Holiday weekends have a knack for escaping us and dropping us into reality in the blink of an eye. One minute we're on a beach, umbrella-ed drink in hand, and the next--back to the hustle bustle of every day life with only the pain of skin too burnt brushing against car doors or chaffing from the weight of sand filled luggage reminding us of what once was. While I didn't travel to any exotic locales (hey, I do live in a beach town afterall!) this weekend, I did soak up some sun and find myself sticky with aloe vera gel in hopes of soothing the results of a few too many hours in the sun. If I were traveling home today, these would be my picks for a cozy-chic ride home.
With denim cut-offs (or skirt) as a base, I've added a vintage inspired hoodie to cut the chill of a car air conditioning system (we did decide we've all had enough sun for the weekend...windows up!), neutral moccasins for chilled toes (or rest stop breaks!), and a printed scarf big enough to double as a blanket, head scarf (in case we decide windows down for a sunset ride home), or a sarong for one last walk along the beach.
What are your favorite travel pieces after a vacation or weekend getaway?
