Basic Babe

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!

Some Goods

Went out to the city today and was on a hunt for some goods. I haven’t had a day in a long time where I specifically go out and just shop for certain pieces. Before today, I haven’t done anything that has to do with fashion in about 2 months. It’s good to get a break from the things you love and just catch a break, so that’s what I did. I am feeling refreshed and ready to get down to business since summer is almost here, I’m in need of hot weather clothes.

My inspiration for my purchases are Olivia Palermo and Carrie Bradshaw.

I have no idea what it is about the H&M here in Melbourne, but my oh my it is FABULOUS. The clothes are beautiful.

Olive Tank: $10.00

Overall, I am pretty satisfied with these purchases. I always make sure when I buy something now i can get more use out of the piece, then just one time. If you want to get your moneys worth, mix matching is the key of fashion success (:

Happy Shopping!
