It’s All in The Bag! (Tips & …


My Go To Travel Accessory + Tips!

We’ve been doing a bit of traveling recently, and I have started to seriously master the art of packing. Don’t get me wrong, I still over pack… but I have been getting a lot better about it (read this post for more!). Although my packing skill may still need a little work, my cosmetic situation is completely and utterly under control.

We are spending this week at my family’s cabin in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Including some extended family, There are like 17 of us in one cabin, so it is both chaos and so much fun!

Get It Together: Packing Tips & Tricks!


Tomorrow Ryan and I are headed to Aruba for the weekend, and we are so excited that we can’t stand it! So I thought it would be fun to share this post I recently did for Style Me Pretty Living on my 5 tips on packing for a weekend getaway! 

Travel With ABD – Link Love!




On Sunday we are headed back up to our favorite place, New York City! We have a ton of meetings and work things to attend while we are there, so in efforts to make packing for this trip a bit easier, I am trying to stick to one color theme, neutrals!

I am the QUEEN of over packing and not packing anything that I actually need. Just lots of random things. No lie, a few summers ago we went to our family’s cabin in Georgia and I brought 4 pairs of pajamas and one pair of jeans and a ton of shoes… what was I thinking?! I literally had to wear pajama shirts as actual shirts. My family still won’t let me live it down. Ever since then I have tried to make an effort to be a better/more efficient packer, but every single time I get nervous and just throw in shoes… like that will help!

Anyway, for this trip, I’ve gotten a bit on top of my game! Below are a few things I’ve picked up for this trip… fingers crossed I get it right this time!
