Jordan & Israel

I just wanted to share some more photos from my trip to Jordan & Israel. I am fortunate enough to travel each year with my family across the globe for the holidays. This year we decided to visit the Middle East! We landed in Amman, Jordan and I was eager to see what sites we would see, the history we would learn about and the culture that we would dive into. This trip was unlike any of my previous vacations because there was so many action packed days, from climbing mountains to 10 mile walks it was truly worth it. We did everything from see the ruins in Petra to the breathtaking desert in Wadi Rum (where Laurence of Arabia was filmed!) and camel riding to floating in the Dead Sea.

Then our travels took us to Israel which was an experience that pained me to see. We first went to Bethlehem on the Palestine side, which was truly an emotional experience. To see so many people in harsh conditions, surrounded by huge walls and complete imprisonment disheartened me. To live in a world where you do not get to see the terror some people live with each day is horrific. Then we went to Jerusalem where it was completely a 180 from Bethlehem. It was clean, beautiful city much like the ones we see in the US. Experiencing these trips has opened my eyes, though seeing some of it was sad, there was also so much history and beautiful architecture in the other cities.

Day 11: Czech Me Out

The weather wasn’t so great today when we went out but that’s no excuse to stay in or not dress up! Every day is getting a bit cooler which only means Fall is right around the corner (which I’m definitely not ready for). But why not take advantage of both seasons. As I shopped from store to store, I had to stop at one of my all time favorite stores, Zara! Each Zara was different from country to country however they all carried consistent, effortless and chic clothing. I found this amazing Olive green hat and just love the color, definitely going to be a fall favorite for me. I also got this beautiful tan,ruffle skirt. Both pieces can be worn as transition pieces into fall because they can be layered for fall or simply be worn during the summer. I just love the combination of these colors together, it’s simply elegant.

For dinner I kept the same simple look. I paired a mustard skirt,white crop and a neutral shawl to accent my booties.

I wasn’t planning at all to match my brother but I guess great minds think alike! (He’s wearing Polo pull over, Yellow JCrew pants, and brown leather shoes that he got in Montreux, Switzerland)

Day 10: Czech

Welcome to Prague! I was so excited about today’s activities because they were quite relaxing. We got to walk the “Old Prague” as they call it, it was everything I imagined. From the red tiled roofs to the mile long views, I was mesmerized.

I opted for a clean look today pairing white cropped jeans with a zara top. It was a bit chilly this morning so I added my Ferragamo leather jacket and camel Chanel flats. I just love pairing neutral tones together, especially in a gorgeous European setting!
