This post is sponsored by Nordstrom Hi friends! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. Here we are starting ever so slowly to feel spring’s arrival, and it cannot come a moment too soon. I am already dreaming about more time spent outdoors, fresh flowers, bright green grass, ahhhhhh sounds good! I also think about weekend getaways and a few upcoming trips we have planned through the summer. Nothing quite like a vacation to recharge your batteries and with our fast paced world….we all need that. When I think of going on vacation, my first thought is what is going into my suitcase. I consider myself a very good and efficient packer (even friends I have traveled with have commented on this). I have learned tips through the years and if you can believe it- actually look forward to packing. For many, it’s a dreaded “must do” with regard to trip planning. I have learned the virtues of rolling most of my clothes, using tissue, putting rolled clothes in handbags/totes so they don’t take up extra space. And of course picking clothes wisely, choosing things that will not require an iron upon arrival! Though I understand sometimes that cannot be helped. So in case warm weather travel is in your future, this Which would you choose is centered around stylish but effortless vacation dressing. I went to Nordstrom whose selection of clothing and shoes is hard to rival. Plus I know I am always getting fair prices and the easiest/no stress return policy. Hope you enjoy! Now whether you are really going on a trip or the virtual variety……time to choose your three faves- ____________________________________________________ CHOICE 1 Own these and adore them, these scream chic and effortless vacation dressing.
