As previously mentioned, this past weekend was spent in the Hamptons with girlfriends for a much needed escape from the city and in celebration of Memorial Day. The days were spent by the pool, sipping Skinny Girl margaritas (they are so yummy!) and mimosas, soaking up the sunshine and plenty of storytelling. The nights were filled with yummy seafood, ice cream, cocktails, darts and dancing. Sag Harbor is a darling town where I wish I could spend all my summer weekends.

p.s. check out Blair’s look with this same Zara skirt. It’s one of my favorite’s of hers!

hope you all had fabulous long weekends! xoxo

w&w gift guide 2010: 06: Belle’s Picks

If you’re a WIT & Whimsy regular reader you know that I travel. A LOT. Outfit posts in the last month alone have recently shown my state-hopping in Illinois, New York and Texas. So when I asked the super stylish, oh-so-witty and truly wonderful Belle of Capitol Hill Style to select her picks for a gift guide all her own to be showcased here on WIT & Whimsy, I loved that it was travel related. But let’s be real, what don’t we love of Capitol Hill Style’s? Seriously, one of the best blogs ever.

So let’s get to it (and don’t forget to check out all the 2010 Gift Guides to finish out that wonderful shopping list of yours for all your loved ones!)

  1. Nordstrom ‘Eyelash’ Cashmere wrap, $95
  2. Rebecca Minkoff Passport Case, $98
  3. Louis Vuitton City Guides, $34
  4. Flip Video HD, $149.99
  5. Bliss Lemon & Sage Spa Set, $25
  6. Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan ‘Air Bacara’ Flat, $138
  7. Ray Ban Wayfarers, $145 (comme moi!)

“Despite living in Washington, D.C. within close proximity to two international airports, I’ve never traveled out of the country.  In fact, I’ve never even been outside of the lower 48 states.  But next year, that’s all going to change.  I don’t know when, I don’t know how, but in 2011, I am going somewhere awesome.

And this gift guide is full of items that I’m going to need for my first overseas trip. If any of you experienced travelers have tips and tricks that you’d love to share with this Carmen San Diego gumshoe (hello, children of the 90s, I loved that game too!), feel free to leave them in the comments.  Happy Holidays and Godspeed.” – Belle

2010 has been a year of non-stop travel for me it feels like. I’ve been to New York more times than I can count, Las Vegas, Chicago and LA multiple times each, Mexico, Toronto, Washington DC, Lake Tahoe, Denver, Seattle and will be in Dallas tomorrow. Racking up the miles has made me think of all things I love having at hand when bouncing from airport to airport and those things I’m quite sure I would make excellent use of that I don’t already have.

So whether it’s Benefit’s Eye Bright that’s a godsend for early mornings after long flights, my go-to Ray Bans or items to make the trip a bit more stylish like Rebecca Minkoff’s iPad case or Marc by Marc’s funky retro headphones, any of these items are sure to make that girl you know who’s always flying high in the skies one happy, traveling trooper. (Seriously, take it from one who knows it :))

For more travel tips, be sure to check out some of the things I swear by when it comes to making it as painless as possible.
