In last weeks post, Summer Travel Style, I showed you four different looks that travel light and will easily fit in your carry-on bag. The first look was very layered with khaki pants and jacket, over a white tank and sweater, all accessorized with a colorful scarf and hat. Layering is perfect for days spent in transit. You can remove pieces as needed and they are lightweight enough to simply go into your hand bag. Here’s another look at that first outfit.
What you don’t see in the first photograph is the cute ivory sweater under the jacket. I always carry a similar sweater with me no matter where I go. It’s perfect over a tank top or strapless dress when you need a bit more coverage, and practical when you go from a warm outdoor location to indoor air-conditioning. Even if you are going to the beach, take it with you — I frequently travel to California where the evenings can be quite chilly. If you’re near the coast or in the mountains, the temperature can drop 10 degrees or more in the evening. Honestly, I wear this sweater more than anything else in my wardrobe, traveling or not.
And remember, you can change up the scarf and the shoes and suddenly it looks as though you’re wearing a complete new outfit.
So there you have it for this week, all in one carry-on. More travel style to follow.
