I know you're not going to believe me.
Given that Princess Shinylocks - a.k.a, K. Middy - is my style spirit animal, why would you believe that in fact *she* is knocking off my go-to travel outfit, versus the other way around?
OK, OK - the outfits aren't identical, but girlfriend does appear to be playing by my patented travel rules, namely:
Three Guidelines for Dressing on Planes:
1) Breathable layers, including a scarf and jacket;
2) Security line ease: shoes must be comfortable & easy to get off/on, no fussy accessories or anything to set off the metal detectors, etc.; and
3) Dressy casual - jeans are fine so long as the look is pulled together.
|This is looking a little more BRIGHT COLORS!!! online than in real life; nevertheless, think it improves with the more sedate blazer below . . .|
outfit details: shirt (Old Navy, old) / blazer (Zara) / pants (Gap, old, update here) / scarf (Francesca's, old) / shoes (Tory Burch, similar here) / purse (Modalu) / carry-on tote (Longchamp, old) / sunglasses (Michael Kors) / watch (Michele)
I wear some variation on this whether I'm traveling with the wee CEO or not; when I am, I add a change of shirt to that carry-on tote and am more likely to wear dark colors, all the better to hide the inevitable spills.
So how did I do - did I do spirit animal Shinylocks proud, even though she's clearly - CLEARLY - the one pulling a royal rip-off here?
