Happy Monday, everyone! Well, this weekend was a sad time for us. Friday, my son, daughter in law, and the grandkids pulled out of our driveway to move to Ohio. We lost it, and we cried all day every time we thought about it. I do feel like an arm has been cut off, but I know they have their path and moving to Columbus is it right now. My fingers are crossed that they will eventually come back to Dallas, but for now, I have to cut the cord! Why is it so hard? Today, it’s all about easy travel dresses.
Headed to Newport this week
We are headed out of town later this week, and I am going to attempt to carry-on my suitcase. We are headed to Newport, Rhode Island and thankfully, it looks like this past weekends heatwave will have moved out. My husband is playing in a golf tournament, and we have three nights of events, one casual and two cocktail parties. I am taking this outfit for one night and a black dress that I’ve had for a while for the other.
Packing for the daytime seems harder for me because I am not exactly sure what we will be doing. One day maybe at a friend’s house by the pool, one day could be shopping around, or touring some of the mansions. This is when I panic about what to take. Of course, the bathing suit goes, but I am taking some cute throw on dresses that I can add a jacket or sweater too.
Easy Travel Dresses For Travel
The dress I have on is so cute and has an adorable fit (running low in sizes). I love the camo print, but it comes in so many other colors (lots of sizes). I change in the car when I shoot for the blog, so I had on nipple covers and didn’t put a bra on, but I will wear one of my Coobies bras in a fun color like this when I wear the dress. I threw on my favorite sneakers and added a jacket I already had and think this is a great sightseeing or shopping look (plus folds up to nothing). I am including some other easy travel/packing dresses below.
We visited Newport a few years ago, but I am sure we didn’t get to see or do everything. Have any of you been? What would you recommend we do? Would love to hear your favorite activities, restaurants, or shops!
My best friend from Birmingham came in yesterday and spent the night last night. I only get one night and day with her, which is definitely not long enough. We had a fun night last night with another long-time friend of mine that was in town. I love it when the people closest to me in different parts of the country get to meet each other!
I hope you all have a great Monday! xx
