What to Wear: Travel Style

I've been daydreaming of vacation...and that got me browsing through some of my photos from past trips, so I thought I'd compile a little style file (rhyme, hah!) of what I've worn while traveling. With some people's spring breaks coming up, perhaps you'll get a few ideas of what to pack if you're headed somewhere warm & fun!


While exploring the beautiful island of Bermuda, I chose a classic striped top, ocean-colored shorts and a fun printed scarf to keep the breeze out a bit. Maxi dresses that pack well are always a great go-to for me; it's simple to throw on and go shopping or out to dinner. When you're beach hopping, a lightweight tunic and white pants looks effortlessly put together, while keeping you cool in that heat! Try a bright color to mimic the style of the tropics. 

We've enjoyed a few trips to Miami which is known for it's beaches, bright colors, and flashy way of life...and let's be honest, it can get waaaay hot & humid there. Punchy hues, floaty chiffon dresses and silky tanks paired with shorts has become my uniform for time spent in south Florida. Each has an element of fun and style, all while keeping the rising temperatures in mind. When trotting off to the beach or lounging by the fabulous resort pools, I'd suggest a pair of classic white linen pants, a fabulous and glam swimsuit, and a pair of big sunglasses (you know, for hiding from the paparazzi..)

Hawaii is such a favorite of mine...each time I make the trip, it's always a struggle to leave. Easy style abounds here as you want to spend the majority of your time soaking up the island sunshine and simple, beachy lifestyle. I try to pack a good variety of tanks and shorts so I can mix and match to get out the door fast. Find some tops with fun detail whether it is sequins, print or a great texture; this will make your normal shorts & top outfit looking fresh and styled. Dresses tend to pack well and always look great, so I'd definitely suggest tossing a few into your suitcase... if you're worried about wrinkled fabrics from travel, try folding a few sheets of tissue paper inside the dress to eliminate extra creasing. 

Island Hopping// Beach Days
I'm lucky enough to be quite close to the water when I desire a quick escape from the daily grind. Sometimes the weekends are spent biking along the canopy covered roads, enjoying the sunshine & surf, or chatting with friends over iced tea. Nautical navy and white are oh so classic, and a simple pairing to pack. When the breeze picks up, throw on a pair of printed shorts and a lightweight, cotton button up over your bikini. Belt a summery, floral dress to meet friends for lunch and or ice cream in the afternoons.
