Clothes were never something I cared much about, I’d throw on jeans and a t.shirt for pretty much any occasion. My style when travelling usually leaves a lot to be desired for because I never plan my outfits and end up with a bunch of patterned trousers and striped t.shirt as I’ve discussed previously. However, these days my fashion sense is getting better (well at least I’d like to think so anyway). I still don’t spend a fortune on clothes, I mean flights are way more important, but I do spend a little more than before making sure I have a few good outfits in my wardrobe. Having just arrived back from Venice, where you basically have to look stylish, I thought I’d share with you what I wore.
The Stylish Adventurer Look
During late spring Venice can be pretty warm in the day so I opted for a longish pleated skirt. I paired this skirt with two different blouses, one that covered my shoulders and the other a one shoulder affair. There are a few places in Venice that request you to have your shoulders and knees covered so I had to make sure I had an outfit that did both of those things. I find white is a great colour for city exploring too as it keeps you quite cool and it works pretty well with the red skirt.

The Evening Out Look
I find it much harder to put an evening look together than a day time look. I’ve never been one to dress up too much and when travelling with hand luggage there isn’t always space for evening and day-time outfits. Thankfully I managed to squeeze one evening outfit into my case! I’ve never been a huge dress fan but my do I love a good jumpsuit. I picked this one up in H&M last month and I could not love it more. On normal people it would probably be a 3/4 length leg but on me it is more of a full leg length size. However, the wide leg makes this perfect for those warm Italian evenings. If you get cold then the perfect cover up would be a leather jacket. I forgot my jewellery on this trip but a necklace would complete the look.

The Casual Travel Day Outfit
During my travel days to and from a new destination I always have to wear something comfy and lightweight. I find airports and planes can either be freezing cold or boiling hot or normally both, in the space of an hour. A version of these patterned cotton pants have been a staple of mine for a long time, equally has a leather jacket. I’d be the first to admit I play it safe on travel days and wear a tested outfit.
Save it for later
Hope you’ve enjoyed this post! I’ve had so much fun putting it together and I’d love to hear your thoughts below. Maybe I’ll even do another travel style post soon.
