Packing for summer in the mountains can be tricky. After looking at the forecast for an upcoming trip to Aspen, I realized I would need some warmer pieces too. So the goal is to be warm, but not wintery looking. Light layers are key. You’ve got to be able to strip a layer and be ready (and cute) for whatever the mountains have in store that day.
Lucky for me, I had the chance to swing by Vince in Houston’s River Oaks District just days before hopping on the flight to Aspen. This bright blue button down is lightweight and easy to layer underneath a bomber jacket. For daytime, I wore it with denim shorts and sneakers. Evenings are still pretty casual in the mountains, so a slide sandal is totally kosher with a suede legging. This pant is classic and I’ve seen it in every Vince collection for the past few years.
So if you’re ready for a cooler summer adventure or even a shop-ahead kind of gal excited to put together a fall wardrobe, these staples are on point.
