What’s In My Suitcase: Paris

I used to take packing so seriously. I would not only stress for weeks before a trip I would make sure I had new pieces and a ridiculous amount of outfit options. While I still plan and think ahead for what I want to pack, the stressing part is gone. As is the overpacking and overbuying. One of the reasons this changed was my evolution from being trendy to adopting a more classic and minimalist approach to fashion. I love finding about six pieces that I can pack and can interchange throughout my trip. Usually this consist of a pair of black pants, blue jeans, a white t-shirt, a black t-shirt, a silk blouse, a light sweater and a coat.

I snapped a few photos of outfits I will be packing for upcoming trips and this all black ensemble is definitely coming with me. Two of the key pieces are from my FAVORITE french brand, Sézane. If you haven’t heard of it yet, just know that you will be thanking me for years to come. They make capsule collections that are literally everything you’ve been dreaming of! The monogrammed bag (which is so gorgeous in person) and the leather sneakers are part of their fall collection. I am telling you, these sneakers are so chic in person. I wore them on a recent trip and by the end of it two of my fellow travelers had purchased them! They can easily be paired with jeans for running around or a dress for a night out.

If you are looking for classic pieces to fill your closet or suitcase, my favorites are Sézane, Modern Citizen, and Everlane.

The Blouse You Have to Have

I had to share this outfit RIGHT NOW! Why? Because this shirt is on sale for under $100 (use code JUNE2017) at checkout. I know, hard to believe! But it is true! I live in this top. It really goes with anything and is more special than just a plain white blouse. If I could recommend one blouse right now, it is this one. I love it so much I just purchased the black version!

I am wearing a Large but that is because I wanted it a little loose. If you are between sizes I would go down, it definitely doesn’t run small.
