This post is about vacation style - but I want to preface by saying:
vacation style has more to do with the way you feel inside than what you put in your suitcase.
By definition, "vacation is an extended period of recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling." Recreation is defined as "activity done for enjoyment when one is not working."
Vacation style is the chance to break from stuffy work clothes and school uniforms and express your truest self. Consider the following objections as your start shopping for vacation pieces or packing your suitcase:
Do the articles of clothing...
- make me feel relaxed and carefree?
- evoke happiness?
- bring out my inner child?
- give me the chance to be daring with my fashion?
In light of the above, I always allow myself to buy a few new pieces for the occasion. The only rule is that the vacation pieces cannot be expensive! (I want to make sure I have enough money for the trip itself!). I discovered MISSGUIDED several years ago and since then it's been my go-to online shop for affordable, always chic vacation pieces. Take a look at two of my vacation looks below featuring Missguided!
