Suitcases and backpacks

Living out of suitcases for almost 3 weeks now makes me really appreciate what the girls who participate in the "30 for 30" challenge do by wearing only 30 items for 30 days. Mixing and matching whatever I can fit into a bag has been a real challenge for me, especially when deciding on what to wear for work. Today brought some of my favorite items together in combinations that have only ever been worn on the weekends (see the last two pictures in the post). By reusing the scarf and shirt combo, and adding more work appropriate shorts with the flats and tights I mixed two of my favorite weekend looks to pick out a work outfit this morning.
H&M top, tights, shorts, BB Dakota via Ebay jacket, Target flats, vintage neck scarf, Marc Jacobs hair clips

  7. Hello! Thank you so much for the visit + follow. I have been reading and loving your blog, adore your style. Thanks so much for the visit + follow!

    As for my photographs they were taken without a flash, but across from a huge window, with tripod, and I used my 50 mm portrait lens, a total god send. xx veronika

  11. That stripe top is really versatile! I know how you feel about living out suitcases - I did 4 months in the UK with one suitcase and it just about broke me.

  18. I remember living out of a suitcase for 6 months. By the end of it I wanted to throw all of my clothes overboard of the ship that I was living on!! haha. But you are rocking these clothes even if you have to keep rewearing them. You are beautiful. And I get over over how nice your photos are! I truly love them. Hope you have a great Friday and weekend!! xo
