I don't know about you, but the travel bug has me craving a few days away from here right now. of course, with the weather acting like a woman right now going through menopause, I always like to pack a few extra pieces of clothing into my luggage. Today, I wanted to share a few spring fashion needs that you should take with you anytime you happen to be traveling.
Spring Fashion Needs When Traveling the Country
Tank Tops and Gingham Pull Over
I always make sure that I take a tshirt, a tank top, and a gingham pull over with me whenever I head out on the open road. I never know whether it is going to be chilly, cold, or crazy warm where we are going — especially in the Spring. Sorority sweaters and college clothing always make for great travel wear because they keep you toasty and warm. You can find a ton of college apparel by clicking here.
I always pack my favorite Gingham top that I got online last year. It may be out of season, but I love taking it with me. It has a nice blue spring color and light enough that I can wear it and not feel like I am dressed for winter.
I can roll the sleeves all the way up to 3/4 or I can put them down all the way to cover my arms. This is perfect to take on a plane, or if you are riding in a car. This shirt is my go-to shirt anytime that I fly anywhere simply because I get cold easy. During July though, you do not want to step off of a plane wearing a sweatshirt. You want to be able to mix and match.
Seriously –it's all about the layers these days.
Not only that, but you can also add a hat to this outfit and it will really make your outfit pop. You can make your own hat by customizing it — beanies, ball caps, visors and more.
My favorite type of legwear to wear during the spring is Capris. It is warm enough that I don't really want to wear pants anymore but cool enough that I cannot yet wear shorts, so I choose capris instead. My favorite capris are my leggings that can go from full on pants, to super cute capris in a heartbeat.
I used to be afraid to wear a mini skirt, but I love being able to go from day to night in a split second when I am traveling. This outfit above, for example, looks great for a night out on the town, but if I change the shoes and add in some Sperrys or cute Converse, then it would be the perfect outfit for a day out sightseeing.
A Comfortable Dress and Cute Boots
Okay — so I know the norm is to put away the boots at the first sign of spring, but I have a couple of pairs that I always take with me when I travel. You never know when you are going to get to rock those boots — so I choose my favorite comfortable dress and throw on those boots and have a grand ole time on my trip.
In fact, the outfit above is what I wore when I went to LA this last time. I borrowed it from my girlfriend who always lets me shop her closet before I go on a big trip somewhere.
So now that you know a few of my favorite Spring Fashion Needs — what are some of yours?
