What I’m wearing:
I love surprising people. This may shock you, given my profession. I rarely check my luggage when traveling! The reasons why are obvious. You save money. You save time. You save anxiety. Here are some tips to travel lite for your next trip.
Rolling luggage is great, but duffle bags are much more chic. I flew to Punta Cana, DR with this one. I also find I can pack more into a duffle. When packing, strategize outfits that are versatile and light. Think silks, nylons and cottons. Minimize your denim to one pair of your favorite jeans and switch outfit looks with various tops. The planes and airports are freezing, so I wear my heaviest pieces en-route. Heavy sweatshirts, long cardigan sweaters or both layered are favorite plane ride pieces. My Shalice Noel Bleeker Street Poncho is also a great piece for the airport chill.
I carry a large purse for my personal item and a smaller shoulder bag that keeps my travel documents, wallet and essential self-care items secured. I also fit some overflow pieces into my larger purse, like pajamas, cozy socks, and swim suit. When I board the plane, I fit the small shoulder bag into my larger purse and the crew is happy.
Traveling comes with enough anxiety. Knowing my luggage is with me while traveling saves me a lot of stress and I love a good challenge. Let me know your packing tips and check out these favorite travel pieces below.
Things I packed:
Large purse – Chanel cocoon and the MZ Wallace is a very similar affordable version
Small purse – leatherology meadow satchel I love to add my Fendi strap
We’re working on a BIG (hard) project I can’t wait to share more later. The kids have been awesome in the midst of this transition. I’m loving these new comfy pjs from Janie and Jack. All that’s missing is a Christmas tree.
Hope your week is going well!
I had to travel to get inspired. I love the white landscape of Alys Beach. This linen skirt with pockets is a favorite on repeat. I paired it with my favorite modal tee in black from Shop Shalice Noel.

Today I visited my local Nordstrom with Reid and styled some looks! There were too many florals and print if you ask me so I combed through the selection with a fine tooth comb. Which look is your favorite?
Mother Jeans – have tons of stretch so you can go down a size. I tried on a 26, and 25, and ended up getting a 25.
FRAME dress. Gorgeous shape, sleeves and cut. A must have if it’s not sold out. I got a small/.
Sam Edelman boots I went down half a size since they were sold out of size 9.
L’Agence Flares – I got my true 26
Valentino Belt not included in the NSALE, but its reversible, I’ve worn it more times than I can count and downright chic. Definitely, a worthy investment buy.
Ted Baker Trench – super chic but keep in mind it runs small, I’m wearing a size 1 here.
FRAME pink silk top I got a small
Treasure & Bond Stripe Sweater – I got a medium since oversized is so hot right now. I love a cozy knit for fall.
Cloud Swift Running Shoe – So comfy. I got my true size. Now I know why this brand has a huge cult following.
Eileen Fisher Wide leg pants – perfect for travel, with pockets. I got an XS (sz 2-4) and has a comfy viscose spandex blend. Made in USA.
Louis Vuitton Toiletry 26 Bag – love this underrated bag for day or night!
MatchesFashion is one of my favorite destinations to shop for luxury items. They have fast shipping and beautiful presentation.

Today I’m wearing the Hunza G swimsuit as a bodysuit, Citizens jeans, woven bag and oversized chunky gold bracelet. I love adding spring essentials to these cotton Daphne jeans. Happy Spring!

Spring is just around the corner, however, it’s not short sleeves weather yet. Bring on the light layers and sporty caps, I’m ready. I forgot how much I love the baseball hat and sweatshirt combo! Reid and I enjoyed Valentines Day lattes downtown Alpharetta. Both the company and sunshine was more than welcome. I linked my layers below for easy shopping.
What do you think?
I’m not a huge black Friday person, but I do LOVE a random score. I found this storage bench 40% off for my boys room, damper for Reid’s espresso machine, socks from Nordstrom, boots 40% off and vitamins from Mary Ruth 30% off. I’m bringing pies for Thanksgiving at our friend’s house. Where are you going?
Let me know what you find!
