Let’s start from the bottom. After all, comfortable shoes are a must while traveling. Who wants to be walking through the Louvre with painful blisters? Not me. Fortunately for travelers and sneaker lovers everywhere, athletic footwear is having a moment. Embrace it. Wear your Nike’s through the streets of Oslo. Chances are you’ll look less like a tourist…unless you zip line, and then…
Another great choice of footwear is the ballet flat. The only thing you need to keep in mind is quality. Ballet flats tend to break down quicker than other shoes, so invest in a quality pair. Finally, unless your plans include a fancy high-end dinner, leave the heels at home and pack a pair of sandals you can dress up or down.
Maxi and midi skirts are perfect for days filled with sightseeing. They’re comfortable and breezy, which is muy importante in hot weather. Also, skirts pair with a variety of tops, from crop tops to blouses, so you can create multiple outfits from one item, saving space in your suitcase! Below are some outfits ideas based on one of my favorite pairings from Lola Boutique, a go-to boutique for all my shopping needs in Northwest Arkansas. I especially love the pictured outfit because it travels so well – no wrinkles! #ShopLocal y’all.
Picking the perfect travel bag is a tricky process. You need a bag large enough to hold your travel necessities (camera, guides, bottled water, etc.); however, you don’t want to be lugging around a purse the size of a duffel bag all day. Play it safe and pick a medium sized bag such as a satchel or bucket bag- Just make sure whatever you choose has a top closure for security purposes.
