I am back home today after a whirlwind quick
to Sacramento this weekend.
I have mentioned before here
just how much I love road trips
even when they are just a one night
like this weekend.
There is just something about getting out
to new vastness
that renews my
soul and spirit
like a great big exhale.

For me a great
is always made even better
that meet the needs of car travel
as well as
no matter where
might take us!
So for me
Road Trip Outfit
has to be comfortable
easy to style up or down
depending on the destination!
I was ever so happy with my chosen pieces for this trip!
Since we have my daughter's wedding coming up this May
I have cut back on my wardrobe spending
to ensure having some extras that I know will be coming up for the big day and before.
I have made cutting back and working with what I have
while just sprinkling some new inexpensive pieces
into my wardrobe
I firmly believe
true personal style
does not have to come with a big budget.
So in the coming months
you can expect me to be sharing
additions to update my
I am ever so happy with my recent TJ Max purchase of this
Free People jacket for under $30
I love the back detail
the peplum cut
that layers over my long tunics
creating a flattering and slimming silhouette.
My alpaca fedora hat from
was an investment piece I made on one of my trips to Napa Valley
I know it will continue to serve me for years.
I know it's really fall when I can finally wear it again!
A great hat is always one of my travel
It always ensures style polish
without having to worry about styling my hair.
I found this Navajo inspired wrap at
I wanted to add some color to my
wardrobe of neutral solids
this piece handled the job perfectly.
It's a fabulous bang for my wardrobe buck
coming in again
A blanket wrap is also perfect for car rides as well!
You can see how some great basics
can be quickly be style upgraded with some
well chosen pieces!
And they don't have to always be investment pieces!
I added a trendy ankle boot again from Target
for under $50
to immediately upgrade my existing pieces
like these NYDJ from last year.
I always travel with a nice flat shoe
that I can slip on and off in the car
plus a dressier shoe
like these ankle boots
that I can instantly dress up any casual outfit!
When I travel
I like to choose one accessory wardrobe
for this trip it was definitely my turquoise
with one bold charm bracelet thrown in for good measure!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
