MARFA TRAVEL / PART TWO

maria trip part two | designlovefest

i did a full post on marfa here and this is part TWO! we stayed only one night in the airstreams at el cosmico before we moved over to our airbnbs for the other two nights. (by the way, i think 3 nights and 3 days was a really perfect amount of time to go to marfa)

the houses were AMAZING!! literally the most perfect location walking distance from the grocery store, our favorite bar, and pretty much everything else. the place had two houses that shared a yard and was decorated very verrrry cute. if you want to stay here, click here and here. and if you would like $20 off your first airbnb trip, click here! the houses fit us all and we even had an amazing back house with a firepit and dining table. we were calling it the VIP room ha. seriously, book this spot!

MARFA TRAVEL / PART 1

marfa travel guide 1 | designlovefest

i have about 5,000 photos from this marfa trip so it was reeeeally hard to narrow down. i’m just such a sentimental sap, that having documentation of important memories means the world to me. i’d say it was pretty much the best 30th birthday i could have asked for. i was almost going to just have a little dinner party at my house and i am SO glad we decided to make marfa happen. we were worried it was going to be too freezing to enjoy it, but it really wasn’t at all. during the day was about 65 degrees and it only got cold at night. i’m from chicago, so the cold didn’t bother me!

i’m going to be doing two posts on what we did in marfa, here we go!

traveling in style is not an easy task, i’m not one to wear full on pajamas on a plane but i do want to be comfortable. i always have a few essentials on hand that make flying a bit more enjoyable and allow me to arrive at my destination refreshed and ready for adventure. i love this post kira put together with some of her favorite items, i will definitely be adding some of these in on my next trip!

“I’ve got a month long trip to Portugal coming up which I am so excited about, (If anyone has any great tips to share, I’d love to hear them! It’s my first time- we are going all over!) so, of course, travel is on my mind. Especially those long overnight flights. I went to college in Buenos Aires, Argentina, so the long haul is not new for me. After all these years of experience, I’ve dialed in my in-flight line up. Leggings are a must for sleeping and maximum comfort so to take my outfit up a notch (and not feel blah) I pair them with a chic, oversized sweater and booties. It’s all about disguising comfort as “understated chic.” Also I know I’m always cold on the plane. A blanket-like scarf and cozy socks keep me covered, literally. And then there are all of the other little accouterments that make the trip go more smoothly and comfortably. Explore the photos below for ideas! (And do let me know about those Portugal recommendations please…)”  – kira

NEW ORLEANS TRAVEL GUIDE

i’ve been wanting to go to new orleans for a looooong time. it’s one of those U.S. cities on my bucket list that i just never got around to visiting. i was asked by the city of new orleans to come stay for 4 days and tell people my favorite things to do there. they are all about everyone having a different experience when they travel whether it’s families, young people, or even someone like me. they were super cool and let me plan the trip how i would like to plan it (and you guys were so helpful in that too!) so that i could genuinely tell you what i would recommend doing when you visit. so here it goes…

i brought my friend anna along (one of my long time best friends since i was 16 and my cali neighbor!) we stayed at the international house hotel. it was in a really great location, quiet but a very close walk to all the action in the french quarter. comfortable rooms and nice service. all the hotels in the area seemed to have a very traditional vibe to them. our first night we decided to just walk around the vibrant french quarter (new orleans’ oldest neighborhood) and get our bearings. i loved looking at all the historic architecture, plant filled balconies, and tiny charming alleys.
