My husband and I were discussing the other day exactly why we thought taking a red-eye across the country with three children would be a good idea when we bought our tickets a while back. We couldn't quite recall.
We've done flights this length with them quite a few times... and even the longer flights from Seattle to Copenhagen and back last summer... but we've never done the "get on the plane way past your bedtime and please just fall asleep so you're up bright and early to jump in a car just in time for rush hour traffic" kind of flight. Any kind thoughts sent our way will be greatly appreciated... ;)
I know I said "sleeping" in my blog title but that is optimistic. At any rate, I will be spending the night in this outfit so I wanted it to be comfortable, layered, decent enough looking in the airports, and not high maintenance. All the pieces are recent purchases from Target and great buys. The cardigan is thin but similar to a weave you'd find at J Crew, with a nice drape and nice finishing on the hem and cuffs.
I snapped the pics below right after I bought the pieces just to try on. I'll wear them with some Tory Burch Revas and my LV Totally tote in Damier Azur. Minimal jewelry -- I had a chunky necklace set off the airport security buzzer once. You don't need those kind of delays when you are trying to get three little ones' shoes off/on and through security with their backpacks/American Girl dolls etc etc.
Mossimo Supply Co Kimono Dress in Ebony, $15.00, Mossimo Drape Front Cocoon Cardigan in Purple, $19.99, Mossimo Supply Co Leggings in Grey $6.00
This dress came in a few different colors but I could only find Grey online. There is also a maxi dress that looks like a similar style.
a little brighter lighting to show the cardi...
I don't see the Purple online, but they do have Royal Teal, Black, Grey, and White
the $6 leggings -- love these!
I am super busy getting ready for our upcoming vacation but should have some on-the-road travel (and possibly shopping) posts up over the next couple of weeks. Hope everyone's having a great week!
