2 Continents

I usually don't buy souvenirs.

Trousers Forever 21 - Yellow blouse LuckyCom - Silk flats - Grey bag 
I think they're tacky, specially those 
with the names of the place visited
printed on them.


So, I buy items I can wear instead of souvenirs. 

Yellow Tour bear earrings 
Today I put together souvenirs from two continents in an outfit.
The scarf from a Guatemalan crafts market and
the silk flats from Turkey.

Do you buy souvenirs ?

I think buying souvenirs of clothes or accessories is a great way to remember your trip for many days afterwards! I often find I tie emotions up with my clothes and accessories, they have lots of memories attached!

I like to get ornaments for my christmas tree, and I've been known to get the accessory or two, however, it does make it hard to get rid of them, because even if you never wear it, if it came from Italy, that's it, you are keeping it forever.

Generally, yes, but save for postcards (most of which I send off to friends and family while on my travels), I share your desire to purchase pieces that are more practical and able to be readily enjoyed once you're home without seeming like you just stepped off a cruise ship. :)
