Time to Relax

{Wearing: RW&Co Blouse, H&M Skirt, Club Monaco Belt, Zara Pumps, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag, Fossil Multifunction Watch, MonikaLove Flora Bracelet c/o}

I know that complaining about going on a vacation would literally make me evil, but am I the only one who finds the before and after of a week away super stressful? Trying to get everything set up at work and tying up loose ends? I probably create more stress for myself than needed which also doesn't help the situation. I'll just have to go against my worrier/stress case natural instincts and try to relax while I'm away. And trust me, I really need some relaxation and de-stressing.


  1. Lovely outfit, I really love the skirt! Very pretty!

  2. Don't worry I always stress before a vacation too! Cute outfit :)



  3. I think the weeks before and after a vacation is super stressful, too! You look beautiful!

  4. I totally understand what you mean: do more work before, answer all the unanswered emails and do all the stuff that piled up after coming back - at least there are some days of vacation in between ;-) and I love your blouse!!!

  5. Awesome outfit! And I understand. Sometimes vacations just need to be extremely random so you don't stress out before-hand.

  8. Such pretty colours! Love that skirt so much-

  9. Yes I agree, getting ready to go away (including packing!) can be super stressful! The trick is to be able to switch off completely as soon as you are gone, so you can really enjoy the break :)

  10. Oh you look SO pretty! Love that red skirt, and that white lacy blouse is gorgeous with it. Totally agree - I get super stressed the week before vacay - but just keep remembering all the R&R you will have when you get there :)

  11. Oooh, how I love this look - that red skirt & pretty blouse were made for one another... and enjoy your vacation Melissa, how fun! xo

  12. Such a pretty feminine outfit. I love the red skirt!

  13. I love the blouse! But I'm a little confused.. in your description you mentioned both an RW&Co and a Club Monaco blouse. Where is it from?

    1. haha sorry, it's a club monaco belt. The blouse is RW&Co. Can you tell I was in vacation mode?

  14. Oh. My. Good. Gosh.
    I am OBSESSED with your style. Flawless! Honestly. Your style is the favorite of most of the bloggers I've found so far!
    I'm a new blog, but gosh, ahhh I just can't get over how great your style is! Go you!
