Ready, Set, #GetPacking!


travel essentials

It’s that time of year again – we’re stuffing away our cold-weather gear and replacing our winter grays with super-sweet pastels. Not only are the muted hues SO on-trend, they’re also a lot more fun to wear. Oh, yeah, AND they remind us of cotton candy(…and sorbet and ice cream and spring flowers. We could go on forever!)

The suspense is killing us! We can’t wait to slip our freshly pedicured toes into some mint green cork wedges this spring. Can you?!

Not only is Spring (the season and the break) and its oh-so-cute trends headed our way but ALL of the cool stuff that come AFTER finals. We’re talking about SUMMER, duh!! The three months when we forget about the rotten scores we got on our midterms and wash away the college blues with ADVENTURE.

Road trips to nowhere with our best gal pals, late night sunsets, music festivals galore, bike rides through the park, sand in our toes and wind in our hair. We can hear the beaches calling our name already…

For the next 12 weeks we’re plotting our summer getaways and we hope you’ll join us. Every week we’ll be packing our bags and traveling to a new destination with Contiki, the worldwide leader in travel tours for 18-35 year olds. Each destination means a whole new wardrobe fit for the locale. On our journey you’ll be able to get tips from top fashion bloggers on beauty and style and sneak a peek at their travel essentials. The best part – we’ll be giving away some sweet prizes that will help make YOUR summer trip even more exciting. Who doesn’t need a new weekend bag?! Um, exactly.
