Cali Bound!

IMG_0927blog 13blog 14blog 15blog11

Hi all, Happy Easter!

So, as some of you may already know, Wayne and I have birthday’s just NINE days apart! And each year we like to do a little getaway as our “birthday presents” to one another, since traveling and experiencing new places is our favorite thing to do together!

Tonight, we’re off to San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited! We’re headed to a nine day “Cali Roadtrip,” just Wayne and I!

We’re site seeing in San Fran, drinking vino through Napa Valley, driving down the PCH and cannot wait to see Big Sur (addicted to “Big Little Lies” with Reese!), partying with amazing friends in Venice Beach / Malibu and then finishing the trip in Downtown LA! My love for California grows each and every time I visit, now just need to convince Wayne to move!!! ūüôā

I frequently get questions on what I wear on long flights, so I’ve linked my favorite travel outfit staples below! ¬†I think when you’re traveling it’s very important to have key pieces which are comfortable, layered and still fashionable!

Sweatshirt: H&M Ruffle Sweatshirt ($9.99!!!!! Trust Me you with thank me!!!)

Leggings:¬†Express Leather Scuba Leggings¬†(they stretch¬†and they’re comfy, all while giving your ‘athleisure’ look some edge!)

Jacket: Blank NYC Suede Moto Jacket (I always travel with layers, because I’m ALWAYS freezing or having a heatstroke!) ALSO: 30% OFF with code: FRIENDS¬†

Loafers: Steve Madden Jill Loafer (best Gucci Dupe I’ve seen!!!!) I can’t find the floral embroidered online with the faux fur, I just purchased them in store at Lord & Taylor for 30% OFF! Also, L&T is having their Friends & Family sale now through Tuesday, April 18, 2017. ¬† You get 30% almost everything, and 10% off cosmetics and fragrance with code: FRIENDS.¬†

Sunnies: Marc Jacobs 58mm Aviator Sunnies (30% off with code: FRIENDS)

Eye Mask: Sephora Collection Pearl Eye Mask РPerfecting & Brightening (These are heavenly, only $5, and no need to rinse afterwards. Just rub in circular motion under your eyes the remaining serum!)

Handbag: Celine Mini Luggage Black Tote (the greatest Christmas present I’ve ever received, thank you Wayne! :)) Of course you need a large tote to carry all your travel essentials!

Face Hydration: Evian mineral Water Face Spray – I love having something in my bag once I get off the flight to give my face a fresh glow! I use this throughout the day, everyday!!

See you all when I return, I’ll be posting some really good content for Spring and Summer fashion!

Xx, Creme

This summer I just cannot get enough of simple, chic dresses. ¬†I’ve purchased many dresses this season that are so effortless and can be dressed down with a pair of simple sandals or up with pretty, strappy wedges. ¬†This exact dress¬†I cannot find anywhere online; I purchased it in New York & Company¬†store. ¬†Similar style here, loving the black and white!

Also loving these looks too: NY & Co. Yellow Maxi (perfect in a tropical paradise), NY & Co. Tunic (Only $15!) (teal and white are amazing), NY & Co. Off-Shoulder Maxi. All these lovely dresses are on sale at New York & Company!

My new¬†Catherine Malandrino Espadrille Wedge Sandal, found at¬†Nordstrom Rack¬†could quite possibly be the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever owned! Other similar options: Catherine Malandrino Wedge ,¬†Marc Fisher,¬†Chlo√©, and¬†Stuart Weitzman.

My¬†accessories:¬†Dolce & Gabbana Sunnies,¬†“Love” Ring,¬†Diamond Pendant,¬†Rose Gold Cable Bracelet¬†and Pineapple Tumbler¬†(perfect for summer cocktails or juices)!
