I couldn’t forget to shout out one of my tried-and-true closet staples, the OV Exercise Dress. Read all about my love for this activewear meets fashion garment in my review, but TL;DR: it’s comfy, cute, and versatile. It also has a built-in shorts liner with side pockets, which will come in handy as you sightsee around the country. The Exercise Dress just so happens to be 20 percent off through August 31, so stock up and save while you can. Trust me, it’s more than worth it (I have two).
