What I Wore Today, 4 AM Edition!

Today I traveled back to LA for work, and our flight left the east coast at 6:50 am. To make it in time from where I live, that meant that I had to wake up at 3:55 am, try to pull myself together, and prepare myself for a five and a half hour flight (which I am SO grateful was direct, AND I was in an exit row, so I really cannot complain!).

Anyway, I am the absolute opposite of a morning person. I don't know what is more scary, the fact that I had to see 4 am, or that 4 am had to face my grumpy atitude.  I didn't feel "normal" again until we touched down in LA, and I had had 3 cups of coffee, made it through about 6 episodes of TV, and eaten a cookie.

With all the traveling I tend to do for work, I've gotten really good at knowing what works best for me for early flights or long trips. Today's outfit is a really good representation of what I love to wear for these occasions!

Starting with the bag, this is the greatest travel purse ever, and believe me, I have tried lots. This Tory Burch Soft Nylon Tote Bag (Tory Navy Geyser) was a college graduation gift from my fiancĂ© last May, but I was able to still find it for sale on amazon if anyone is interested! It is super light weight, but big in size, with a massive zippered (really secure) exterior pocket, and another nice roomy zippered pocket in the main interior, along with two handy slots for cell phone, lipgloss, etc. It has room for everything I need and everything is secured in with a zipper which makes me feel at ease carrying it in busy places, plopping it down in the TSA scanner, and stowing it away in the plane. Not to mention, the nylon material makes it easy to wipe away anything that may get on it. It really is the best. 


I love to travel in my Nike Flex Runs (New Version) because they are lightweight, so comfy, and easy to slip on and off (although I hear you're not actually supposed to do that with tennis shoes, whoops!). Plus, the pop of hot pink makes me happy!

Layering is key for me when I travel, and I like to start with a great base. Nothing is better than the Lululemon Wunder Under Crop leggings. Nothing. They are my second skin. I am now a proud owner of 6 pairs accumulated over years and years of love for them. I still have the first pair I ever bought and they are as good as new-- that is where your investment goes with these-- amazing quality that lasts forever. They are expensive for a legging, but trust me, they are worth every single penny. Plus they have tons of fun colors and patterns now!

Next,  I like to go with a lightweight long sleeve top, like this one from Splendid. I particularly like the longer silouette when wearing it with leggings. Finally, a cosy, blanket-like sweater is key. I am notorious for getting cold everywhere I go, so a sweater is a must. This Kersh Anchor Print Sweater (found at T.J. Maxx) is a favorite as I find the waterfall style to be nice and flattering, and I love the print/colors. It also has a nice drapey neck which adds to the warmth factor.

If you ever catch me in the airport super early in the morning, I may not quite know what is going on yet, but chances are I will be wearing something really similar to this because I know it works and I always feel good in it. Do you guys have any travel outfits that you love?


Have a great Hump Day!!
