Digging out my suitcase from my closet is one of the best parts of getting ready for spring break. That means it’s time for bright colors, flowing dresses and sandals—and avoiding extra costs just because I look like a foreigner.
This spring, I’m going to 3 different continents—Europe, Asia and South America, and need to maximize style and space, and minimize baggage fees.
Before packing for international-conscious fashion, it’s important to bear in mind…
Suitcases are merciless with anything that requires ironing.
Blisters are the last thing you want as you’re running to catch a flight, train or bus, or walking miles on foot to catch the area’s best attractions, I found two pairs of sensible and stylish flats at Nine West at the Outlets at Castle Rock.
With these essentials in mind, I’m using a few fashion trends to keep myself from looking like an outsider and looking local chic, no matter where I go.
For the first leg of my trip, I’m flying to Rome. When I get there, I’m expecting to be exhausted, but excitement will overcome exhaustion so that I see as much as I possibly can in the next week and a half.
Word on the street is that Europeans are breaking spring in with bright colors in fun combos. I’m bringing brightly colored bottoms to look the part. I got these gorgeous slim-fit, ankle red denim (I can easily wear with heels and flats) for under $40 at Kenneth Cole and I didn’t even need to go to Rome to get them. When in Rome, I’ll look like a Roman, but won’t pay Roman prices for the look.
