Pants: Rag & Bone
Sweater: Helmut Lang
Shoes: Zara
Bag: Proenza Schouler
Sunnies: Stella McCartney

Having a hard time deciding which I love more, New York or Los Angeles (ok LA always wins, but still) it’s been a dream of mine to be able to be bi-coastal and live back and forth between the two cities. Well turns out maybe that’s not as glamorous as I thought. It’s a lot of bag packing, rushing between airports, long anxiety ridden flights where I always manage to get sick and no matter how many times I fly I don’t get “used to it”, and since I don’t have my own place in NYC- lots of hotels and hassles.
So when I have to go to NY for literally just one day for work and turn around and come right back, let me tell you comfort is key! When I found these awesome pants I just couldn’t pass them up. They look like jeans (even when you’re up really close) but they are actually sweat pants. The print on them is so believable it’s crazy. Exactly the type of thing I need! Paired with a bunch of perfect basics and my fav new turtleneck- easy and cozy!

    Love the sweater and your pictures capture New York so well! I used to get sick and nauseous on flights as well, to the point where I wouldn’t eat on a travel day. I started taking a tiny dose of Dramamine before each flight and it made such a difference! I would see if it works for you:) Wishing you well!

    Incredible!

  23. Julia says:

    After I read that those pants were sweats, first I said “no they’re not!” and then proceed to go back and scrutinize every picture. Those are absolutely incredibly! I’ll have to check them out for my next long plane flight!

    OK–you’re making me laugh–you get anxious to fly AND you get air-sick? Glad I’m not the only one. I’m struggling with whether or not to plan a trip to Hawaii..I’ve been there several times before but the older I get, the more flying bothers me. All that ocean, no place to land and all those sharks! Kudos to you for bucking up and getting on a plane, despite your anxiety. Proud of you!
