Travel Attire

Today is both a very exciting, and very annoying day.  At 7 pm (assuming I can pull my act together) Dylan, the dogs, and I will be en route to New York.  It's a 20 hour drive, (yes, we're driving) and we don't stop for anything, except maybe gas and bathroom/food breaks for ourselves and the pooches.  So in honor of this miserable drive across the Midwest to the east coast...here is a travel-inspired outfit that I will NOT be wearing, because there is no good outfit for 20 straight hours in a car that doesn't include baggy sweatpants and a huge t-shirt, maybe some slippers if I'm feeling polite.  However, if I were traveling a path more comfortable and timely, then this would be the perfect outfit!  Think: Airport, shorter road trip, train, bus etc...

In college I was always making the 4 hour drive back and forth from New York to Massachusetts.  Often when I reached my destination I needed to be ready to head out again for dinner or parties or meeting up with friends.  An outfit like this is perfect for that transition.  Comfortable, but presentable.

A word on the watch:  I know that the trend right now is huge watches that make your wrists look super tiny (awesome).  But I have a feeling that smaller more feminine watches are going to make a comeback.  Sometimes driving can be uncomfortable with a 20 lb watch on your wrist, so this is a more practical alternative.  I made this outfit on polyvore, so it doesn't mean that it's within budget, although I kept every piece under $200, besides the cardigan. But you can without a doubt find all of these pieces at a great price!
