Traveling Chic

My flight on Friday was cancelled “due to weather” by the fine folks at USAirways so I’m flying home on Saturday now.  On the bright side, the extra day gave me time to get some work off my plate and take a photo of my travel ensemble.  It was inspired by Charlize Theron’s outfit in my Traveling in Style post yesterday. 
Blazer – I love traveling in a blazer but sometimes they can be a little constricting.  This “Jogging Blazer” from Zara is made of a sweatshirt type of material that stretches for comfort.  
Jeans – I only wear J.Crew Matchstick Jeans.  They are a great price so as soon as they fade, I can buy a new pair. 
Tee Shirt – The J.Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee is super soft and also a favorite. 
Scarf – You have to travel with a scarf no matter what the season because you never know how chilly it can be on a plane. Cashmere scarves from Club Monaco are perfect. 
Tote Bag – I have a few Goyard bags from Barneys because they chic and virtually indestructible. Although, I may upgrade to a Celine tote for autumn. 
Sandals – These Roger Vivier sandals are also a favorite.  My old pair finally fell apart this summer so I bought a new pair in black and another in yellow.  Tan will be next. I also carry a pair of Chanel two-tone ballet flats in my bag in case my feet get chilly. 
Sunglasses – I wanted a pair of Ray Ban Aviators but the Classic Green Lens style wasn’t right for me. These are the over sized Classic Aviators with Golden Lenses that I found at Bergdorf Goodman
Watch – Vintage Breitling from my dad. 
Necklace – I found this gold three ring necklace at the Brooklyn Flea years ago.  I just ran into designer Elma Blint at the Williamsburg flea market recently and bought another necklace.  I love her designs.
Ring – Green, gold and wood by The Branch that I bought at Treillage always garners compliments. 
Pouch – this is my new favorite purchase that I found by Pamela Barsky at the Artists and Fleas outpost near the Brooklyn flea market.  She has a ton of cute sayings on two different size pouches.  She also sets up at Chelsea Market so check her website or twitter for the schedule. 
Magazines – I’m old school. I don’t care if you can read magazines online. I still love to travel with actual printed material to read when I travel.  
Later skaters!

    I was an avid supporter of the J Crew matchstick but I have a new favorite and they are in the same price range. Try the new Sofia straight from Lucky. I am not affiliated just love them…love the jacket from Zara..is it still available?

    I love to dress up for travelling, the planning of what to put together. You never know who you might run into on the way, might aswell treat the terminal corridors as your personal runway and work it.

    After your last post I was wondering what you’d wear…so thanks for laying that out. I’m off to buy the Jogging Blazer. Gotta love anything with a little stretch – ha!

    p.s. Do you think flight attire has changed in direct proportion to the level of service we receive?

    I adore your travel posts and I hope you continue to do them because I get so excited every time I see them. Question, I would love a pair of those sandals but I cannot find them on any online retailers websites for sale. Any tips for locating a pair?

    Much love,

    Because of this post, I considered a soft-fabric jacket yesterday. You’re right – such a great option for air-travel.
