leaving on a jet plane

Well as you are reading this, I am jetting off for the weekend. If you know me, then you know how excited I am to get out of Tucson. I am going stir crazy here! In California there were so many little weekend trips that my friends and I used to take. Drive to the city for the night, grab a beach day down in Santa Cruz at the boardwalk, head to Tahoe for some snowboarding in the winter or boating in the summer, or even hit the wine country in Napa or Sonoma for some tasting. The possibilities of the Bay Area were endless. In Tucson, they are less than endless. More like non-existent. Tucson is like a desert oasis (not the good kind of oasis) that is just literally in the middle of nowhere. So again, I can't wait for a quick trip.

took these outfit pics last night during the packing process. this is my traveling outfit for the flight. I layered two ridiculously comfortable jersey dresses to get an interesting mix of color, and to coordinate with my scarf. As a big traveler, I have a set of rules that I go by for travel, and wearing dark colors is one of them. You don't want to get caught with some spill or stain while you are traveling. I'm also a big fan of looking stylish when you travel. I can't understand people that rock their pajamas and slippers in the airport. It is still a public place, and it still looks kind of awkward. Agree? I mean would you wear your PJ's to a concert? to a book store? I don't know I guess I just love every opportunity to showcase my personal fashion, and I feel like rockin my jammies is a waste of an opportunity. With this outfit I have managed to be comfortable, simple, practical, and stylish. You know that I do like to arrive in style. :)

to finish it off, here is a close up of my lovely scarf. I picked this beauty up in Venice a few months ago. They have the most beautiful scarfs there! anyways, can't wait to hear all about every one's weekend stories when I get back. Anyone doing any fun Halloween activities? Getting your costumes in order? I would LOVE to hear your ideas!



  1. Perfect traveling outfit! I can't wait to hear all about your fabulous trip. :)

  3. Hey sweetie!WOW, love this outfit for the plane. You should see how I dress for flying (sweat pants)! You look amazing. I am sorry you hate AZ! CA misses you. Have fun this weekend!

    have lot's of fun on your trip!!!! xx

  6. Love the layers - have a great break! :)

  7. This outfit looks really comforatble! I love it :) Although, I have to say that I used to travel fairly often between Europe and the US, and for that trip this probably wouldn't work (for me) since I am always so cold on the plane during such long flights.
    On another note, I completely agree: pjs are for sleeping and not for travelling. I honestly can't understand those people....I get the desire for comfort but one still should not look like she just got out of bed...:)
    And you still rock, btw. In case you were wondering. :) You look fantastic!
    Have a blast this weekend! I used to live in Vegas...sigh...=)

  8. I agree! - it feels good to look stylish no matter what you're doing. My husband always chuckles at me because I want to look good even when I'm headed to Walmart.

    BTW - I love following ur blog and enjoy your fun, funky style.
