Remember on my Jetsetting post how I bemoaned not being able to find the perfect travel pant? Well, my hunt has ended! Today running from meeting to meeting in NYC I found myself with 20 minutes to spare in a sudden downpour, so I popped into Kenneth Cole–which is honestly not somewhere I shop often–to wait it out. The associate told me that everything in the store was 40% off today only, and so why not try something on?
Here they are: the answer to my problems. Super compfy, soft flannel pants, that look semi-professional. And at $47 they were pretty reasonable.
Of course, right as I was about to pay for the pants the dapper sales associate who got me to try something on in the first place convinced me to get the matching blazer:
After take-off I changed out of my work dress, and so here I am, wi-fing at 35,000 feet, en route to S.F. sitting in this relaxing little number. The flannel is so soft. I’m warm and happy, but I don’t look like a slob. So happy about this find!
And on the topic of travel, my apologies for the absence of post so early in my blogging adventure… I’ve been on a craaazy trip back to the States for my work at Minted promoting our holiday cards, which I’ve been blogging about here. First I was in San Fran where we’re based, then down to Atlanta to visit friends we met volunteering in Haiti / meet our Atlanta-based designers, then to the Big Apple for dozens of media meetings, back to San Francisco for some follow-up and my friend Cory’s 30th, and finally to Seattle for an event for my grandmother. Just in case you were wondering that is 9 flights in 13 days and 25, 205 miles–yes I really did just add it up. Now that I’m on the tail-end of the trip and my biological clock is completely destroyed, I’ll be back to posting daily-ish now!
