Studies have shown that the anticipation of an upcoming vacation can bring almost as much pleasure as the actual vacation itself. In other words, wanting something can be just as or even more fun than having it (and dreaming about the day that scanning deadhead flight pricing lines up with my plans and I can fly private to my destination). I know for me, planning an upcoming trip is extremely exciting, as I can picture every moment that will possibly happen, and the instagram pic that will follow. Of course for me, that imagining always has to do with fashion, and I always plan my outfits in advance (i usually do a preview on snapchat: Lovezahra.com) because I love getting input on anything I decide to wear.
This outfit I am wearing was a complete impulse purchase – i mean sequin shorts?!? But my vacation philosophy always dictates going out of your comfort zone and having fun, so these were pretty much a necessary buy – and by the way, they are on major sale now so if you like them pick them up, quick!
