Hey everyone! I’m back from my NJ / NYC trip. I’m exhausted but in the best possible way. I’ll have plenty of photos from the trip (including outfits of course) to share with you over the next few days, but I thought I’d start with what I wore on the trip home yesterday.

For air travel I don’t really have a go-to uniform, but in the summer I generally wear more coverage on one half of my body than the other. Since airplanes have a magical way of always being either too hot or too cold, this way there’s always at least one half of me that’s comfortable. I will still complain about the other half of me though. Hash tag first world problems.

Besides that, I go pretty minimal on the jewelry so there’s less to take off at security, and I like to wear my hair down because a ponytail against an airplane seat in its full upright and locked position makes me bend my head forward like I’m praying the whole flight. If I did pray, I would probably pray for a separate plane for babies.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Man, it feels like so long since my last outfit post! Don’t lie…you’ve missed me. I know it. I really have been wearing clothes this week, I’ve just been taking some time off to relax on my Christmas vacation. But I thought I’d take a moment to show you what I wore on my travel day Monday. A long chambray and leggings is nothing crazy, but it was great for the plane and infinitely better looking than a velour sweatsuit.

The most exciting part of this outfit was the SHOES! I am a big Tory Burch fan, so when Megan of Chic for a Week offered to let me try a free rental, I obviously couldn’t refuse. If you’re familiar with Bag, Borrow or Steal or Rent the Runway, Chic for a Week is the same idea but for shoes! They have a small but growing selection of great designer shoes that you can wear for a week at a fraction of the cost of buying retail. My shoes arrived very quickly and came with a return UPS label already printed out (which is awesome, because shipping things is the worst). To learn more about Chic for a Week, see the FAQ page on their website. It’s a great idea if you have a special occasion coming up!

Here’s me posing in front of the tree in the lobby at Indianapolis International Airport on Christmas Eve before our flight.

…And here I am having a little holiday cocktail on our layover. What can I say? I’m festive.
