Occasionally Stylish : Guest Post- Marissa's Weekend Getaway

I am so excited to have Marissa guest posting with me today! She was lucky enough to be swept away on a romantic weekend with her husband, and she's showing us how to avoid the dreaded "tourist trap" of fashion! I know you will love not only her sense of style, but also her sense of humor!




Hi I'm Marissa from Shabby, Chic, and Chic and I am a shopaholic...oh wait, this isn't my Wednesday group meeting! Let's start over, Hi I'm Marissa and I am from Shabby, Chic, and Cheap and I also happen to be best bliends (that's blogger and friend combined, and yes I made it up) with Kate and because we're both addicted to Old Navy {*ahem* we're still totally open for sponsorship}, fashion, and we have the two cutest kiddos we instantly clicked! 

I love reading Katie's blog and one of my favorite series she has is the Occasionally Stylish post, when we decided to do cameos on each others blogs I knew right away I wanted to do a guest post for that series. I figured the perfect time would be my anniversary weekend. What's better than going out of town? No one knows you so you can dress any way you want, pretend your a professor from Harvard, and talk with an English accent. I may or may not be guilty of those previous statements. 

Seriously though, just because you're a tourist and going to be exploring new places doesn't mean you can't be stylish and comfortable at the same time. Yes, it really is possible. Now I have to admit I have been guilty of the typical 'tourist uniform' ie. jeans, sneakers, and t-shirt but even those staples can be dressed up a bit, this is my version of a chic, comfy, yet stylish tourist outfit. 


The Receipt:
Jeans - Old Navy {similar}
Tank - H&M {similar}
Cardigan - H&M {similar}
Purse - Old Navy {similar}
Booties - Old Navy (see why they should sponsor us?) {similar}
Necklace and Earrings - Forever 21 {similar necklacesimilar earrings}






I hope you guys will stop by my blog and visit some time for some outfit inspiration!

In case your wondering after walking all around downtown Charleston, I was VERY happy to see a Rack Room Shoes on King Street, so I could get out those wedges and into these...

Hi Marissa! Cute post :)

I agree, whenever I travel I forget that I don't have to wear a fanny-pack (ok I've never actually worn a fanny-pack past 1997, but you know what I mean) and jeans. It's possible to be stylish AND comfortable.

Thanks!
Sometimes it takes a little more effort but you can definitely be a comfortable and chic tourist.
