What I Wore: Europe Summer 2013

Here’s a look at some of my favorite outfits  I wore (and re-wore) on my trip to Europe this summer. Keep in mind, while traveling, you have to get crafty with outfit planning and sometimes, can re-invent a tired outfit by simply changing an accessory, shoe, bag or even a hairstyle. I had to use these tricks while on my trip considering I had just one suitcase of clothes to work with for several months (oh, and the bit of shopping I did as well 😉

The trick to simple and effective dressing while you travel, is sticking to a few base colors in your clothing so you can easily mix and match. My default shades were (naturally) black, white/ivory and a medium wash navy. Use minimal prints and choose accessories that pack a punch. Bring one carryall handbag that works with any outfit, and a couple smaller ones that you can use to help change up your look (and lighten your load).

This is a sample of some looks I put together while on my trip:

On a rainy day in June, I wore this to school: Nordstrom hat, Pimkie chambray top, Urban Outfitters tee (old),  Joe’s Jeans knit ponte pant, Vince Camuto bag (my go to for travel) and Clarks booties.

My favorite LBD from H&M (only €9.99! proved to be the most versatile item I’ve EVER bought) paired with a Sfera necklace and of course my Clark’s booties!
