By now you know that I just spent five jam-packed days in France with Saint James. It’s funny. The brand’s PR director reached out, encouraging us to pack light as we’d been traveling by van. Later she admitted to me that she’d worried most about me as my content is the most fashion-focused of the group. I giggled as I never check. I refuse. It’s not because I am just super cool and low-maintenance… I just hate, hate, hate waiting for my bag… and am always a little bit paranoid that I’m going to get robbed when I check.
I like packing for these sorts of trips though… I look at it as a fun challenge. You have to really love everything you pack… and everything has to easily mix + match. (Especially with stripes. Besides this blue and white tee, I packed three other Saint James tees). I realized after the fact that I packed a LOT of J.Crew. My panama hat, this army jacket (definitely a wardrobe MVP – I wore it the entire trip), these espadrilles… I forgot how many of my favorite things come from them! This isn’t everything that I packed, and I didn’t get around to taking photos of all of my outfits, but this should give you a good idea… and then I made a collage at the end of the post to break it all down!
I wore the above outfit to dinner on the first night. This polka dot dress is pretty old now (it’s from C. Wonder!!) but the one I linked to above is pretty similar.
I wore this dress in yesterday’s post – ha! I told you I have been getting a lot of wear out of it. It’s now on sale (available here + here) and is just so versatile… you can dress it up (or as is the case), dress it down!
The bulk of what I wore is linked in the collage below… enjoy! 😉
