my new maxi

When I was a kid, key chains were my go-to souvenir. Any time my family and I went somewhere new, I had to get a key chain. As an adolescent, key chains were replaced for t-shirts. I can't tell you how many t-shirts I have from cities around the world. And for a short time, I collected coffee mugs. But on this latest vacation, I didn't come home with key chains or t-shirts. Instead, I came home with a maxi dress and a scarf. What kinds of souvenirs do you collect? If you don't collect them, why not?




Dress (c/o Mom): H&M [exact]
Necklace: gift from grandma
Sunglasses: via Kohl's
Bag: The Limited

  1. Good to see you back! How was the vacation? Was it the one to Serbia? I hope you had a great time! I would love to see some pictures from your vacation actually :)! The maxi dress suits you very well and I think you also got your hair cut, right!? It looks great! Plus the sunglasses make the look perfect :)
    Have a wonderful time!

  2. Yay! You're back! I never collected 1 specific thing on vacations, but I do find myself leaning towards jewelry souvenirs as I get older. I will say that I am now kicking myself for not getting any jewelry when we were on our honeymoon in Jamaica. I bought 2 shirts (that I never wear) and we got a ton of rum (which is now gone- thanks husband lol).
    Anyways- this dress, yes indeed! I loveeee it. It's perfect with that necklace too. And turqoise and purple look good together, why did I never think of that?!

  6. Welcome back! This is such a gorgeous dress on you. I have never been of collector of anything (unless you count clothes) so I rarely buy any thing on vacation.

  7. Ooo! That dress is beautiful! I love the turquoise necklace with it too! Maybe it's strange, but I collect pencils from where ever I go. I like that they always say the name of the place, are cheap, and don't take up much space. I probably have over 700 now!

  9. I love this dress! And I'm glda to see you back :) And I don't collect anything too seriously, but lately Trav and I have been trying to bring back one thing to use in the kitchen with from every trip - so a local seasoning salt, coffee beans, salt & pepper shakers that are unique, or something along those lines. It's been fun!

  10. Oh, man, your hair looks awesome, and I love the print of this dress. Did Momma dukes pick it out? If so, she has good taste. Either way, yay for Momma. I'm curious, too. Where'd you go for vacation?

  11. Scarves are my go-to souvenirs. I think everyone in my family and close friends know that. Recently my sis has been bringing me bags as well, although my Peru bag finally broke.

    Gorgeous dress! So glad you're back :)

  12. That dress is so so so cute on you! What a great souvenir. I was a big keychain collector. I still have some lying around somewhere. For awhile it was playing cards and now, I try not to collect things because they just take up space! Oh yeah, I also have a pressed penny book with pennies from all over the US.

  15. I really love this dress and am tempted to go to h&m to look for it. Most maxi dresses I see have deep v-necks and I am like "actually I'd like to cover my cleavage, thanks!" On the topic of souvenirs, I usually get Christmas ornaments because they are small and it's fun to reminisce about all the places we've been each year when we decorate the tree.
