3 Easy Tips to Travel Fashionably – How I Travel Light and Simple!


There is a lot to unravel when fashion meets travel…!

I am a traveller by heart and love the excitement of unleashing the enigmatic energy by trotting around! 😀

The more I think about it, the more I surrender myself to the belief of drawing magic from this universe and radiating liveliness by exploring the unseen!

Last weekend, I visited one of the beautiful cities of Portugal, Lisbon.

Exploring the alluring architecture through cobbled alleyways was one of the best experiences I have had with my loved ones in recent times. The city has got an absolute blend of nature and design.

Waking up in a strange new town is a scintillating sensation to puff! Given a chance and quota of holidays, I would love to feel that over and over again! 😉

Although lured by the temptation of dressing up, I love to keep my travel outfits as comfy as possible.

To me, travel takes an upper edge and I would voluntarily shove all my drive towards planning the travel over planning my travel bag. 😉

3 Easy Tips to Travel Fashionably

To keep it travel-oriented, I take the bottom-up approach…

Comfortable Pair of Shoes

Shouldn’t the first step towards the 1000 mile journey be gripping? 😉

I am a keen walker, so, the first thing I do is get myself settled on the shoes!

Slip-ons, chunky trainers, runners or sneakers; whatever you choose it has to be snuggly to get you going!

Spiffy bag

Believe it or not, there is always a need for a big pocket whilst you are wandering around to hide in a jumper for gusty evenings or a couple of snack bars for an unexpected fun trek, your favourite glares and your best friend, your phone!

Just so you don’t feel the burden of carrying it, pick a cool and kicky bag – the simpler the smarter & the weirder the better!

No-brainer uppers

Keep your travel outfits as simple as possible so you devote all your time to your much-earned short jaunts and don’t end up spending half a morning on garbing.

I’d go for something more frivolous yet stylish to create a simple and cushy look for the city tour day.

After sorting point 1 above, it becomes fairly easy to select the outfit; it could be as simple as teaming up a pair of denim shorts with embroidered top, a pocket t-shirt scrambled sleeves dress or a crepe dress with your ideal pair of sneakers- try any of these and no one can stop you from shining. 😉

A lot of trends that are back on shelves had me beaming with vivid-throwback joy – embroidery and sequins being my favourites!

How to put it to use!

Following from all of that, I chose a sequin check shirt and teamed it up with a casual pair of navy blue twill shorts for my first-day outing.

I didn’t bat an eyelid on picking this cool cold-shouldered ruffled cup-sleeves dress (with pockets ;)) for the second-day (from my fav ZARA), paired up with white sneakers & a smart backpack!

Here is my lookbook for you from both the days:

If nothing else, you should do weekend getaways to explore the nearest countryside or an untouched land of wilderness.

Believe you me!

It will give your mind a new outlook and perspective to see things differently when you come back home.
