casual chic outfit for travel

casual chic travel outfit

In my last blog I shared some photos from my recent travel to the Basque Country.  So today I want to talk a little about what I wear when I travel.  This is a simple outfit that is very comfortable yet extremely chic.  I want something that is super comfortable especially on long overnight flights to Europe because I have to sleep in it.  For shoes I always choose flats because you never know when you have to run through an airport.  I like a large handbag when I travel and this one is great because it closes which is important when it goes through security.  And because the outfit is minimal a great statement necklace makes the look perfect.  Plus when you arrive to your destination you make a great impression.

What is style in fashion?

Style is expressing yourself through what you wear.

I love the girl’s “style” in the above picture.

I would like to wear that – then I think … ummmm I’m 69; but I think I could still carry it off.

Style should be ageless.  

One doesn’t stop expressing herself just because of age.

Style is a state of mind

Street Fashion Style

#streetstyle – is a fashion style.   Street fashion is generally associated with youth culture, and is most often seen in major urban centers.  Mainstream fashion often appropriates street fashion trends as influences.  There seem to be an unlimited number of bloggers showing us pictures of what is being worn on the streets today.  That top picture was from a blog about street style.  The blog that started it all was The Sartorialist –  Scott Schuman’s wildly popular site which launched in 2005.  Schuman—who was lauded as one of the Time magazine’s Top 100 Design Influencers—often snaps well-dressed denizens throughout New York and Europe, and posts thoughtful, interesting photos. You won’t bait Schuman by by wearing wild outfits or head to-toe labels—his subjects tend to be rather restrained and organically stylish.

My Art Jewelry Style

I think my jewelry style matches my fashion style.  I tend to like eclectic pieces with lots of asymmetry.  I am using copper and silver more in my designs but still like to use my handmade beads along with semi precious stones.  I like bold pieces that are still understated if that is possible.  

This year I plan on concentrating on small series of pieces as I explore more metal techniques.  So I hope you stay tuned.

Tell me …..  what is your style?
