As we bid farewell to an excruciatingly long spring semester, it is time to embrace all that our glorious summer days may bring. Whether it may entail an exciting internship in the city, a backpacking adventure through Europe or simply a stress-free getaway from college life, traveling is most likely on your agenda. Upon hearing such a word most Fashionistas/os may make a mad dash towards their closets, scouring for their most stunning and prized pieces in a crazed frenzy. Although I have fallen victim to such a pattern in the past (guilty as charged), when given the opportunity to explore an uncharted territory, easy does it. As much as we daydream about roaming the shores in a floor length Missoni number, sometimes the key to fool-proof globe trotting style lies in the age old notion of less is more.
This Fashionista’s punchy, yet totally travel worthy ensemble is a perfect example of the power of minimalism. As much as it may pain you, bid adieu to your high fashion pipe dreams and take a note from this Fashionista by opting for relaxed separates. Whether your summer travels may lead you across the globe or to the city of your dreams, a pair of classic hued high-waist shorts is an absolute must. Keep the look current yet oh so ideal for that dreadful summer heat with a laser cut top, such as this mint colored beauty. With the addition of your favorite pair of sunnies, sandals and a cool head wrap, packing stress will most certainly become a distant memory.
One Simple Change: Transitioning this beach worthy outfit into one appropriate for a night out on the town can be accomplished by swapping the shorts with a neutral toned peplum skirt.
