My Summer Business Travel Uniform

Why is it the hotter it gets the slower your brain works? When the temperatures rise I have to use all of my brainpower on doing my job and taking care of my kiddos, with basically nothing leftover for what to wear. (Or cleaning. Oh well!) This is even more true during busy travel periods. Instead of figuring out what to bring on each trip, at the beginning of the busy season I come up with a couple of standard outfits and pull from there all summer long. Here are my go-to business travel outfits for summer.

Breezy top+stretchy slacks+fun flats

Simple is my motto this summer. I love my navy Pixie slacks from Old Navy, and a Pleione mixed-media tunic creates a professional silhouette with maximum comfort. Add ballet flats in a fun leopard print and you can survive an 18-hour travel and work day in style while feeling great.

Jersey sheath dress+nude-for-me wedges

For days that need a little more formality I wear a dress and heels. Jersey sheath dresses with sleeves like this Ann Taylor purple one are perfect, as they require no coordinating or thought–just put it on and go. Low nude-for-me wedges are almost as comfortable as my beloved flats but take the outfit up a notch.

The extras

Yes, accessories are a fun part of getting dressed, but right now I can’t manage figuring out a different set for every outfit. I have seafoam-colored earrings rimmed in gold that go with basically everything I own, and  with a gold bangle and simple gold chain I look polished without sapping my brainpower. For some trips I will top these outfits with a blazer if I need to be a little more formal. A pashmina keeps me warm on the plane, and a gorgeous travel purse holds all of my gear.
