Summer Vacation Essentials

In Accessories on August, 11 2011

With summer almost coming to an end (brace yourself!), it’s always nice to take an end-of-the-season vacation.  Whether you’re heading to a relative’s somewhere in the country, taking a Euro adventure to sharpen up your language skills (or just for the to-die-for shopping), or going to one of those trendy islands like St. Tropez, traveling fashionably is always key.

Whenever I go away, I must be organized.  I like to have one roller suitcase so I don’t get a sore neck while dragging my bag through the airport, a great fedora to hide my tired eyes if I have an early flight, or to block out the sun while bathing on the beach, two cosmetic bags (one for makeup, and one for skincare/hair products), and of course a fabulous passport case.

Most of my traveling occurred in the beginning of the season, but in about two weeks, I’m planning on visiting my grandparents in Pittsburgh, PA for a few days.  I always love going to Pittsburgh because some of my best friends and family live there, so it feels like a second home (plus, it’s a break from my usual routine).  Not to mention, the Nordstrom there is amazing.
