Every girl dreams of travelling the world, but some of us are lucky enough to do so this summer. That means a little bit of freaking out over what to pack, how to travel light, what to wear which is both comfortable for walking ad sightseeing but still chic enough to not draw side-eye from the well-dressed locals.
For comfort, forget your heels behind. Go for flats that won’t kill the arches of your feet even if you go to museums all day and dance all night. Take along dresses that are sexy but in a discreet way. You want the gorgeous local boys to look but you don’t want to get labeled as a clueless, flashy tourist. Even in Europe, cultures and norms can vary widely even within cities. It may be okay to be dressed to kill in a bar or club but if you’re in a church or chapel, bare sleeves may be a no-no. Take along a scarf for occasions like this just in case. And don’t forget a large, stylish bag with a long strap for comfort – like the Carrie Smooth Leather bag in Wine.
Navy blue and gold are an absolutely stunning combination. If you’re wearing a navy dress, consider getting one with gold embellishment. Not only is it elegant, it has an element of glamour as well. When you’ve added the gold accents to your outfit, go for gold accessories like a fabulous pair of strappy heels. It’s the best way to accentuate your legs and make your skin look like tan and glowing.
Complete the look with a blue smokey eye look. Apply gold eyeshadow to your eyelid and use an angled brush to create an outline with blue shadow to the curve of your lid. Blend it in until you perfect the look and top it off with a swipe of black eyeliner and a coat of mascara. Throw the Debra Bag in Blue over your arm and you’re good to go!
Everyone needs a luxurious looking bag in brown leather because it’s incredibly multipurpose. It’s neutral enough to go with any outfit while still being bold and making a statement. Even if you’re not a fabulously wealthy European heiress, you can still look like a million bucks with this bag. You don’t even have to be an equestrian to pair it with gorgeous leather boots. After all, not everyone who wears cowboy boots goes riding every day. All that matters is loving the style and being able to enjoy it. Enjoy the Never Full Leather Tote.
Who better to learn a few fashion tips from than a Victoria’s Secret Angel? These women are the darlings of celebrity fashion. Not only do they have beautiful faces, they set the standard for beautiful, sculpted bodies. When they’re not doing the much hyped Victoria’s Secret runway show, they’re also doing high fashion shoots or running their own fashion empires like Miranda Kerr.
Take a lesson in color blocking from supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who really knows how to work the riche casual look. Her little black dress looks so light and breezy and her sandals are enough to make anyone wish it were summer already. The funny thing is, the bag’s colors are perfect for fall but it looks AMAZING with this spring to summer look.
A well crafted leather tote is something you can carry anywhere, anytime. It doesn’t matter if you’re just going to the grocery store or if you’re headed to an upscale eatery with your “ladies who lunch” friends. The Frances Leather Tote in black is the perfect such high luxury bag. Its strong structure allows it to be used for years without becoming shapeless or worn out. Lack of embellishments give it a timeless look so you never have to worry about it going out of style!
