I would love to pretend that I was this "put together" on my recent whirlwind trip north. Instead, this is a capsule wardrobe of very travel worthy seersucker. The fabric is cut on the bias in coral and brown stripes in this skirt by J.Crew. The sleeveless sweater vest is by Izod and the oxfords, a comfy walking shoe, by Bass.
In the look on the left, the coral wrinkle-free blouse is by Talbots. In the look on the right, I've paired the summer weight skirt with a wool sweater by James Kenrob for Dalton. Travel often presents us with temperature challenges we hadn't imagined. I could easily have worn the blouse under the sweater if necessary or with the brown slacks below.
I liked the nubby texture of both the sweater and the slacks, which are by Eric Casual. The slacks were "Dry Clean only," but survived my cold water wash.
And below, you'll see the LAST of all the seersucker in my wardrobe, a pair of shorts I styled last summer as well, though this time around, I've paired the stripes with a sheer floral blouse, oxblood belt and Cole Haan loafers. All items have been thrifted.
This post is part of Patti's regular feature, Visible Monday, a round-up of bloggers challenging invisibility in all it's forms. It's also a teaser in that what I actually wore on my trip to the headwaters of the Mississippi River is much more mundane. Be sure to tune in Tuesday for Adrienne and Jill's Travel Wear round-up.
Have I converted anyone to seersucker?
