CCE is a lady a lot like me. She loves color, likes funky things but has a classic side as well. However, where we differ, CCE was a much better packer on our trip to New Orleans. For example, she never wore a dress with gym shoes.
(not CCE's actual luggage but a representation of the size of what she packed in...amazing!)
Packing is where I think we could all learn a fashion lesson from CCE. Fill your carry-on with polished basics and a few fun items and you will have an entire trip's worth of outfits that feel fashionable and pulled-together. The benefit of this packing method is you have versatile pieces that mix and match together giving you more outfit options without taking up a lot of suitcase space.
CCE's fun item, although not this identical top, was a striped neon yellow and white knit top.

And when I was packing for my recent road trip, guess who I was inspired by? CCE! She helped me avoid the pitfalls of tennies and dresses...because apparently this is not obvious to one Mrs. CC. Needless to say, my travel wardrobe was much improved thanks to CCE.
