4 Ways to Wear a White Tshirt: Sassy but Classy

    I've been planning this post for a while now, but haven't had time to take pictures of the other outfits. So I decided I would separate them into different posts. I am wondering...what do you all edit your pictures with? What websites, software, etc do you use? I find that editing pictures can be so stressful with all the clicking & entering different files.. What are some of your tips?

    Anyway, a white tshirt is one of the basics. There is so many ways to wear it! Dress it up or down, you just can't go wrong.. I love the accessories I paired with this outfit! I'm not big on statement necklaces, but this one is perfect! I've always wanted a hat like this, so when I found it at Wet Seal for $10, I had to get it! The shoes just pull the whole outfit together!

Tshirt: Old Navy   Boyfriend Capris: American Eagle     Necklace: Old Navy

Travel Preperation

   In  29 days I will be leaving America for the first time.. If you know me, you know that if there's one thing I want to do before I die, it's travel the world. There is something that makes me feel so alive when I travel. Getting put in a setting your not used to and taking in all that's around you is thrilling. It's mind blowing how many beautiful places are out there... you can even find some beautiful people along the way. ;)
   I'm definitely a city girl! There's no doubt about it! I love EVERYTHING about the city- the busyness of it all, the streets, unique architecture of the buildings, the variety of delicious food, and of course the shopping! I could go on but I think I'll stop there for now. Anyway, I'll be going to England, France, and Spain. I will be there 15 days. I've never been on an airplane before, so I'm most nervous about that. It's a 12 hour flight from DC to London. I'm also nervous about that.. How will I wash my face? Who am I going to have to sit beside? How am I going to sleep? I REALLY want a window seat! Of course I want to take a picture of the city lights from the sky at night..
   Here's a few places we are going.


Loire Valley

Saintes& Bordeaux

Arcachon& Biarritz




Beautiful, right? I'm blessed.

Sooo. I figured I might as well write a post to maybe get some advice/recommendations/tips, etc. Anything will help! This is a trip with EF Tours, so things are already planned but I'm hoping (please God) we'll have free time.
If you have ever been to one of these cities let me know about your experience.. or if you have ever taken a trip with EF Tours.

I was hoping to find some sandals like this:
 Women's Sandals - link:

If you know where I could these, or similar, please let me know!

Now for the specific questions:
What type or size carry on should I take?
Do you take any sleeping medications on planes, if so what kind?
What are some shopping/eating that you recommend if I get free time?
Must do/try things?
What should I wear/ be sure to take?
Travel lifesavers?
What do I need to do to use my cell phone & internet?
Tips for relaxing & enjoying myself?!?!

Of course, I have already researched a ton about everything, but I want to hear your opinions & experiences!  I know that England & France can be very chilly & rainy, and Spain is hot.. 
Recommendations on what to wear? In the churches we have to cover our shoulders, and wear pants down to our knees to be respectful.... How many pairs of shorts should I pack then?

I still have so much to get, its crazy..
Maybe I will do update posts for further questions & preparation! 

Your opinions & tips are greatly appreciated!
