Tunic for Travel Wear 2 (Excursion Attire)

Travel Wear---Tunics

Tunic as Travel Wear for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Excursion Attire

Quote of the day: “Live, so you do not have to look back and say: ‘God, how I have wasted my life.'” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Continuing with the travel theme and what clothing to take, I’ll show ways to style the tunic for “play.” On any type of trip, most people plan to go on an excursion or two.  The excursion might be a planned outing with  a professional guide or it could be a do-it-yourself jaunt if you like to find out about the location on your own.  Either way, the realism is that you must have good walking shoes. I showed how to wear this same tunic out for a nice dinner here.

50’s Tunic: I tucked the front of my tunic into my shorts for this post. The sneakers are some of my favorites since they are colorful yet comfy!  I do wear my orthotics in them for long walking treks.

60’s Tunic: Since Nancy was vacationing in a cooler region, we had her add a long sleeve shirt under the tunic for warmth.  And she needed it!!!

70’s Tunic: Our original plan included pink Keds for walking (that her orthotics fit into); however the pink Keds ripped open on the trip—eek! Thus mom had to purchase these white tennies, which served her well for the rest of her trip.

    • Me too about starting to love them….I like mom’s because of the waist!

  • Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Love the outfit for 70s best. However, I would wear it with heels

    • Mom has worn it that way at home…but she didn’t take “real” heels for the trip!! It would look good on you!

    All of you and the tunics are adorable and I love all of the shoes at the end but the first pair are SO cute!

    • Aren’t they cute…and if you’re lucky to be a size 8…then they could be yours!!

  • Cute shoes! Thanks for sharing via Midlife Bloggers 🙂

  • You all look fabulous. I particularly love the Nordstrom shoes and the butterfly top!

  • I really love tunics but haven’t found any that compliment my body. #HighLatitudeStyleLinkUp

    • Hi Antoinette! I think that’s probably why I don’t wear tunics often…I don’t feel like they are super flattering with a larger chest. But lately, I’ve decided I don’t always have to dress form flatteringly…sometimes I want to wear different styles!! Or I need to find one like my mom’s that has a waistband!!

  • Love your shoes and your mom’s owl earrings! Great assortment of colorful walking shoes at unbelievable prices too! Now that I live near Nordstrom Rack I might have to make a trip down there to check out that first pair of shoes you showed!

    • I love the Rack for shoes!!! Lucky you and your feet!!!
