*with my band shirts I generally pick a men’s style because they are less fitted than a women’s.

I didn’t think I was going to get it finished but did. This is look number three from the One Trip, three women, three different styles challenge that was requested this week. Look number one – Romantic Style, and look number two – Boho Style are from Tuesday and Wednesday’s posts. I tried to get this one up last night but honestly, my kids would not settle and I just couldn’t sit and focus. But since it is Friday it fits well with my regular posting schedule anyway.

I’m going to be honest and say that this list is right up my alley. It fits my style perfectly and  kind of want to go through and buy everything ;) You may notice that I didn’t include any shorts in any of these selections. For the romantic list I was requested not to, and for these last two I was thinking about it but considered it unnecessary since there are two dresses and the pants can either be rolled or pushed up anyway. Shorts aren’t as prevalent in many European countries like you see here in North America and a lot of times the people that you do seeing wearing shorts are tourists. But if you think you would like to bring a pair they can easily be swapped for something or even rolled-up small and slipped in your shoe while packing, because they won’t take much room. Note that the long floral dress can also be left open and worn as a kimono style, long over-shirt. This gives even more outfit options when you have pieces that can work several ways.

18 Outfit Options are at the bottom of this post.

I wanted to note that the Elephant scarf/bandana from J.Crew is not only beautiful but for a good cause. I am a sucker for animal causes and when I chose this piece I originally picked it because I loved it and it fit with the aesthetic (and I adore elephants) and then I read on the J.Crew website:

“Founded in 1977, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust rescues and protects orphaned elephants and rhinos in East Africa from ivory poaching and extinction. To date, they’ve successfully rehabilitated 190 elephant orphans before reintegrating them into the wild. In their honor, we teamed up with Brooklyn-based artist Hugo Guinness to create this limited-edition scarf, featuring an illustration of our friend Edie the elephant. An adventurous (and slightly rebellious) teenager, Edie was rescued by DSWT back in 1999 when she was just four months old. Fifty percent of the retail price from the sale of this scarf will be donated to the Trust.” 

The scarf also comes in a plum colour.

I hope you enjoy these selections as much as I do. Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I may have to steal these dresses instead of showing them to my daughter! 😂 Thanks for putting this together, she will love it.

  2. I meant to post that last comment on the boho version. There’s a lot of things I love in this one too. I’ve got the converse already and Led Zeppelin is my band. Love the dress which could be a kimono as well. Thanks again Sara! You hit these out of the park! Lana

    • I seriously love old band tees and I adored the colours on this one. I swear I have more band tees than plains ones. The dresses in the boho are totally fab. I’ve been dancing around buying the Marks and Spencer one because it’s just so great. I’m glad all the choices worked for you. It was fun, so thank you for the inspiration, and I hope you guys have the trip of s lifetime.

  3. This selection is very cool, Sara. You rocked it. I even like the flat black sandals (I say even because I generally look to sandals the give me more height). Awesome choices all around. But of course, I already love your style. Cheers, Ardith

    • Thanks Ardith :) I used to wear platforms so much even my closest friends thought I was 5’7″. It was so funny to see their reactions when the shoes came off. How is the hubby doing?
