As you have probably noticed, we’ve been quiet here at ATPT… well that’s because we were on a C R U I S E! In the next few weeks we’ll have a ton of info posting on our trip, but first things first. What to wear when you’re cruising; focusing on shorts and skorts.
We were on a cruise to three islands in Hawaii and was 7 days long. I don’t know about you all, but I try to pack light and shorts are easy to pack as well as necessary for the Hawaii weather. My sister logically pointed out that wicking fabric clothing would be great to have when down there, so we both headed to Athleta.
Now just to be upfront and totally honest, I’m not an not affiliate for the store. Since the athleisure trend is still going strong, their clothing is perfect to wear on a cruise. Onward to my picks and what I wore! (Turns out I didn’t get any shots of us in the clothing, I know, bad blogger! But seriously, how can you take pics of what you’re wearing when you’re taking pics of everything else in paradise?)
A skort is the perfect thing to get for a trip! It’s the best of both worlds; skirt and shorts. I always forget about them, but they’re gems. My sister had this skort, while I had this one. Incredibly comfy and we still looked tres chic!
We both had the same shorts in hunter green because Beth raved about how comfy they were. Turns out she was right. Even with all the eating we did on the ship, they remained comfortable. I was most surprised at all the eating aboard. Mainly carbs. After all that I’m getting back on healthy eating. (Stay tuned to the Weight Loss Chronicles for more updates on how that’s going!)
I also got shorts similar to these because they were a fun color and I could wear them in the ocean if I wanted to. Mine had built in underwear like a swimsuit, but I don’t think these do.
The great thing about all these bottoms is that they breathe in the humid weather of Hawaii. I never felt like I wanted to rip them off, which I feel like doing sometimes with jean shorts! Another plus for these is that you can scrunch them up small to fit in your suitcase. I highly recommend these for a trip to a warm weather place — and for the summer. I’m sure I’m going to get a ton of use out of them come June. If anyone gets these, let us know!
