back to basics

Lately my mind has been on paring down to the essential basics so I reached back into my hard drive and found some old but good inspiration from a New York trip I took this time last year. My favorite slashed-up leggings (which are now available here) and my favorite white shirt and my favorite hat (which I lost when I left it behind on the airplane and am still super depressed about as I have yet to find a suitable replacement). Packing such versatile and well-loved pieces is absolutely ideal when traveling, especially if you like to pack light like me (struggling with large pieces of luggage and/or paying excessive checked baggage fees are the bane of my existence). The leggings have a cool woven cut-out pattern running along the back and the shirt is super sheer. So nice and airy when it’s hot and humid out!

Sheer white button-up, vintage. Slashed lace-up leggings, Tripp NYC. Leopard-print pumps, Marco Santi (Sole Society).
