Tassels, lace and pintucks! Oh my! I’ve found the perfect, pretty travel top for fall and not only is it comfy but it also has fabulous eye-catching details. Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me this lovely tunic, and I happily took it for a spin this weekend to see how well it would hold up whilst traveling on the train to and from the Rhine River.
When I travel, I always keep two things in mind:
Under #1, I would also add stipulation 1(a) which states that my top must be long enough to avoid any flashing of my knickers at fellow passengers while I’m getting into and out of my seat (and also when I’m just sitting there minding my own business). As previously discussed, I have what’s known as “tall bum” so there is a lot of real estate to cover back there. Nothing annoys me more than having to continually tug on the back of my shirt to make sure it’s covering the waistline of my pants. You know the feeling, right? Long story short, I don’t want to have to fuss with my top AT ALL when I’m traveling. I’m happy to report that this top is the perfect length falling just at the bottom of my bum in the back and hitting my upper thighs in the front. The viscose fabric is very soft and drapey which also adds to the comfort.
Now let’s talk about style. I endeavor not to look like a frumpalumpagous when I travel but it’s often hard to find garments that perfectly marry comfort AND style. A lot of comfortable clothing is just plain blah and a lot of stylish clothing is insufferably uncomfortable. This top is certainly not blah thanks to it’s pretty sleeves, tassels and pintuck detailing around the neckline. I love that the tassel threads can be tied to create a keyhole neckline or can be left untied to swing to and fro as playfully as they please. The top is meant to be loose and flowy but does seem to run just a smidgen large so you may want to size down. I’m wearing a small and belted it to create some definition around my waist. Later in the day, I took the belt off and still felt like the top looked great.
I foresee myself getting a lot of wear out of this Long Tall Sally tunic this fall!
Do you also try to wear items that are both comfortable and stylish when traveling? What is your go-to travel style?
