On Saturday night I got home from Alt Summit. The moment I got off the plane I went into recovery mode since I’d been going, going, going for five days straight. I went from packing and preparing for my five day absence (which is no small feat), to becoming a sponge during all the classes and soaking up every bit of advice and knowledge I could, to becoming a sales person while introducing myself to everyone I met and selling my brand to potential partners, to a party animal til all hours of the night. My energy level never seemed to wane. But the moment I got home I crashed from the high — I could feel a cold coming on and all I wanted to do is sleep (and I did). 
So now that my temporary hibernation is over, it’s time to share my outfits from the last week, which will include tutorials for all my handmade clothing. Get excited!
This was my travel day on the way to Salt Lake City. I had planned to change once we got to the hotel, but checking in and registering for the conference put us a little behind so I ended up wearing it all afternoon through the classes and up until dinner. It turned out to be perfect because I was basically wearing a blanket around all day, which was much less awkward than actually wearing a blanket around, but with all the same benefits. That’s my kind of travel style.

  • Hi Merrick! I'm curious what you do about socks with your cut out ankle boots. I have the same ones, but I haven't tried anything other than black dress socks, which defeats the purpose of the cut out I think. I've seen them online with patterned socks, but that's outside my box…I may try it down the road, but I notice here that you seem that figured out something that works well. Do you mind to share what it is?

    • You could try no show socks, they are cut super low as not to show with ballet flat type shoes.

    • I just go without socks, but the no-show socks are definitely a good idea if you're worried about blisters or cold feet!

  • I love the top and cardigan! The perfect travel outfit!

  • love it! looking super awesome.

    xo, rn

  • Perfect 🙂 Looks so comfy and cute!

  • Love it!!! You look so adorably comfy!

  • I love this outfit! It's so simple and comfy, definitely a great travel outfit! I love your bag, too!

  • I love these sweaters – they are so comfy and like you said like wrapping yourself in a giant blanket. Hotel conference rooms are always so cold and this would be so functional and cute!


  • I love that outfit mix!
