I’ve long been a fan of UK high-street fashion brand River Island and I’m so excited to announce that they just recently launched their US website. Now all of us in the States can enjoy the same affordable but stylish fashion as our friends across the pond, and just in time for fall layering!
For their launch, I’ve partnered with River Island to showcase some of my favorite pieces in a variety of looks over the next 3 months. Here’s my first round of outfits so read on and let me know what you think!
Fun fact: I backpacked around the world to 11 countries in 78 days when I was 25. And aside from all the sights and cultures I experienced, another amazing thing I gained from the trip was the experience of meeting other travelers from all over the world and hearing their stories at each hostel I stayed at. You see at hostels there’s a uniquely open and inviting social atmosphere. Common spaces with their cafes, bars, games, and books are designed with congregating in mind. I’d often meet people in the lobby playing board games or talking about their day’s adventures. It was a great spot to pick up travel tips, or even make new friends and find people to go out with. It’s since been a while since I’ve stayed at a hostel, but luckily I got the chance to relive that experience again on this trip to Iceland!
