Comfortable and Fashionable Vacation Wear


If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that the hubby and I left for our Eurotrip adventure on Sunday. If you're not following me you should click here to follow along --> @rinasamantha for our daily updates and stories on Instagram! We are currently in Barcelona and will soon be visiting Rome, Nice, Salerno, Venice, Florence, Croatia, Montenegro, Paris and London. 


We've spent the last three days exploring Barcelona, visiting parks, monuments, churches and getting our eat on! I'll do a more in depth review/ guide of what we did and where we ate in a few future blog posts. 



Today, I wanted to share one of the first outfits I chose to wear to explore Barcelona and provide a few tips on how to dress comfortably and fashionable during your vacation. These tips are particularly helpful if you'll be exploring a lot on foot and don't want your feet to be singing at the end of the day. 





1. Choose comfortable footwear. In three days, the hubby and I walked 70,000 steps and even with comfortable shoes, my feet still hurt by the end of day three. The nice thing is you can usually find a cute pair of comfortable sneakers or sandals that go with everything. I brought my black Nike Flyknits because they're super versatile and look cute with both shorts and dresses. 

2. Find a light, minimalist top. I chose a white tank top in a jersey knit so that I didn't feel uncomfortable walking around all day.  What I love about this simple tank is that I can pair it with more than one bottom for a completely different look. I think I'll try styling it with a pink maxi skirt next!

3. Pack/ wear light layers. The nights can get a little breezy and chilly for me in Barcelona, so I decided to bring a light weight denim jacket that I wore mostly around my waist all day. When evening hit, I was able to drape it over my shoulders for added warmth. 

4. Opt for skort rather than short. A skort looks dressier than your typical shorts but has the functionality of shorts. A win-win in my books. 

5. Choose a cute wallet on chain or mini bag to complete your look. I hate toting around massive bags with me when I travel. I usually wear a small cross-body bag so that I can have my hands free. I've also had a scary encounter with a pick-pocketer in Paris years back and have learned my lesson not to wear huge bags in public when travelling.

  14. Glad to hear you are having a great time so far. You offered up great tips for traveling. I'm particularly fond of crossbody bags that drape over my body and it most definitely makes it a lot less easier to steal and keeps my valuables safe.

  25. Barcelona looks so stunning! I totally agree with you on keep your outfit minimal while travelling, though I never thought of wearing skorts instead of a short for a more dressy look. Your outfit is so on point and you look beautiful. Thank you for the lovely tips and looking forward to more pictures from your trip :)
