Summer is approaching and we all know what that means. Travel time! For me living in California it is so easy to grab a few friends, take the car and go somewhere – anywhere. Road trips are the best. For one day, or for five days. It doesn’t matter. They are simply the best. Now that I have a new car I am sure that a few road trips here and there will be on the agenda and I would like to share my essential style tips, with some help from TopShop, while on the go.
Always be comfortable. This I say always. If you don’t feel comfortable in what you’re wearing just don’t wear it! While traveling it is extremely important that you are comfortable in what you’re wearing as you probably will be stuck in these clothing for a longer period of time. And if you’re sitting in a car or a plane you might not be in the best position to wear tight leather pants and a huge hat thats in the way. If you’re going somewhere sunny and warm put on a cute dress and sandals. If you’re going to a special cute place out of town for brunch or dinner dress casual but still dressy. If you’re just going to another town over the day dress in something you know you can wear no matter what the conditions there may be. Bring a jacket if you suspect that it might be cold. And don’t bring too much stuff! That brings me to my next point.
Be practical. Don’t carry with you too many things and dress for the occasion. I like cross body bags that aren’t too big but still has room for the things that I need like keys, wallet, phone, maybe even a charger and of course my favorite lipstick! Did you guys know that TopShop carries a ton of lipsticks and lip pens that are amazing? My camera is always out anyways and I don’t like carrying around big bags if I know that I am gonna move around a lot. I also always go light on jewelry. And always pick super comfortable shoes because if you end up with feet that hurts you’re completely screwed.
For my perfect travel outfit I picked out these items in this post from TopShop. The off shoulder top is really in right now and it is also super comfortable and suits warm weather as well as chillier weather. I paired it up with some boyfriend jeans, a pair of sneakers and a cross body bag big enough to hold the things that I need. I also accessorized with a double buckled belt and some light jewelry.
