I don't know about you guys but figuring out what to wear on a travel day is always so tricky for me. I know I have posted about this before but here goes. If you are going to a hot climate, you don't want to be too warm so you are dying of heat when you get there. Yet the airports and planes are always freezing! If you are going to a cold climate, you want to make sure you are prepared when you get there but there is nothing worse than sweating your way through the airport because you are wearing too many layers. So here is an example of the perfect travel day outfit in my opinion. In this case, I am headed to a hot, tropical climate.
This Tribal Cardigan sweater from Forever 21 is my perfect solution (and for $27 you really can't beat it!) It is long and almost "blanket like" where I can wrap up and be cozy. It's not too heavy but warm enough. It happens to look amazing and is really comfortable. I paired it with my j brand jeans which are so comfortable. They fit really well and are flattering but never feel too tight for those long flights. They have a great stretch to them. As for footwear, You guys know how much I love Rag & Bone booties. They are truly the only heeled boot I can walk around in all day and be comfortable. They also aren't too hot for when I reach my destination. (Of course I throw on my sandals when I get there) I complete my look with an adorable 90's scrunchie that makes me feel very much like a kid but also happens to protect your locks and is comfy to wear around your wrist when your hair is down.
I also make sure to always have an extra pair of socks and scarf or sweatshirt in my carry on in case the plane is extra cold that day!

In my opinion, there is nothing more comfortable than an oversized sweater. As the weather starts cooling down in the coming months, I will definitely be stocking up on cozy sweaters. Right now, with this LA heat, it's impossible to really think about but we all know how quickly winter sneaks up on us so it's better to be prepared!
This one by Rag & Bone is perfect because the deep V adds a little bit of sexiness to a potentially frumpy look. I paired it with hunter green J brand jeans (big color for fall), a Louis Vuitton clutch and a pair of knee high Christian Louboutin boots.
