Suitcase Diaries: Three Key Pieces

When you’re living out of a suitcase, sometimes the easiest way to get dressed is to simply pair your three favorite pieces together…

Tomorrow’s the big day; I can’t believe I’m moving to New York!

I was particularly productive over the weekend: I shipped my out-of-season shoes and such home, donated a lot to the American Red Cross and  successfully purged my jewelry collection. For the next month, now, I have just two suitcases to survive on, which should make for an interesting batch of outfit posts.

My recent recipe for an easy, wear-anywhere outfit entails this chunky sweater, my boyfriend jeans and a pair of statement pumps. They’ll be in heavy rotation when we hit the ground running in NYC!

Prada sunglasses | thrifted Gucci clutch (and here’s the story behind that)
