Friday's Fancies: Eurotrip

I'm back!

Getting my act together for Friday's Fancies has been a difficult one, but I finally got back on track!

Obviously, it's sooo difficult to get me to imagine what in the world I would wear on a trip to Europe. I only wish I could be back there right now!

scarf/satchel/fedora sold out! 

Fedora: I'm a huge fan of hats! I bought a very similar one a few years back at American Eagle before going on Spring Break and it is still one of my favorite hats to wear! It covers up a bad hair day, keeps you cool, and is just very cute!

Shirt: Okay, I absolutely am obsessed with this T and want it in every single color. Including leopard print, which lucky me, is an option on Alloy's website. I die.

Skirt: Major fan of the hi-lo trend! In case you're new, last summer I studied abroad in Spain, and prior to studying I spent a week traveling with my {boyfriend at the time} through Rome and Barcelona. It was so bloody hot that most of the time was spent wearing sundresses and/or shorts, however, when visiting the Vatican you are required to have shoulders ands knees covered {despite the fact that you would be surprised to see how many people get away with not following that rule...}. Anyhow, we both wore pants which was completely necessary but utterly uncomfortable, especially considering the heat and all of the insane walking we did! This skirt gives a little relief from the heat... and oxygen! {BONUS: it comes in a pale blue as well. I want both!}

Scarf: I wrote something similar a few Friday's Fancies' back, so I know this isn't super original to this blog, but it's a tip and trick I use over and over again. {In, fact, I'll be employing it on Wednesday when I go visit family!} Years back, one of the many magazines I indulge in monthly/weekly/etc did their "final look" on travel tips. One such tip was to include a pashmina or scarf that was big enough to double as a blanket on a plane, since they become freezing! Obvs, when prancing around Europe in the summer, you don't need one that big or thick, but it's great for traveling, and frequently temps are much cooler in the morning and at night, so if you're doing quite a lot of traveling, having something light that can be rolled up and fit in your bag {if it gets too hot} or worn ever-so-chicly as part of your outfit doesn't hurt! Not to mention, I'm fairly positive that Europeans are immune to heat and they wear harem  pants and scarves like it's their job. So, if you're looking to look less "OH HEY OVER HERE I'M AMERICAN",  scarves are your friends!

Satchel: Let's be honest, it's just pretty! I would probably bring something bigger in reality that could hold my DSLR.

Watch: Again, so pretty. It's on my wish list for sure. I have a slightly less fab version that I wear all the time to keep me punctual!

Sandals: The slight wedge is cute enough without being painful or in danger of causing broken ankles (did that. not fun!)

What would you bring??

For the sake of nostalgia, this was where I was this time last year!

Granada, Spain

Ciudad de Futbol, Madrid, Spain

¡Feliz fin de la semana!
