Let's Travel, shall we ...

With the promise of sun filled weather "just around the corner" as the weatherman keeps promising. Though we arrived home to pretty much the weather we experienced for a week in the Netherlands ... RAIN and dampness ... not a good combination for someone who has had multiple bone fractures. Nevertheless, traveling to foreign places was one of my favourite things to do and I plan to do a lot more of it the months and years ahead.

How fabulous it would be if we could all travel via private jet? Where you step out of the car and only need to walk steps - not miles across an airport terminal, from check-in to boarding - and the only luggage you concern yourself with is the gorgeous handbag dangling from your arm. Oh the wonderful stylish outfits we could dress in to arrive perfectly fresh and stylish looking at our destination.

Alas this is not the "norm" for most of us ... not for moi, anyways. But ladies you can still travel in style. Leave your Lulu Lemons at home, and the bulky sweat shirts, and the flip flops (I couldn't believe what women were wearing at the airport on our trip to the Netherlands, last week)! Here are a couple of ways to wear jeans, or khakis and still look stylish.

Wedges can be just as comfortable as a flat shoe, and for petite (vertically challenged such as moi) ladies give us some height and make our legs look longer and slimmer. I do take a pair of slip on slippers for the actual flight (in a future post, I will share what I pack in my carry on).

What is your tip to looking stylish while travelling ?

  1. Great set and perfect post with a wonderful reminder of the days when we used to get dressed up to travel. I still do! I may wear my jeans (I love 'em and wear them in most of my posts-- and even in my last one) but on a flight I have the most perfect blazer that doesn't ever wrinkle. It's a great layering piece in summer by itself and in winter under a jacket. And my fold up flats are also perfect! Love this post :)

  2. That white bag is so gorgeous! Perfect for travel!

  3. Can never go wrong with a white t and jeans.

  4. Great outfit for traveling!
    Have a good weekend!

  5. Vertically challenged? Lol!

    Happy to have you back. Excited to hear all about your trip! xo

  6. Celia, I agree with you on the state of people traveling, it hurts my eyes!
    Accessories are the change-up for me. jewelry, scarves, shoes, even several different T's.

  7. Hi Celia...I have changed my blog address to http://www.antiquesandteacups.info because of the blog scraping pirates we dealt with all of last month. I am hoping this will all get fixed!!!

  8. Thank you for stopping by, Celia. Always so good to hear from you.
    I so enjoyed reading this post. I remember the days when traveling meant dressing up and I still believe in it very much. Yes, you can dress up a nice pair of jeans just as you show here. I cannot believe what some are wearing these days while traveling and I was also horrified while recently attending an Andrea Bocelli concert with my husband. I think it's so special to dress up, even with casuals.
    In answer to your closing question, I'd definitely recommend fresh lipstick, one or two bold accessories like a turquoise necklace or ring, and always, always, always nicely done hair. If you're having a bad hair day, a stylish headband.
    This was fun.

  9. Hi Celia, sweet! Comfort AND style are at the top of my list while travelling ... my travelling clothes are always light and baby soft, clothes that I feel good in, and I like to travel as lightly as I can, so much more pleasurable ... I started doing this some time ago when I realized I usually only wore about half of what I brought! Wishing you beautiful days in beautiful weather, Celia! xoxo ~S

  10. Bonjour mon ami!! Your trip to the Netherlands, although rainy, sounds fantastic! I agree, I like to dress fashionable and comfortable for a flight. I bring ballerinas to wear on the flight, and a pashmina and neck pillow to keep me warm and comfortable.
    The wedge sandals you chose are fabulous.. they, too, are a staple in my wardrobe. I also love the pink cardigan. So much beauty here!
    Wishing you a most beautiful week! xoxo, B
