Capsule #3 / Outfit 4
Before you ask me how I did my hair, let me assure you, I have no idea. I can’t french braid worth beans (working on that) but I somehow managed to make it look like I did. Yeah … baffled over here.
I loosely followed this tutorial though. To me, the key was clipping the front section of my hair out of the way first + creating the braid + then coming back to that clipped section and teasing it/clipping it in place to smooth over any bumps and add volume.
Birks (comfort) + backpack (hands free) = perfect vacation / sightseeing outfit.
I’d been wanting a backpack for summer + travel, but I couldn’t find one that had a low profile — I like small bags because I hate it when my bag bumps into people. Enter this streamlined backpack from Hobo. I’m obsessed with it can’t wait to show you all the cool ways to rock a backpack this summer.
Do you think you’d ever wear one?

dying over here! been searching for the “pefect” backpack…(again with the mom comment)…but perfect solution for a diaper bag also!! haha too cute! love that tank and so mad AE doesnt have it in a small anymore! Also, for razor back tanks do you wear sports bras? or how do you accomplish the no bra strap look for summer? Loving your blog and love how each outfit is already posted first thing in the morning!! =)
Hi Amber! Always love hearing from you! :) I have an awesome strapless bra — nude colored + super comfy — that I wear with most of my summer stuff. However, I bought it like 5 years ago and have never found a similar style since! It has a different shape than most strapless bras so it doesn’t scooch down. It’s about to wear out, so I’m on the hunt for another one. xo Caroline
Ha, I love that about the hair! There have been so many times when someone compliments my updo and I reply, “I don’t know how it happened” and then can never recreate it again. Your summer casual look is awesome!
I just wanted to drop by and say that I L-O-V-E your blog. The capsule idea is genius and I’m definitely going to try it. Will let you know how it goes :) Thanks for the inspiration.
I’ve been a high end backpack person for twenty plus years :) nothing else seems to feel right to me!
