Travel & Style

To begin with, how many of you are travel fanatics? Pretty certain most of us are, even though not the kinds we read about on those trending Facebook artciles these days. All of us have a different motivation to travel; some seek adventure, some seek relaxation while some might just want to have a change of pace. Travel for me is an escape from this mundane world. Exploring new places is an immaculate joy ride and an experience you cherish lifelong. I know a lot of people who come and tell me to enjoy my travel more by clicking less pictures. But honestly, pictures are what I take away from my travel! Don’t you smile innocently always when you look at a 5 year old picture? In a way, they are an instant stress reliever for me. I would always want to capture all my moments and preserve them to check them later; a little flashback of memories is a healthy way of living anyways!

I have come across many people who would just take a road trip around the country and be so eccentric about it! But for some reason, I don’t fall in that category at all. I would rather fly or take a train (if it’s not too long a travel time). Road trips do not give me the relaxation I seek from my travel and given an option, I would definitely avoid them!

All of us prefer travelling in comfortable outfits and avoid paying any kind of attention to our travel style. While I’m a happy soul in my regular denims and boyfriend shirts, I do end up putting efforts in styling my travel looks a lot number of times! So here I am, sharing one of those travel look ideas with you all!

Usually you would spot me in a basic tee / shirt with denims and a jacket, but I also love wearing maxi and shift dresses when I’m travelling. They are comfortable and chic and yet have that casual vibe to them.  Even the slightest of styling them would make for a classic travel look.

I tend to depend on layering my dresses to achieve the look I need.

In today’s blogpost, I’m wearing a white shirt dress from And here (since it’s an old purchase, I’m attaching the link of a similar shirt dress I found online). It’s a sheer dress and comes with a white slip to wear under it. The fluid and light fabric makes the outfit a travel friendly one. As I already said, layering is the key to my travel style and also a necessity and so. I went ahead to team the white dress with a denim jacket. The jacket is quite apt for the current weather (Indian weather) as it does keep you warm.

I avoid accessorizing as you could notice but can’t do without my watch and glasses in rotuine life. However, a good handbag is a must. I usually prefer carrying a tote as its roomy enough to carry my daily necessities but I do try and make it light enough to travel comfortably. Apart from totes, I’m a big fan of backpacks these days; the best part being you could hung it over your shoulders and keep your hands free.

Travelling in comfortable shoes is also something I swear by. Sometimes, when I tend to dress up a little I opt for kitten heels as they are not that uncomfortable and look pretty suave. Otherwise, I’m mostly a sneakers and boots kinda girl! These brown ones were a surprise buy from Colaba streets. They not only look goood but are suprisingly pretty comfortable too.
