Thank you to River Island for sponsoring the following blog post. All opinions are my own.

Do you ever just feel like an actual fairy princess that can do all things, as long as you're wearing your magical cape? 

This trench coat from River Island = my magical cape. It's super lightweight, and is the perfect transition piece as we move into summer. River Island has the coolest selection of summery goodness right now. (If you don't own a swimsuit of theirs, you need to: high quality, flattering cuts, and affordable prices. That's quite the trifecta if you ask me!)

Speaking of summer, Jake and I are going to Mexico in September! It will be our first real vacation in about two years. I love traveling and grew up in a family where we travelled multiple times a year, so this dry spell has felt like a lifetime. I'm hoping we can do a few little weekend trips to places nearby like Big Sur, San Francisco, Solvang, and Ojai in the coming months too. I'm super weird in the sense that I used to only view big international trips as real vacations, but I'm coming to the realization that the world is so beautiful, even in our own "backyard." So while I'm extremely grateful and fortunate to be able to have travelled and continue to travel to amazing, exotic locations, I think that if you love to travel like me, then prioritize it and make it happen!

A few other dream locations on my summer travel bucket list are: 
Amalfi Coast

Majorly vibing with Mango's selection, even more so than usual.

See what I mean?

They have all the dreamiest pastel items for sunshine-filled days, and the only thing that's not happy about it is my wallet. #takeallmymoney

If you haven't shopped at Mango, you should definitely check them out. I remember my first encounter with one of their stores was as a young girl in Taiwan. I meandered my way in there with my mom, and loved the selection even then. Every year on our trips to Taiwan, I'd beg my mom to take me to Mango. She thought the selection was too old for me, and she was right, but fast forward almost decade and here we are. It looks like my tastes haven't changed too much! Luckily, now I know how to ask Google where their other stores are and we have a handy-dandy thing called online shopping. (I just realized how ancient I sound in this post. Next thing you know I'll be saying things like "back in my day..." and "you behave now, sonny boy! don't forget your jacket!" lolol I'm annoying.)

I have some fun posts coming your way this week, so check back again tomorrow!
