I’m starting to prepare for a trip so that calls for multi-purpose outfits. I don’t check a bag…carry-on only! While that makes traveling easier, it makes packing more challenging. So, how do you make that work and still have room for all the cool clothes and shoes you’re going to buy while away?! For me it means layering pieces and neutral colors. I like to take pieces that pack small and flat and can work multiple ways.
This dress is perfect for traveling. It’s ruching style covers up wrinkles making it really easy to travel. The fabric is super soft and drapes perfectly. It can go dressy for a night out or toss on a sweater and it’s ready for a full day of roaming through museums. Believe it or not I tend to take no more than 3 pairs of shoes…the boots here are constantly on rotation all year-long; a pair of booties and maybe a pair of heels. It all depends on where we are going. For this trip I’ll probably take boots only…I suspect some cool shoes may be purchased along the way so I need room! I also keep my jewelry really simple. Typically I take 1-2 pairs of silver earrings (one for day and one for night) and 1 pair of gold; 2 cocktail rings and 1-2 scarves. I always take a large scarf on the plane to wrap around me or put over my legs…even in the Summer I have one with me!
We are heading to see our niece Georgia in Grease tonight…can wait to see her! Hope to bump into you this weekend around the city. More travel tips next week. Enjoy!
