ColorfulCorsica copy

I just returned from my sailing trip to the islands of Sardinia and Corsica and have a ton of pictures and more than a few stories to share. First up: A travel style post all about the colors of Corsica!

I typically try not to shop before a big trip to save money for my travels. Seems like a no-brainer, but it’s hard to resist the temptation of new clothes for a new trip. For this trip, I allowed myself this one purchase: a simple but oh-so-nautical inspired dress.

I loved the midriff cutout and summer inspired stripes!

Upon arriving to Bonifacio, a charming French port town on the island of Corsica, I just so happened to be dressed in the appropriate color scheme; blue and white flags lined the entire city connecting the rooftops of dilapidated buildings.

I spent the day exploring the little shops of Bonifacio and indulged in the colors and flavors of the city. I picked up a few souvenirs (including my old-fashioned tradition of sending a postcard home), then happily sipped a mojito by the seaside and enjoyed a sweet pistachio gelato treat before sunset.

Dress: Forever 21

When thinking of “What to Pack” for a trip, consider the climate and the culture. I knew a conservative but cute dress would serve me well on a sailing trip in Europe. It also kept me cool in the extreme humidity of mid-summer in the Mediterranean.

I completed my fabulously French look with a pop of lip color!

Whatever your travel style is, try playing with bold colors and fun prints to make the most of your wardrobe.
