From Travel to Night Out with Stefanie Eastburn of Style Truly
With the holidays upon us, there are parties and gatherings that require travel. But we often do not receive the luxury of time between travel and heading to that night out. Stefanie Eastburn, style blogger and influencer, of Style Truly, stopped by The Many Faces Blog to offer some tips for taking your look from Travel to Night Out.
With the holidays creeping up on us, I believe we are in tune with that Christmas song that played in the Home Alone movie, “Run, Run Rudolph” by Chuck Berry! The holidays are lovely, but they can also be pretty hectic especially with the added travel to see friends and family. With all the added stress of travel, I like to put my mind at ease with my fashion piece options. There is something to be said about traveling and yet still feeling put-together and fashion-forward without having to bring along three different suitcases!
When I travel, I like to pack just one suitcase (a carry-on bag). So, I really like to plan out all my looks in order to get the most out of what I am bringing. I like to take a step back to evaluate the best options I can transition with and then collaborate pieces. Lets face it how much do we actually wear versus what we bring along when we are traveling?
I don’t know about you, but I find myself always going to my basic pieces when I am out of town. So, I like to transition my basic pieces in multiple and different ways, keeping my looks fresh, fashion-forward, and effortless. I know, a lot of you are probably thinking, how do you pack with only one carry-on and still bring everything you need? I promise it is possible.
What are the Fashion Basics?
Basics are a go-to, easy-to-style piece that can go with everything and anything such as:
- Sweater or jacket
So aside from your basics, I also think about the shoes I am going to bring to transition with as well as my jewelry accessories. I love having my accessories with me to really turn up the level of my outfits, and it also helps when I literally can’t find room in my suitcase for everything. The number one accessory that I find myself always needing that is not only fashionable, but functional is a watch. As most of you may know, Armitron Watches have been my go-to brand lately in my watch accessories, especially when traveling. They have so many great pieces you can use to dress up or dress down your looks which makes traveling with Armitron ideal. By finding the right watch in my accessory collection, I can literally plan my entire wardrobe for my trip.
Overall I would normally plan on bringing 2 pairs of denim to transition, maybe a skirt or dress, 2-3 pairs of shoes, 3-4 tops that I can transition into a few different looks, and think about my jackets and accessories. This all helps make traveling in style functional and doable with one carry one bag.
Riding on a Jet Plane
For this travel look, I picked one Armitron watch (although that was very difficult to pick just one) in order to create my transition look from airport to night out. I wanted something easy and somewhat comfortable for an airplane ride, so I put together my go-to denim, my Yummie body suit, added a poncho for cozy fashionable warmth, I left earrings off, added comfortable flats, and of course added my Rose Gold Armitron watch for functional fashion.
Let’s Make a Night of It
Usually when I travel and arrive at my destination, things are already all planned out. I have to think quickly about what clothes to change into from travel to go-out mode and still look fashionable.
For this look, I kept it effortless and added chic style to the mix. With that being said, I kept my jeans and top the same, changed my flats to heels, kept my watch and added long earrings to dress it up a bit. I changed into a chic blazer for a more night-out feel and added a small handbag. This look is perfect for a transitional look with the goal being minimal items to travel with to my destination.
