While I don’t consider myself a fashionista, I do know what I like and what travels well. I prefer travel apparel that goes everywhere and with California’s fairly consistent weather, I’m able to wear Royal Robbins travel clothing all year long.
I recently traveled to Canada on the Rocky Mountaineer and I was practically dressed head to toe in Royal Robbins. The outdoor clothing company is based in Northern California and the Berkeley store is just a little too close to me to be dangerous. They have great sales and offer free shipping during special holiday sales. My husband likes their outdoor clothes for their durability and comfort. I like the fact that I can roll up my clothes in my luggage and they don’t take up precious space and don’t wrinkle much at all.
I love wearing vests. With my short frame, I feel that vests lengthen my appearance and they keep my core warm in the fall and winter. I particularly like Royal Robbins vests’ for their hand warmer pockets and the zip-secured chest pocket and inside pocket features are appreciated when I’m traveling. I’m wearing Royal Robbins Snow Wonder vest in peacock blue on Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer. I also brought this vest with me on a trip to the Christmas Markets of Germany. It kept me very warm under my coat and was perfect for wearing with a light sweater on the river boat. The polyester fleece is lightweight for easy packing and comes in a wide array of colors and sizes from extra small to extra large.
With its wrinkle-resistant fabric, the Ponte jacket is great for travel. It comes in taupe and black colors. I prefer black as is mixes and matches with the majority of my fall, winter & spring wardrobe. In this picture I’m wearing Royal Robbins Ponte Wrap Jacket on Granville Island in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The fabric blend holds its shape well and is figure flattering with the built in belt and snap front. I can dress up this jacket with one of my Stella & Dot scarves, or wear it with casual clothes.
The Royal Robbins Helium Zip Cardi is ideal for a layered look. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, this cardi is my go to sweater in the fall and winter. In this shot, I’ve dressed it up with a silk scarf at Claremont Canyon Preserve with our famous San Francisco Bay in the background. The quick-dry sweater comes in galaxy green, charcoal grey and Bordeaux wine color.
When it comes to train, plane or car travel, the Acadia fleece pant can’t be beat. I took these cozy pants with me to Germany as they are lightweight for easy packing – don’t forget to roll your clothes. I’m short, so I use the drawstring hem to easily adjust between boots with a heel or my Tiek ballet flats. Here I am pictured lounging around on the Viking Longship Gefjon after a long day in the Christmas Markets.
