No matter where in the world I am, considering what will make it in my suitcase is something I think about days in advance before departing for a trip. Having outfits that make getting dressed in the morning fun give me a little spiritual boost.
I read a quote from Vivienne Westwood the other day... it was something along the lines of playing with the many facets of your personality when choosing what to wear - the dark side and the light - and I personally like to combine the two when making wardrobe decisions. I never want to feel too sweet, but I'm not exactly a goth girl either.
This particular outfit was for a day of running errands at home and the brands I'm wearing here all seem to have that wanderlust meets street style luxe vibe down to a science. Read a bit more about 3 brands on my radar at the end of the post!
Why I love them: Every piece is easy-to-wear and feels like something the most adorable instagram jetsetters would fill their suitcases with. I look to Tobi everytime I'm needing to add to my travel wardrobe and always love every single piece from the rompers to the maxis to the separates and basics too.
Why I love them: from the brand website - "Xinh" /sinh/ means cute & pretty in Vietnamese; not the kind of beauty that is striking and bold, but a more charming, subtle, quiet beauty that requires observance and presence to fully understand. When I came across this brand at a local market in Nashville I was immediately obsessed, each bag is so uniquely special.
Why I love them: the down to earth glamour is so Oui We! The hats are all breezy, boho-chic summer vibes. In the 90's he made a hat that could be rolled up for travel and then spring back to its original shape undamaged. Now that's a guy that gets wanderlusting!
What brands are you guys swooning over lately? Anything special I should know about?!
