Function + Fashion Convertible Travel Clothes for the Long Haul

Ladies, it’s tough on the road. Unlike men who can look polished just by wearing black, we have a much broader spectrum when it comes to fashion. I definitely tried to put a classy spin on my trekking convertible pants, many times, and failed. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have the shoes to go with it (just my dependable trekking shoes…) so I’m determined to find options for future trips!
