For times of many scheduled appointments occurring both of business and leisure, for me, comfort has to come into account regarding attire. This is especially the case when all engagements are to be held in relaxed environments.
This is what I wore as my travelling outfit one day. The mission was simple: I needed to be comfortable, yet I had to be mindful that versatility was essential. And, a hassle-free TSA-friendly look was going to be obvious to even start the style-thinking process.
I am amazed at how many people that I see in airports nowadays who travel wearing loads of accessories and refuse to take them off. A random businessman kept beeping through the security line ... after a second run through he looks up at me and everyone behind him, clueless. I said, "it's your skinny belt!" That's right, Mr. Dapper (Mr. D) had on a skinny metal belt, and holding up the line for a good few moments. But, it was okay with me this time because I was well ahead of schedule. For some reason he would not budge to hand in his belt at first.
When it comes to fashion-eyes I am a very observant person. Finally, he takes off the belt, then everyone within the area took notice that his trousers were about to have a massive roll-down as he frantically tries to hold them up.
I am uncertain if Mr. D was entirely spaced out, merely having a laugh himself, or going through caffeine withdrawals, however he did look a bit embarrassed after that situation. I know that I feel best when I've had my morning cuppa to start. But, I digress ...
This particular outfit was my fairly casual ensemble that day. I really loved the ribbon and draping at the sleeves, as well as the overall loose fitting. Of course jersey was perfect for the occasion and I was also able to wear my new specs!
I find that grey lends itself to be somewhat of a saving grace whenever I am not up to donning too much colour (which ... is rare, I know) or simply when I want to wear something other than all black.
I combined various shades of grey to complement both the need to dress up and down. Although, later in the day I opted for my black lurex and tweed jacket (seen below) to pair with the dress, then added black opaques for the "worker-chic" version. But, nevertheless, here is my relaxing grey worn in travelling style.
