Glam Gal JoJami has been on the go for the last year, traveling around the USA spotting fashionistas from all over the country. Today she is reporting from Breckenridge, Colorado.
“Sometimes you have to think small and simplify life!“
That’s what our latest lady on the street, Becky Johnson of Hays, Kansas had to say when we asked her what her secret was to looking casual.
With the drama of the mountains, the rugged terrain, spectacular wildflowers, the sheer grandeur of nature all around you, dressing for the mountains has to be simple.
Breckenridge, CO has the cozy, unhurried feel of a quaint Alpine village. It’s a place that beckons you back to the simple things in life that don’t involve a hand held device. That means you don’t need a lot of clothes but the ones you do bring need to be versitale.
Here is an easy style recipe that you can mix and match whether you are vacationing in the mountains or at home running out to the grocery store.
The Simple Little Vest:
If you can find a casual, lightweight vest it will serve you well in your wardrobe. It’s just perfect for layering for the upcoming transition into fall. A vest can be worn with straight or boot-cut jeans or with matching capri pants.
The Striped T-Shirt:
The boat neck style of this t-shirt is what makes it work with the vest. It peeks underneath just perfectly. The 3/4 sleeve also keeps things looking cool but can hide your arms if need be.
Comfy Pants and Flat Shoes: Go with an easy care fabric that does not wrinkle and you have a recipe for comfort that will stay looking fresh. The style of these pants is really flattering. They have the look of a straight legged pant but are still roomy enough to facilitate your active lifestyle. Her flat run-around shoes (Merrells) are oh so cute! Not too clunky and very practical.
Sparkle, Sparkle: We like the way she has added a little bit of color and bling to her casual style with this chunky crystal necklace. Your choice of jewelry is where you can really let your personality shine. If you like to keep things simple, there is no need for a necklace but it can be a nice touch if you like to accessorize.
Stylish Sunglasses: These Tyra glasses are nice quality and look updated with her outfit.
