I had so much fun in Texas I kinda didn’t want to come back. 
I had a blast surprising my step sister the day of her graduation then saw my other step sister dance in her recital and of course had a bunch of family time. But most important I came to Texas for a week and only brought a carry-on. You heard that right. Me the use to be over packer traveled for a week in a carry-on and it was FABULOUS. I knew what I was wearing everyday and they all went together and they were all interchangeable.

This day I grabbed the main item I wore all week a dress I grabbed from Zara the day I went to ATL with Liz. This piece was the best thing I bought the entire time I was there! I am head over heels for it and luckily I bought it in White as well! The neckline is very hard to see in this outfit because well I threw a crop top on which was way too thick for Dallas but I threw this striped crop top on and made it into a little more interesting dress or skirt top combo!

Stay tuned to see how I wore it the rest of my trip!

  • i’m going to Montana in August and will be doing a lot of hiking, but plan to bring one carry on and a backpack. I’ll have to wear the hiking boots on the plane since they are bulky. I plan to bring one gray skirt for church and eating out; working on getting together a few more matching options.

  • girl, teach me your ways!!! chic AND you packed light.
