Maximizing Your Travel-Smart Style (Get It, MAXImizing?!)
by Andrea of Blonde Bedhead
These days, my travels are limited to trips to and from my home state, Michigan, where I’ve had to visit quite frequently this summer to photograph weddings. Last weekend I had both a wedding to shoot and my boyfriend’s family to meet. Since I was up in Northern Michigan where the temperatures are cooler and his grandparents live, I had to practice some level of conservatism (my mother urged me to not wear a romper and I listened), I opted for a maxi skirt and white bustier top. I wore it again this week to an event and I find this outfit to be quite versatile and comfortable–perfect for multiple wears in one week.
Since I need options when I travel, bringing this maxi dress was perfect–I could choose to wear it as the maxi dress it was meant to be worn as or spice it up with a white bustier top or throw a sweater over top of it. This cut out the need for me to change multiple times in one day as I prefer to do. I could simply add or take away from the dress to create a whole new look, which I did as the day progressed and the temperatures dipped at night.
Now that you’re thoroughly schooled on how to travel light and still look hot, go check out Andrea’s blog. And stay tuned for a post from…ME! That’s right! I’m back, kids!
