What I Wore: My Favorite Travel Outfit

The last ten days have been hectic and wonderful, and I'm really excited to get back to with my sisters. I'm also excited that Mary Boctor, personal stylist, will soon be open for business, but more on that later! I'm still getting into the groove of things since my return from Chicago, but I wanted to take a few minutes to share an outfit with you! The pics aren't as crisp as I'd like, but c'est la vie, and they are enough to get the idea.

What I needed: An outfit to wear for my flights to and from Chicago. No one was meeting or dropping me at the airport, so I needed something comfortable and stylish that I could wear on the plane, and on the trains as I traveled with my luggage. Throw in a late arrival time and the characteristically cold weather, and you see my situation. Too much to ask from one outfit, you say? The one below did the job perfectly. It consisted of a soft grey v-neck tee, dark wash boot cut jeans, a black cotton unlined blazer, black leather booties (with camel soles - I love the little details!), and a camel leather tote. I kept the accessories simple, just pearl stud earrings, stainless watch, and my wedding ring (which didn't deter an elderly - yes, elderly - Greek gentleman in the way one would have hoped, but that's a story for another time...).  Once out in the cold, I threw on an up-cycled grey angora snood and black wool coat. What do you think?

















And, since this is what I wore Sunday, I'm going to go ahead and link up with these fine ladies!
