Summer 2017 pre-sale picks: backpacking edition

Jun 3, 2017Fashion, Style11 comments

Hello lovelies,

I am currently preparing my backpacking capsule, and since I spend a lot of time on internet picking up pieces, I thought I’d share them with you.

I like my shopping short and efficient (cf my article here). So before going to stores I check the collections online to see if there is anything close to what I am looking for… Ironically, I am a blogger who dreads shopping ?

As you may guess, I can’t take a lot of clothes for our long trip. I need pieces that are summery, versatile, practical, comfortable and yet cute… and it all needs to fit in a backpack!

It’s been a bit of an adjustment shopping and dressing lately. Since I don’t have to go to corporate meetings or to an office I can finally dress exactly how I want: casual, carefree, bohemian chic… Surprisingly, it has been a struggle after eight years of dressing the part: office friendly, lady boss, casual Friday chic… It’s kind of creating new brain reflexes of dressing and shopping casually for the daily life. I always like to dress even when I am staying at home, it makes me feel active and productive. I kept this habit from my last job where I got to work from home sometimes, I always made sure to be prepared for a last minute meeting at any given minute. Anyway, I am just sharing and absolutely not complaining, I am beyond happy of my current situation!

Back to shopping! After the market haul where I got a beautiful straw bag, sandals and a pouch, I need to buy:

  • Cheap anti UV sunglasses: I always buy H&M or similar when I am traveling because I don’t want to risk losing or sitting on a designer pair of glasses ?  I am crushing on the ones below, especially the pink design ?
  • Black confortable sandals or espadrilles
  • A maxi dress
  • A wrap romper
  • A one piece swimsuit
  • A bralette swimsuit
  • The perfect high-rise cut off shorts. I will probably end up buying them at American Eagle Outfitters, this is where I usually get my slim jeans and shorts, it’s the only brand that often fits my figure: small waist and full hips and bootie.
I am actually waiting for June sales before hitting the stores! ?

Meanwhile you can score free shipping with H&M on orders over $40 with code 0040.
