As much as I love to travel I have a difficult time choosing what to wear while we're traveling. I love to be comfortable, but I dislike feeling sloppy. I'm not a fan of t-shirts and I really dislike wearing tennis shoes unless I'm exercising. I also want clothes that can work for strolling through a city, playing in the park or, with a change of shoes and accessories, a nice evening out. Did I mention I don't want to take more than one carry-on size suitcase? Yeah, I can be difficult to please when it comes to clothing.
Fresh Produce Clothing for Travel
I recently had the opportunity to try a couple outfits from Fresh Produce, a casual and resort wear line of clothing. As I browsed their website I was attracted to the bright colors and the “breezy-ness” of the clothes. The dresses look relaxed but still feminine, the summer capris and pants appear comfortable but not frumpy, and the tops are fun.
I had the opportunity to choose a couple of outfits from their catalog to wear and review. Choosing from the colorful dresses proved to be a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. I chose the Bali Cafe Wrap Dress for a couple of reasons. Wrap dresses always flatter, no matter your shape. I also liked that the dress is a faux-wrap- no embarrassing moments of the wrap blowing apart and showing a bit more than you want to flaunt. Finally, it won't wrinkle; a quick shake and it's ready to go.
This dress went from PR meeting to ice cream parlor opening to carnival to outdoor concert. It was perfect for a hot, sunny day and I never felt like it “wilted” around me. This has become my “go-to” dress when I want to feel pretty but not especially made up. I love it!
I'm not a fan of shorts; length and fit seem to be issues for me. And while I love lightweight skirts, I like the coverage of shorts. Thankfully Fresh Produce has skorts that are both attractive and functional. I love that you can't tell it's a skort! I paired the Adventure Skort with a colorful shirt, the Logo Fem T.
We spent the morning at a parade where I sat in the grass, squatted to take photos and spent a lot of time in positions that would have been un-ladylike in a regular skirt. I loved the freedom the skort gave me. The top, though the fit was a bit looser than I prefer, fit nicely. The length is perfect, not so short that it bares skin but not so long that you appear to be trying to cover your bum. It was a great active day outfit.
Buying Fresh Produce
Fresh Produce clothing is available online and can be shipped to over 200 countries. They also have adorable dresses for little girls.
I found Fresh Produce to have great clothing for busy, active women and I personally recommend them.
