Skirtin’ Around Haifa

madewell_gapWishing I was still in Israel, but it’s back to reality! I’ll at least get to re-live some parts of it through my next few posts. One of the stops along our tour of Israel was Haifa. It was one of the most relaxing parts of the trip, as our stay spanned over Shabbat (day of rest). So our days were spent strolling through town and hanging by the hotel pool. We stayed at The Dan Carmel Haifa, which is located on Mt. Carmel, providing a great view of the city.

Elephant Trunks

banana republic milly collection 1When I got a glimpse of the Banana Republic Milly Collection look book, I immediately became obsessed with the elephant print shorts.

Lastly, I grabbed the newest additions to my arm candy family because I never leave home without something on my wrists. Right before entering the restaurant, I made my photographer (my poor fiance) snap a few photos of my outfit. Luckily my skinny jeans have super stretch in them because I stuffed myself silly that night with some good Vietnamese cuisine.

Rewind: Iceland

icelandNow that I am back into the swing of things since my return from Iceland, I figured I would give you an update on my short stint in Reyjavik; what I did, what I wore, etc. My weekend trip was to surprise a dear friend for her big 3-0! She was completely shocked when she woke up to her sister and me chilling in the sick apartment her husband rented for us. The apartment was full of interesting pieces of art, as you will see in some of my pics below.
