Tourist Outfit

By Masfashion


I recently read somewhere that when we travel, “we are all tourists, so get over it.” Honest and truthful. When I travel, especially to Europe/UK, I hate for people to know I am a tourists. I try to blend in as much as possible. One with the people. However, I have been told by my sweet, sweet husband that I scream American. Bah humbug! I don’t know what it is about the way we look, perhaps we do our make-up daily and that gives us away, but even I can spot an American from a mile away. Despite the bad portrayal we Americans get I always think we look put together and very maintained. It isn’t that I am not extremely proud of my heritage, because I am, but sometimes it is fun to play something else. Star in another role.

Even though it isn’t London or Paris a few weeks ago I was a tourist in New Orleans. I fully embraced my tourist persona and wore sneakers, comfy t-shirt, and breathable shorts so I could site-see all day without one single complaint. And it worked! Despite my efforts in the past to look fashion/cool to tour a new city I always lose site of what I am seeing because I am blinded by pain from those really uncomfortable shoes. Slowly but surly I am learning to embrace the comfortable look over the, “I totally live here and know all the cool cafes to eat at. Can’t you tell? Don’t I look like a local?” And you know what is even better? Half the time the locals know a lot of walking is involved and dress comfier than I do! If that isn’t enough to turn you into a comfy tourist dresser, maybe you are a lost cause. Just kidding! But I do recommend you buy a great pair of sneakers/flats (a pair that is comfy and cute) for this summers excursions! To make sure you are covered I found my 20 favorite pairs! I promise this will save your feet, your trip, and most likely your relationship!
