I’m chalking 2018 up as memorable yet chaotic year. She was filled with high highs and low lows with Trump mania, the #MeToo movement, catastrophic weather events, royal weddings, the Thai football team stuck in a cave and our nation’s leader consecutively running the country and raising a newborn. This has not been a boring trip around the sun. To offer some respite from the year that was I present The Escapism Issue. Whether that means seeking distraction and relief through informative reads and beautiful shoots or literally jumping on a plane and escaping everyday life with a trip away (be it a coffee and craft-beer jaunt around Portland or taking a restorative and restful break in Bali) we’ve got you covered. As Christmas nears you’ll also have gifts for your…

SOFT ROMANCE Florals straight from the prairie or china cabinet bring a feminine ease to any look. The more the merrier in this case. FRIENDLY FELINES Throw out the rulebook and get wild by mixing clashing animal prints, as seen at Rochas and Saint Laurent. PEACE OUT Take a trip with psychedelic florals that harp back to the 70s.

Every time I take a trip, I end up with a crammed suitcase but still find myself wearing the same thing over and over. How do I avoid the unnecessary excess and make packing easier?
