Selma Goes To Colombia

I flew from Toronto to Bogota and then on to Medellin, Colombia in late July for a family reunion and I always like to travel comfortably yet put together. Long gone are the days of sweatpants and sweatshirts for flying and I seem to have (sort of) reverted back to my childhood when my mother put us in nice clothing for travelling (something about needing to look respectable while flying). Although you won't catch me in a dress on an airplane anytime soon I do think it's best to look like you put a little effort into your appearance. I stayed comfortable with my American Eagle Jeggings, and black Joe Fresh basic t-shirt and put together (and warm) with this blue blazer from Smart Set which I picked up in July for only $15 (such a steal!) My Yosi Samra flats make the perfect travel companion because they fold up which makes them easy to stuff into suitcases and they feel like slippers which is perfect for long flights. My handbag of choice was my Michael Kors Selma Satchel (which may not be the most practical travel bag) but I thought it looked great with the blazer (and that's what's most important, right?
What do you like to wear when travelling?

  1. This is a great travel outfit - pulled together but still relaxed. I usually get really cold on flights and also worry about circulation so my usual airplane outfit is comfy pants, compression stockings, boots, a long-sleeved top and a scarf of some sort.

  11. Hahahah my mum used to do that to us too when we traveled and I hated it! Always felt so uncomfortable. But these days I do find myself dressing a little sharper!

  14. I'm eyeing the Selma bag at the moment. Already own a Jet Set Travel Tote by MK which I recently purchased for myself and I'm loving it ^_^. Your post about this helps me decide if I want to go for another MK bag or not and I really do now want another one in my life :D. Your bag is gorgeous ^_^.
