Saint Bernard: Ideal Travel Wear

April 24, 2016








Luxury Travel Advisor & Founder of Passport To Friday. Follow along on my travels and let me help you plan your dream trip or honeymoon!

I'm Chelsea.

I’ve found one of my new go-to clothing stores in Austin… and it isn’t what I expected it to be.

I’m constantly on the hunt for stores in Austin that offer something different because as much as I love Nordstrom and other mainstream stores, I don’t always want to be wearing what everyone is wearing. Saint Bernard offers something a little different from the norm.

When I was in the market for a reliable down winter coat I came across Saint Bernard but always thought it was a store just for winter wear. Entering the store a few weeks ago I was shocked to see colorful rows of swimsuits and spring dresses. Aka the PERFECT travel wear store.

One thing I love are the brands they carry. Brands like Cupcakes & Cashmere, JoieL Space, Joes, Ray-Ban, Dolce Vita, and more. What I loved too was that while some of my favorite brands were here, I also discovered new brands and found items I knew I wouldn’t find elsewhere (check out the romper below to see what I mean).

Saint Bernard Sports carries an abundance of swimsuits of all different kinds plus other essential travel accessories such as luggage, sunglasses, shoes, hats, and more.

Come shop with me at Saint Bernard!

Wednesday, April 27th from 6-9pm

I’m teaming up with fellow Austin bloggers Eclectic Energy, Dani Austin, and Style Beacon to host an event at Saint Bernard in Downtown Austin. We are sharing some of our Saint Bernard favorites. So come hang out with us and shop! See the Facebook event page here.

Plus, there will be cupcakes, champagne, $10 off your purchase, and a giveaway!

Check out some of the items you can find online or in-store during the event!

Resort Wear Lounging

I love this look for lounging around the pool and beach. You can go straight from the beach to lunch in this cover-up because it is not too sheer and has amazing crochet details. Also, every girl needs a great floppy hat! Saint Bernard offers this hat in a variety of colors which I have linked below.

One-Piece Season

One-pieces are my new favorite trend this season, and I love the colors and eclectic prints in this one. I used to shy away from one-pieces because of the tan lines, but it’s important to protect your skin so I’m usually in the shade anyways. Plus you can eat all the chips & guac and margaritas you want now too 😉 And it’s appropriate if you’re around co-workers on a trip!

Tropical Nights

Rompers are all the rage right now, and Saint Bernard has no shortage of them. I was immediately drawn to this one because of its classy cut and fun pattern. This look is great for going out to dinner, rehearsal dinners, welcome receptions, etc. Best part… this romper is only $68! Score.

While this romper is exclusive to the Austin store and not available online, I have linked a few of my other favorite rompers from Saint Bernard below!

Casual for Daytime

I love pairing jean shorts with a nicer top. This blue & white striped top still has a vacation feel but the soft material and blouse style makes it look a bit more put together. Perfect for a day of shopping, exploring a town or even as a travel outfit.

This particular top is only available in stores, so I have linked similar tops you can find online at Saint Bernard.

Summertime Accessories

Even the simplest of tropical accessories can make you feel like you are in vacation mode. I love these Dolce Vita shoes because not only are they comfortable and gorgeous, but they also go with everything. And they’re perfect for spring and summer! Saint Bernard has this Sonix phone case as well as others in their stores too. They also have these Ray Ban sunglasses.

Gorgeous Packing Essentials

A reliable (but pretty) cosmetics bag is essential for any busy traveler! I cannot count how many times I have had products leak or get smashed because they weren’t in a good bag and in turn have gotten all over my clothes. This bag is not only stylish but also sturdy, so no spilling worries while you’re traveling!

I’ve also linked some of my favorite beauty products below!
