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: Set Sail This Summer

hey travelers…. and fashionistas :)

Didn’t we look soooooo fabulous last week in miami… what an exciting time in SOUTH BEACH!!! Since we are already so close to the water, I decided our next BIG adventure should be to hop on a boat and go sail the seas. Minimalism and basics are such a great trend for the summer and following a little cliche nautical theme will only enhance your outfit on the great seas. simplistic, yet trendy is the only way to style your outfit for the boat.


 This great little outfit shows off the “sailor girl” in us while maintaining a simplistic summer look. an American Apparel tank, a statement necklace, Juicy Couture sailor shorts, a pop of color wedge, straw fedora hat, and a pair of Ray Ban shades is a perfect start to our sailing trip. it mixes our couture labels with affordable styles and will look amazing on any body type.


Once on the boat, we must continue to sun and darken our miami tan with Saks Fifth Avenue Clarins Sunscreen. it’s amazing, and adds a slight shimmer to your skin while protecting it from potentially damaging rays. The Marianna G red cut out swimsuit will flatter your figure while the Juicy Couture sarong adds a pop of color, and a hip cover up. Some Target thonged flats add in that affordable piece every look needs. Don’t forget to protect yourself from the sun, with a Kate Spade, trend inspired striped hat and Vera Wang oversized shades for a classier look.

Whether enjoying the waves splashing up against the boat or laying out on the boat deck getting some sun, both looks help create a nautical beach look while maintaining trends, style, and affordability. Have a blast sailing the seas….don’t forget to follow me on twitter @missblackseries to catch up on fashion trends and tips through the week….

until the next time….
