trips I am putting the weekender on my Christmas wish list (hint!) so I can have a little more room.  Don’t miss their small accessories, they have great Dopp kits, small pouches and the totes (see here and here) are to die for.  Plus, almost everything can be monogrammed. I think I should see if I can send mine back to be monogrammed…..what do you think?
