I’m coming at you with something fun today! When I started 5 on Fridays a few months ago I thought it would be a style segment where I round up old outfits for ideas. Well, it’s quick morphed into something more fun! I’m now including topics like travel tips, trips ideas and today’s post is a guide to my outfits during our recent trip to Galveston. I hope you enjoy and find a little vacation Inspiration.
Sightseeing and Lunch
The first day I started out with a really classic look. When selecting a palette for this weekend, I decided I wanted soft blush tones mixed with olive, navy and khaki. The goal was to wear stripes as much as possible and also keep the looks classic and feminine. I wore a lovely The Royal Standard dress, a simple Everlane Trench Coat and The Royal Standard slides. I also paired a strawbag with the whole look for a causal embellishment.
This lovely Tibi jumpsuit was featured earlier this week on the blog. Although it’s no longer available on line, I found a really similar one for you in the products listed below. I paired it with pretty earrings, a clutch and lovely ballet flats. You can easily throw a wrap around or scarf if you feel too cold.
This ensemble was one of my favorites. I paired a blush wrap skirt with a simple olive tank top. A neutral flat sandal and picnic blanket bag was awesome for a day at toting around things while we went shopping. I added tortoise shell earrings and wore a pair of gold aviators.
Attending the Carnival
I really try to bring something more relaxed in the event we go to a theme park. I told the afternoon to pair a good pair of yoga pants with a relaxed ruffled top. It was cloudy that day, so I kept getting chilly. I added a pair of platform lace sneakers with a simple pink utlitarian bag to keep the whole look relaxed.
Hanging at the Beach
I wore this look to lunch and then we took the kiddo to the beach to build sand castles afterwards. Since it was mid-March during this trip, it was still a little chilly. I wore a lightweight sweater and striped linen skirt for the day with a pair of two strap sandals and blush clutch. This look is so comfortable and relaxed yet polished at the same time. For the finishing touch I pulled my hair back into a halo braid and then added a pair of earrings.
