Travel Staples


(Vintage blouse and hat, SOLD Design Lab pants, Velvetine Paris bag, Cole Haan sandals)

Whenever I travel, I always throw a classic vintage white button down in my suitcase. It's my must-have and looks good with pretty much everything. Another travel staple? One of my vintage hats. I've been living in this brown one. Works wonders too when I don't feel like putting on makeup or doing my hair :) I feel a bit like Indiana Jones meets Jane Goodall meets "I'm goin on a safari ride in the desert." I love it! And I'm all for the classic black skinny, but this faux leather pair adds a cool edge to this look. What easy pieces are in your carry-on suitcase?

White button down is essential! Works really with anything dressed up or down...For me another essential is a good resistant messenger bag..medium size..and better in a neutral color like black or grey...they go with practically anything and is very helpful to keep things you may buy in one bag.

Love the leggings and your right, It's all about having those basic pieces that have a little extra edge. It's hard enough to pack a sufficient selection of clothes when traveling, so having pieces like this is essential and makes it alot easier!!
