With Spring quickly approaching but winter hanging on, it’s important to have items in your closet that will work with each other under any circumstances. You know I like to put together travel-ready capsule wardrobes and this is one from Veronica Beard.

It’s windy and chilly and this look will keep the cold out. The Merlin patchwork Dickey jacket makes me look cool but keeps me warm. I chose it slightly oversized to throw over my shoulders. The Carly Kick-flare Jean in Ecru is a nod to spring and Delia suede clogs are a comfy flashback for me.

Now about that striped button-down! I fell in love with its versatility. It has such great detail. Left untucked, it has this asymmetrical hem, tucked in it looks like a preppy shirt. A brilliant travel companion! Pop the collar and you’re good to go. It comes in white as well.

When spring is in the air this is my go-to look. You know I love to mix prints and a stripe goes with everything, my past blog post Mixing Prints and Patterns testifies to that. In this case, the paisley skirt was the perfect partner. I paired it with my reversible Valentino belt, matching clutch, and my platform slides.

Travel tip. When you’re just using a carry-on like I always do put your cosmetics in a clutch or evening bag it will serve as double duty.

It all works together. The Carley kick-flare jeans are stretchy and comfortable and so are these heels. I always take special care with the height of my heels and these boots are just right. Same clutch in that Carmel shade (yes, I’m old-fashioned I still match my purse and shoes).

Back to pattern play. This striped top makes a whole other outfit (make sure to add a belt)
But…..check out this jacket. You know Veronica Beard is famous for them and this is no exception! Are you catching the puff on these sleeves?!!

The gorgeous Nitza dress and the Cooke leather Dickey jacket is not to be ignored. Who says boho style can’t be turned into city style? I chose gold accents, bangles, and hoop earrings that I used for quite a few of these looks. I’m also getting a lot of mileage out of this clutch.

Same dress different day. Same clogs different look. Packing jewelry is easy and a great way to change a look. A few silver pieces and a straw bag brought this look right into the market. But how about that hat! Harder to pack but worth the effort. Here is a similar one in a brown color from Veronica Beard.

Packing tip. Put the hat upside down in your luggage, surround the brim with this dress, and pack your PJs in the crown. They don’t take up as much room as you think.

Baby, it’s cold outside. Don’t forget the Avia Cashmere Turtleneck.

Style tip. Wear tights or leggings under a dress. No one will ever know!

Happy days are comfy days, regardless of the weather. Packing light and not worrying about your luggage is definitely another bonus.
