One Dress Three Ways

I’ve really honed my packing skills in the past year and am proud of it as I was previously a serial over-packer. A position that required 70% travel as well as designing a restaurant project in CA requiring many quick 2 day cross-country trips taught my to pack smart and travel light. I was really put to the test this past week with a 9 day, 3 country trip, including a photo shoot for Charmed-mag and attending a wedding with a weekend full of festivities. Finding different ways to style staples has become a favorite tool to keep packing focused and under control. Here’s how I styled a simple black dress from JCrew throughout the trip.

Sightseeing in Paris.  Yes, sneakers with a dress is touristy, but miles of walking on this bionic knee give me no choice. Nike kicks, Coach Bag (cross body strap was a lifesaver), scarf-old, JCrew Bracelet, C.Wonder Bracelet, earrings-old
