Travel Outfit Day 2 ::  Celine Sunglasses // Zara Shirt // Saint Laurent Monogram Clutch // Modern Citizen Open Trench // Acne Studios Adriana Grain White Sneakers

This sleeveless trench by Modern Citizen has a been a staple for traveling this Fall season.  With  temperatures fluctuating from airports to indoor/outdoor, this trench has been a easy layering piece that goes with everything!

Finally, my trip is never complete without a sweet treat.  A simple sugary glaze from the Doughnut Vault.  Light, fluffy and surprisingly delicious.
