Three Ways: Packing for Travel
Jun 28, 2012
If you want to purchase an item from this set, refer to this morning’s post. The only item not there will be the handbag, the Ivanka Trump Crystal Satchel ($150).
My feelings on travel attire are well known. I believe that people should dress well when they travel because a) you never know who you will run into (I once ran into my ex, his new wife and their whole family in Minneapolis, I was stunned to say the least.), and b) sweat pants are for the house, the hospital, the gym and nowhere else.
These two outfits are perfect for work travel because they are stylish but still casual. You could also wear them to a casual dinner or an informal outing to a museum, zoo or sporting event.
The outfit on the left pairs the chambray shirt with white denim for a crisp summer look. I added an aqua necklace for color and to pump up the style. The rest of the accessories are simple but chic. Lastly, I would leave the shirt untucked or just do a front tuck, but you could do a full tuck and add a belt.
The outfit on the right layers a dotted blouse with a lightweight cardigan in a bold hue. If you dislike yellow, you could substitute cobalt, coral, fuschia, lilac, tangerine or a lighter shade of blue. And as is my custom, I paired the yellow sweater with dark green earrings for balance.
Lastly, these are a boot cut jean. A little more forgiving for travelers who gain a little weight on the road (don’t we all), and a more professional choice than skinny denim.
