Guest Post: Travel Needs

Hey lovebugs! Taking a quick vacation (ha!) from color combo week for a fabulous guest post that I couldn't wait to put up! Check back tomorrow for the last of the color combos!

Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to be guest posting today on TCB! I've been a longtime reader of Kelsey's blog. I read her blog weekly for inspiration and styling tips. To start you off, when I travel my favorite thing is to be as comfortable as possible, but looking effortlessly chic. I got the inspiration for this travel wardrobe from fashion blogger, Liz of the fashion blog, Late Afternoon. Her look is what I envisioned for a summer trip with a few essentials of my own listed below. Read on!

Striped top - $97 -
A flattering shape with a nautical feel. Wear it again with skinny jeans and black high heels.

TopShop ankle length skirt - $70 -
Wear this eye-catching long maxi skirt to stand out from the airport crowd!

Bold Fashioned Journal - $27 -
A journal to record your trip's precious memories.

Steve Madden gold glitter flat - $61 -
Ms. Bri over at Design Love Fest inspired me to add these sparkly flats to the look. Check out how she wore them here.

Diane von Furstenberg travel bag - $120 -
This stylish case (yes...I know this goodie is over $100) expands allowing extra packing space for those last-minute must-have items or special travel souvenirs.

Aldo bag - $60 -
This messenger bag is perfect to carry your ipad, kindle, laptop and all your other gadgets in.

Passport wallet - $48 -
A chic passport wallet keeps all your travel documents in one place - with space for your boarding pass, passport, ID and credit cards.

Nine West resin watch - $59 -
A standout bangle watch with soft gold tones.

Carolee pearl jewelry - $56 -
This necklace and the watch above give feminine touches to this look.


  1. I have those gold Steve Madden flats and I LOVE THEM. They're super comfy, but so fun and I get so many compliments on them-- they definitely jazz up my boring suit days :)

  2. Thanks for letting me guest post! ;)

    @Jenna I bought those flats after I saw them on Design Love Fest!

  3. OOOH, I like! My favorites are the Aldo bag and watch!

  4. LOVE that skirt. But I love all thing teal, so really no surprise ;)


Hey lovebug! Thank you so much for you comment. I just loved spending time with you and I hope you come back again soon! TCB.
