I have a constant serious case of wanderlust, as I’m sure many of you do. However, because I don’t get to travel nearly enough to satisfy my travel craving, I often find myself planning out dream trips instead. Everything from where to go, what to wear, and what to eat are all taken into consideration. Here are three cultures I’m currently dying to immerse myself in:
The Greek Islands– I went to Santorini a couple years ago and it’s no secret that I’m dying to go back. Everything from the colors, to the blue roofs, to the gorgeous waters and delicious food makes for one big feast for the senses. My next trip there I’d bring lots of easy, breezy white dresses (a few with embroidered detail), cute sunnies and hats to accessorize with, plenty of gladiator sandals, and of course, always some stripes. Because I’d keep my wardrobe mostly white with a little navy blue, I’d make sure to add a punch of color with a bright tangerine nail. As for the food, give me one of their fresh Greek salads and a slice of baklava every day and I’ll be all set.
Sweden– I’ve been fascinated with Sweden since I was a child, so while it may be just a bit colder than the Greek Islands, it’s still high on my list of places to visit. The Lapland, the Ice Hotel, crossing the Artic Circle, and visiting the Stockholm Archipelago all intrigue me, but of course I would also have to visit Stockholm. Lots of layers would definitely come in handy for this trip. I’d include things like leather pants and a jacket, beanies, felt fedoras, cute booties, oversized cocoon coats, and just a few simple statement accessories (like a cuff bracelet) to jazz up my outfit. As cliché as it sounds, I’d love to partake in a traditional Swedish smorgasbord and have pancakes with lingonberry sauce. I’d also be curious to try princess cake, but I’d probably pass on the pickled herring.
Vietnam Beaches– I’ll be honest, Vietnam is a recent addition to my travel bucket list, but after I stumbled across a picture of one of their stunning beaches, there was no way it wasn’t getting added to my list of places to go. After the long winter we had, I am doing some serious daydreaming about lounging on one of those Vietnamese beaches (like Phu Quoc) in cute floral bikinis, bright cover-ups, jean cut-offs, mirrored shades, and fun sandals. On the menu would of course be banh mi and spring rolls, but I’d also love to try bun cha.
And since we’re talking dream trips, why not also talk dream wardrobe for said dream trip? Here’s just a few of the things I’d pack to explore one of these new cultures-
