I’m Sara. The woman obsessed with trying to build the perfect travel wardrobe.

I am also an extreme bibliophile, a hopeful traveller, trying my damnedest to learn french, and a mom to two girls. I have been married for 11 years to Thomas aka Tom who is a former musician and now works in the tv/movie industry in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where we recently located to.

What you will find on here: building my minimalist/capsule wardrobe, packing lists for around the world, family stories, funny happenings, things I bought, things I wish I could afford to buy, thrift shopping, bargains, life’s complaints, ambitious travel plans that may never see the light of day, and possible DIY projects depending on my motivation level.

What you won’t find on here: Really good pictures because I kind of suck at photography. You also won’t see a beautifully decorated and styled home. We have too much crap. Too much crap in a 700 sq ft condo with no storage. Plus, my husband likes to stack and is incapable of putting his clothes away so there are piles scattered about. Mostly on my dining table which is a diy project gone bad. We scavenged our bed frame from the side of the road. (It’s a nice frame though and is from a rich neighbourhood). There are finger prints on my computer and television, yogurt prints on my table, and what I believe is a full on face print on my closet mirror doors. My sink always seems like no one ever cleans it, no matter how often I do it. The bathroom mirror has toothpaste spots, and for some reason I always find q-tips hidden around the house.

What you will get is my promise to keep it real though.

Sara xoxo

  1. Stoked for your site Sara. I have been friends with Naomi Brewer since we were 18 she told me about your page. ♡ Thanks for keeping it real! Aloha Ona

  2. I always keep it real which is probably why I don’t have a shit ton of friends ;) I’m still working the kinks out on here and trying to figure out what direction I am going with it. Thanks for stopping by! Sara

  3. Stumbled across your site via something from Pinterest and I love it. Going to Italy this fall so your list is perfect! Can’t wait to put it all together on my over-50 bod! Thanks

    • Yay! I love to hear when a list is helpful :) I hope you have a fantastic time in Italy!

  4. Hi Sara! I found you on Pinterest right before my trip to Tulum. I love your style and packing lists, inspiring and helpful! Our style is similar and age :)) Keep on keeping on!

    • Thank you! I love when people find the lists useful, and I love that we are similar tastes and ages. It makes me feel better about not dressing like what a “mom” is supposed to dress like :)

  5. Hi, I found your site through Pinterest and I love all of your travel lists! As a 30-something Mom, I second guess all of my outfits (too young? Too mom-ish?). I’m looking forward to catching up on your posts.

    • Thanks Sarah! I use to second guess everything too for many years trying to fit in to that “appropriate mom wear” box and decided to say screw it a few years back. I just dress as me and pick things based more on feeling good and myself in them rather than trying to wear what someone else thinks a mom should dress like. Just be you and you can’t really go wrong. Thanks for stopping by :)
