April 8, Spring Break

While many of you are heading somewhere warm and exotic for Spring Break, my daughter and I are going to the midwest to look at colleges for the week. Today’s outfit is my airplane look.


I chose all black because I’m packing light and will need these jeans a few more times on my trip. Plus, black will hide any dirt and honestly, what’s more chic than all black? It’s such an easy base to make simple changes to for an all new look.

Today I added a scarf because I am always cold on airplanes, and a scarf is a great accessory to add style and warmth! I love this scarf because of it’s gorgeous colors, it’s generous size (nothing worse than a wimpy scarf) and I love the cute fringe along the edges. My hubby bought this for me years ago at Lucky. He’s a good shopper, I probably would never have picked this out on my own- but I have worn it so many times over the years.

These cute slip on tennis shoes are perfect for the airport where you have to take off your shoes for security. And don’t worry about my feet getting cold, I am wearing my Smart Wool socks.

Nov 20th, Leaving on A Jet Plane

My vacation starts today- and so I thought I’d show my airplane outfit. I’m flying to Hawaii, so I will be on the place for 6 hours, andย I’ll also be going through a major climate change- it’s about 40 degrees here in the Northwest, and I’m hoping (praying) its’s MUCH warmer in Maui, so I need an outfit that when I land I can quickly change to be more appropriate for the warm weather.

Most importantly, I want to be comfy. ย On that note- I went with my skinny jeans, a striped tank, cardigan, scarf and ballet flats. Upon landing, I can easily take off the cardigan and scarf and be ready for warm weather.

For today’s Before and After photos I’m showing how different cardigans can really change the look.

Take this sweater on the right, I really love this sweater, it’s like wearing a bathrobe or blanket. The problem is, I look like I’m wearing a bathrobe or blanket. Not flattering!

On the left is a much more flattering version. The slimmer cut, lighter fabric and the draping- it all makes for a better look.

The scarf will come in handy if it's cold on the plane.

As soon as we land, I'm ditching the sweater and 'hello sunshine!'

Stay tuned this week, I have some fun reader pictures/ outfits to share and maybe a few vacation posts…
