This might be one of my favorite outfits ever. I have a confession: I’m not always the best packer. Ideally, I’d plan out all my outfits in advance, including accessories, and take photos so I remember what I plan to wear. I’d pack them all together in packing cubes and just be an organized little B. But in reality, I threw my suitcase together in an hour before rushing to the airport to catch my flight. Oops. I’m not always that disorganized, but you get the point.
So for this outfit to come together the way it did was a surprise and a total delight. I definitely didn’t plan it at all, in fact, I kind of planned something else. This crop top actually comes with a matching maxi skirt, which I love. Matching sets are totally a favorite of mine, but it’s weird – I’ve worn this crop top twice, and both times I wore it with different bottoms. I don’t know why I’m not wearing the set together, but I really can’t complain. How cute does it look with these comfy floral pants?
The simple champagne gold sandals go with everything, so they were a clear choice. And of course I also had to wear my Italian souvenir – my new Gucci bag. So pretty, right?! It was my first time making a big purchase like that, but I definitely saved some money by buying it in Italy with the non-EU tax back. Plus, I will always remember the experience of buying a Gucci bag in Venice with my best friend. Just let me rationalize this, ok guys?
Finally, when it was cold, I wore my new fall go-to jacket: the SHAGBOMB. To say I’m obsessed with this cozy, chic jacket is a total understatement. I wore this thing nonstop during my trip, both on the plane rides and everywhere I went. It goes with everything and is just so so pretty. (Use code SHAGLUSH for 10% off!) It’s reminiscent of the 60s, but with a modern spin. I just love the retro vibes! These round sunnies help hammer the retro style home, don’t you think?
