WHAT TO WEAR: Traveling

July 21st, 2015 at 2:00am

It’s summer in the city, and the early bird catches the worm. So wake up, because it’s time to explore! When you’re on the go traveling, lightweight pieces are essential to your day-to-day schedule. The biggest mistake people make when traveling is with the clothes they pack; comfort is key, as is traveling with the necessities.

I spotted this Fashionista snapping photographs with her Diana mini film camera while sporting a simple yet appropriate outfit to walk the city in. Her classic low-top Converse All-Stars will allow her to walk long distances without feeling tired. Her utility-chic cargo jacket is the perfect staple to her outfit, adding an edgy look but also keeping her warm when the temperature drops. Pairing this jacket with cut-offs and a basic V-neck top keeps this ensemble simple, chic and sporty.
While traveling, carrying a smaller handbag, preferably a cross-body bag to distribute the weight, is also important so that you don’t carry belongings that aren’t needed. Using a cross-body bag is useful because they are compact and comfortable to hang around your shoulder. I know I’m guilty of carrying 10 or more lipsticks in almost every purses! The point is to carry less and pack essential items you know you will need throughout the day. This Fashionista kept it light, and by using a mini camera, she is able to explore the city all day without lugging around a heavy DSLR. Also, a watch is a useful item to wear while traveling, as it allows you to easily keep track of distance and time. Her adventure has only started.
One Simple Change: If you need extra space for your belongings for class, you can opt your purse for a handy backpack like this cotton canvas backpack by STATE Bags Smith Giveback Backpack. What I love about this company is that for each backpack sold by STATE, this company hand-delivers a backpack to an American child in need of this essential school staple. Take these helpful tips, and have a safe travel! Bon Voyage!
