the past few days we’ve taken a look at travel style for both cold weather and warm weather. but many of us travel in the shoulder months when it’s not too cold nor too hot. April and May or October and November can be the perfect time of year to roam the streets of new cities without freezing your tush off or feeling the sweat trickle down your back. but shoulder months can present their own unique set of travel quandaries. like rain. when the going gets tough, the tough get going and think layers. today we’re talking how to travel in bad weather.
since spring is right around the corner, (anyone else longing for pastels?) i chose a decidedly spring-like palette. it all starts with an adorable pale pink raincoat from Talbots. this jacket has a drawcord, flap pockets, front zip closure, and a detachable hood. perfecto! it also comes in indigo blue.
add a striped pink tee (similar here) and gray joggers for a sporty chic look. but the piece de resistance is an ombre striped scarf with hues that range from gray to blue to ivory to pink. a third layer not only adds warmth, but it can pull double duty as a blanket when traveling on the plane. i’ve also been known to wrap a scarf over my hair when caught in the rain.
don’t forget to choose your travel footwear with care. and if there’s one brand that focuses on comfort, it’s Easy Spirit. i’m partnering with them once again as their Spring Ambassador. for the next three months, i’ll share their extensive line on Instagram, ranging from sneakers to loafers to sandals. they’ve got a shoe for you, no matter your walk in life. just look at these Savannah slip-on walking shoes: they’re fun, light, clean, and totally uncomplicated. a pull-tab at the back makes it easy to slip into this orthotic-friendly lightweight, flexible sneakers. and Easy Spirits’ new Cushioning System is designed to soften each step.
when i traveled to France last fall, i tucked a pair of low heeled booties into my suitcase that was not only comfortable but chic. take 25% off any purchase from Easy Spirit with code BETH25 until 6.30.20.
