My favourite way to spend a vacation is to do some adventure travelling. However, thanks to the work I do, I often stay in luxury hotels or all-inclusive resorts. I had the good fortune to go on a cruise in the not so distant past. People: let’s be honest, some south-bound travellers are less than classy. Fortunately, that’s something that can be improved.
It’s not that complicated to show some class while vacationing in sunny spots…
Of course, wearing a swimsuit at the beach or the pool makes perfect sense during the daytime! However, come evening, I expect people to ditch the swimsuit and make an effort to dress up for dinner at a restaurant. I’m not referring to ball gowns and tuxes… just wear something nice. Also, I don’t expect people to drain their bank account… it’s absolutely possible to be well dressed on a budget thanks to a few tips and tricks…
How to dress on a dime when heading south for vacation?
- Warm weather clothing is on sale at this time of year, both in-store and online, so now’s the time to stock up for next year. Come April, prices will go back up.
- Choose pretty camis to wear with vintage skirts. Yes, yes, lots of pretty second-hand vintage skirts are available. They’re easy to find, they look chic, and they don’t cost much.
- Just bring one pair of shoes that with will go with EVERYTHING. I promise, a pretty pair of sandals can make all the difference!
Here, for example, is a look that’s perfect for dinner on a cruise ship or at an all-inclusive restaurant. I found my skirt on the Kapara website. I like the way it flutters in the wind and how easy it is to pair it with a white cami. The oversized pink handbag can double as a beach bag and the classic sandals will go nicely with just about everything! Is this the kind of style you like to wear in warm weather climes?
