How to Travel Anywhere Stylishly

If you know me, then you know how much I love to travel. I've been very fortunate to travel throughout Europe, live in Asia, and see quite a bit of North America as well! We try to take a big trip, often overseas at least every 2 years. With the wide range of traveling I've done domestically and internationally for relaxation and for sightseeing, I've learned a lot about what to pack. There are types of clothing that work well for travel. But the good thing is you don't need to sacrifice style for traveling in comfort!
Recently I was introduced to Aventura clothing. Aventura is a family-owned and operated company, dating back to 1965. Their collections are designed from the ground up with quality and comfort in mind and with the use of organic and sustainable fibers. Today I am showing two of their pieces; the Mallory dress and the Alexus tank

The Mallory dress is an incredibly comfortable dress made of soft, breathable fabric that I didn't find wrinkled at all. It's modest, while still being flattering. The last thing you want to worry about when traveling getting on and off planes, is showing too much! It can be dressed down easily for sightseeing, as I did in my first look,. But it can also be glammed up for later that day going out to dinner. With minimal room in your suitcase this dress is definitely something you want to pack!

Even casually you can add a bright crossbody bag to stay stylish while leaving your hands free for sightseeing! This dress has been great this summer, too because I don't need to worry if I bend over to pick up my daughter or worry about sitting on the floor with her.

For a night out, pair this dress with heels, statement jewelry, and a clutch! It's an effortless look that takes no time at all (and who wants to waste time while traveling)!?

The Alexus tank is now the cutest tank top in my closet! I wish you could feel how soft it is, too. It's made of a bamboo blend that is so breathable I reach for it at least once a week. The back and pocket detail adds such a fun element.

  11. I love traveling but always have a heck of a time deciding on what to pack! These look like great pieces, and I love how versatile they are, especially that dress. A dress that can be dressed up or down is a travel must I think!

  14. Ok, I just ADORE that dress! So sporty and comfy looking! I had a hard time deciding what to pack for Italy. I wanted to look cute, yet it was so hot that I sweat through my clothes in a matter of minutes. Whew! Plus... I didn't have a euro plug for my hair appliances... and, so... my hair was up every day (but, it was so hot- it was for the best!). I didn't know you lived in Asia for awhile! We try to travel to Europe every 3-4 years. We've only done Paris and Italy so far, not sure where we'll go next!
