Winter Travel Must-Haves

After all the holiday chaos, don’t you just want at cocktail with an umbrella and your toes in the sand?  I sure do.  Last year, I was lucky enough to go on a Winter Get-Away.  This winter I might go to Okemo to ski but will not be escaping winter weather.  So, I want to live vicariously through you.  Are you going on an amazing freeze-free vacation?
Winter Get-away Must-Haves:
{Sunglasses (not your most expensive pair just in case you lose them!)|Amazing book|tinted moisturizer with sunscreen|adorable hat (even is you’re not a hat person, it’s ok on vaca!)|beach bag|amazing & colorful accessories}

One of my favorite parts of going away is finding fun, unique vacation dresses.  I am in love with  flowy dresses that go great with a tan yet comfortable. I love that on vacation you can get away with any pattern and any style. A few faves below from 1Dress.  They have an amazing variety of different styles and sizes for any occasion.  I am in love with the Grecian style white dress on the left.


Newport Getaway

I am very excited for a long weekend in Newport, RI with my family.  It is a much-needed getaway to take a break from the hustle and bustle of my career, moving into a news house, a break from the kids (my pup Zoey and kitty Jingles), and just a weekend of relaxation and fun.  Newport is extra special to me because of a few reasons.  It was me and Ryan’s first weekend trip together when we first met.  We had blast looking at the beautiful Newport mansions, checking out the local Blues Cafe and just admiring the historical town.  Also, my uncle has a time share there and he passed away this year.  Inviting the entire family to Newport to stay in his time share was a tradition for us and this year, we are dedicating this trip to him. ❤

Below are some of my weekend getaway necessities and some pics from Newport over the past couple trips! I recommend lots of sunscreen to keep that beautiful skin protected, a cross body bag so you can have your hands free while you stroll the area, and of course, very comfortable, cute sandals!
