Hey hey Monday – I’m on a jet plane! While I’m above the clouds en route to New York (probably pinching myself) I wanted to share some travel style with you. I often think it’s a little tricky to be stylish and super comfortable but I have some rules I like to stick by…
First off, I know you’re probably thinking I claimed to be stylish and you’re wondering what this Aladdin style scarf is all about. Well, I saw and loved something similar on Pinterest and, being that it was way too hot out for a regular ol’ neck scarf, round the waist it went. I, at least, am diggin’ it and I will never be without a scarf on a flight.
Second, the softies. Cashmere if you can and size up just for extra snuggle. I opted for this soft grey Boden v neck and he’s a peach, the softest fuzziest little guy (2 sizes up gave the perfect slouch). And this jacket, partly because of the colour, partly because it’s the only jacket I’ve packed and I refuse to waste luggage space on my jacket… when I can wear it and squash in one more pair of shoooooes, ahem, ten pairs, cough cough, what? Who said that…
As far as bags and shoes go you want them to be easy. A cross body is perfect (because, you know, I’m also trundling a cabin case full of shoes) and this leather and suede saddle bag from Next is deceptively large and the perfect seventies shape for the new season.
And now security… you know the drill – liquids out, jewellery off, laptop and ipad all in separate trays, jacket and scarf unravelled, cabin case on the conveyer… and then, ‘Madam, your shoes?’. Don’t make it any harder. Slip ons please. I am quite obsessed with espadrilles right now and these pretties from Daniel are as soft as butter and they work just as well with leather leggings when that day comes.
And that’s it – travel style deconstructed. Done.
