Travel Clothes

I'll tell you...after our escapades over the past six weeks in China, Japan, Mexico, Vegas and regular weekly work travel, I'm so glad I have the below clothes.  They make my life SO easy on the road.

First off, anything Lilly.  Anything.  It hardly wrinkles and if it does a bit, you can take it out of your suitcase, shake it out and it's perfect.  In a place that we didn't have irons (the cruise ship), this was all so necessary.  I literally could keep my dresses folded and pull them out after I got out of the shower, slip them on and I was ready.

Lilly Travel Pants.  Best invention known to man.  I don't know about you all but jeans are not comfortable.  I wear my travel pants constantly for work when I'm on the road.  I tuck them into my cowboy boots when I do muddy site visits or I slip on my Caroline TB flats and dress them up for a meeting.  I took them to Asia and thankfully had three pair to rotate.  Top notch.


This dress I got from PiperLime has been amazing.  I don't usually stray from Lilly or J.Crew but this dress can be scrunched up in a ball and you take it out of your suitcase and there isn't one crease.  I wore it here and here.  It's on sale for less than $50.  I got the black one because you can never have too many black dresses.  

I also took A LOT of J. Crew vintage tees and 4" chino shorts.  They are my go-to as well.  Here I am in a vintage cotton shirt and my Lilly Travel Pants.


Tell me your favorite comfortable clothes that still make you look presentable!

In the Summer I like sundresses. In the winter/fall I can do jeans. I have a pair of Paige that are super comfy.

I usually wear workout clothes on the plane and then sundresses once I arrive. I've worn shorts maybe 10 times in my adult life! When I traveled around Europe after college I worse a jersey dress almost everyday! I am with you on the jeans, but I just got a pair of BF jeans from the GAP and I wore them on the plane to Mexico and they were sooo comfortable! I may have to try those Lilly pants.

Love that dress! Anything that doesn't wrinkle is a winner for me. I have the Lilly travel pants too and just love them. The piping makes them look nice while still being so comfy. Hope your travel schedule is slowing down just a little!

I will definitely look into getting a pair of those pants for work travel. Cardigans and my super-soft Lucky-Brand Tunic were life-savers in Europe. I get cold easily, so layering is key.

I am super intrigued by these travel pants....do you have any full length pics? I'm curious if they are more legging or more similar to my J.Crew minnies....

I usually wear dresses, so I don't have many work pants. I'm definitely going to look into those Lilly travel pants--the elastic waist sounds heavenly haha! Thanks for the tip!

Love that dress - sooooo cute!

That's a great price on that dress. I'm always so timid about ordering online though-never sure about sizing.

I have a few of those J Crew vintage shirts in v neck and I love them, but all of mine seem to have a little hole right where the collar meets the shirt-I don't need it to feel that vintage!

I am thinking I may need to invest in a pair of travel pants...I'm guessing they're similar to the J. Crew Pixie pant?

I'm huge on easy, cotton dresses for travel!
