The Comfiest Summer Romper | Amy West Travel

There is nothing quite so effortless and chic to sport during the summer than a smart little romper. I used to think that rompers weren't ideal for my body type. I have a long torso and many times the inseam is just way to short. However, as popularity in these simple one pieces has climbed, so have the options. With…

How to Wear Gingham

Spring is in the air and so are pretty pastel prints. Chief amongst these is gingham. That iconic, checkerboard print most commonly seen in blue and red. Personally, I love gingham. As a teenager I had my bedroom in Kentucky decked out in blue gingham and daisies. I have the best memories in that gabled room overlooking my Dad's farm. When…


Statement Jeans and Bell Sleeves

Jeans can be tricky. I told my husband this week that when investing in wardrobe pieces you can't go wrong spending a little extra money on swimsuits, jeans, and undergarments for that perfect fit. These pieces, if crafted with care, will be staples in your closet and keep you feeling as comfy as you are stylish. I'm not one to…
