Creating a Travel Friendly Wardrobe with Gudrun Sjödén

Disclosure: Special thanks to Gudrun Sjödén for sponsoring this post. 

I'm always on a quest for comfortable fashions that will carry me from work to play and fit my very active lifestyle, clothes that are multi-purpose and can be dressed up or down with accessories, clothes that travel well. I've found an answer in Gudrun Sjödén, a Sweden-based company that creates unique designs featuring natural materials – for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. Vibrant and sustainable, this is a brand that honors women who appreciate individual style and comfortable, organic materials. 

I visited LA last week, and my trip plans ranged from a hike in Runyon Canyon to afternoon tea at an ultra luxe hotel in Beverly Hills. I hate checking in suitcases, so I'd have to fit both my clothing and my daughter's clothing in a small carry-on. I needed to pack items that would be comfortable and versatile. I ended up packing three Gudrun Sjödén dresses, a shawl/scarf,  a pair of sandals, and a dresser pair of low heels. 

The fact that these super comfy green sandals from the summer collection only grew comfier as time went on was key - we walked so much on this trip! My kids and I laughed every time I received a compliment on these sandals, too: five people complimented my shoes, from a surfer dude in Huntington Beach to a chocolatier in Beverly Hills - everyone seemed to love my sandals!

I wore my Timjan dress to both a fancy afternoon tea in Beverly Hills as well as while enjoying a day of fun at Disneyland. Lightweight, with a tiny dot print, I was able to dress it up with some retro heels then return back to casual by slipping into my sandals.

Finally, I brought along the lovely Medina dress. Soft, sleeveless and airy, this was the perfect pick for a day of sightseeing at Universal Studios.

Tthe pattern was groovy enough for a photo opp in front of the Brady Bunch house!

Some of my other fave picks from Gudrun Sjödén's spring and summer collections:

This soft and lovely linen cotton jacket...
Linen/cotton jacket

This lovely scarf/shawl (I have the meadow green version)...
“Piri-piri” shawl in eco-cotton

And this comfy, striped dress. Once you step into a Gudrun Sjödén eco-cotton dress you will never want to slip out of it!
