Travel Style: Chic and Comfortable

Travel Style

When it comes to traveling I always lean towards the more comfortable and chic look. I mean really who wants to be on a plane or a train-- or whatever you maybe traveling in-- sitting uncomfortably for a long period of time. I never really had to deal with Holiday traveling until I started dating my fiance, he's from PA while most of my family is in NY, so over the time I have learned about travel dressing and packing. I have skipped the heavy shoulder bags for my favorite bigger tote bags (at least for the weekend stays). For me these are easier to carry (especially on the subway) and easier not to over pack (I'm a notorious over packer).We usually travel during the week day so work appropriate comfortableness plays a big roll. Your basic long sleeve top and jeans with your favorite booties is the perfect travel look that can take you through your work day, if your office is cool with the casual "Friday" cool. A small handbag is handy so that you can easily access your wallet, cellphone and any other small goodies. Also helpful to have a small bag during the work day just in-case you need to go out during lunch. Why get all dressed up while traveling? Some may stick to their sweats but you never know who you'll meet. Every time I think about my travel clothes I always think would someone believe or would want to work with me if I told them I was a fashion blogger? Because honestly...you never know who you might run into.

Jacket: Elie Tahari
Shirt: H&M
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Shoemint
Necklace: Inpink
Bag: c/o Rebecca Minkoff
Tote: Kenneth Cole (freebie at the Independent Handbag Awards)
Yes, I pretty much live in my H&M shirt. It's my go to shirt for my relaxed days. It goes with everything...plus it's fun to mix prints with accessories like a printed scarf, which adds some fun and chicness to the over all look. I also can't get enough of my new Shoemint boots (I finally discovered the greatness that is Shoemint) and my new necklace from Inpink. You can never go wrong with a layered necklace for a little bit of glitter.

What do you wear during your travels?

  8. Super cute! I have to sit on a plane for 6 hours so I definitely opt for comfortable. It's also hard to wear a lot of accessories since you have to take them all off to go through security. I wear lots of layers because I'm always cold on the plane. Also no lace up shoes! hehe

    Happy Holidays!

  9. When I travel, I tend to give up on finding the right thing and go with a maxi dress haha... it helps that I'm usually going someplace warm. Definitely coming back to this the next time I'm running off ;)
