On our roadtrip to Colorado from Southern California my wife and I made a pit stop at the Grand Canyon. I had never been before and I have to say that if you are ever nearby, you’ve got to take the time to check it out. It’s funny how you sometimes forget how beautiful nature can be. I for one get so wrapped up in my life in my little bubble at home that I forget to get out and take the time to appreciate what’s around me. The Grand Canyon is absolutely awe-inspiring and was definitely worth the short detour from our original route. It’s crazy how expansive it is and it served as the perfect backdrop for some photos. The pictures make it look like a painted, false backdrop and that’s almost what it looked like in person. We only explored for about an hour or so and had to be back in the car which brings me to the actual outfit.
When I’m traveling, comfort is always king. I never want to feel constrained–I get uncomfortable enough sitting in a car seat for eight hours so I definitely don’t to wear a shirt that’s too tight. These pleated striped shorts along with my favorite go-to pair of sneakers were the perfect way to stay comfortable while driving in the car. And while I love this tropical print t-shirt, it’s got nothing on the amazing backdrop. Keep in mind wherever you’re traveling this summer that just because you might be doing some sightseeing doesn’t mean you have to lose all sense of style and throw on a fanny pack (I feel like these are coming back in again though…). Be comfortable, especially when you’re spending hours on a plane or in a car, but always remember to keep it stylish.
