Let’s Take a Tour…

Hi there fellow vmacs! It’s Viv here from the fashion and style blog, Fashion Truffles. I was thrilled when Victoria asked me to stop by today to cover for her while she’s off to France (insert jealous face here). I absolutely love to travel and planning outfits for two weeks can be a bit daunting, wouldn’t you say? It’s key to pack comfortable and versatile pieces so you can mix and match and get the most out of them. The temperatures in Europe are starting to rise so it’s going to be a h-o-t summer! Comfy shorts and a classic tee are a must for warm days of walking and touring the beautiful French countryside. However, museums and restaurants can get a bit chilly so it’s good to carry a cozy cardigan that you can throw on quickly. Add a spacious tote, comfy walking shoes, a good camera, and simple accessories and voila! You’re ready to spend a day looking chic in France…

Michael Stars white tee, $54, AllSaints shorts, $55, Topshop cotton knit cardigan, $76, Gucci metal sunglasses, $325, BaubleBar Disco Ball Bangle, $10, BaubleBar Medium Monogram, $105, ILIA Gloss “Balmy Night”, €22, TOMS canvas flat, $48, 3 1 Phillip Lim leather bag, $895, Smythson Inspirations and Ideas textured-leather notebook, $80

Don’t forget to stop by Fashion Truffles for more daily fashion and style inspiration. And a BIG thanks to Victoria for having me over today! xoxo

About the post: Viv is honestly just about the sweetest girl I know, and she’s got mad style to boot! She’s a seasoned traveler too, and I knew she was just the person to ask for travel recs. She knows me well — though I didn’t get a classic pair of Toms for my trip, I got a version of their new-ish ballet flats and they’re very comfy! Be sure to stop by her blog for daily fashion and style eye candy.

  1. Ooooh I super love that outfit. It’s definitely making me rethink my obsession with bright colours, and appreciate neutrals a bit more!
