Minimalist Travel: One Week in Texas

If you follow me on Instagram you know that we recently traveled to Texas for a week to visit family and friends. Traveling with Jack and all of his baby things, I knew I needed to keep my packing to a minimum so I decided to stick to a simple, neutral color palate that could easily mix and match.

This is what I wore for our week in Texas:

LOFT Jumpsuit / Target Scarf / Target Sandals (Similar) / Madewell Ring

J.Crew Tank / J.Crew Shorts (Similar) / Target Scarf / Merona Sandals (Similar)

J.Crew Top (Similar) / J.Crew Shorts (Similar) / Merona Sandals (Similar) / BaubleBar Necklace / Madewell Ring

Mossimo Dress / Merona Sandals (Similar) / Madewell Necklace

Boob Design Dress c/o / Madewell Vest / Merona Sandals (Similar) / Madewell Ring

LOFT Tank / Target Jeans (Similar) / Merona Belt / Merona Sandals (Similar) / Madewell Necklace / Madewell Ring

J.Crew Tank / Target Jeans (Similar) / Target Scarf / Merona Sandals (Similar) / Merona Belt

We spent the first half of the week in Galveston with family, and the second half in Austin with friends. We knew it would be cooler than usual thanks to some spring storms, but since it’s always humid in Texas this time of year I stuck with light, breezy pieces that would be comfortable and wouldn’t show sweat. I kept the jewelry simple, too, sticking to just a few delicate gold necklaces and my favorite funky ring. Overall I felt really good about what I brought with me!

    Wow, less than 20 pieces?! Major Kudos, Natalie! Those Merona sandals got a lot of use on your trip- they must be super comfy!

      Yes! They’re the best! Sadly they’re almost worn through because I’ve been wearing them constantly since I got them last year.
