Happy weekend. Today is my dad’s birthday; we have a fun dinner planned for him tonight and then I fly to Venice tomorrow afternoon. I could not be more excited about this trip. It’s been a while since I’ve traveled somewhere brand new to me. I am so excited for exploring, apéritif culture, and spending time in a city I’ve always dreamed of visiting. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it is fab!

I couldn’t afford most of the clothes you wore this week so beautifully, but the Viori pants are my fave. Got one a purple gray and treated myself to a Dorsey necklace 17 inches because I had no one left here to buy it for me . So I bought it for myself. Wow I then got the huge guilt attacks . I guess it wore off because I got the joggers afterwards today . That 2 am retail therapy shopping has to stop. You just look too cute Have a wonderful trip! ❤️
Thank you Lynn. I hope you have a good weekend.
I loved this list! Portland OR for travel solo, the ll bean tote for vogue essentials, and “how much time do you have?” for kids. thanks Grace xx Molly
I’m so glad! Thanks for letting me know!
Very exciting about Venice. Had you been to Belize before? Only I thought that destination was new to you too.
Good catch. I guess a better way to phrase it was it’s been a long time since I explored a brand new city. We didn’t really do much in Belize. 🙂
