What I Wore to Explore Tel Aviv, Israel

I know my last post about my trip to Israel painted it in a bit of a negative light. However, that was just one day of the trip. My time spent exploring Tel Aviv was relaxing and beautiful. It also included a lot of walking!
We stayed at the Sheraton hotel and then meandered along the cost to Old Jaffa and spent the day exploring the Flea Market and Jaffa Port. (More on that in this Tel Aviv travel post!)
*Note: there are no expectations or requirements for how to dress for women in Israel (like in Jordan, for example) – unless you are visiting religious sites. Then, your shoulders, knees and chest should be covered. I always dress modestly, though, when visiting new countries.
Now, wearing Keds with this dress wouldn’t have been my first choice…but it turned out to be so comfortable for all that walking that I didn’t care what it looked like! The temps were in about the mid-70s (Fahrenheit), and a lightweight, breathable dress like this was perfect. (This dress is sold out, but Stylewe has a TON of similar options.) And my Keds have become my favorite walking/traveling shoes because they are so darn comfortable. These were the only shoes I had even brought along for this trip.
While my Keds have become my favorite travel shoes, this teal crossbody bag has become my favorite travel bag! I’ve had it for exactly a year now, and use it constantly…and it is still in fantastic condition! I love using a crossbody for traveling not only because it’s more comfortable when walking, but it also makes you less of a target for theft. Not that Tel Aviv has a lot of issues with this, but it’s always good to be on your guard when traveling to a new place. I like that this crossbody also zips on the inside (making it even more difficult for a pickpocketer).
Exploring Tel Aviv also meant eating as much food as I possibly could and hitting up a few happy hours, haha. There are so many lovely, little restaurants, bars and cafes…especially near Jaffa Port. I was really grateful by the end of the day to be wearing a comfortable dress, that put absolutely no pressure on my stomach! Haha.

It’s a good idea, no matter where your adventure takes you, to have travel insurance. You never know what might happen! Whether you get sick before your trip and can’t go, or you become sick or injured while on your adventure – being covered with travel insurance is a must. Some credit card companies do provide this service (check with yours), or you can get a quote from companies such as Squaremouth to find the best plan for you and your adventure. (This is the company I, personally, use. They are even recommended by Forbes!) To get a free quote, click here.

I’m definitely more of Converse girl when it comes to traveling and sneakers 🙂
Thank you so much!
Tel Aviv sounds and looks lovely! I just love this dress. It is sooo beautiful on you and fits the background perfectly. I do a crossbody and sneakers for trips too. I love the Ked’s with the dress. It is adorable.
Aw, thank you so much, Courtney!
This is exactly something I would wear. Although my memory of Keds doesn’t include any arch support. Thankfully I have my orthotics, and with those would be a happy camper. I think they look great with the dress!! And perfect reason to wear a dress like this, may I say??
This is true – they don’t provide much in the form of arch support. Thank you so much, Jodie! 🙂
Yes to crossbody bag and sneakers on trips. Also comfy sandals of warm enough!
Yess! I’m all for comfy sandals too. 🙂
