I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.
Long road trips and weekend getaways, with family or friends, to a different city or state or country – I just love traveling. Seeing new places and meeting new people is a fun adventure, and we might do it a lot more often if not for the responsibilities and logistics of school, work, and activities.
Even with our schedules getting busier as the kids get older, we’ve managed to schedule quite a few fun trips for this spring and summer! It has become my mission to pack wisely for these trips, so finding versatile wardrobe pieces that pack well is a top priority. I just found a dress that meets all of the above criteria (and has a whole lot of awesome extra features) making it the perfect spring travel dress.
Have you ever shopped with Orvis? I will admit I had not heard of Orvis before a few months ago, but their new spring line for women has won me over with pieces that are both feminine and functional for an active lifestyle!
The Florence Travel Dress is a part of the lovely Orvis spring line.
This classic popover-style dress is absolutely divine for travel for so many reasons. Let’s start with these functional details: wrinkle-resistant, quick-drying, and moisture-wicking. The fabric is SPF 50 and and the sleeves can be long or rolled up. There’s a zipped pocket on one hip to keep important things close and safe. So. Much. Function.
Function is one side and fashion is the other. I love the versatility of this dress. You can never go wrong with black, especially for someone like me who is likely to spill while traveling, but also for anyone going for a classic look. The Florence Travel Dress worked perfectly for church with some bold red jewelry and tan wedges, but for travel, I’ve paired it with these great, comfortable Merrell Around-Town sandals. I can just imagine wearing this exact ensemble on those trips when you’ll be walking for miles a day to sightsee and find new adventures!
The length of the Florence Travel Dress is modest and flattering and it has just the right cut where I’m not worried about the whole skirt flying up when the Nebraska wind rears its ugly head…which is happening every single day right now!
Can you tell I really love this dress? I may even wear it when I hop on a plane to head to Nashville this weekend (with a great pair of cowboy boots) because it will take me from plane to day to night effortlessly! And I will pack it for many trips to come for these same reasons – and to keep my packing simple and streamlined!
