photo-285 Wedding, you say? What wedding? Please, I’ve moved on to Honeymoon. In just a few weeks, Peter and I will be heading to Italy and Greece for a two week  carb-tastic, black-sanded, three coins in the fountain type adventure. Thanks to guidance from Katie Frederick of Ever After Honeymoons, we’ll start our trip on the Amalfi Coast, then Rome, then to the island of Santorini, where ultimately I will explode from 12 days of pasta, pizza, and wine (all at breakfast)….  I mean, when I tell you that I am planning our entire trip based on food and when/where we’ll eat, this is no joke. But while I’m not obsessing over Rome’s must have pizza or which tavern on Ammoudi beach will catch an octopus and bring it to our table (And art? And history? Oh, yeah. Yep. That too), I’m stalking Olivia Palermo’s Piperlime’s picks for some inspiration on summer looks. (In my opinion, Olivia Palermo is to style as Katie Parla is to Rome. They say, I listen).

But before we set sail for Cacio e Pepe wonderland, I am excited to say that we’re taking Jonah on a little family getaway to Palm Springs for Memorial Day Weekend. Not only are we using Starwood Points (anyone else like to pretend you get those for free?), but turns out two of my favorite (and crazy talented) friends, Goli of GRockLA and Jenn Feldman of Jenn Feldman Designs, will be there with their families too. Cocktails by the pool, anyone?

Below is a collection of what I’m packing and (if I’m being honest), completely coveting. (Cynthia Vincent maxi, I’m looking at you). White and denim cutoffs, a cute cover up, a great floppy hat and sunnies, striped tee, a sweet cami, and a couple of dresses… I’m ready to go! A lot of this can mix and match like the cami and tee with the shorts… Stay tuned for the honeymoon packing list. And based on our culinary-centric itinerary, expect to see A LOT of drawstring…

What are your weekend getaway must haves? Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
