Today we’re launching a new series on the blog called Layer It. We’ll be taking the basics for any ensemble and adding our favorite layering pieces to give it a little personal style. If you have an outfit in mind but don’t know what to layer it with don’t fear – we’ve got you covered. From brunch with your girlfriends, to holiday parties, to traveling, to a trip to the park – we’ll be covering all the bases.
First up, fall travel. It’s that time of year where everyone is planning a trip for work or going home for Thanksgiving (can you believe it’s right around the corner – I can’t!). Since I’m an avid traveler, I’m constantly getting asked what I wear on the plane – do I wear sweats, jeans, how do I keep warm? That’s basically how this new series got created. Personally, I always go with my favorite basics on a plane – then you can’t second guess yourself. Add on a cozy scarf, boots to keep your feet warm (especially if you’re traveling to cooler temps) and then a few accessories to give it a little character. But don’t add too many because you don’t want to be that girl taking everything off in the security line. This outfit is bound to be comfortable but chic – you just can’t go wrong!
