What I'm Wearing: Comfortable Traveling

I've been awake for about 24 hours straight now, but I'm glad to be all unpacked and settled. People never know what to wear while traveling. Depending on where you're off to, you can be stuck on a plane for quite some time so comfort is definitely key. My flight this morning was about 7 hours, long but bearable.

I wore a pink washed out tee with grey jeans paired with a pair of Lela Rose for Payless flats. If you want to wear jeans on a flight make sure they're a pair that have a good amount of spandex in them so they're still comfortable. I packed a cute trimmed cardigan in my carry-on and I was glad I was freezing on the plane!

The view this morning from from my window seat on the plane. Isn't it stunning?

Traveling Essentials: Passport Holder

I'm going abroad at the end of this week. Traveling to Portugal to be exact, and for spring semester I will be studying in Denmark. Because of all this impending travel, I'll be making a series of posts dedicated to traveling needs. As I'm going through my checklist, I realized I should really get a passport holder. I don't want my ticket in one folder and my passport in a random pocket. While I was shopping in the Marc by Marc Jacobs store on Bleecker St. yesterday, I saw a python envelope clutch. When I opened it, I realized it could double as my much-needed passport holder. With all of its compartments, it's perfect especially at only $19.

Internships and College: Teen Vogue Handbook

Some of us have known fashion was their livelihood since the could play dress up in their mothers' closets. Others, such as myself slowly discovered the industry and become enthralled by it daily. Those of us with the slow start may soon have some much needed help on how to break into this competative industry. Teen Vogue is set to release its "Insider's Guide to Careers in Fashion" in October. The book will include career advice, tips, and interviews with big industry names such as Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfield, and Patrick Demarchelier.

You can watch what Amy Astley (Teen Vogue's Editor-in-Chief) has to say about the handbook here:

"Do your homework, go online, visit every museum, and intern. You just need to have a love for what you're doing. It's not about thinking that it's the cool thing; it's about really believing in it."
-Anna Wintour

What do you think about the Teen Vogue Handbook? Are you going to purchase it?
