Friday Inspo

Happy halloween everyone!!! Got any super fun plans for tonight? I actually haven't even given it a thought yet but I do know that I want to somehow get in costume. We shall see how the evening unfolds... I feel as though it's been forever since halloween has actually fallen on a Friday night so it would be such a missed opportunity to not seize the moment, amiright? Anyway, below is this week's mood board and hopefully it leaves you inspired xx

The Way Back

fashion over reason travel style what i wore, road trip, McDonald's run

You've now seen my garb on the way up to Canada, now I give you the way back to NYC's attire. Just riffing on my car outfit on the way up, I literally have the same base on, but I swapped the footwear and the outerwear not to be too repetitive.

It's full comfort without the exercise or PJ vibes. The best part about wearing these boots during a long road trip is that they're so easy to slip on and off when getting in and out of the car. Pure ease. Now let's not mention anything about the fact that I'm at a McDonald's and I have something other than a coffee in my hands. What happens on the road stays on the road.

Travel One-Way

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was away for a few days last week and over the weekend. We drove down to Canada for a wedding, and I gotta say, I love road trips, especially during this time of year when the foliage is hitting its sweet spot. When you're slated to be sitting in a car for nearly 10 hours, rummaging through your closet for something comfortable enough to wear for such a lengthy period of time without looking like you've just rolled out of bed can be a bit of a challenge. Because, yes, along with the prolonged driving came a nice rise around 5:30. Did I mention that I am NOT a morning person?

Nevertheless, it's important to remain somewhat sartorially composed. The trick is obviously to have your trip clothes ready for action the night before. If you're gonna do a legging, skip the spandex yoga pant and go for a stretchy material that is less gym-centric, like a thick cotton variation with a cool zip along the leg, as I've done here.

On the top is my favorite sweater, an oversized cashmere polo knit stolen borrowed from my husband for that perfect casual comfort, which still gave me a bit of a luxurious while I belted out my best Lady Gaga in the co-pilot seat (my poor tender half, what a patient man). Finally, let's all count our lucky stars for sneakers having a chic moment, and all you need to seal the deal is some form of striking outerwear.

Weekend Moments

Ann Taylor short trench coat, NYC Ballet tee, Tibi pinstripe cropped trousers, Adidas Gazelles

I personally don't know very many people who fuss over their weekend attire, unless it's Saturday night and they're going out dancing, of course. But not bothering with your attire is not synonymous with sloppiness, ladies. Don't even think about throwing on your Uggs and Lululemons and calling it a Saturday. Loose-fitting cropped trousers paired with fly kicks will bring the same amount of comfort and reap way more style impact.

Aside from the regular sartorial chatter, let's just discuss glorious fall weekends lazily spent in the city for a sec, shall we? Some of my favorite weekends are spent at home, without any particular obligations to fulfill, with no concrete plans, and letting the hubs and I's moods dictate what to do by day, by night and for every feeding. It's such a blissful feeling to be able to go with the flow and just take advantage of life a little bit.

Friday Inspo

While the weather plummets gradually, the fun to be had resides in bundles of cozy layers, fluffy knitwear and luxurious cashmeres. I actually happen to be in Canada this weekend for a wedding and let me tell you, this place is fackin cold... but I'm having an amazing time catching up with some of my best friends. It's kind of a whirlwind and it's going by at lightning speed, but I know the memories will last forever (and if not, all the instagram pics will). Enjoy the break guys and find all the inspiration you need below xx
