When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank or acting in her capacity as the official Armi Captain at luxury rental and styling platform Armarium, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

With my summer vacations coming to an end for the season, I thought I’d share the one item I’ve worn the most while traveling the past few months. Trust me—I pack enough for a couple outfit changes throughout the day. You have to think daytime look and evening look, so when it comes to my clothing, I always have quite the assortment. I have to say, though, that my Maryam Nassir Zadeh mules earned the most spotlight time during my vacations this summer. Now I never travel without them; they are the perfect shoes and can transitional easily from shopping during the day to a romantic dinner date at night. I highly recommend investing in a pair, and I can vouch that they will quickly become your favorite shoes to bring on vacation. Shop my favorite MNZ slides below.
