Vacation Dressing: Temple edition

travel blog, south east asia travel

Since we're in full blown summer territory and most of you are well checked out of work and either literally or figuratively (I'm talking to you Mr. Maldives screensaver) on your way to some far flung destination, I thought it was time I deviated from the 9 to 5 office wear to something a little more vacation friendly. 

I recently spent a weekend in Bangkok (full travel post coming shortly!) and visited the Grand Palace, which was astounding in its grandeur and (almost) made the scorching 37C heat bearable.  But like most sacred sites, a conservative dress code was required for entry. This has always been a huge head scratcher for me - from temples in Cambodia to cathedrals in Italy, I've struggled with figuring out how to cover myself appropriately while not dissolving into a pool of sweat. 

That's when I discovered the power of this airy, knee grazing dress - well covered enough to get you into any religious monument yet breezy enough to keep you from getting a heat stroke. You can easily pull it over (and just as easily wiggle out of) your tank+shorts combo for the length of the visit  or wear it by itself without feeling weighed down by your skinny jeans.

What to wear to work: Prints on Prints

When I was little, I used to hate florals or (let's be honest) prints of any kind and any patterned piece of clothing would be quickly relegated to the back of my closet. Lately though, I've been dipping my toes back in,  and what started off innocently with this floral pencil skirt has quickly spiraled into this full blown floral on floral ensemble.
