SUPER C

Hey lovelies, happy Thursday!

Coming to you guys with a short one to share this look I wore in NOLA back in March.

We were greeted by perfect weather in Louisiana, which allowed me to pull off this sweater/shorts combo. I'm usually not one to mix red and black but for some reason I really liked the blend in this outfit. Taking advantage of the slight chill breeze we had in the mornings, I threw on this thrifted "grandma-chic" sweater that could easily be wrapped around my waist when the temps picked up.

Shorts and sneakers are sort of my go-to when traveling because they allow me to move at my own pace and explore at ease. What are your travel outfit essentials? Let me know in the comments below!

xx,
Chels.

  1. The grandma chic sweater looks wonderful. I think the color combo works well on you- I love the contrast.

    I always bring a pair of flats when I travel. I actually usually leave all heels behind unless I know I'm going out somewhere fancy. And then my YSL large shopper tote is a must. I only travel with carry-on, so it fits all my toiletries, laptop, camera, etc and then I re-use it as my purse at the destination.

    1. Wait but like #actualpackingGOALS.

      I definitely learned the heels lesson a while back. It took me some time to accept the fact that I simply WAS NOT going to wear them but now I have to tackle all my other over-packing issues. Like...packing a million sunnies for a weekend trip or three extra pairs of shorts "just in case", for example. Sounds like I'm in need of divine intervention but I'm confident I'll get there some day.

      Love the tote idea, definitely trying it on my next trip!

  3. Love this look! We probably have the same look in traveling. The most important on my travel outfit is a comfy sandals and a jacket. :)

    1. Totally agree! A jacket is essential even if you're going to the warmest of destinations because:

      A- Night chills
      B- Airplane AC
