A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – Packing in grey, teal & claret
Claudia asked about a travel wardrobe in grey, with accents of teal and merlot. What lovely colors to work with... If this isn't exactly appropriate for the weather anticipated, shorter sleeves, and maybe capris could be substituted for some of the items here. As always, I'm long on accessories, and layering possibilities...Enjoy!

Chic sightings: LaGuardia International Airport
One common characteristic that all of these women shared: a sense of planning. They weren't over-burdened with a bunch of stray bags, they knew where their ID and boarding pass were, their hair was neat and clean, they wore modest but attractive makeup, they just didn't appear to be frazzled and out of control. And some of the outfits that you might assume were worn by younger women were in fact being sported with great elan by women of a certain age. With confidence and flair...

A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – Packing for 1 night in New York with no suitcase
Yes, I'll be in New York for about 24 hours - I'm flying in, having dinner, sleeping (I hope), and then running literally TWO errands the next morning, and flying back. Because I'm going to be racing about with very little "down time", I've determined that I don't want to pack more than I'm prepared to carry with me at all times...To the rescue - the Tumi bag that I've been carrying for almost 10 years as a brief case. It was originally a diaper bag, but it's logged more miles as an all-purpose bag than I can remember. I've determined that I'm NOT going to wear my usual argyle cardigan - switching from black & white stripes to grey with Hermes will give me at least a different feeling on the 2nd day. Clothing, pajamas, ... View the Post
A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – What to pack for Paris in grey & black
This is pretty close to what I pack when I go to Paris (or most other major cities that I visit). I always take a pair of jeans, because we try to go to a rugby match when we're there! My suitcase would probably have even more jewelry in it, and quite a few scarves; I find that I don't mind wearing monochromatic outfits day after day if I have my favorite accessories with me. If I had to augment this assortment for a slightly longer trip, I would add a grey cotton twinset, and another pair of capris - maybe in a black and grey paisley print. If you ever see someone in an airport dressed like this, come up and say hello - it will almost certainly be me!

A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – Packing for Paris in orange and beige
You DO understand that when we invoke the "dream meme" of Packing for Paris, we also mean "a plan for what I will purchase this spring and summer"? I know we're not all going to Paris, but it's a lovely structure around which to plan this season's carefully curated and deliberately distilled wardrobe additions...And I've got to go to work soon, so you'll have to build your own outfits from these choices. Someone once commented to me that it was like paper dolls! Enjoy, and thanks for being here.

A Travel Capsule Wardrobe based upon a cardigan
A lot of people were very intrigued by my absolute addiction to flying in an argyle cardigan - I got lots of emails asking for variations on the patterned cardigan theme for travel. My travel policies:
no jeans, no sweatpants, no pajamas, no yoga pants. I don't find jeans comfortable for sitting for hours. You have to remember, when flying from the US to Europe, that you may be wearing the same outfit for the entire day of your arrival. I don't like to spend my first day in Paris wandering about in pajama pants, no matter how comfortable they were on the plane. It's not like I'm going to sleep that much on the plane anyway... Small earrings, so I can lean on things and rest during the ... View the Post
A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – Packing for spring break – no bikinis, no shorts
The most interesting thing I've discovered in building four spring break wardrobes is how many items can be worn regardless of one's age or preferred level of modesty. Every wardrobe has had a striped tee shirt or two, a Chan Luu bracelet, ballet flats, the same white denim skirt, a tote bag, some simple tee shirts, and a cardigan or two. Timeless, indeed!
Navy silk tunic – Vince, Swim dress - Speedo, cover up/tunic – Milly Ava, silk dress – Yves Saint Laurent, flowered dress - Lanvin, striped tee shirt – Velvet, grey tee shirt, white tee shirt – Acne, glitter espadrilles – Toms, navy sandals – Dezario, linen cropped pants – Seasalt, flowered skirt – Cacharel, grey twill ...

A Travel Capsule Wardrobe – Packing for spring break, leaving straight from the office
It's not uncommon to have to go straight from the office to the train/car/airport, so this selection accommodates that need. An oxford striped shirtdress as a swimsuit cover-up, some more modest shorts, and more dresses than before make this a very adult vacation ensemble!
