Travel Fashion Guide: Jet-setting to Oregon

Hey travelers and fashionistas!

How does everyone feel after their weekly workout? Stronger and sexier by the minute, I’m sure….

Well, this week, AGT is travelling to Oregon to visit friends, run a half marathon, explore, and spend some time in wine country… and of course I had to help her pick out some key, fashion forward, outfits for her journey.

Two BIG things AGT needs for her trip:  1) a casual, but still fashion forward outfit, to travel around, during the day, and still be comfortable  2) a wine country outfit for those amazing wine tastings she is going to attend.

Nothing screams comfort and fashionable like my old faithful, a colored (yellow) Converse Chuck Taylor J she’s going to be able to walk all over and still look so cute in a pop of color shoe. The new Rag & Bone distressed cropped boyfriend jeans are a perfect, slouchy, relaxed denim…able to move, and yet still be in style. Next, let’s pair the jeans with the affordable, west coast inspired, California Tee from Topshop. Finally, adding a straw fedora and a cute pair of vintage sunglasses are the perfect combination of comfort, accessories, and fashion for a day of touring down the Oregon Trail J

Nothing is more elegant, sexy, or fashion forward then a little white dress at a wine party.  Alice & Olivia’s “Florence” dress is a boho, chic, white peasant dress that is the perfect base piece for a wine tasting… just don’t spill J To stick with my love for spikes, and an edgier piece in every outfit, Juicy Couture’s “Spike Drama Necklace” adds the pop of gold and silver colors to the white dress. It will fall perfectly above the neckline of the dress and be a great way to pull the whole outfit together. A gold Nine West strappy heel will definitely bring out the gold in the necklace and add to the pops of color throughout the outfit. Pairing the outfit with a matching gold Michael Kors clutch is the perfect finish to a divine, wine tasting outfit.

Let’s all wish AGT a fun, exciting trip to the west coast! Don’t forget to follow her on twitter this week to catch all the excitement as she travels! @agirltravels

Travel Fashion Guide: Jet-setting to Miami

Hey travelers… and fashionistas :)

I hope you all enjoyed your week at the beach… I know everyone looked amazing!!

This week, we are definitely going to hang out at the beach… and not just any beach….SOUTH BEACH… “party in the city where the heat is on… all night on the beach till the break of dawn…. I’m going to Miami…welcome to Miami” -will smith (swoon)

WHOOOO HOOOO!!! Monday, I’m flying to South Beach for a business trip and I need all the looks I can fit in a suitcase!! Being there for business, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy my 3 day adventure. Some essentials other than my business attire are definitely a must for Miami. Miami is truly rising in the fashion industry, as a fashion destination, in the world.

When flying, although you want to remain comfortable, still looking fashionable is such an easy task. My “plane” look features a1990s grunge look with a touch of today’s trends.

My comfy Beatles band tee and a stylish pair of ripped up, vintage denim shorts is a perfect outfit to wear on the plane, simple, yet so cute. The perfect shoe… my old faithful…spiked, high top Chucks. (YES!) Adding my black thick framed glasses and a white fedora just mixes it all up. The Chanel tote makes for a great carry on and a touch of couture (always pop one name brand into an outfit to really stand out).

Of course one of the main things to do in Miami is hit up the beach and get a tan. Sitting in the sand reading the “The Great Gatsby”, wearing a black bathing suit bottom and mix matching it with a coral, fringe top really shows off this years trends, without leaving those dreaded tan lines on your shoulders. Accompanied by Juicy Couture velour shorts to have for when you want to walk around, and a Juicy Couture “beach inspired” iPhone case for the trip. A must have at the beach: sunglasses. A pair of vintage, round eye sunglasses is the perfect finish to get a great tan while enjoying the ocean.

Oh, we can’t forget our night outfit for after work dinner and drinks.

Black, black, black… you can NEVER go wrong with black. For dinner at the beginning of the night, grab your sexy little black dress and pair it with a studded, leather jacket for a more stylish look at dinner before you go hit the club later. Take the jacket off later to show off your dress and give you room to dance.  A studded Michael Kors wristlet to hold onto all of your things is a perfect matching accessory to keep everything together all night. A smokey, dark eye…some curls and Givenchy strappy stilettos is the perfect outfit for a night out on the town. You don’t even have to worry about any jewelry, just the statement pieces we’ve chosen here and you’ll be set.

Thanks for helping me pack… I’m all set and ready to go!! Make sure to follow me on Twitter @missblackseries to catch all the Miami fun this week…

until the next time….
