Happy Monday! A week from today I’m hitting the road again to visit some family and friends. And that got me to thinking about my favorite travel outfit. I don’t think I’ve shared that with you. Shame on me! So today I’m sharing that easy, comfy look…two ways!
When I travel – whether by plane or car or train – I like to be comfortable but also look pulled together. So these side stripe joggers fit the bill perfectly. They are every bit as comfortable as they look, but I think they’re also chic and stylish. These side stripe joggers are the comfy base of my favorite travel outfit.
These joggers feature an elasticized pull-on waist band with a flat front, so you can still give you top a little tuck if you prefer. They fit nicely but not uncomfortably snug, true to size. I’m wearing a medium. The lightweight Pilayo® fabric is soft and stretchy, but also thick enough to conceal any bumps or bulges. I feel “covered up” and polished in these, not slouchy and exposed…the way some joggers can leave you feeling. Know what I mean???
I wore these pants traveling to and from Florida by plane recently just the way I’ve styled them here, except I wore my Adidas running shoes (also available here) and these black socks. While I sometimes wear slip-on shoes, I have TSA Pre-check and don’t have to remove my shoes when I go through security, so lace-ups aren’t a problem.
Oh, and now that I think about it, I also wore this v-neck, cotton pullover…because it was cold when I started my day in Cincinnati. But then I simply pulled off the sweater when I arrived in Jacksonville and slipped it into the side pocket of my suitcase. I wore the black sweater that day, but I also have the pink one.
If you’ve been around Dressed for My Day long, you know how much I love these long sleeve ribbed tees. I have a black one, too, and they run true to size. I’m wearing a medium.
I almost always travel with my denim jacket because it’s so versatile. Once I’ve arrived at my destination, whether it’s cool or warm, this jacket works beautifully with dresses, chinos, shorts, everything! So yeah, my denim jacket is often part of my travel outfit.
But I’ve also been known to opt for my black blazer with these joggers, especially if I’m going to need it at my destination for a dressier, business look. This stretch twill blazer, also available in red and navy, is definitely comfortable enough for travel.
For this look slightly more down-to-business look, I wore my black leather wedge heel sneakers. These are some of the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever owned…and that’s with a 2.5″ heel! I think the black leather is extremely versatile, especially for fall and winter, but these wedge sneakers are available in over a dozen colors and patterns. These lighter color sneakers are perfect for spring…and they’re marked down.
Back to those pants, just a minute. Notice that the side stripe is very slimming on most any silhouette. And the pockets on these pants are perfect for travel. There’s even a small, inconspicuous zipper pocket on the front.
By the way, when I travel I often opt for one set of jewelry that will go with everything I’ve packed. When I traveled to Florida recently I wore these silver earrings (a gift from my son’s trip to Greece), this link collar necklace and my compass coin pendant necklace. These simple layered necklaces worked beautifully with everything.
And that’s how I roll! If the weather stays like it is right now, I’ll undoubtedly be rolling down the highway in these side stripe joggers, my ribbed tee, possibly my cotton v-neck sweater and my wedge sneakers next week. In fact, I’ll probably wear this favorite travel outfit sometime between then and now, too! Let me know if you have any questions about anything I’ve shared today.
Travelling or not, have a lovely day!

Blessed for My Day
Because we live in a fallen world, we all suffer at times. But God redeems what is lost in our suffering by giving us the opportunity to shine for Him. What we lose in suffering is temporal and fleeting. But what we gain is of eternal value.
We have the opportunity to display the character of God as we walk through our difficult times. When we let His light shine through our darkness, we advertise His goodness, greatness and sufficiency. How are you sharing God’s character through your responses to hard things today?
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:7
