3 Weeks in a Carry-On (with International Travel)

I still felt like I had so many options and that I always had the right thing to wear.

Run, don’t walk — Freda Salvador is having their Friends & Family sale and I’ve got early access for you! Get 20% off the pieces included in the sale with code NATALIEFF20 and use the code as many times as you’d like (you do not need to be a new customer for the discount to apply).

This is truly my favorite and go-to shoe brand so I pretty much love everything they make, but here are my personal favorites — and why I love them — to help you with your shopping…

BROOKE BOOT: A pretty perfect boot if you ask me — lightweight, water resistant and available in several beautiful colors. I got the Brown Suede earlier this year for my trip to London and they were great for walking around all day. Looking forward to wearing them more now that the weather is cooling down!

WEAR OXFORD: These are a new addition to my fall shoe line up and I’m so excited about them. So classic and cool with a modern + feminine twist.

EMI LUG COMBAT BOOT: Combat boots can sometimes feel too heavy or intense to me, but these are so lightweight and the almond shaped toe adds a feminine touch that I love.

ELBA PENNY LOAFER: These dreamy loafers are new for fall, and I’m obsessed with the green “Bark Suede Combo”

ADRIA PADDED STRAP HEEL: I have these in black and finally wore them out a few weeks ago. They have a nice sturdy block heel, and I love that they can be dressed up with a slip dress or paired with a casual pair of jeans.

TASH D’ORSAY MOCCASIN: I don’t have these personally because I got the WEAR Oxfords instead, but several of my friends have these and love them. I’ve tried them on in person and they’re so comfortable! A modern take on a classic loafer look.

JUANA SLINGBACK MOCCASIN: I also don’t have these, but I tried them on when I was in their store in Marin earlier this year and have been considering getting them ever since. They’re definitely bold, but I think they make a great statement (and they were very comfy, too!).

JAMES SHEARLING SLIPPER: These are the slippers I wear every single day. Worth every penny!
