I am a dress girl all the way and I am so happy the weather has turned enough that I can wear them again. I bought this navy dress last year and I packed it for a meeting in Paris. I will pair it with these flats. I also love this Leith dress that is so easy to roll up and throw in your suitcase and wear with boots.
I love my Madewell skinny jeans. I have a few pairs now and they wear great. One thing I love about them over my Hudson jeans is they don’t stretch out so much after one wear. My Hudsons drop a complete size after one wear with stretch. For size reference, I am a 27.
I bought my first Something Navy top in white. The sleeves look more blousy in the photos than it does in real life. I love the fitted look and the buttons are a great accent.
Bring on the body suits! I wore them all Winter and they will be a staple for me Spring/Summer. This one is great with high waisted jeans or a skirt. I bought it in white but I will be back for more colors since the price is so reasonable.
Grey Sweater. I love the button detail down the side. The Winter in Chicago has been SO long and I pretty much hate all my sweaters. This was a great addition and it was only $68. It will be colder in London than Paris so this will be great to layer with a scarf and leather jacket.
My leather jacket will always be my Spring/Fall Staple piece. I wear it all the time and it was worth the money. Denim jackets are big this Spring so I ended up picking up this one from Madewell. I am still deciding on if I am bringing it or if I will bring my navy blazer instead. Either way, a denim jacket is a great addition to your Spring wardrobe and goes great over dresses as the weather transitions.
I am going for one week and I need four pair of shoes. That is reasonable right? My Madewell sneakers are a new favorite and are great for walking. I saw these all over Paris earlier this year, so if you are curious if sneakers are ok, this is a great option and they are $88! I wear little socks with them that you can’t see but reduce the risk of blisters.
I packed in my Away carry on and I am bringing my Cuyana tote that goes everywhere with me! I also am bringing a Cuyana cross body bag for nights out and my Longchamp for during the day when I don’t want to carry my larger Cuyana tote.
