Watch out mumu the Turkish towel dress is my new go to piece for poolside getaways

***Sorry, I had to share this immediately tonight in my hotel room:)

Ok, I'm addicted to turkish towels!!!  I have turkish towels and use as a towel, love for drying my curly hair, use it as a beach towel and blanket:). Still working on using it as a scarf or wrap:). But, I make sure I use my towel in all ways:). 

Recently, I found out that there was such thing as a hooded Turkish robe and jumped on that for India.  Perfect for drying quickly and not getting too hot in warm climates like India:)

But, today in San Diego when I decided to check out this surfer shop (Island Surf, 619-435-1527) I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this Turkish towel dress!  Pure brilliance!  It's by a company called, Primitive.  I loved the style with pockets...but, there is also one without.  This just seems like a fun summer dress, resort wear or pool side cover-up:). I'll be using it for everything!:)

Zara shows how to rock a dress with flats that look like Birks

Tons of travel essentials from J. Crew

I love J. CREW!  Every month I have to have the catalog and anytime I see a store I have to go in and be inspired by the styling of the displays, of course the new clothes, check out the sale section and see what fun little things they have in the extras and accessories section.

Since I'm moving to India soon I have travel essentials on the mind:). Here are a few items I saw in store that I think make travel a little, ok a lot more fun and fancy:

The fashionable way to stay organized: 

Keep the passport pretty:

I'm going back for this!  I've been wanting a rose gold hair tie bad:). They also had rose gold Bobbie pins.  These are perfect for red eyes when the hair needs to to up:)

I already love my electronics and can't say not to making them even more fab with accessories like these:

A few things I picked up in Portland and how I'm going to style them

Styling my new purchases

On my trips to Portland I usually try to visit as many vintage shops as possible.  This trip the hubby came with a focus for purchasing his necessities for his new job in India.  So we decided to take advantage of the cool stores and no tax!  I was excited to find that the City Target in downtown Portland had all of the items fully stocked for the Peter Pilotto line so I picked up a pair of shoes and sunnies.  Then, the hubby bought a suit at J. Crew and I was checking out the sale section and found this tunic that will pair fabulously with my new shoes.  Plus, will be soo cute in India:)  Didn't buy a lot in Portland, but got some cut pieces:)  Now, to get the Mar Y Sol bag:)

Styling my new purchases

I want this, but I guess I will get this

Free People, Leia Jumpsuit $128

Styling inspo from Conde Nast Traveler Magazine

Looks might not be exact; but, I love taking inspo from everywhere.  Here it's as simple as mixing prints like I had seen in a mag I don't usually read.  Where do you find your inspo?
