Happy Hump Day, lovelies!
This has been one of those crazy weeks where it feels like I've fit an entire month into just a couple of days. I'm leaving for Spain with the boothang tomorrow (AH!), and I feel like I've been running around like a lunatic trying to get everything I need to do done before I go! I realize this isn't a bad problem to have, but it's been a bit hectic and I'm very much looking forward to the moment where I can sit on the plane (most definitely with a glass of wine) and relax.
I've been to Europe a few times, but I've never been to Spain and I couldn't be more excited! I'm the type of person who always needs a plan and has to know what is going to happen next, so an unpredictable two week adventure, in a foreign place I've never been to, is good for my soul.
No matter the itinerary that's set, there is so much about a city you don't know until you're there: the soul of the people, the energy in the air, the taste of the food, the thing that's going to take your breath away, the street you're going to get lost on, and the intersection you're going to find yourself. For me, that's been a big part of what traveling is about. Regardless of how much I might know myself before I go, there's always a piece of myself I discover while I'm away. It's like these foreign cities are holding a part of me that I didn't know existed, and as the noise and responsibilities of my every day life fades away, the more I come alive.
If you've traveled before, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't gone, GO. I know it can be expensive, but as they say, travel is the one thing you can spend your money on that will always make you richer. You might make a dent in your wallet for the short-term, but you will have experiences and memories to last a lifetime. So do yourself the favor, and go have an adventure.
For my outfit inspiration this week, I styled a daytime look for some summer vacation sightseeing, or if you're staying local, for a brunch or picnic with friends. These gladiator sandals have been all the rage this spring/summer and I have to say I can't get enough of them. They might not be the most appropriate walking shoes for a day full of touring, but you better believe they're packed in my suitcase!
Life is short, and the world is big. Have an adventure.
