by Renae Virata | The more diverse rodeos become, the more diverse the fashion! Long gone (but still classic!) are the days of only plaid shirts, denim, and cowboy boots. We spotted a bunch of stylish urban cowgirls at the BBQ Cook-off at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo who made the Rodeo their own fashion runway. Check it out! Read the rest of this entry »

by Renae Virata | I don’t know about you, but just about my least favorite part about packing is being unprepared or overpacking. I sometimes reach this dilemma when the weather for my destination calls for chilly, rainy weather. I don’t want to pack too many bulky coats, but I want to make sure I’m literally covered. The answer: Trout Rainwear!
by Renae Virata | Spending a few days in Hawaii, I have learned a thing or two…dressing up is not the MO in the Islands, no matter the occasion. But traveling for the fashionable travelista is about more than just comfort, it’s about style and those many photos you’ll be taking to commemorate your trip!
by Renae Virata | The fresh air, the throngs of happy people, the amazing music – summertime is definitely outdoor concert time! And this summer’s trends definitely lend themselves to perfect concert looks. Crochet, neon colors, and maxi dresses are all hot and fit well for any casual summer celebration. In Houston, where it’s hot and muggy, the less clothes, the better. However, we have a few tips to make sure you have a comfortable and fun experience. Read the rest of this entry »
by Renae Virata | This route is like a rainbow of Midwest natural beauty: green forests, blue waters and red cliffs. And it makes a fabulous getaway from the heat of summer wherever you are! From June through August, the average high reaches about 77 degrees F while the average lows can dip to as low as 48 degrees F. That means a light jacket or cardigan during the day and a medium jacket at night. The style culture super casual, so a classic chambray shirt and cotton maxi skirt or a slim version of cargos with a fun tee are all you need.
by Renae Virata | When you think of summer, what do you think of? Beach? Boats? Miles of ocean? I do, too, which is why a trip down the Florida Keys Overseas Highway is the ultimate summer road trip by the water. For your trip wardrobe, we see bright colors, light fabrics, open-weave cover-ups – anything that will get you ready for a beach stop or a fun water adventure. But pack an umbrella and waterproof flats. The temperatures will peak wonderfully in the high 80s during the summer, but summer is also the rainiest time of the year in the Keys, with 4 inches on average of rainfall monthly.
by Renae Virata | This Memorial Day, it’s all about mixing it up. Don’t be afraid to look like a patriot. Splashes of red or navy as well as different red, white and blue theme variations will help you keep in theme without going overboard. Read the rest of this entry »
by Renae Virata | The weather is typical of the desert, making a visit to this scenic route an exciting summer adventure. Temps during the day reach well into the 90s (F) while nighttime temps can go as low as the mid-50s. Smart packing requires thin layers and a medium-weight jacket for night.
Arizona in general has a more casual vibe to its general style, so no need to go overboard! Cowboy boots are a staple wherever you go and no matter the temp while a light leather or denim jacket will keep you covered when the thermometer goes down.
by Renae Virata | Temperatures tend to be SUPER mild if not borderline chilly during the summer around Anchorage and the rest of the Cook Inlet area. Layers at this time of year make the most sense so you can shed them if a freak high temperature hits or it heats up a bit indoors.
Let your summer sensibilities still come into play and try soft, bright colors. Corals, sea green, and neutrals like navy, gray and mushroom gray will look great in this part of the country’s lower amount of sunlight.
