Ladylike in the City

One of the most versatile pieces in my closet has to be my white blouse. It’s an item I’ll frequently travel with for it’s versatility; I love how it can make even a pair of jeans look more polished. I’ve been needing a new white blouse in my arsenal, and loved this one from kate spade new york. The thing that sets it above the others is that it has the feminine detail of the oversized bow. It adds a sweet, ladylike quality. I paired it with another favorite of mine: a midi skirt! This one is perfect for fall with the plaid print in an easy neutral.
And remember that pink purse I wore the other week? See, I told you it would still work for fall! Pink is perfect for all seasons and this crossbody bag was a great choice in NYC. It even held a change of flats when I needed to walk around the city between meetings.

Speaking of New York, Matthew and I are in town for the day before flying out on our trip this evening. Did I tell you where we’re going? We’re heading to Portugal!! I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been about this trip! Since my Dad is 100% Portuguese it’s always been my dream to visit the country {my fatherland!}. Matthew and I were looking at flights and then just decided to go for it about a month ago. The fares go down significantly after summer, since kids are back in school, but it’s still a great time to go and the weather is going to be so nice.

I have some posts scheduled for this week but make sure to follow along on Instagram! I’m going to try to post as often as I can when there’s WIFI, but I also just want to relax and enjoy everything. We haven’t done a big trip like this since our honeymoon so it’s been much needed!
