Summer Travels

July 15, 2017

It seems like everyone is traveling this month! I haven’t gone anywhere exciting, but I do have a couple of events to dress up for.

Anyways, one of my close co-workers asked me to do some inspiration for her upcoming trip to Vegas, and I couldn’t say no! This post is dedicated to you, Lauren.

Travel-wear

off shoulder
Long car rides or flights are always a pain, but you can still look cute! The key is comfortability (for me, it’s a bit more loose clothing)! I do know some people who end up wearing sweat pants and when they arrive at their destination they change out to different clothes. In the case you don’t want to do that, I would go with some boyfriend jeans and a nicer top to look put together but you’ll also be comfortable.

The off the shoulder trend has been in lately. I don’t like it too much, but it does make a good outfit when you’re strolling around and it’s warm outside.

Just because it’s hot outside doesn’t mean you can’t still dress up! I like wearing dresses. For a more put together look to go on a date or with friends for brunch, I would go out with a maxi dress. Simple but elegant!

Bam, Glam

Night out

Public Desire Saydee Ankle Strap Black Heeled Sandals • Public Desire

These are some of the things I would pick out for a night out. I would lean more towards solid colors and then accessorize. There’s always something in your closet that you can make into a “fancy” outfit with the right accessorize!

Other items:

Makeup:

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Purse Spray • Marc Jacobs
Prada Candy Kiss Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz. • Prada

Especially when it’s hot out, I don’t recommend going all out on your makeup. Even though I know setting spray exist, I believe summer is more about enhancing your features. While during winter, I like to play with colors more. So go all out on your highlighter, mascara, and lipstick!

Handbags:

Topshop Ruby Faux Leather Crossbody Bag – Purple • Topshop
Rebecca Minkoff ‘Leo’ Envelope Clutch – Blue • Rebecca Minkoff
Chloé Women’s Faye Mini-Bag • Chloé
Chanel Classic Small Double Flap Bag • Chanel
Soho leather disco bag • Gucci
Gingham Buckle-Flap Shoulder Bag • Talbots
Dionysus GG Supreme super mini bag • Gucci
Saint Laurent Women’s Monogram Kate Small Chain Bag • Saint Laurent
Chloé Women’s Drew Mini-Crossbody • Chloé

Even though I like bigger bags, it gets annoying to carry around with the heat. Wear something that’ll carry just the essentials.

Hope you enjoy reading this post and find some inspiration! Let me know what you would wear or what kind of trends that you like this summer. (Gingham has been really in– I know.)

Love,

Elizabeth
