I’ve been rocking my Nicole Vienna watch nonstop – it goes with every outfit and is so chic and timeless. It’s the perfect accessory for day and night. I rocked it to brunch the other day, and then last night at an Art Basel event. It compliments any outfit and is understated, yet feminine and classy. Don’t forget, you get 15% OFF the entire website with the code GOCHIC. Such a perfect gift for the holidays!

I love coming across brands with unique points of difference, and JORD watches definitely embraces that.  It’s a creative brand that values sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living, and on top of that they make beautiful men’s and women’s watches made of natural woods (and I’m giving you a chance to win a $75 gift card to their online shop!). My Zebrawood and Turquoise watch is one of my go-to accessories and one of my favorite products right now. I love that it has a summery-feel, but can also transition to Fall with the warm wood and pop of color. The good news for you: I’m holding a contest where the winner will receive a $75 e-gift code to their online shop, plus ALL entrants will receive a $20 e-gift code automatically emailed to you, just for entering! Simply click here to enter through 11/6, and you’ll have through 2/28/17 to use your $20 gift code (and…

You can’t go wrong with classic and timeless watches, which is why I fell so in love with this beautiful Nicole Vienna timepiece. Their Soir N° 79 Mesh style watch has a minimal design with just the right touch of glam and luxury.  I love the gold mesh bracelet, and the black marbled face dresses it up even more. The watch is made of high-quality stainless steel and effortlessly dresses up any outfit. The other amazing feature is that the strap is actually interchangeable, allowing you to customize the band with other options!  The best part for you, is the price is so great ($129), but you’ll also get 15% off your purchase with the code: GOCHIC. For a piece this stunning, it’s an amazing deal (and option for a holiday gift as we get closer to the season!).

For my travels through Seville, Málaga, and Granada, I was so excited to partner with Oasis Backpacker’s Hostels. They’re a modern chain of hostels that have locations in all three cities, as well as in Toledo, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal. The hostels are reasonably priced, and really emphasize a young and social culture, which is great for traveling solo and meeting new people. As I’ve only stayed in hostels a couple of times before (and only once completely solo), it was really important for me to find not only a property where I could meet new people, but a safe and clean hostel in a good location. I wanted to ensure that the property itself was secure, that the location would be easy for me to get to from the bus or train station I was coming from, and that it would be easy for me to get to and from the…

I’m back in Barcelona after traveling for 2 weeks through Spain, and have made my way through Madrid, Seville, Málaga, Granada, and San Sebastián. It’s been crazy hot temperatures, especially in the south areas of Andalucia. So, let’s talk Madrid! As a city girl, I love the big city feel that Barcelona has, which is part of what attracted me to it. Well, Madrid has that plus more! Being August, I know that the city was actually more quiet than the rest of the year, as August in Spain is typically when residents and businesses take vacation. Even so, there was a hustle and bustle and sophistication that swept me off my feet. I took a 7am train to ensure two full days and I stayed close to the main train station, Atocha, which is pretty central (more on my accommodations a little later). Since I visited Madrid, Seville, and Málaga for two…

You may have seen this floral off the shoulder top in this post, about my day in Barcelona eating at Flax & Kale and wandering La Boqueria. I’m linking to similar options below, and sharing where this gorgeous necklace is from! Lamara, the sweet owner of Ainkas Jewels, sent me this gorgeous “Dainty Initial Necklace” from her online shop before I left on my travels to Spain. It’s chic and delicate,  but still makes a statement! As for off the shoulder floral tops, here are a few stylish pieces you can rock for the rest of the summer:
