Since I officially fly out to Mexico in two days, I thought now would be an appropriate time to post about what I like to wear when I’m traveling.  And that would be leggings.  Whether it’s a roadtrip or a plane ride, if it works with the weather, I will be wearing leggings.  Some of the other things I like to wear on a plane are a chunky cardigan with a lightweight top underneath so I’m ready for whatever temperature the plane or airport are.  This is particularly convenient when traveling to a much warmer climate, because the cardigan can be quickly stashed in my carry on when the plane lands.  I also love scarves for a similar reason — scarves can be used as a blanket or a pillow or as back support if the seat is super uncomfortable.  And, when it’s not serving one of those purposes, it can hang from my body and takes up no extra space!

Depending on how chilly it is where I’m leaving from I’ll either go straight to the sandals I know I’ll be wearing the whole vacation, or I’ll wear cozy flats.  If I wear sandals I tend to throw a pair of socks in my carry on for on the plane to keep my feet warm.  My main requirement for footwear when I’m traveling is comfortable — sometimes running is required to make a connecting flight!

Another thing I like to do when traveling to a warm climate is roll up a pair of shorts in my carry on to switch into either on the plane or once we land.  They don’t take up much room and that way I feel like I’m ready to start my vacation right when I land!

Everything in this post is from Piperlime AND under $100 excluding the jean shorts(great alternative here!).  I love Piperlime for their selection — so many great pieces at all different price points!  I do recommend reading the reviews when purchasing online — there’s a lot of helpful information there!

Where: to the studio

Why: My responsibilities at the studio vary and with that my appropriate attire varies.  Leggings and jeans are my go to for days full of photoshop, and while they also work for client meetings, sometimes I like to get use out of the dressier side of my closet.  This skirt, shirt, tights and booties is something that could easily be worn in a typical office setting with a cute belt and long necklace to add flavor.  But since we’re more causal at the studio, I added a motorcycle vest and pretty scarf to both keep me warm on this windy, windy day(see my skirt flying?!) and to dress it down.

What’s your favorite way to dress down your professional pieces?
