Travel In Style


Are you taking a trip this summer? Do you ever wonder what you should wear to effortlessly combine comfort and style? It can be tricky. You don’t want to be that person that looks like they’re trying too hard to look good, but you also don’t want to look like a slob. I have come up with a few outfit options that exude class, comfort and ease. Check them out!

The Athletic Look

Athleisure has been a huge trend for the past couple of seasons. This look is great for a trek through the airport. The tennis shoes offer comfort and practicality. The big bag is useful for all of the small things you need to throw in for a trip. Headphones are a must for a trip on an airplane, whether there is a crying baby behind you or if you want to fall asleep listening to your favorite tunes. This outfit screams travel chic!

The Boho Traveler

This look has a more boho west coat vibe to it. It would be a great choice if you were traveling from a cold to warm place or vice versa, because there are layers. This look is just plain cool and versatile for any destination.

Pretty in Pink

This outfit is great for a tropical getaway. The dress is comfy for the plane ride and also keeps you cool when you reach your destination. The flats add more comfort for walking from gate to gate. This fun, flirty look is a great option for any summer vacation.

Back to Business

For all of you business travelers, this outfit it for you. It is professional, comfortable and practical. The monochromatic color scheme is so chic and understated. The trench coat adds warmth for those cold drafts on the airplane. The bag is also big enough to fit all of your business accessories in. The headphones, again, a must-have for any plane ride.

Thanks for reading and happy travels!


Trend Alert: Metallics

From runway to street style, metallics are everywhere right now. Although, as a whole, they tend to scare some people away. They are often seen as too futuristic or fashion-forward. I often hear people say, “I don’t think I could pull that off”. You don’t have to be a trendsetter to work this trend.

If you’re a little apprehensive, you can start out small with some accessories. You could try it out at home first with a chevron striped metallic pillow. Electronic accessories like phone cases and headphones are a fun and easy way to add a little metallic to your life. If you’re feeling brave, you can even dabble in the beauty department with things like lipsticks, nail polish and temporary tattoos. A little splash of metallic can add tons of fun to your overall look.

Bags and backpacks are also a great way to join in on the trend without committing to the full look.

If you’re looking to make a bold statement, any metallic shoe will do the trick. Whether it’s a wedge, sneaker, sandal or heel, the iridescent appearance will give you that “cool” edge.

Now for the full look. If you want to, you can mix and match. Pairing a metallic skirt with a knit top will give you a cool contrast. On the other hand, if you want to dive right in, you can do a head to toe metallic look with a skirt/shirt combo or a dress. I personally love the metallic shorts and sweatshirt. They can transform your most casual outfit into an uber-trendy look.

Hopefully, I’ve inspired you to add some metallic to your wardrobe. Don’t let the flashiness of the trend scare you away. It’s always fun to try new things. If you feel confident in it, you can pull anything off. Thanks for reading!
