Happy Monday friends! To kick off the Chicago posts, today I’m sharing what I wore while I was traveling. I like to keep things pretty minimal when I’m away, and for this trip I ended up packing 13 pieces of clothing. It gave me a lot of options to choose from, but still let me just take a carry-on bag, because who wants to stand in the check-in line? For travel I like to stick to a few basics that I know will be comfortable and easy to wear, and I also like to throw in a fun piece or two to mix things up. Staples in my travel wardrobe include stretchy jeans, striped tees, comfy sweaters, sneakers, and a crossbody bag. Read on to the end to find my Chicago travel vlog which features three more outfits!

For this look, I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking, so I opted for my most comfortable jeans and a simple striped tee.
For a layer of warmth, I added my classic swing style trench. It gives the look a little more polish without being too stuffy. I also added my favorite gauzy scarf and my watch to make sure I got where I needed to be on time.
My floral Rifle Paper Co. Keds kept my feet happy while walking all over the city, and my vintage cross-body bag kept my valuables safe and near to hand while I did some shopping.

While I was away, I thought it would be fun to create an outfit diary and travel vlog. I had so much fun making this video, and I really hope you enjoy following me around Chicago and Evanston! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already!
