Hip, hip, hooray! You made it to Friyay! This week was so long, but California is getting so close I can almost taste it! Okay, okay...maybe that's the wine I've been drinking this week in preparation, but still. This time next week we'll be in the sunshine state! (Can you tell I'm excited?!) But there are definitely a few things that need to happen before then like packing...so I'm pretty sure you can guess what I'll be doing this weekend.
Usually I kind of dread packing, but thanks to these tips for packing I'm kind of excited about it. I've seriously been thinking about what to pack for like the last two weeks. Does anyone else do that for a trip they're really excited about? But anyways, I don't want to bore you with my random packing thoughts so instead I'll share a few of my favorite things this week.
Star drop earrings
I'm not usually someone who goes for statement earrings but when I got these in the mail I immediately fell in love. The earrings are the perfect size for me and I love the fun star design. (Plus you can't beat the $13 price tag.) It's a fun alternative to the statement necklace I usually pick for my date night look.
Fresh flowers are my jam and always make me smile, but for some reason I am on the #strugglebus when it comes to keeping them alive these days. I don't know what but hydrangeas are the one thing I seem to be able to keep alive. Luckily they're one of my favorite flowers, so I'm not mad about it.
Pink flamingo gummies
You know how much I absolutely LOVE flamingos so when I got an email that Sugarfina had introduced a pink flamingo gummy you know I ordered a box...or three. They're pink grapefruit flavored and taste delicious! Not to mention they are so cute looking.
Obviously one of the things we will be doing in California is visiting wineries, but once we started making reservations it was hard to keep track of all the details. Luckily, I have the TripIt App! This app is literally a lifesaver. It creates a trip and organizes all your reservations for flights, hotels, restaurants, tours, whatever...by date and time. It shows all the details and you can access it online. Now you'll never miss a reservation again!
Ruffled off the shoulder top
I like the off the shoulder trend, but I usually shy away from it. I have pretty narrow shoulders and most of the time the tops aren't really fitted, so they don't look that great on me. While I was browsing ASOS looking at this flamingo skirt for like the fourth time (I finally ended up buying it), I saw this striped ruffled top. It's definitely going to be one of my go to's this summer. It's the perfect mix of classic and modern and something I can dress up or down.
