Guest Post // 3 Ways to Wear It

Welcome, friends! While I am off in Japan, I have collected a lovely team of bloggers to share a variety of guest posts about travel, fashion, and everything in between! I will be back from my adventuring soon, but in the mean time please enjoy these wonderful ladies :)

For the last post of this series, I am happy to welcome Jess of This Analog Adventure to share a bit about travel style! This Canadian blogger shares my passion for photography and adventure, as well as my name!

Hello! I'm Jess and I blog over at This Analog Adventure about photography and style. I'm so thrilled to be taking over Jess' wonderful blog while she is in Japan! I'm no stranger to traveling myself, and have backpacked for a month with only a school backpack to carry my things. I learned a thing or two while I was traveling that I thought I'd share with you today! More specifically, how to get the most out of your limited clothing options. The dress I'm using is actually one I took with me on my trip, so even though its old, Maxi dresses are much more convenient for travel than you may think!

Bonus: You can get these big curls without any curling appliances! I relied solely on This method for curling my hair with just a bun ring and a hair grip. Leave the curling wand at home!

Casual and Easy
This is the simplest way to wear this dress, but is perfect for sight-seeing or uncertain weather. You can cover your shoulders with a scarf for sights that require knees and shoulder to be covered, or when the weather gets chilly. Take the scarf off if its warm out. Wear comfy walking shoes and you're all set to explore!





Dressed Up
You can easily dress up a Maxi dress by adding a belt and some sparkly accessories. This is perfect for when the weather gets a bit chilly at night because it covers your legs (and possibly that sunburn you got during the day). Add a blazer if you want to make it even warmer.




Comfy and Stylish
This is my favorite way to wear a maxi dress! Add a simple T-shirt over top and knot it at the waist to add a casual flair. A long necklace and comfy shoes are a perfect way to finish off such an easy look. A medium cross-body bag is an essential for traveling. I bought this one in Toledo, Spain when I was there a few years ago.





Thank you so much for reading! You can find more of my Travel Shenanigans over on my blog. Have a wonderful day!
