I travel routinely for both work and pleasure throughout the year and have gotten to be an A+ carry on traveler (if I do say so myself). The perfect bag for everything you want tucked under your seat and to accompany your roller bag? The Lo & Sons OMG Bag. It was designed by, in my opinion, a sheer genius as it as so many great features that make it perfect for travel and also my go-to gym bag.

First, the adjustable back panel sleeve works to secure the bag over your luggage handle (ready, set, go!) And oh the pockets! I always hate the feeling when you’re digging and riffling through your bag unable to find anything so the fact that this bag has a main compartment with a padded pocket for your laptop, a smaller padded pocket for your iPad or files, 1 small zipper pocket for keys and other valuables and two smaller open pockets for extras is so.darn.convenient. One more yet even? A side pocket for shoes or heels and a front zippered compartment with internal pockets and a key leash.

I wore this outfit as I headed West the other week to Lake Tahoe  (not first before fueling up at my favorite neighborhood caffeine spot). A cozy tee, deconstructed denim and boots or my chucks have become my go-to when traveling. This other Lo & Sons bag is also on my wish list for future travels. What are your travel essentials?

Outfit: Old Navy tee, Gap jeans (on sale!), Lo & Sons OMG Bag (c/o and on sale now), Ray Ban Aviators, Michael Kors watch, Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet, Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers

For some reason last Monday I woke up and dressed like it was Fall…despite the 70+ degree temps. I guess I’m missing my denim and layers routine but my hair instantly went POUF when I stepped outside and by the time I reached work after my 30 minute daily routine heading into work, I was less than thrilled about my outfit choice. Must have had Monday brain I guess? Anyhow I still can’t get enough of this Rebecca Taylor jacket and have kept it in rotation in the office when the AC is blasting.

Did you have a good weekend? I had train troubles to/from Washington D.C. but had a great time visiting my godmother in Georgetown where laughter and amazingly deep sleeps always are common themes.  Happy Monday, all!

Outfit: Joie tank, Rebecca Taylor jacket, Gap jeans, Converse sneakers, Vince Camuto bag (recently seen here), Karen Walker sunglasses

I bought this scalloped Pure Sugar cami after borrowing it from my friend Kristen while in Paris (and promptly after I learned it was under $40!). With New York having cooled off for a quick minute I was able to indulge in wearing pants twice last week – odd how that becomes a novelty after living in New York – certainly different than my summers spent in San Francisco.

I’ve been experiencing severe post-vacation blues the past two weeks so I’m looking forward to having four mini trips set up for the next several weekends (New Jersey! DC! Connecticut! California!) I hope you had a wonderful weekend and in case you haven’t already, don’t forget to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There’s loads of good stuff in there marked down!

Outfit: Pure Sugar cami from Piperlime (love this one, too), Gap jeans (last seen here and on sale now), Helmut Lang blazer, Sophie Hulme bag, Alice + Olivia Dina pumps, BaubleBar x HonestlyWTF necklace, Ray Ban sunglasses
