Voyagez Avec Olivia


Morning, lovelies! So happy that Thursday is here. I'm just about ready to kick off the weekend. It's been one of those weeks with too much work and not enough sleep so I'm really looking forward to some rest and relaxation. But I know I have another day or two to go so I won't get too carried away yet...

I came across this little peak into Olivia Palermo's recent trip to Paris on Vogue and my mind instantly started drifting off into fantasy land. Could I be anymore envious of her? Not only does this girl have the most impeccable taste, but she also gets to traipse her oh so chic self around Europe with her Ken doll boyfriend Johannes Heubl and to-die for wardrobe. Could you even imagine? I think I need to start requesting a garment rack when checking into hotels to make myself feel a little more fabulous.

Here's what she brought along as her travel essentials (from Vogue):

What I packed:

  • Jet Set ballet pumps keep me quick on my toes - and they're ideal for cycling in, too.
  • Nancy Gonzalez passport cover, from http://www.gift-library.com/.
  • Kif If cardies - I can't leave the house without them! I always have at least one in my bag; they conveniently scrunch down to nothing.
  • Bensoni dress - it's one of my favorite summer dresses. The pattern is divine, and I love the effortlessly chic cut.
  • My Valentino couture clutches for instant dress-up.
  • My iPad.
  • Finally, I can't leave without Johannes! {Awh how cute! Actually sounds like something I would say about J so I won't mock :)}
Valentino clutches??? Nice life, right? Next time around I'm going to come back as Olivia :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day! Only one more day till Friday!

And remember you still have time to enter the Perricone MD Cold Plasma giveaway!

Thank you for reminding me, Dawn... I MUST NOT forget my Valentino clutches when I leave; nor my gorgeous Ken doll! Beautiful pictures, make me want to jump over to Paris, tout de suite. Wishing you a lovely Thursday! xoxo

Krystal said...

Debby said...

What the heck is Kif If cardies? Cardigans? Once again, I feel like I live under a rock. Yes, this couple is way too gorgeous... can you imagine how unbelievably good looking their kids would be. xo

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

What a glamorous life. While she's a bit questionable on "The City", she has impeccable style.

p.s. I read that they're getting bored of her work drama on the show and want her bf to be on or she'll get cut. He refuses, so what's the story line then?

Diana Mieczan said...

She is so stylish and her guy is such an eye candy..hahah:)
She really know ins and outs of fashion:)

Wish you a wonderful almost Friday,sweetie:)

Oh, yes, I would love to say 'My Valentino clutches for dress up.' Wouldn't that be fabulous? I think a garment rack is on my list of requests that next time I travel. That would make me feel instantly glamorous!

Marie-Ève said...

That girl is so fab... Although judging from the pictures, I really don't think this is *all* she brought!... :-)

Tanvi said...

Some people 'do' have it all [at least materialistically speaking :P] ... And on top of that she sounds lovely and is gorgeous looking. God! really isn't fair! Ha :)

Cara said...

What I would do to gain access to her closet!!

PS. who brings a garmet rack with them on vacay?!

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

So many pretty things - I hope Olivia appreciates all she has in life.

v [ hobovogue ] said...

splendid little thrills said...

I hope she is not really like she is on The City, bc that would be a shame. I like to think that nice girls finish first, not the bitchy ones. Regardless, she is so put-together perfect, and I'm not surprised that her bf is just as perfect.

Damaris said...

this is awesome. when I travel I bring diapers (for the baby, not myself...not there yet). My life is so not glamorous.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Sigh...nice life she has, indeed! Happy almost Friday!!!

Fabíola Beltrão said...

The Simply Luxurious Life said...

I loved taking a peek at her traveling list. A bit more extravagant than anything I bring, but what inspiration. And to travel with a man like that - the perfect accessory. =)

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Hello Beautiful! She is so chic and stylish...and strolling around Paris with her love? Her life sounds so dreamy! Valentino clutches, wow. :) I love to bring cardis and ballet flats on my vacations too, but I'm sure they are a lot cheaper than her's!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful week! I'm off to enter your giveaway, sounds wonderful!
xoxo
