my bags are packed – on Coco + Kelley

While Cassandra is Safari – ing in Africa she asked me to do a little guest post over on Coco + Kelley and since I am also off galavanting around in New Zealand, I figure why not stick with the travel theme and give a little peek into what made its way into my suitcase.

While I was searching for a new bathing suit, (I mean it is summer over here after all and I’m pretty sure that qualifies as a good excuse for a new one) I came across so many that I loved, I thought I would show a few alternates in case you are planning a little warm getaway or a tropical spring break vaca of your own.

Yes, I think it even tops my wedding dress! Pretty much everything about it suited me perfectly. The print, the cut, the light and flowy feel of the silk and how it moved in the wind. So, well done Rachel Zoe, you had me at croc.  Also, I used the fact that it was an English hat and fascinator wearing wedding as an excuse to wear a bit of Ban.do in my hair.

I will definitely be making up a few more excuses to wear this ensemble again even if it is just around my house… maybe it will make vacuuming more enjoyable?.
