WHAT I WORE: TEXAS IN MARCH

Just got back from Texas and I DID NOT WEAR EVERYTHING I HAD PACKED in my carry on. The weather was a little cooler than normal/expected and that meant layering! I mean for a Michigander in Texas, the weather felt AMAZING! Warmer than home, which made me thankful! I also went shopping while in Texas, and I’ll highlight those items that I did wear for outfits during the day. I honestly did not take many photos during my trip, which was nice. I can 100% guarantee though these are the outfits I did wear, and I also have to add THEY WERE ALL COMFORTABLE! For individual item specifics, check out my WHAT I AM PACKING post.

One of my favorite parts of travel are the views from the plane, especially a sunrise.

DAILY OUTFITS

DAY ONE (TRAVEL DAY): SATURDAY March 2nd

Hello travel day! I wanted a COMFORTABLE outfit to travel in and to start I wore leggings. I bought black Patagonia Centered Crop Legging’s from Backcountry. My sister highly recommended these leggings after she bought them for her trip to New Zealand. I have worn these a few times now and they are VERY comfortable. I love cropped leggings, or 7/8 leggings since I have shorter legs that they make the PERFECT length.

I wore Madewell’s Northside Vintage Black Tee with my leggings. I have been looking a good tee to bring to Europe for a capsule wardrobe and decided on this tee. So soft and comfy! Obviously had to test them out prior to Europe. I have been wearing them in outfits and plan tees are great for packing on a carry on because they can be layered for multiple looks.

I have had my jean jacket for probably seven years, so my exact jean jacket is not available. My jean jacket that I plan on bringing is from American Eagle. A very similar jean jacket (cropped, color, style) is this Old Navy New Medium Authentic Denim Jacket. Jean jackets should be in everyone’s closet. I specifically like a cropped jean jacket because I am a fan of high waisted items, and I like the way it looks with dresses. I potentially want an oversized jean jacket, but have not made the plunge yet. Another similar jean jacket can be found here.

No matter where you go on your travels, walking is always something that is going to happen. I bought a pair of Allbirds Wool Runners in Natural White, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM! If anyone is looking for a pair of comfortable walking shoes, let’s be real I do not run, these are great! I am super interested in the Wool Loungers and Tree Skippers, as well, so one of these days I will get those too.

Layered necklaces are all the rage right now and have been for over a year (I mean my grandma always wore layered necklaces at least ever since I was born). I love the pendant layered necklaces, and when I came across these Target Chain Link with Coin Charms Layered Necklace I couldn’t pass them up.

An every day lipstick is also a must. If I had unlimited space I probably would have a million lipsticks, but a red and more neutral color will cover all the bases. Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in 9 to 5 is perfect for that neutral color. It is a perfect shade of Mauve.

I failed to write about the purse that I was going to bring to Texas. I did change my mind a few different times, but I used a new minimal black crossbody from JustFab with my outfit.

DAY TWO: SUNDAY March 3rd

A great Amazon find are these pair of black Linen Joggers. These joggers are great for travel days, eating, and eating. I bought my size in petite, to give the pants a more cropped look. In addition to traveling these will make great every day or work pants.

I potentially want an oversized jean jacket, but have not made the plunge yet. Another similar jean jacket can be found here.

I have worn these Mossimo Ankle Strap Sandals all over the place, most recently to Nashville. They were the only pair of sandals I bought because they were perfect for any outfit I brought. They do not have the best support, and still researching for cute and supportive sandals for Europe, but these are good enough. They are at least three or four years old, so no longer available online, but similar strappy sandals can be found here, and here.

I obviously LOVE leather earrings. I mean, they are pretty much shown in every single one of my blog posts. I wore a pair of large Nickel & Suede Olive Grove Leather Earrings.

An every day lipstick is also a must. If I had unlimited space I probably would have a million lipsticks, but a red and more neutral color will cover all the bases. Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in 9 to 5 is perfect for that neutral color. It is a perfect shade of Mauve.

I used a new minimal black crossbody from JustFab with my outfit.

DAY THREE: MONDAY March 4th

I absolutely did not plan on wearing this particular outfit, but it was a chilly day in Texas and wanted to wear warm layers.

I was not expecting 70 degree weather, more like 50’s and 60’s so I threw in a sweater into the mix of my carry on. However it was in the 40’s. I wore my new Topshop Pointelle Ball Sleeve Sweater I recently purchased from Nordstrom. This purple/pink Topshop sweater had been in my Nordstrom cart since the Fall, but I had been eyeing a sale before plunging to purchase it. I looked one day and it was over half off. Since I bought it on sale it is unfortunately no longer on sale. Similar sweaters can be found here, and here.

I LOVE this utility jacket from Target! I have had it for a few years now. Jackets are a great way to make more diverse outfits, or a nice addition for a Spring outfit (or Fall). Since this particular utility jacket is a few years old, it is no longer available, but similar utility jackets can be found here, and here. A utility jacket is a great addition to anyone’s closet for a comfortable and stylish look.

If I need jeans, I again am trying to go for comfort. I packed a pair of Super Skinny High Jeggings from H&M. They are so stretchy that they make them one of my favorite pair of jeans ever! I also enjoy H&M’s Skinny High Ankle Jeans that are only $9.99!

I wanted a pair of comfortable booties. I have done a lot of research and finally purchased these Sam Edelman Petty Suede Ankle Boots. I have read reviews on a lot of websites and loved the low heel and look of these booties. I recently just sprayed these since they are suede and could come across rain. Make sure to always spray your suede shoes for protection.

I have been all about hoops lately, and they can go great with numerous outfits, which is always a plus for me! These gold Boohoo Oval Hoop Earrings are no longer in stock, but similar earrings can be found here, and here.

An every day lipstick is also a must. If I had unlimited space I probably would have a million lipsticks, but a red and more neutral color will cover all the bases. Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in 9 to 5 is perfect for that neutral color. It is a perfect shade of Mauve.

I used a new minimal black crossbody from JustFab with my outfit.

DAY FOUR: TUESDAY March 5th

I wore my Red Ditsy Nora Thong Bodysuit from AFRM. I purchased this bodysuit through Nordstrom, but is no longer available through Nordstrom. I do safety pin the bodysuit if I do not want the neckline too low, otherwise you will certainly need a cute lace bralette or tape. I wore a black bralette underneath.

If I need jeans, I again am trying to go for comfort. I packed a pair of Super Skinny High Jeggings from H&M. They are so stretchy that they make them one of my favorite pair of jeans ever! I also enjoy H&M’s Skinny High Ankle Jeans that are only $9.99!

I truly feel like a red lip is always a must, so you should never leave for a trip without red lipstick. I have been using Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick and their matte red is Girls’ Night.

I used a new minimal black crossbody from JustFab with my outfit.

DAY FIVE: WEDNESDAY March 6th

These olive American Eagle High-Waisted Palazzo Pants are extremely comfortable and stylish, and will be useful for travel days, eating, and more eating.

This JKY® by Jockey Women’s Retro Vibes Cropped T-shirt from Target is THE ultimate lounge tee AND able to dress up. I love high waisted joggers, sweat pants, etc., so this tee is always perfectly paired with them. This exact tee is out of stock, but similar cropped tee’s can be found here, and here.

I obviously LOVE leather earrings. I mean, they are pretty much shown in every single one of my blog posts, so how could I not grab a few pairs for my outfits.  I wore these large Nickel & Suede White Cork Leather Earrings.

I truly feel like a red lip is always a must, so you should never leave for a trip without red lipstick. I have been using Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick and their matte red is Girls’ Night.

I bought this mini circle striped bag from Fossil while in Texas at an outlet mall. This bag was too cute to pass up! I do not have a circle bag, so this was a perfect addition to my purse collection.

DAY SIX (TRAVEL DAY): THURSDAY March 7th

These black Fabletics Petal Capri Leggings were my first pair of Fabletics leggings. I would say that the material is similar to the Patagonia Centered Crop Leggings, maybe a little thinner. They are over two years old, and are in great condition still. I love the leg detail, and that was the reason why I bought them. Either these leggings, or the Patagonia Centered Crop Leggings above will make great travel or lounge pants for my trip. Similar Fabletics leggings can be found here.

I bought this city side snap hoodie from Aerie, on sale, while in Texas. Unfortunately I was not able to find the hoodie online. It looks like others have sold theirs on Poshmark. This sweatshirt is so comfortable, and i personally loved the snaps on the side because I love high waisted leggings and these allow me to open the sides to show off my waist. Similar sweatshirts can be found here, and here.
