I was in Detroit airport this past week, flying with my two boys.  And the stroller.  And Ergo.  And huge diaper bag.  And R's backpack.  And was racing to make our connecting flight while R screamed for another ride on the train and P was trying to climb out of the Ergo.  So…you know.  No pic.  But oh my goodness, I so hope I look this cool someday.

And in the spirit of full disclosure, I don't really know if she is actually someone's grandmother.  But she was probably in her 70's, with a deeply lined face and a lively step.  She smiled at the boys, despite R's insistence on "NOTHER train ride, Mum!!" so I'm just assuming that she had children at one point.  And she was wearing her sunglasses indoors…and looking rather glamorous, despite her comfortable (yet chic) clothing.  Voila….





A grandma in a fedora!!  How rockstar is that?  And I love that she matched was was essentially a cheap shopping bag to her shoes – it pulled the whole look together.  Her t-shirt was tucked in, showing a flash of a skinny, braided leather belt, and she had thrown a navy scarf around her neck.  Her blazer was just the comfortable cotton kind – nothing too structured.  I'm totally inspired to rock this look come fall.

I wish I had time to introduce myself and chat.  She seemed just so cool.

  1. Wow, that is a super cute outfit. And this woman was 70-ish? Dang, she looks better than me!
    And by the way, kudos to you for flying with your boys by yourself! I am seriously impressed. We just flew to Denver and back with our boys (1 and 3) and I really don’t think I could have done it by myself. Especially because we checked 7 bags… yeah….
