Summer travel is right around the corner, and if you’re like me, half the fun of the adventure is planning what to wear! Whether you’re a planner or a last-minute packer, here’s the inspo you need for packing 9 sustainable must-haves in your suitcase:
The Sovanna Top is a true dress-up-or-down piece and goes equally well with the Fillmore Boyfriend Jeans or the Val Mini Skirt. The breezy and sustainable deadstock rayon fabric keeps you cool, while the smocking at the waist gives a flattering silhouette with an oh-so-elegant neckline. How it is both so unique and timeless at once is a brilliant bit of magic to me! Speaking of magic, this top can also fit with a variety of aesthetics - from minimalist to boho - without skipping a beat.
The Fillmore Boyfriend Jeans have a relaxed fit and ease of movement that is just right when exploring a new place. Stroll around a city in these jeans, sneakers, and a trusty t-shirt. For an evening at an outdoor cafe, pair with your Sovanna Top, The Serena heeled sandals, and statement earrings. The Fillmore Boyfriend Jeans will be the only pair of jeans you need to bring along!
Have a long-haul flight? The Sasha Trousers are my go-to that work well beyond the trains, planes, and automobiles, serving as a comfortable, semi-casual bottom. If you see me on your flight, I’ll be in the Sasha Trousers, a cropped sweatshirt, the Face Line Dad Hat, and sneakers. When I’m in classy vacation mode, I’ll wear them with a tunic blouse and The Sabina loafers.
If I can only fit one dress in my suitcase, it will undoubtedly be the Ari Peasant Dress. It has practical details I need when traveling like pockets, jersey fabric, and ¾ sleeves. Its adorable style also goes with sneakers, heeled sandals like The Serena or even The Sabina loafers.
Let’s not forget about jewelry! Once I got my hands on the Jewelry Box, it leveled up my packing game. No more earrings disappearing to the depths of my carry-on! This high-quality and expertly designed piece will last for a lifetime of memorable trips. Treat yourself to the Jewelry Box and thank me later.
Speaking of smart and high-quality choices, the Pixie Pouch Wallet is a must, especially if you travel internationally. The Pixie Pouch Wallet fits it all: passport, cash, coins, cards, and even your phone. As someone who appreciates versatility and making the most of every piece I own, I don’t just save this wallet for trips; I use it daily.
There are two pairs of summer shoes I strongly recommend. The first are The Serena sandals. Every summer trip needs a pair of sandals and they might as well be heeled! The comfortable bit of lift will fit in on a night out in the Nolita Tee or elevate the Fillmore Boyfriend Jeans for a casual look.
The second pair are The Sabina loafers. These closed-toe classics can also dress up or down and are designed to last. Wear them as you explore boutiques and end your day with a refreshing cocktail at a local bar.
Don’t forget to toss the Face Line Dad Hat in your bag! Keep the sun out of your eyes and your hair out of your face with this contemporary staple. Having a rough hair day while on the road? This hat is the solution.
