What to wear in the mountains

Casual Clothes · Casual Friday

Although Jason and I had to fly to Arizona last week for a not-so-fun reason, I have to admit that I was a bit loathe to return to Chicago. Why? Well, for one, the views are amazing. The other? It was in the 50s! I was able to wear this outfit without a coat!

chambray-shirt-black-jeans-1I actually wore this outfit on the plane. I always bring a scarf in case it’s cold and these boots are perfect for plane travel because they slip on and off easily. This shirt is really, really soft and the jeans fit me well.

I also felt like I fit right in while in Flagstaff. It’s not a very fancy town so plaid, chambray, jeans and boots are all perfect for the casual, rustic, rural vibe.

Do you have a typical go-to travel outfit?

    Did Jason grow up in Flagstaff? I can’t drive when we’re in my husband’s home town (also in the mountains) because I go all slack-jawed at the view.

    Swap the black jeans for ponte pants and that’s basically my travel outfit.

      Jason’s parents moved to Flagstaff after he graduated high school so, no, he didn’t grow up there. He’s never actually lived there! We just go to visit 🙂

    LOVE this. Love it, love it, love it. Will be recreating it once it’s warm enough to wear just chambray, instead of chambray + a sweater + another shirt for good measure.

    I usually try to wear my bulkiest clothes when I travel so I don’t have to pack them. Usually that means I wear a hoodie and jeans. Keeps me nice and warm and comfy! (And the hood is ideal for Amtrak sleeping, in my experience.)
