On the Road

Now that Harrison and I are no longer doing the whole long-distance relationship thing, I’m only hopping in a car, bus or plane every couple of months rather than every couple of weeks. But that doesn’t mean my approach to travel style has changed one bit. In fact, it can pretty much be broken down into three simple rules: One, wear something that’s comfortable (nothing too form-fitting or a fabric that isn’t breathable); two, wear something that’s casual, but not totally dressed down (so no yoga pants, T-shirt or sweatpants); and three, wear layers that are easy to take off and add on in case of temperature or weather changes.

I kept these three rules in mind last week when traveling home to NC to see my newborn nephew, pairing one of my favorite oversized knit cardigans with a simple, slightly peplum top and go-to pair of jeans. After belting the sweater to add some waist definition, I also added gold accessories and leather, strappy sandals that were comfortable enough to wear while dragging around my luggage, but dressed up enough to subtly elevate my ensemble.

I also had two of the best accessories out there: My new textured travel bag—which I bought before our trip to Europe and absolutely adore—and my favorite puppy in the world, Paul (who looks admittedly grumpy in these shots, but in reality is the biggest love bug you could ever imagine)!
