This past weekend I was lake bound, sunning myself by a beautiful water front cabin in the state of Maine. I was graciously invited by my best gal pal and her family (thank you!!) to share a most relaxing mini vacation away in the wilderness. There is nothing more beautiful than a crystal clear stretch of water in the horizon and the sense of being in the middle of nowhere. Sadly all things come to an end and that enchanted forest oasis slowly morphed into familiar sights of home.
Traveling is something I love to do, and hope to be fortunate enough to enjoy throughout my life. I have bold plans of exploring the world, as I’m sure most of you share. I was inspired this weekend by images of distant places and the unique culture that thrives there, and of course I wanted to dress the part. I bought this stunning patchwork skirt at TJ Maxx years ago (on sale), and always reach to wear it. The intricate detailing takes me somewhere far away – maybe Morocco, or Peru. Yet, I usually find it a little difficult to style because of its volume and length. After much trial and error, I found it easiest to pair with a simple top, a belted waist, and some casual sandals. Or sky high sandals, which ever floats your boat. Of course, I simply cannot say no to these platforms (last seen here), so they kicked my boring flats to the curb. I love this look; the colors and patterns blend seamlessly to create a style that I hope will give you the travel bug as well!
