Black and Blue


When I’m doing a quick overnight trip I like to keep my accessories as basic as possible, especially when it’s a beach trip and I’m already bringing a car full of gear.  For my trip to Coastal Maine, I stuck with a black and rose gold theme, which added the perfect amount of contrast to both this solid blue dress and the shorts and tee I wore there.  This amazing reversible faux leather tote is one of the best purchases I’ve made this year.  It has accompanied me on all of my weekend trips and is also great for long days when I need to carry a lot around with me.  I love the black/cognac combination since it goes with everything, but lately I’ve been eyeing some of the other pretty colors, too!  Black sandals are my other travel must have, and they usually are the only pair I bring with me on a trip. Having a cute, comfortable, and versatile option opens up more room in my suitcase for sneakers (or snacks, depending on where your priorities lie).
