Travel Trousseau

I went on a three day business trip this week and was restricted to carry-on luggage. I planned my outfits by emulating the travel wardrobe spreads often featured in fashion magazines. The clothing is usually all in the same color family and the pieces are interchangeable. For this trip, I brought pieces in brown, lime green, and pink. I brought one item of jewelry for each day. The result: I wore a few items twice, but the outfits were different every day.

Day 1, Oct 24. Multicolored tweed jacket, don't remember. Pink, cowl-neck shell, New York and Company. Brown, cuffed pants, Victoria's Secret. Pink chandelier earrings, Claire's. I will have to check the tag on this jacket for the brand. It is one of my favorites because it matches my favorite colors and it is very warm. It cost far more than any other blazer I own, but it was worth it!

Day 2, Oct 25. Pink sweater with sequins, Victoria's Secret. Pink, cowl-neck shell, New York and Company. Brown suede skirt with cutouts, Mossimo for Target. Pink beads, Claire's. Brown boots, Nine West. This sweater was a recent purchase from the clearance section of the VS website. It was a steal!
It's too bad I didn't get a better photo of my hair. I recently bought a "banana clip" and am enjoying the 80's revival. It works well with my wavy hair.

Day 3, Oct 26. Multicolored tweed jacket, don't remember. Lime green cami, Deep by Los Angeles. Brown suede skirt with cutouts, Mossimo for Target. Brown boots, Nine West. (Hidden necklace is very cute and I'm sorry it slid to the side when I was setting up the photo!)

All 3 outfits with mixing and matching are real nice. I particularly love the third one. There are 3-4 pieces in these outfits that I love: the cut-out suede skirt which is fab, the amazing tweed jacket which looks very Chanel, the sequined hot pink cardigan - also amazing, and the fun coral beaded necklace. ;-)
