Share, Inspire, Unite
I had a friend call me the other day, and ask for some travel fashion advice. I found it quite ironic since we are focusing on "Fashion that Travels" this month, so I thought I would share the overwhelmingly profound advise that I gave her. (insert wink, wink here)
First of all, there are many questions to ask yourself when traveling. My top 5 are:
· Where are you going?
· What is the weather forecast?
· What is the culture like?
· How long will you be staying?
· What kinds of activities/itinerary do you have planned?
In this case, my friend was traveling to New York City, the weather was going to be in the 40s, it’s a metropolitan area with a fashion sense known for black and grey, she was going for a long weekend and they were planning to shop, drink, eat and tour around to trendy places.
I pulled some items from the Outdoormountainspirit.com closet, and low and behold she ended up using several of my recommendations. Here are just a few…
March is our month to focus on travel. And wouldn’t you know it…we’ve got an OMS adventure that takes us out of the country!
This week, we take time out for ourselves. Time for some rest and relaxation, which is few and far between. We find ourselves in Sayulita, Riviera Nayarit in Mexico for another OMS Adventure and we couldn’t be happier. We are staying at a quiet, private estate just outside of town and a 10 minute walk from a private beach where we might see 6 people at most all day. We have laid in the sun, played in the waves, attempted to surf and met some really wonderful people along the way. We are grateful for this respite, while be it a short one.
As you can imagine, we utilize any adventure out of town to put our travel fashion caps on. As we wait for new Spring arrivals, we jumped into our Spring 2014 archives for some goodies to serve our every need. Join us on this fashion adventure which I have to say has us uber excited for new items to arrive. With all this fashion, we still managed a base tan and a snarky sense of humor about the blizzard and single digit temps back home....!
Our top travel picks from this trip…
||Carve Designs Middleton Cover Up
Ok…not only is this cover up made from impeccable fabric that drapes and floats and feels like heaven on earth, but the design lines of this cover up are…can I say it?...sexy! Long enough to cover your bum, but short enough to show off your yams, I often pair this top with a pair of capris and a wedge for a night out, and then rock it by the pool the next day.
||Carve Designs Margo Maxi Dress
Wear it to breakfast by the pool, wear it to the beach over your bikini, wear it out at night, it’s a super versatile piece! Not everyone gets it, but maxi dresses are truly amazing and I am a firm believer that everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe.
||Carve Designs Abbie Maxi Skirt & Kumari Tank Top
While this maxi skirt is perfect for putting on over your bikini and walking comfortably around the pool in, it is a bit too long for walking on the beach. Since, I am known for making skirts into dresses on a whim. This is exactly what I did when we reached the sand. I hiked the waist up to my armpits, tucked my blankets under my arm and toddled out to find the perfect sandy spot to call home for the day. When I needed a top to cover up that day, I reached for the Kumari Tank Top. Again, Carve nailed it on the fabric for this piece. It is so yummy, I didn’t want to take it off. And the armpits were cut lower, but not too low so it is bra friendly, and the racer back with the low scoop in the front make it feminine but sporty all at the same time.
||Carve Designs Gansett Dress
This dress gets an A+ for design and fabric coming together and making perfect sense. This swim fabric is brilliant for any surf holiday and the beautiful print makes it super feminine. The open back makes it easy to slip on and off when you need to run into the surf, and creates a great back when you wear it out at night. I will never go on another beach vacation without this piece in tow.
||Lole Supta One Piece Jumper
Perfect for travel days when you are going from one climate to the other. In Mexico we wore this as is with some sandals to stay cool and comfortable on our trip to the airport. Once we landed in Colorado, we grabbed a trusty cardigan to layer up and protect ourselves from the cold while changing into some closed toe shoes.
