Nudes and longer hemlines, that’s where I want to be right now. Mango’s look book is right up my alley, and the bags are little works of art. I can’t believe how quickly I’ve gotten busy this year – I’m ready for a break already! My New York trip is only a few weeks away now and I couldn’t be more excited to get away for a bit. It’ll be my first time out of the country (can you believe that?!), so I’m quite excited. Look forward to a peek into my travel itinerary soon!
