Travel Style + A Giveaway

I'm excited to be partnering with Marshalls today to share with you my personal travel style + an amazing giveaway! They recently reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in participating in a spring shopping challenge - never one to turn down an opportunity to put my bargain-hunting hat on, I quickly said yes.  They provided me with a gift card and tasked me with visiting my local store in search of merchandise that would surprise me with new possibilities.  Thankfully, I happened to visit on a day when they had just put tons of new arrivals out on the floor, so it was perfect timing.

I browsed through the apparel section first and picked up this Tencel chambray shirt (a spring staple) and this jacquard patterned skirt.  Both were pieces I knew I could wear with other items I already owned and they were each less than $25!  From there, I moved onto the shoe department and I was so happy to find a comfortable pair of espadrille wedges that weren't too high - I could walk for miles in these!  The nude leather makes them so versatile and I like that they zip up the back so I don't have to fuss with the buckles every time I put them on.

My last stop was the handbag & luggage section, where I picked up a Kate Spade crossbody bag, which I was fully intending on purchasing...until I spotted an entire set of DVF Luggage in this chic design (all sizes were under $100!).  As much as I loved the designer handbag, I realized that the more practical purchase was a new suitcase, because mine nearly fell apart the last time I traveled.  Though I was tempted to buy all three pieces, I knew I only really needed a medium-sized option for short trips into the city and some upcoming family vacations.  

Here's a breakdown of what these items were worth versus what I actually paid:

Per Se Chambray Shirt - Retail Price $49 / Paid $24.99
Katherine Barclay Jacquard Skirt - Retail Price $38 / Paid $19.99
Tahari Flaunt Espadrille Wedges - Retail Price $89 / Paid $39.99
DVF Adieu Suitcase - Retail Price $320 / Paid $89.99
