Packing List for Santa Monica

Packing for LA is always a joy — and compact! Only a carry-on required (lay everything flat and you’re good for a week worth of outfits). I like to stay in Santa Monica where it’s beachy and so much more laid back then LA proper, which means packing extra sweaters and/or jackets since it’s warm summer weather during the day but chilly at night.

Day 1: Airport chic

{American Apparel leggings, Peppermint top, SEE sunglasses, H&M Stacked bracelets}

Day 2: Promenade Rock Ready

{Ya Ya top, Nicole Miller Indego Africa shorts, H&M Tassle earrings, Forever 21 stacked bracelets, Enzo Angiolini pumps}

Day 3: High wasted fun

{Jockey top, American Apparel high-wasted jean shorts, thrift store necklace, Cartommier jacket}

Day 4: Orangely girly

{Express dress, ASOS vest}

Day 5: Romptastic

{Alice Roi romper, YOOX jacket, LOFT sandals}

Day 6 + 7: Printed out

{LEFT: H&M shorts, Millau top, Banana Republic necklace, Belle by Sigerson Morrison flats. RIGHT: Maxi dress, Alice + Olivia belt}

Beach Ready:

{LOFT sweater top, Roxy swimsuit cover-up, Marni for H&M sunglasses}
