Adrianna and I have a few travel plans lined up for the summer, and most of them involve leaving directly from the office and getting on a train or hopping in the car. Similar to Summer Fridays, this is a tricky wardrobe situation that has to potential to go into inappropriate category, as well as completely uncomfortable.
Here are a few items that I think are must-have’s when traveling from the office to your sunny summer weekend location:
An easy-to-carry overnight bag. We’ve all seen those poor souls on the subway who haul luggage on their commute (I’ve been one of them from time-to-time). Invest in a quality leather weekend bag or duffel. My colleague has this one from Michael Kors and I’m OBSESSED.
A wrinkle free, breezy dress. Don’t try to get too fancy for your travels. Jersey dresses are your friends here. Try any from J.Crew, Old Navy or Anthropologie. If you find a style you love, purchase a few in different colors or prints.
Low-heel espadrilles or easy flat sandals. No heels when traveling, please. Ever.
In-transit entertainment. If you’re traveling with girlfriends, they can be your entertainment! Otherwise, download a new book on your Kindle (or reread Fifty Shades) and pack your iTunes with some new jams to get you in the summer spirit.
