As I am preparing for my upcoming move/adventure I am challenging myself to pack a little as possible.
I am bringing 2 backpacks. One for my computer and essentials. Then, the other one is a 44L for clothes and shoes. LET’S DO THIS!
I have been inspired in one of Lauren Conrad’s books about travel. She spoke about how traveling overseas and in the country to never pack anything you wouldn’t want to loose. That cuts down my leftovers of what I didn’t sell in closet to probably about 2 items, haha but seriously. Since this is going to challenge myself to pack light and only what I need, I figured basic were the way to go.
Forever21 has cute and affordable basics, so I couldn’t have done better because if my backpack was left somewhere or stolen, I am not loosing heaps of money. However, I hope this will not be the case though! Preparation is always key.
I found a few tops that are very versatile thus, lighter the backpack will be, yassss!!!
You can check these cute little tank crops here. && this adorable Velvet crop here, as well.
I wanted to stick to pretty neutral colors, that way I can dress them up and down no matter what. I also wanted a nice dressier shirt that way I don’t have too rely on jewelry every day. Jewelry weighs a lot so, less jewelry the better. No matter what though, basic tops are always a go-to for any look. Cotton is easy to dress up, so from day to night, you’re set babe!
to be continued…
No matter how early I set that alarm, or even how loud I have it, I can never wake up when I want. I will never be a morning person no matter how hard I try. Or maybe just this season, but I really hope my style isn’t showing how lazy I am.
I do try to push for the more minimalistic look, so it can go hand in hand with being effortlessly chic and running late.

It’s the time of the month, you’ve ate too many chips, you skipped your workout by a week or you’re incredibly dehydrated. Either way, those pants are not going on, not even if you criscoed the inner jean lining. It’s not happening friend! I have the ultimate solution that will hide that food belly because you could not resist that whole loaf of appetiser bread at dinner. Two words
Sweater Dress. *insert angel voices ahhing*
This has to be possibly the most genius pieces ever known to man-kind, could be a tad exaggeration however, let’s go with it.
A sweater dress is offically a must-have in your wardrobe for all season long. Whether it’s a dinner date, a girls night in, a trip to the shops, etc this versatile piece of clothing will allow you to dance your pants off whenever and wherever. This specific hoodie dress is so chic. The floral adds such a girly, jewellery is minimal for this outfit. For you momma’s out there, I know the last thing you want is to have all your necklaces be snatched off by those cute little babe hands. This is also perfect for last minute outfit choices too. If all else fails, forget the all black outfit you’ve been wearing all week, pop this dress on and you’re set.
When the seasons change you can pair it with tights, jeans or even a maxi skirt. But since its beautiful weather, I decided to soak it up and wear it as a dress paired with my street runners since today is errand day. The less hassle, the better. RubyClaireBoutique was so kind to send me this piece and I instantly knew this would be a forever piece once I saw it. If you want a better description you can check that out here.
Below I will have a binge or bargain so you can get so more ideas of what is out there!
