Luggage & Travel Picks

Luggage & Travel Picks

Going away for a week? Think you need to bring half your closet & a huge suitcase ? I got away with a weeks worth of stuff for a San Fran trip in one 21″ carry-on sized (and adorable) suitcase ! : )


In my bag I packed:

1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of chinos, 1 maxi skirt, 2 pairs of shorts.  1 chambray, 1 long sleeve tee, 1 3/4 sleeve tee, 1 blouse.  2 basic tanks, 1 lounge pants, 1 scarf, & 1 leather jacket.  4 pairs of shoes, including: 1 pair of tall boots, 2 pairs of booties (different heel heights), 1 pair of sandals.  2 necklaces, 2 rings, 2 bracelets, 1 watch, & 4 hair ties.  Makeup bag with clarisonic, makeup, travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, and soap.  My travel-binder, trip agenda, and 36 hours travel planner.  Of course also my camera & comfortable neck pillow for the plane ride!


Can you believe it all fit????  Rachel was sure it wouldn’t !


Plane-ready in a metal-less outfit… comfortable in my maxi & tank .  Gonna have the best nap with my pillow : )

Casual ‘First Mate’ Hoodie

Casual 'First Mate' Hoodie

Aaaaaahh… this sweater could not be any more comfortable. I rarely order things from the online shop, given I can get most everything from my local store. However this was an ‘online-exclusive’ item and I needed it. I LOVE rocking a comfy hoodie and casual shorts in the summer (I’m jumping the gun a little given it’s still -30 here).

This hoodie is made of the most interesting fabric. It’s a thick knit that’s almost slinky. Makes me love it even more.


Hoodie: first mate hoodie (sundry)
Pants: pilcro serif legging jeans (pilcro)
