If you’ve read the August issue of Elle, you’ve already seen my two-page advertorial with Downy. If not, click here or here to go behind-the-scenes. This week, Downy flew me out to New York for their Summer Scent Soirée with Elle & Style Coalition. Since I was only in town for two days, I packed light. Translation? Flirty dresses that roll up in my suitcase and easily transition from day to night.
Day to Night 1: Zara dress
Thanks to the pencil skirt shape, this dress doesn’t show creases, making it perfect for travel. For day, I balanced out the short hemline with ballet flats and spiced it up at night with sparkly accessories.

Day to Night 2: French Connection Wild Fire dress
I knew I wanted to wear this dress to the big event. The print makes such a stylish statement! For day, I added a preppy vibe with a striped sweater and stayed comfy in small wedges. For night, I played with mixed prints, piled on the bracelets and added a platform wedge.

My travel tip is sticking to the same palette. Everything I brought was in the pink, nude, black and white color family. That way I could easily interchange my looks, and spice it up with statement jewelry, which is much smaller to pack.
