Friends! Nordstrom started their Half-Yearly Sale today and it runs through June 4th! During the sale, you can take up to 40% off on purchases across all categories. We’re using this sale to stock up on travel essentials for our upcoming summer trips to San Francisco, Napa, Savannah, Palmetto Bluff, Austin, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque.
Doesn’t this off the shoulder top have serious vacation vibes and at only $32 that’s a major deal! This striped top has us dreaming of Paris and for a BBQ or summer picnic we love this white blouse with sweet button details on the back.

Comfort is key! When traveling, it’s important to be comfortable and we’re excited to share some of our travel tips with you along with the brands and shopping destinations we’ve come to love.
When choosing our travel outfits, we usually opt for a pretty blouse (seriously cannot resist a pretty peasant top!), soft jeans (Hudson Jeans are our favorite), comfortable, stylish flats, and classic accessories!
SHOP DESIGN LOVEFEST’S TRAVEL ESSENTIALS
We’re always sporting watches on the regular and we love this rose gold Michael Kors timepiece for its chic, classic look that goes with everything. We paired it with this simple Michael Kors bracelet (similar) to give it some more pizzaz! We also are LOVING this tech enabled display smartwatch from Michael Kors too!
Comfortable shoes are an absolute MUST when traveling and we always get compliments on these fun Jack Rogers flats. These gold lace-up espadrille flats from the LOFT are also a great travel option. Speaking of comfortable shoes, I wore these Tory Burch flats (they are worth every penny – so comfortable) almost everyday on my honeymoon in Cabo (blog post coming soon!).
Also, we’ve had a lot of people ask us what camera we use and how we edit our pictures. For editing we’re big fans of Lightroom and we’re loving all of Stephanie Drenka‘s Lightroom presets! She’s incredibly talented and is now selling her gorgeous Lightroom presets here!

FALL TRAVEL STAPLES
Emily & Barbara
As we were dreaming about all of the trips we want to take this summer, we thought you all might like to know some of our tips and tricks when it comes to packing and staying organized while traveling. As many of you are probably gearing up to embark on fun adventures this summer, these packing tips will come in handy and help take some of the stress out of the packing process.
We personally know the frustration of both over-packing and under-packing when on vacation and the stress that can set in when you wait until the last minute to pack and then realize you forgot an item that you desperately wanted to bring. These negative packing experiences inspired us to rethink our packing process and to share a few tips with you in hopes that you might avoid our packing pitfalls.
Review the infographic below for awesome packing tips that will streamline your packing process.
In addition to the tips above, the following are a few of our essential tips when deciding what to pack and how to pack it:
- Pack neutral clothing pieces that can be easily mixed and matched for multiple outfit options.
- Bring a good pair of jeans – jeans can be re-worn multiple times before needing to be washed and are such a staple.
- Rolling clothing items in your suitcase keeps them from getting as wrinkled.
- Pack outfits that you’re comfortable in – the last thing you want to be on vacation is uncomfortable!
- Always pack an extra outfit in your carry-on, just in case your bag gets lost in route to your destination.
- Pack essential cosmetics and toiletries in your carry-on to stay fresh on the plane and in case your luggage gets lost – we always bring Evian Mineral Water Spray to keep our faces hydrated while in-flight.
