Traveling Light for Her

Traveling Light for Her by krista-allmond-montalvo featuring oasis dresses

These are my picks for traveling light for your summer vacations.  With the price of check-in luggage more people are trying to pack it all in the carry on.  Choose easy to mix & match options that are versatile and light-weight.  Wear your bulkiest items on the plane as well as your hat.  Choose accessories that can change your outfit from day time to night time.

Dress - I love this dress.  I got it at Black House White Market.  It is slinky & sexy.
$100 -

Oasis dress - I like this maxi because it is great for day & night.  I like the halter detail because then you don't need much to accessorize it.
$66 -

Slouchy sweater - This crochet sweater can double for a cover up or pull over a tank for an easy beach wear.  It is also good for those cool night beach walks.
$98 -

Scoop neck top - This is a fun tank with a stripe pattern that just goes with everything.
18 CAD -

Michael Stars boyfriend tank - I like the shine on this tank which allows to wear it as is or as a cami.
$40 -

Skinny leg jeans - White jeans just say Beach to me.  I like the crop cut for summer.
$60 -

Red Engine shorts - You have to have some boyfriend jean shorts too!!
$128 -

Michael Stars Side Slit Linen Shorts - Linen and summer just go together. The red gives you a pop of color in suitcase,
$88 -

J Crew slimming swimwear - I love this one piece that is easy to wear & very classy.  The plunging V neck is so very sexy too.
$90 -

J Crew j crew swimwear - This is a cute two piece that still has great coverage & style.
$52 -

GAP capri - I love these black cigarette pants.  Very versatile!
$50 -

Sandals - I like these metallic thongs because you can wear them to the beach or even with your black slinky dress at night.
$88 -

Scarve - Great scarf to use as a shawl or necklace.  The purple gives you the fun color blocking with the oranges & reds too.
$18 -

BKE belt - This is a great neutral belt that can help you change up your outfits.
$30 -

Gucci acetate sunglasses - I love the Jackie O look.
£210 -

Melissa Odabash floppy sun hat - Gotta have a hat too!  A fedora is also a great choice.
£16 -

TOMS Shoes Classic Canvas Red Slip-on Shoes Men 11 - The red Toms are also an easy wear.  I would also consider my laceless Converse too.
$44 -

Women's apparel, accessories, and footwear from J. Jill - I love this linen chambray tunic.  You can use it as a coverup or slip on your white jeans for another outfit.  
$30 -

1x1 Slub 3/4 Sleeve Wide Neck Dolman Top - I love this soft dolman tee.  It's lightweight and will feel so good on your skin after those days in the sun.  You can color block it with the red shorts too.
$69 -

Don't forget your bags!  Use a Marmie Hobo bag as a carry on purse & it makes the perfect beach bag.  Make sure you also get a Marmie oversized clutch to use as an accessory pouch for traveling then as your night time bag!

For accessories, I love the Stella & Lily Metallic Hoop Earrings.  They go with everything and look great day or night.  I also love the Beaded necklaces from we bead connected.  They have that earthy feel and go with all outfits.  Plus they are so versatile.  You can wear them long or loop them up to make a short necklace or loop them up as a bracelet.

I also choose a nude wedge heel for the versatility to go with every outfit & it allows you to dress things up a bit.

The sheer top above is great beach choice also because it is lightweight and can be dressed up or down.  I like this natural color but they are available on lots of colors.  With this color palette I would choose a pink one.

SheShe Boutique in Montrose, CO has a lot of these items available.  SHOP LOCAL!!  Stay tuned for more Traveling Light posts throughout the summer.  I will be compiling traveling light collections for kids and babies.  Plus my husband, Andy will be guest posting a collection for the Men!!
