* My Travel Outfit *

Hello lovelies!

Hope you're all well! If you follow me on Instagram, (@electricsunrise) you'll know I'm currently on holiday in Italy - my favourite country! I'm so happy to be back in the land of art, music and gelato, and to get my annual dose of vitamin D! I love packing outfits for my holidays, but when it comes to choosing an outfit for travelling, I'm usually stuck. I like to be comfortable, yet stay stylish throughout the day... Here are some of my own suggestions:


Travel Outfit



 * Wear a comfortable pair of denim jeans or shorts; my reliable Levi shorts never let me down! Match with a relaxed and fashionable cami top, or slouchy sports lux style T-shirt. 

* Carry a lightweight jumper which can be stored in your bag if too warm, or easily thrown on if the air-con gets too cold. A sturdy bag is also a must, and will help you keep your hands (stress) free, allowing you to carry all your airport essentials (Starbucks latte, duty-free shopping bag(s), etc).

* Most importantly, wear comfortable and well-worn shoes! Stick to your old pair of Nikes or converse, to guarantee no blisters accompanying you on your travels! Try and wear shoes that are easily slipped on and off, to save you from endlessly tying shoe laces at airport security... Not ideal!

* Finally, make sure you pack a classic pair of sunglasses, which will keep you looking chic even if you have no makeup on underneath the lens. Make sure all essential electronic devices are charged to beat the airport lounge boredom, and don't forget to pick out a good book, or two, to pass the time! 


Oh, and one last thing... Enjoy! :)

  5. I almost always wear converse when I travel because they're comfy and I am wearing socks underneath when I have to take my shoes off for security! I definitely like bringing a backpack too because I can fit all of my essentials inside :) Love this post!
