One of our glorious sunshine filled days in California was spent shopping the day away in the LA hotspot The Grove. We had a fabulous day and I couldn’t help but share a few lovely shots of our time there. My look for the day encompasses what I tend to lean towards while traveling so I thought I’d share a couple of tips for travel outfits. I will list below where I purchased all of my clothing. Enjoy!
Tip #1 Note the small side satchel purse. I’m all for big bags on the day-to-day but when it comes to traveling, especially a shopping-filled travel day, light purses that are able to go cross-body or hang off your shoulder are the way to go.
Tip #2 Wear shoes you’re going to be comfortable in. I am one of those people who is more comfortable in a shoe with some kind of an arch versus something completely flat. These Steve Madden wedges are one of the most comfortable wedges even though they have a pretty good height to them.
Tip #3 Add pops of color with your jewelry, instead of your clothing. When I travel, I tend to pack neutrals so I can mix and match items as I so choose. I love a pop of color almost always and I find that jewelry, like these fabulous turquoise Kendra Scott earrings, can add just the right touch.
Side note: how cute is she? She just captured the day for me. Her black and white shirt read “CARPE DIEM” as she snacked in the food court (famer’s market style) without a care in the world.
