Packing Light - The Denim Skirt


I probably don’t need to tell you that ‘packing light’ means you’ll be wearing the same thing over and over as you travel. However, it doesn’t have to appear that way to everyone else. Not as long as you have versatile items to mix and match.

I almost always pack a light denim skirt. It pairs well with practically E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. It’s a nice option for going somewhere warm and easy enough to layer on sweaters, jackets & boots if it starts to get chilly.

This skirt from Zara is one of my favorites. I call it my 'Kim K West'. Obvious, right? The faux burst at the seams gives the illusion of that extra thick thick.

You can get some really nice angles in it too with a good squeeze and tuck, if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, Zara no longer carries this skirt, but here are a few options that have a similar look -

I like pairing crop tops and bodysuits with my denim because they're light weight, easy to layer, and are typically flattering in all the right places. I mean, if you're looking to turn heads, look no further.

I'm only interested in body suits with a thong in the back, otherwise the lines show through when wearing skinny jeans or anything fitted. No lines are my bottom line.

Here are a few on my wish list.
