For my first installment of (travel) Look, I'll be showing what I wore on my road trip to pick up my visa. I had to pick up my visa from the Chilean Consulate in Atlanta in person which resulted in a LONG day in the car. I knew I was going to be in a car for 7 or more hours this day, so I went with my tried and true wardrobe picks for a long day of travel. Here's what I wore:
cardi--Old Navy | shirt--Target | scarf--H&M | jeans--Kohls | flats--Lucky Brand
This is a pretty basic outfit, but it's much more put together than a pair of sweats (in my opinion). I knew I was going to be meeting a representative of Chile, and I certainly didn't want that person to think I was a huge slob even if I had been in a car for hours that day.
Here's my foolproof formula for any car adventure: jeggings (or stretchy pants) + flats + visually interesting piece + scarf/layers
1. Jeggings (aka the best pants ever invented) are a must for travel. They are just as comfy as sweats but look much better.
2. Flats. Although I love boots, flats are just so much easier to ride in a car in. I like to be able to slip my shoes on and off, so flats are the best option for me.
3. Visually interesting piece (cardi) adds interest--duh--to any outfit. Also wearing something fun makes you automatically look less miserable even if you are miserable from being in a car for hours.
4. Scarves/layers are a must for me. I freeze on a daily basis--especially in cars when I'm not always able to control the temperature--so extra layers, like scarves and cardis, that I can take on and off are great for travel.
How do you guys like to travel (by car) in style??
