Today’s fun highlights:

  • Or more like, Happy St. Palm-trick’s Day….okay, I’ll see myself out.
  • Just sporting a little green over here for St. Patrick’s Day. No pinches here. This palm leaf print tee must have been an end-of-season summer sales find last year (that I don’t remember buying…haha), and I found it in my closet when I was trying to pack for Texas. Good find, past-me…good find.
  • Which also means, I probably need to make time to do another closet cleanout. #whoops
  • But not this weekend, because we’re jammed pack with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration tonight and birthday celebrations on The Husband’s side this weekend. Ready, set, party is my motto this weekend!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

London Travel Diary

merona utility jacket + black and white stripe tee + loft jeans + vintage coach purse | Style On Target blog

Our first stop on this year’s Europe tour was London, mainly because the flights from the US to London was super affordable, but also because our beloved Colts were playing their first overseas football game.

They happened to lose (super sad), but we still were able to enjoy two days in one of my favorite cities! Two days seems a lot longer before you start to factor in jet lag and airport waiting time, but we still managed to see and do a lot!

Top Eight Things to Do in London (in the order we did them):

  1. Take In an NFL Game at Wembley Stadium – Okay, only if you are really, really obsessed with your team. It was a great experience to watch a super American sport in a foreign country. They don’t just wear jerseys of the two teams that are playing…they wear ALL the NFL jerseys ever. I even got an opportunity to explain one of the rules to some Londoners. Just another day of educating the world ;).
  2. Walk Along the Thames – There is really no better way to see London. There are endless sights to see in this historic city, so slip on some sneakers and pound that pavement. My favorite area to walk in London? Right along the river Thames, where you can see the London Eye, Big Ben, and all those bridges!
  3. Say Hi to Big Ben – My favorite landmark to see in London. And I never get sick of looking at it (I studied abroad in London and have been back two times since)! It just is so iconic and a part of a very important building (the Parliament Building). Fun fact, the name Big Ben refers to the large bell in the tower…which is actually called Elizabeth Tower (yes, after the queen).
  4. Pretend You Live in Buckingham Palace – 775 rooms? It’ll do, I suppose. ;)
  5. Visit One of the Top Museums – The Husband only got the chance to go to the British Museum (home of the Rosetta Stone) and some of the art museums the last time we were in London. So this go-around, we made some time to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum (which is honestly the BEST museum in London, in my opinion). The museum has 2.3 million objects in their permanent collection, and while you can’t possibly see them all, you can pick and choose what topics interest you (fashion and jewelry for me). And did I mention admission is COMPLETELY free?
  6. Ride the Tube – While walking might be the best way to see London, riding the Tube is a must! It’s so easy to figure out, and there are so many stops that you can really get anywhere in the city quite quickly. Just be sure to “mind the gap.” ;)
  7. Have a Drink in a Pub – Pick a pub, any pub! They’re all over, and sometimes, they have the best names! We happened to have a hotel right next to pub called The Fox and Anchor, so of course, I had to con The Husband to have lunch and a pint there. Win, win.
  8. Dine on Fish and Chips – Because while the food may be a little bland in London, at least it is iconic!

Our next stop (which probably won’t be posted until next week) was Lisbon! It was our first time in Portugal, so naturally, I have lots of photos to go through (#allofthetile!).

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You can’t really beat a classic combo of stripes, jeans, and a utility jacket, so that’s why I didn’t fight it…I just wore it!
  • Scallop flats for the win…thank you Sam & Libby for making the best shoes EVER.
  • Today is our last full day in Europe, and it is crazy to me that it is almost over! We’ve had a blast, and I realize how lucky I am to be able to take this long of a trip and spend that much time with The Husband!
  • I do miss The Puppy though (and my own bed and hair dryer), so I can’t wait to get home to him!

Weekend sales:

  • None this week because we’re still traveling (I can tell you all about the deals in Lisbon, though)! They’ll be back in two weeks!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know the Little Black Dress, but have you seen how dedicated I have been to this Little Green Jacket. So versatile and a great color for everyone!
  • And pockets, folks. Pockets galore.
  • These scallop ballet flats are so good that I couldn’t have just one color, so the beige pair beat out the black!
  • How many of you watch The Case of JonBenet Ramsey this week? They kept showing previews of it during all the football games I was watching, so I watched it…and was suckered in like the sucker that I am. I get a bit obsessive over news stories and then have to read EVERYTHING about them…so this was great for me, since it was nicely packaged into two shows. If you missed it, you can check it out here on CBS.com!
  • This is probably the most actual TV I’ve watched in a LONG time (minus football games), but this is too good not to share. I had seen the trailer all summer for the show This Is Us and was instantly hooked by what seemed like a great bunch of stories. Watch it guys, WATCH. IT. So good, so heartfelt/real, and so emotional (I cried during a part). Again, if you missed it, you can check it out here on NBC.com (Mom, watch it!)!
  • This weekend we’re going to a friend’s birthday bonfire, watching football, and prepping/packing for our trip to Europe that starts next weekend! Cannnnnn’t wait!
