Travel Style

Over the years I have found myself traveling more than ever and making a lot of mistakes when it comes to picking my en route outfit. Although going on a trip can sometimes be stressful, picking out what you are going to wear can be very fun! I always try to look my best when traveling, but also stay comfortable. I never know where I am going to get swept off to once I arrive, so I have to be prepared.

No matter what season I am traveling, I always find that I am freezing on the way to my destination. In order to combat any extreme temperatures, I plan my outfit in layers. This can also be helpful if the weather at your destination is warmer or cooler.

 Shoes are very important decisions. They must be cute but practical. I have tried to travel in heels, but I have learned the hard way that this is not the best choice. A ballet flat or loafer will due the trick.

It is also important to pick fabrics that don’t wrinkle easily, you don’t want to arrive looking all crumpled. This is why I usually stick to a chic skinny jean instead of a skirt. As far as make-up goes, I usually try to keep it simple, but reapplying a fresh coat of lipstick can really liven up your look and keep you fresh.

 Overall, color choice should be neutral because you may be transitioning from day to night during your travels.

Short Shorts

Short shorts have definitely made their way back on and off the runway. Although I love this look, because for one thing it reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw, I am very weary to sport the booty short. How short is too short? I have experimented over the years with different short lengths and well most of the time, as cute as they can be, shorts can be extremely uncomfortable and unpractical for wearing in public, especially if you have a little junk in the trunk.

Thinking back, I haven’t ever really seen anyone sporting this look, except for the scantily clad American Apparel girls and celebrities, but it never looks quite as classy as the runway. I am definitely not the conservative type, but when is it okay to show a little cheek? I mean I am not planning on going to a roller rink or disco anytime soon. Anyway to anyone daring to rock the hot pant, I say, “You go girl.”
