After a busy work week, sometimes the only thing you want is a change of scenery and to spend some time outdoors. Perhaps you’re planning a spring trip somewhere new and exotic. Or, you’re looking forward to spending long afternoons in the summer sun at your favorite music festival, like our celebrity inspiration Ashley Greene at Coachella:
Regardless of your destination or location, the following comfortable and stylish options will allow your inner sense of adventure to come to life. Even if the only excursion you’re planning this weekend is a bike trip across town to a new park.
Feel the sun on your arms with a versatile sleeveless blouse and keep cool in bright linen shorts paired with a skinny patterned belt.
Add some flair to your exploration ensemble with a woven fedora and wayfarer sunglasses:
Keep your hands free and tote the essentials (map, sunscreen, and picnic lunch) in a Navajo print inspired backpack:

Can’t decide whether to wear a pair of sturdy shoes or strappy sandals? Try a hybrid. Your feet will be able to breathe and they will thank you for the sturdy soles during a long trek:

Now that you have outfit inspiration, you are free to focus on the important things: seeking new adventures and soaking up that sun!
