Pack Rat

I am extremely sorry, but I have to take this week off from blogging as I pack up my life and drive it cross country starting next Monday. The Inspiration Files will then become a travel blog of sorts chronicling my journey out on the open road. Thanks for understanding while I sort things out...

Lounge Act

I have really tried to keep posting regularly, but with all my packing and tying up loose ends I have little to no time for anything! Packing and organizing only makes me to want to lounge around- which is exactly what I should NOT be doing! So when I see beautiful printed lounge chairs like these {and they are reversible}, I dream about being all moved- and unpacked- and finally able to relax.

After years of tossing around the idea of living in California, I have finally put my foot down and am moving there in 2 weeks! My cousin in getting married in San Diego August 12th and I have decided to stay there after- most likely in the Bay Area. I am so excited, but I am sure I will have a few freak out attacks in the near future. The best part is I am driving cross country starting August 1st!

Metallic Mondays

Sorry for my recent spotty absences. I vow to try and post as frequently as possible. Summer has me in a bit of a whirlwind, as of late- I do have some exciting news that I will soon share. In the meantime, here are some sequin satchels that will brighten up your Monday!

Shell Story

Today, after the umpteenth compliment on my coordinates necklace from Rockabella Jewels, I decided to check out their online shop to see if anything new had appeared- and it has! I can't begin to explain how excited I am for these gold shell elastic bracelets {which double as hair ties}. I am ordering some up this week because they are an unbelievable steal!

Wearable Wednesday: Blue & Purple

There is something undeniably sharp and crisp about a dark blue & purple color combination- it is serious, yet fun at the same time. Hey, even the Wimbledon ball crew was just seen sporting the lovely duo...

Weekend in Review

I am having a mighty hard time getting back into the swing of things {workwise} after an action packed weekend that included BBQ's, skateboard sessions, and stand up paddle boarding across the Great South Bay to the Atlantic ocean. Here is a small recap of the weekend...

Feeling Patriotic

Isn't the 4th of July the best holiday? What more do you need to celebrate independence than beachy days, BBQ nights, stars, stripes, and fireworks? I am heading out early to kick off the weekend, but I am wishing everyone the most festive of weekends. See you back here Tuesday!

The Weekender

I own my fair share of weekender bags. Possibly because I am usually off traveling somewhere EVERY weekend. I especially love classic canvas styles with leather details. I feel that these are the pieces that will hold up, and wear well over time. What better a weekend to share travel bags than this upcoming three day weekend? Are you traveling anywhere fun on this 4th of July trio?
