One of mine and Mr. Runway Chef’s favorite things to do is day trip to new places, be it a winery, exploring a quaint town, a beach day, or a flea market adventure. Usually these excursions are all day affairs that at some point end with dinner (shopping, drinking wine and laying on a beach can sure make a girl hungry). While it’s certainly not like packing for a trip (because let’s be real, then we would be talking about 10 bags instead of just a duffel), I still like to be prepared to be fashionably flexible for whatever the day may bring.

The option to change from my winery casual into my night-time best doesn’t always present itself, so having a versatile base is key. Nothing, in my eyes, beats the versatility of a maxi. I mean, it’s like wearing pajamas, and who doesn’t like that?! It’s comfy enough for a car ride, casual enough for day time activities, and, with the right accessories, dressed up enough for dinner. Talk about fashionably flexible! For the above fashionably flexible look, I used a black maxi with a few fun details (bright blue edging around the neck and sheer stripes) that would allow this piece to stand out on its own. Throw on a scarf, some sunnies, and a dressy pair of sandals and it’s even better. Instead of carrying around a huge tote, opt for a chic and totally trendy backpack. It’ll be big enough to hold things like a clutch (used during the day as a wallet, then at night as the actual clutch), maps, snacks and your HP Envy x2 with Intel Inside®. Bonus, this frees up your hands allowing you more wine tasting which is a total win-win in my book. Before dinner, ditch the bag and sunnies, throw on some earrings and transition the scarf into a pretty shawl.

Now that we’re dressed and ready to go, let’s get to the fun part of this “excursion”…
