Travel Style: 10 Looks with 20 Pieces | Part Two: The Jean Short | Intentional Style by Ashlee Proffitt and Megan Michele

I began this series by showing you the exact items I packed for my 10 day Italian Adventure along with a few tips on how to Build The Perfect Travel Wardrobe. Part One of the 10 Looks with 20 Pieces showcased the ever valuable Pixie Pant.

As a reminder, a few benefits to packing intentionally and purposefully (i.e. items that can be worn in multiple ways) include:

  • Lighter load
  • Less money & time spent checking luggage
  • Greater mobility (because your usual heavy load isn’t weighing you down!)
  • Less time spent deciding what to wear
  • Minimizing excess

So now that I’ve convinced you, let’s take a look at one of my favorite travel staples:
the jean short. 

Megan Michele: Jean shorts are essential to a warm-weathered wardrobe! So much can be mixed with this item and, if styled the right way, can easily be taken into cooler weather!

Ashlee: While I was in Italy (late May, early June) the mornings and evenings were cool (even chilly for this Floridian) and the days were perfectly warm. These jean shorts were the perfect solution as they could be warmed up with layers on those cool mornings and evenings. Not to mention, they are adorable and super comfy.
