Happy November!! I’m interrupting Cropped Flares week to talk travel. Specifically, my very favorite Fall/Winter travel uniform. This outfit is super comfortable, can be warm or cool depending on airport conditions (or the weather wherever you land), and is cute enough to be worn well past travel days.
In fact, when my mom was packing for her recent visit to Philly, I basically told her to pack this exact travel uniform: jeans, fashion sneakers, cute tops, a leather jacket. (Add a scarf, hat and mittens if it’s cold.)
Add a gorg travel bag and you’re set for a weekend getaway, or a quick trip home to visit family for Thanksgiving.
leather jacket: IRO Tara – mine’s sold out! But here’s a similar option (or find more below).
top: old ALC but this one gives similar vibes.
jeans: AG ‘The Legging’ Ankle Jean
shoes: Brooks Heritage, old. This pair by the brand is close.
weekender bag: Sole Society Lacie in oxblood c/o (vegan leather, can take a beating – LOVE)
Went right from the airport to Dudley’s on Short (Hi, Lexington!)
bag: Sole Society Cassidy Vegan Weekender in gray/black wool (a little smaller than mine)
top: Willow and Clay Ruffled Chiffon Tank (now 40% off!)
jeans: DL1961 Emma Ankle Leggings
sneaks: New Balance Classics in copper/black (obsessed with the red contrast laces)
bag: Sole Society Lacie Vegan Weekender in oxblood (this is the one I’m carrying)
jacket: Mango leather biker jacket (comes in a bunch of colors)
top: Club Monaco Tank (on sale!)
jeans: AG Ankle Leggings (same ones that I’m wearing)
sneaks: New Balance x J.Crew
jacket: Mango Zip-Detail Leather Jacket
top: Hatch Maternity Elodie top (I’d wear this pregnant or not)
jeans: Joe’s Jeans the Icon Ankle
sneaks: Brooks Heritage in black/gold

Below I’ve rounded up my favorites in every category – weekender bags, leather jackets, cute tops, jeans and sneakers.
For leather jackets, I like ones that are elegant-but-tough: super soft leather, a matte, non-shiny finish, and just enough detail to hint at badassery.
The term ‘cute tops’ is insanely broad. For this list, I tried to stick to tops that would be comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and while they don’t have to be dressy, they have to at least be interesting enough to stand on their own.
