Denver or Bust

This is me a few weeks ago as I bravely set out for Denver. I have a cold in this photo but I feel not too shabby. I am so blissfully unaware that I am basically about to totally and completely fall apart health wise over the course of my three days in Denver at the North American Conference on British Studies. Readers, you’ll remember what I’m talking about. But, at the time, I was full of confidence and excitement to be off to Denver in my standard air travel uniform of stretchy pants, boots, a comfy sweater, and a scarf. Do you have a standard travel outfit that you gravitate to?





jeans: Lucky Brand / sweater: Gap / boots: Kohls / scarf: F21 / watch: La Mer / ring: Posh Locket

Black, blue, AND brown?! You rule breaker, you. Seriously, though, I really like how all the colors work together here.

I am sorry you got sick when out of town-I hate it when that happens! You look gorgeous in these photos, and I love the boots!

Awww getting sick is never fun, especially when you can't even curl up in your own bed. These boots are gorgeous, and I love that shade of blue thats your sweater.
I always have a long cardigan and nice big scarf to keep me cozy while flying

I like the scarf. I usually just try to wear something comfortable when I fly, and don't have a usual outfit.

Love your boots, I'm still searching for a perfect pair!

If I looked like that when I had a cold, I would be oh so happy. Love those boots!

ps. my traveling outfit requires breaking my foremost rule-- wearing tights as pants (but I wear a long tunic or pullover)!

If you're just a tiny bit sick, flying seems to make it about a million times worse!

That's the perfect travelling outfit. I often add a scarf because I'm always cold on planes and I can use it as a blanket or pillow!

Closet Fashionista said...

Loving the outfit! My travel outfit is probably jeans and a sweater, haha. But I've only traveled by plane twice :p

I love that you mixed blue, black and brown. The result is casual chic! I love it! When I travel I like to wear leggings and an tunic or sweater dress - that way I am warm and comfortable!

This is a great travelling outfit- I always seem to wear heels when I travel- always regretting it but never changing the pattern!

that's a bummer you were so under the weather, this outfit is so chic and wintery. I really like your brown boots and the midnight blue sweater. It's so chic
