Traveling with Coldwater Creek & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

May 26, 2016

Vacation season is here!  Do you have anything planned?  As much as I love vacation, I don’t love packing. How can we look stylish and pulled together on the go?

Coldwater Creek comes to the rescue with the perfect packing solution:  their Destinations line of clothing is totally packable, washable, comfortable, and wrinkle free!

The Destinations Maxi Skirt is made with four separate panels for a beautiful and flattering flow. 

This Destinations Drape-Neck Shell has such a lovely shape to it and comes in several pretty colors. I’m wearing the Robin Egg blue for a nice pairing with my turquoise jewelry.

Both items are available in petite and plus sizes too! 

Note: Coldwater Creek is cut generously, so be sure to check the size chart and think about sizing down.  

These pieces can be dressed up or down and worn together or separately.  They look beautiful and ready to go straight out of the suitcase or overnight bag.

I had fun imagining myself on a leisurely stroll through a beach side village.
The outfit would work just as well for exploring a busy city or for a night on the town!

    Dawn Lucy you can't beat a black maxi and top for the summer (which is weird for me as I usually avoid black) – you've just elevated this simple combo with the gorgeous hat, bag and sandals, I love it!

    Thank you for hosting, hope you have a fantastic weekend 🙂

    You are so stinkin' adorable! I haven't visited Coldwater Creek in forever but I am totally needing a new black maxi skirt. Love the way this one flows. You look so great in the blue…and you rock a hat….and I'm still drooling over that bag!! Have a super weekend!

    Love this blue top and that tote is so chic too!

    Dawn Lucy, this robin's egg blue is so fabulous on you! I love the drapiness of the top. It's demure and sexy all at once! And who doesn't love a fabulous maxi skirt? I have always lusted after Coldwater Creek clothing but have never actually owned any of it. Perhaps some day!

    Have a great weekend!

    Thank you so much for featuring my outfit! You're so sweet!

    I am loving these loose, flowy pieces by Coldwater Creek. Adding the floppy woven hat was perfect for this. Those sandals though I love – truly the icing on the cake, for me. Make sure you enter this beauty in my linkup, Dawn Lucy.

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! <3 Ada.

    Hi friend! First off, I need a cool summer beach bag.. going to the beach for our Anniversary. Love yours and the sea blue color you chose for the top, a pretty shell that will look great paired so many ways! Love the maxi skirt! I am behind on the maxi trend!
