Remember when I talked about my pursuit of a uniform? And how silk blouses would be a major part of it?
I took that to heart. By quickly amassing a collection of breezy blouses that I live in (that is, when I’m not in sweatpants while working from home). They are my mainstay for meetings, short or long flights, and even on date night when I can’t think of anything else to wear. Silk blouses – you’ve made dressing a hell of a lot easier.
A new entrant in my uniform (for this season, at least) - these Sole Society booties. BUY THEM. Besides being absurdly comfortable (I walked between three terminals in Chicago O’Hare in these babies, suitcase and tote in tow), they go with absolutely everything – a dress & tights, flared jeans & a flannel blouse topped with a fur vest, or with my staple skinny jeans and a blouse.
Work or travel, this is one uniform I’ll be wearing for quite some time…

Walking outside into the crisp autumn weather this morning made me SO happy. This season is, without a doubt, my favorite. Sweaters, pumpkin & cider flavored treats, football season, chili, boots, hats, fall foliage…these things bring a giant shit-eating grin to my face. Fall is the best – and it’s also my favorite season to dress for.
Given that my travel schedule shows no signs of slowing down (I’m off to Iowa in two weeks, and then to Europe a few weeks after that), I’ve been making some thoughtful additions to my travel wardrobe. I opt for the same stretchy black bottoms (upgraded with leather details), but swap my ballet flats for sturdy ankle boots or loafers, trade in long t-shirts for lightweight layers, and add some new accessories to the fold – like an amazing leather backpack and a cozy felt hat. A sweatshirt dress, paired with thick black tights, is the perfect thing to wear on long-haul flights. BaubleBar’s new jewelry clutch is perfect for both toting your baubles when traveling, and doubling as a chic clutch for evenings out.
