I’ve got a keen case of wanderlust this morning.  All I can think about is jumping on a plane with Mr. Magpie to somewhere warm and exotic and feeling a lovely distance from my little life here.  This print from Etsy storefront Vaporqualquer ($15) pretty much says it all:

To outfit this dream excursion, I’ve of course imaginatively lassoed together a range of global-leaning separates.

I love this asymmetrical dress (Myne, on sale for $138, Thistle & Clover) with a wood bead necklace ($85, Max & Chloe):


By day, I’d wear these with white t-straps ($59, Repertoire) for comfortable exploring, and would carry all of my essentials in the classic Chloe Marcie ($1,895, Net-A-Porter):


Or — how about this eye-catching statement necklace ($96, Bellissima Jewelry) with a coral tee ($29, J. Crew) and some mint skinnies ($88, Shopbop), finished with straight-forward, unfussy leather sandals ($105, Must Haves):


I’d finish with the J. Crew Tillary ($328, J. Crew) – – OMG.  OBSESSED.  Doesn’t it remind you ever-so-much of the Celine Boston I’ve been drooling over for centuries?!

Accent with a bold, gauzy scarf ($125, Roberta Roller Rabbit):


Another daytime favorite?  A blousy tunic top ($124, Pink Chicken), which I’d pair with colored denim shorts (yep, you heard me — jorts. — J. Brand, on sale for $111, Shopbop) and some classic aviators ($90, Alex and Alexa):



Slip on some simple t-straps ($65, Zappos) —

A simple, foldable ($98, Bloomingdale’s) carry-all makes a welcome addition to the packing list — I stow a few of these in my luggage just in case I make some purchases…

Keep track of your travels in a sleek travel journal ($60, Smythson):

Or, how about this eye-catching necklace ($425, Cynthia Desser), worn with a simple cotton dress ($115, Weekday)?


I’d finish with those funky Rupert Sanderson ankle breakers ($875, MyTheresa) and this fringed clutch (so fun — $53, ASOS) for a night out on the town:


Or, how about a simple, boxy voile top ($265, My Wardrobe) with a pair of BRIGHT shorts ($49, J. Crew) and this amazing statement necklace, made of scarves (! — $495, Sight Unseen):


Perfect with  a metallic-flecked espadrille ($208, Mymu) —

— and a printed scarf (on sale for $97, Virginia Johnson):



And you can’t go wrong with packing a few other tribal-inspired necklaces, like this one from Marisa Haskell ($170), and an extra pair of wedges (these Tory Burches are perfection — $195, Shopbop):


So — anyone else got the travel bug?!


  1. I just received my Julie Elizabeth earrings in the mail – they are gorgeous! Wearing them tomorrow. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
