Hey guys! As you read this, Marc and I are traveling through middle America on our way to Boston – keep up with our travels (and relieve me of some inevitable road trip boredom) by following along on Twitter and Instagram. I have a few friends lined up to share some great posts with you this week! Today Amanda from LoveCreative Blog is here to share her picks for West Coast and East Coast-inspired fashion. I hope you enjoy it, and be sure to head over to Amanda’s beautiful and inspiring blog!
Well hello there Her New Leafers! I’m Amanda from LoveCreative Blog where I post about design, music, and fashion among other things. Today I have a little style post inspired by Kira’s cross country road trip from the
Best Coast West Coast to the East Coast! I love road trips so much—funky truck stops, sunsets and sunrises in the rear view mirror, amazing off-the-grid food finds, and singing yourself hoarse to your favorite CD. But one thing’s for sure, you gotta be comfortable when you’re facing for 10 hours or more in a car. These 2 outfits are easy, comfy and practical.
I’m a SoCal native, so I know a thing or two about dressing for the West Coast: bright nails, arm party, shorty shorts, tank top with light weight shirt for night time, sunnies, and add in a straw cowboy hat and a fringed bag for some flair. Usually I would opt for sandals, but serious driving calls for something more sturdy like these cute boat shoes.
I always think East Coasters are a little more sophisticated than us California beach bums. I would try to make more of an effort with a flirty skirt, sheer blouse and metallic flats. Brights are still in, but maybe try to match a little like this cardigan, satchel and nail combo in hot orangey yellows. Shades and hat go without saying, and don’t you just love that tortoise shell watch?!
Have a fun and safe drive Kira! We can’t wait to see what Boston has in store for you!
