    Kellie Brown, the iconoclastic, NYC-based beauty behind the blog And I Get Dressed, is practically the queen of layering. And, if you're looking for some fresh style advice, you're in luck — Kellie's fiercely feminine Instagram feed is a constant source of sartorial (and lipstick!) ingenuity.
    Whether it's a getaway with the girls or a trip for two in paradise, vacation is kind of your thing. The destination is gorgeous, the time off approved, and nothing else matters. But, once the date draws near, an overwhelming sense of packing panic sets in.

Then, you can go back to being excited about your trip.
