The new fall show Pan Am has me lusting for the glamour that travel used to have. It’s hard to feel glamorous while dealing with weather delays, airplane “food” that costs an arm and a leg, and neighboring passengers sitting too close for comfort. While travel has become more of a hassle than a luxury in our current day, I try and bring a little style in my travel outfits, even when I’m boarding a plane for pleasure instead of business.
Traveling from San Diego (from a conference) to Atlanta (for a wedding), with a layover in Chicago (while always leads to a delay) called for light layers and comfortable basics. Slim black pants and a tunic tee, a drapey cardigan, subtle jewels, and an attempt at Serena van der Woodsen-hair makes me feel more glam and less gross when trudging through airports and boarding flights. These self-portraits (with my iPhone and Instagram) sums up my traveling life – slightly harried, making the most of what I have, and always on the go.
