Shop Your Way: Packing for South Africa with Sears

Remember when I told you that I was a member of Collective Bias®? This is another sponsored post that I am so happy to be a part of! I'm so excited to share it with you. Before you get worried, remember that all the opinions are my own!

It's winter in South Africa. The weather can change by as much as 30 degrees throughout one day. I knew that I'd need to find clothes that would be versatile. Layering will be my best friend in South Africa. I decided that the best Sears Style pieces for me to buy would be a pair of shorts, a cardigan, a camisole, and cute walking shoes. I downloaded the Shop Your Way app before I went to Sears. It's got hand picked coupons, offers, and it stores all your rewards information in one place. (My phone actually died in the store so I didn't get to use the app at the time of purchase. The cashier looked it up for me and the information magically appeared in the app after my phone was charged!) You can see my whole trip here.

Here they are! I chose the cardigan because it can be professional and casual. The color is perfect for my skin tone. It can say summer or winter with some simple accessory changes. The camisole is just a travel staple. When layering is important, a camisole is the way to go. The shorts are great because they are convertible. Sometimes other countries have different standards of appropriate dress. These shorts can become Bermuda shorts in a matter of moments. And the shoes are the best! I broke them in the week before while walking around the city. They couldn't be more comfortable and I couldn't be happier.

And here are three restyles using some of what I plan to pack for the trip.

Which one is your favorite? You can see more Sears Style in the Live SoFab Summer Magazine.

By the time you read this I'll be on my way to South Africa, rocking some of my new looks. Versatile pieces are definitely the way to go for international travel. What are your go to travel pieces?
