What I Wear When Traveling
When in doubt wear stripes. Stripes always seem to be a good idea when traveling and they make you look casual chic. Imagine this outfit is a solid what tee, not so cute, but with stripes, super cute! =)
Also note that the stripes are skinny not thick.
Thick stripes remind me of rugby shirts and Ralph Lauren sweaters. This is the opposite of light and springy so I prefer thin striped tops.
I never know where I might end up while traveling so I always pack some simple t-shirts to wear with jeans. This has saved me from wearing fancy blouses in places where you shouldn’t dress too nice. For example, this location – Red Rock Canyon State Park. It’s a short 30 minutes drive from the Las Vegas strip.
We took this Red Rock detour after an active 3 days at MAGIC. The change from walking a fashion trade show to a beautiful and challenging 5 hour hike was exactly what we needed to cap off our trip.
I wore this casual outfit to leave the hotel and make our way to the the park. We took these photos then I changed into my workout gear to climb to the top of the mountain – which took 2.5 hours, one way.
Back to this travel look. I try to never wear my hair down when on a long distance drive or on a plane for over 4 hours. I can never keep my hair looking lively after a long period of time. So to prevent the embarrassment of bed head hair I wear my hair up or wear a hat, sometimes I even do both.
This is my go-to look for an effortless travel outfit that will always be stylish during the spring and summer months.
What do you wear when you want to look casual chic?
PS: We didn’t take a close-up shot of these super cute flats – we will the next time I wear them.
