NYFW Travel Look with Soma (& Link Up)

September 5, 2018

Dressing to travel is always a balance of comfort and style, and I feel like I’ve hit just the right note here with this outfit from Soma!


This post is a collaboration with Soma. All opinions are all my own as always.

Needing the perfect comfortable and chic look for my plane trip to New York Fashion Week, I reached out to Soma to ask for some items.  If comfortable clothing is essential for air travel, then it’s even more necessary for a red eye flight!  I’m loving these Soma apparel pieces.  Chic and stylish, yet as comfortable as my favorite SOMA jammies.

Why a red eye?  Well, one difficult part of juggling a career as a style blogger and a teacher, is that teachers only get a few personal days a year.  Since every day is precious,  I hate to waste one day on travel time, so I’ve become queen of the red eye flight.  It’s not ideal and I don’t get as much sleep as I’d like to, but pure adrenaline and absolute excitement keep me going!

The Pieces

French Terry Everyday Wrap

This piece is a wear-all-the-time comfortable lightweight wrap/cardigan. You’ve already seen it dressed up with a Soma maxi dress.  Here it’s the perfect little topper for a comfortable travel look.

Smoothing Ponte Pants

I’m a sucker for any pants with “smoothing” or “slimming” in the title!  And these Smoothing Ponte Pants do not disappoint. They’re as comfortable as legging, but with more substance. Perfect balance of lounge and “real” clothing!

Style Essentials Soft Jersey Short Sleeve Tunic Tee Aerial White Stripe

Loving this long V-neck tunic; it’s heavenly soft and long enough that I don’t have to worry about it riding up on the plane.  Black and white stripes always look chic!



By time this blog post is up, I will be in New York and enjoying the madness that is NYFW!  I’d love it if you’d follow along with me on my NY adventures via Instagram and Facebook!  And of course look for plenty of coverage here on the blog in the next few weeks!  And as always, get the behind the scenes scoop with my weekly newsletter.

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    I thought you are a teacher. How comes that you can go to NY fashion week during the school year?

    I’ve simply GOT TO make it to Fashion Week with you one of these seasons, dearest Dawn!! So far the timing and budget haven’t worked out…but I’m steadfastly refusing to give up hope. And in the interim, I wish you the very BEST trip to New York EVER!! XOXO

    Ooh, have a fantastic time at NYFW! (Although from your Paris Hilton selfie on Instagram the other day, looks like you already are!)
