when it comes time to don my travel duds, i typically sneak in a scarf. one reason is that they always perk up even the humblest of outfits. two, they chase away the chill. and airports are always below zero.
today, i’m headed to colder climes. minneapolis to be exact. so i pulled on a cashmere turtleneck sweater. and tossed on a long cardigan for extra warmth. did you notice the fringed hem? this continues to be a big trend for 2016. one of my style tricks is to pair a trend with a classic. which keeps the overall look from going over the top. faux leather leggings are still going strong this season (they just might reach classic status) and they add a little chicness to this head-to-toe black ensemble. a leather tote is the perfect travel accessory. i can tuck magazines, phone chargers, even a laptop inside with ease. now, all that’s left to do is bring in a pop of color with my shoes and scarf.
whew! another ootd in the books. if you’re on snapchat, follow along with me as i head to my old stomping grounds – minneapolis. brrrr the highs on wednesday will be 48.
