Vacay Dressing for Cooler Climes

Vacay Dressing

We constantly write about heading to the beach this summer. However, I think we have had a record number of customers heading to Ireland, Scotland, or Alaska for vacation.  It is cold up north!  They are not looking for a backless stunner or sleeveless top, nor are they looking for a shapeless parka.  They want fashionable pieces that are easy to pack and will take the edge off the cool winds that buffet the cliffs of Ireland.

If you pack it, they will come…

Stay true to summer and pack your white skinny jeans!  And, as my mother always said, everything goes with white (and black, too!).  This checked swing top is to die for.  It is the perfect length for your jeans, knitted with stretch for uber comfort and packability, and is on trend with its mock turtleneck and leather arm patches.

Classic button down…with a twist

Before you kiss the Blarney Stone, pull out the plaid!  This stunning button down in a classic black and white plaid has a surprise addition — pink! — which adds a distinct feminine flare.  The long sleeves and additional hem length will provide warmth when needed.  Be sure to pack a black pair of pants and heels as this top will surely take you from day to night!

Don’t leave home without it!

Denim.  In fact, who doesn’t pack blue jeans…even if you are headed to Florida!  However, denim, comfort, and colder climates go hand in hand, especially if you are traveling all day.  Instead of pairing your jeans with a tried-and-true tee, reach for this striking silk blue top.  Its simple, abstract print in slate gray, longer rear hemline, and tiny wrist flutter sleeves are so delicate…pairing it with denim will give your outfit complete leather-and-lace vibe.

The true benefit of this travel wardrobe?  It all equals an easy transition to fall!
