September is quickly coming to an end. Boy, oh boy, has it been a whirlwind. The month kicked off with blepharoplasty surgery (eyelid surgery for the common man). I will have a full recap in a week or two, as we are also putting together a YouTube video to share my progress week by week.
Afterward, I zipped off to a plans and actions summit to take a deep dive into content for next year (Get Excited!).
Then it was off to Tybee Island for my last beach vacation (utter bliss), which brings me to today: I’m headed to Dallas, TX, to the LTK Conference. It’s been a minute since they’ve held an in-person conference. I was all set to attend in April 2020, but then we all know what happened… I’m bringing along the a-dor-able Tory Burch suit I purchased for said 2020 conference and a few new purchases. For behind-the-scenes action, follow along on my Instagram Stories.
At the end of October, Kelly and I are flying to Paris, France, for a week chock full of fun. Museums, Versaille, shopping, and we’re even taking a cooking class! Stay tuned. But with all of the recent travel, I thought I would start a travel series that kicks off with 5 Fall Travel Outfit Ideas.
Today I'm sharing how to build a travel outfit

My top 10 graphic tees for Spring 2022 are at the end of the post, so don't miss them!
First I’d like to share what I would never wear in an airport. While I love to wear joggers when I travel, I never wear my gym attire. Those are the outfits I wear specifically to Pilates, riding my Peloton bike or Orange Theory.
I have religiously followed one style rule since a teen: wearing clothes appropriate for the occasion. Golf clothes for the golf course, wedding attire for a wedding, gym clothes for the gym.
I also would never wear tight clothing or anything uncomfortable to sit in when I travel. For that matter, my high heels don’t make an appearance, nor do flip-flops. Skirts or shorts or any clothes that would make me feel cold. We all know how frigid the airport temps can be.
What to do
So here’s what I do wear to an airport. Typically I wear separates so I can layer my outfit according to the temperature: a top and bottom, then add a third layer. And I even have a cute and comfy dress from Athleta that’s a dream to wear when I travel. Underneath the dress, I wear boy shorts from Wacoal.
Now let's get to 5 travel outfit ideas to see these suggestions in action.
Yesterday, Kelly shared 6 soup recipes perfect for Fall. Click the title or image below to read the article.

Question. When it’s fall and you’re going to a tropical location. Do you dress fall or summer? I lean toward fall and arrive at the beach feeling hot til the room is ready!
I dress in lighter layers that I can shed when I arrive at my destination. It’s always a challenge, but layers are the secret sauce and I forgo wool and cashmere in favor of cotton.
Just returned from a Paris trip. On hold from spring 2020 due to Covid. Had a fantastic time!! Bring retro sneakers. They are everywhere in Paris fashion. I was surprised. Looked chic and so easy to sightsee. Love travel ideas.
You look super duper girl. Love the eyes and hair!
Love the outfits, Beth. I wholeheartedly agree with layering for travel, especially taking a scarf. Love your hair, too. Enjoy your time in Paris 👏
Your eyes look fantastic! I will need this procedure also so I am so interested in seeing your you tube about it! If mine would turn out as good as yours I would be ecstatic!! Great ideas for travel outfits too! Have a great trip busy lady!!!!!
I am thinking about the eyelid surgery so I am anxious to see your progress. Thanks for sharing.
You look great in all the options!
I looked up LTK Conference and it sounds like you’re going to have a fun week! Let us in on what you can share and enjoy ~
Outfits #1 and #2 my faves
You inspired me to get new travel shoes/ sneakers. I loved the “Soffitt” Parkyn Sneakers, and the “ColeHaan” Top spin so I ordered it in 2 colors, and I saw a “BZees” kitty travel clogs too. I love Nordstrom because they make it so easy to order, exchange for size or return.
Hi Beth and Kelly,
I ‘ve been following your style and cooking website for a year or more now and I am always happy with your quality and renewed inspirations ! Thank you very much !
You noticed that you will travel to Paris. I’m French and I want to warn you about the widespread insecurity for tourists there, specially concerning robbers. Be sure not to wear your preferred and more valuable gold pieces of jewelry, watch, bags in the streets and in the tube or bus…Tourists are easy targets for bad groups of very organized robbers and Paris had recently won the 350th place about 453 among the most secure big cities in the world. It would be so sad if your stay there remained associated with such an event for you. So please be on guard and take care. I wish you the best visit.
Kind regards, Marie José
