I'm Leaving On A Jet Plane...

Tomorrow morning (early) I head back east for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Family and old friends.  Always an occasion to love and embrace.  Work keeps me so busy that I do not get this chance often enough so when it comes I just relish in it!

Before I go on, I hope all of you have a MOST WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!

Anyway, I am actually not much of a fan of the airplane in general.  They are loud and uncomfortable.  They can only be accessed through airports that are crowded and inconvenient.  During this, the busiest travel time of the year, it is only worse.  I know that some of you out there are reading this thinking that I am such a whiner... perhaps, but I am just speaking the truth... I don't like to fly... I don't like anything about it, which brings me to my outfit of choice for tomorrow's journey.

Many people opt for tennis shoes and jeans or even sweat pants for these types of journeys but you know that neither really fits with my personality.  I am going to always be "dressed" by many people's standard.

With that said, if I have to do something that I really don't want to do, I suspect that I should do it wearing something that I truly love to wear.  Hence...

Naturally, I broke out my leather skirt for the trip.

I paired it with an oxford style blouse in this soft pink to lighten the look a bit.

I am traveling to visit family after all.  Hee Hee.  Actually, I probably could have worn a suit and fit right in at home. I will get to that in a later post.

 I know that you have seen this skirt before in a previous post but I always like to include a closeup simply because the leather is so soft.  I wish that the picture could truly do this fact justice.

The blouse is simple and relaxed, a perfect compliment for a day of travel.
Don't you think the two flow well together?

Ordinarally I would immediately reach for my tall boots to pair with this outfit but I am planning something a little different.  We'll see if I change my mind come the morning?   I intend to wear these instead...

I have to have some kind of a heel.  That is a given.  But these babies give me the flexibility to slip them off now and again during the flight.  Yes, I said it, I like to let me toes breath just a little while traveling in such cramped quarters.  That's right, I'm the one.  Hee Hee.

It might be a little cool back home for these but I think as long as I don't get surprised by six inches of snow I will be okay.  Hope so?

Back in a couple of days with a short review of what I wore during the holiday break.
