the ideal traveling outfit

It’s been a while since I traveled by airplane. My last trip was back in October when I visited Thessaloniki, but I have to say that 2015 was the year I traveled the most, clocking more than 20 hours of air travel! I mean wow! You see I had to take advantage of living in the US to explore the country and visit as many states as possible! 2015 was also the year I mastered to pack a hand luggage with all my essentials and draft out the ideal traveling outfit which is both stylish and practical. (ok more practical than stylish but you get the drift)

My go-to traveling outfit is t-shirt + cardigan + jeans + sneakers + scarf and of course outerwear. The latter is an easy option as my Zara parka (with detachable faux fur lining) is the best outerwear I ever owned especially when traveling between destinations with different temperatures: e.g. Boston to California.

For this post I “glamorized” a bit my ideal traveling outfit by wearing my (newly) favorite burgundy pants and this long blue cardigan that’s ideal for the air conditioning that airplanes (and ferries) usually have. I topped off my outfit with a necklace from the upcoming spring collection of Swarovski (more about that on a future post). Of course the day I shot this outfit I wasn’t traveling, but I took full advantage of being at the airport to take some pictures and have lunch there!

And talking about lunch! I couldn’t leave you without any photos, could I? We dined at La Pasteria, which is a chain Italian restaurant in Athens. I went for a pizza (my favorite food probably) and my husband had risotto! We finished of the lunch with a lemon pie and chocolate salami! Yum!
