I’m often inspired by my surroundings. When I was traveling last week, I stayed at one of my fave NYC hotels: Mondrian Soho. I’m obsessed with their decor. It’s whimsically chic while exuding modern luxury. If you saw on my Instagram (@sydnesummer), the rooms have this gorgeous China Blue pattern, set off by glossy white furnishings.
I was inspired by the color scheme when using my satin blazer to glam up distressed denim. Blue sandals added a bit of height while a painterly clutch brought a playful factor to the outfit. Packing classic pieces, like a tuxedo jacket, are a great way to spruce up your travel wardrobe. Can you believe I only used a carry-on for my 7-night East Coast trip?!
