When I traveled back to LA this past trip, I packed one carry-on suitcase for 5 weeks. I packed two shorts, two jeans, a couple cardigans, three sweaters, a dress, a nice shirt, two casual shirts, one button-down and carried on a military jacket. And I was fine! I’m a big re-user in clothes anyways, when I find a sweater I like, I’ll wear it everyday for two weeks and then rotate in another one. It also helps that I sub, so I’m usually at a different school everyday so no one calls me out on my fashion faux-pas. I thought it would be fun to share with you what 5 days and 1 carry-on looks like! So here goes:
Why I love it? Easy California style. A button-down, white shirt, jeans, sandals and a funky necklace for a quick day of errands.
Button-down: J. Crew (similar $150) / Tank: J. Crew $24.50 / Jeans: J. Brand $150/ Sandals: Sam Edelman $65/ Purse: Vintage Fendi
Why do I love it? My favorite bright cardigan with some fun printed shorts and nude sandals make for a great warm weather outfit. Pop of color with a little texture.
Cardigan: J. Crew $218 / Tank: J. Crew $24.50/ Shorts: Joie (similar $178) / Sandals: Sam Edelman $65 / Purse: Vintage Fendi
Why I love it? The perfect girls’ night outfit. I love pairing my fun printed ankle jeans with pointy red flats. When I first put on this blue cardigan I didn’t know if it would clash with the shoes, but it actually worked perfectly!
