When I Travel
One of my favorite things to do while traveling (aside from exploring all the beauty a new place has to offer and food) is challenging my style. When it comes to traveling, comfort is key. But I’ll be honest, sometimes comfortable does not always mean stylish. So I gave myself the personal challenge to look stylish while staying completely comfortable. My secret to traveling in style is picking pieces that I can pretty much wear all day long and not complain about it. For instance, if I have no choice but to wear it 3 days in a row, I am 100% satisfied with it.
My Secret to Traveling in Style
I also recommend picking outfits that you have worn already. Nothing is worse than wearing a new outfit and realizing you feel insecure, it is uncomfortable, or it doesn’t fit right. You want to make sure that when you travel, your outfits make you feel good and will not get in the way of exploring. If you follow this, I promise you traveling in style is easy to do!
Another key with traveling in style is what is on your feet. I don’t know how you travel, but when we do we always travel by foot. I honestly believe it is the best way to see a new place. When we were in Spain & Portugal a week ago, we averaged 20,000 steps a day. That is a lot of walking!
Comfortable & Chic Brand
One of my favorite brands that I find reliable for comfortable footwear is Vionic. Their shoes are like stepping on clouds. I also knew that I wanted to be wearing dresses or jumpsuits. And to be honest, I was not a fan of the thought of wearing sneakers the entire time during our trip.
Fortunately, Vionic makes traveling in style so easy on your feet. They have comfort and chic nailed down. Of course, if sneakers are your thing, they have cute options too. But due to the wonderful weather in Spain & Portugal, I knew I wanted to wear sandals. I decided to go for the Ainsleigh Wedge Sandal because I knew one of the nights, Tre and I would want a much ‘fancier’ dinner. We usually go to more low key dinner places, but this trip was really special and I knew one of the nights we wanted to be slightly more dressed up. So on our last night in Porto, Portugal (and last night of our entire trip *insert sad face emoji*), I got fancied up and put on my checkered dress.
What I Wore
This checkered dress is comfortable because it is not fitted at the waist. There is some extra room which was nice because we’d been eating a lot of delicious pastel de natas everyday with every single meal, cheese (I can’t say no to cheese haha), and all the rest of the amazing cuisine. The fabric is also soft, breathable, and my favorite – has pockets!! If I had to walk in this dress for 3 days, I would be completely fine!
Porto is very hilly and the sidewalks are cobblestones. So for sure comfortable shoes are a must and these Ainsleigh wedges held up pretty well. My feet had no complaints at all. Now that I’m thinking about it, I should have gotten the heels and been completely fine!
So there ya go, that’s my secret to traveling in style. It’s so much fun to dress up and feel your best when traveling! Below are other top Vionic sandal contenders that I was considering.
