A Chic & Relaxed Travel Look

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm super excited because in just over two weeks, I'll be on a plane to a beautiful island! I'm lucky enough to be working for a company that allows me to go on press trips for work, so even though I'll be working while I'm there, I can't wait to see everything this island has to offer. That's why this week, Kaptivating Thoughts is going to be all about travel! Today, I'm sharing a perfectly chic and equally relaxed look that's comfortable enough for a flight or long car ride, but will still make you feel confident while traveling.

Does anyone else live for white denim or is it just me? I swear white jeans can make the most relaxed outfit look instantly chic! My favorite pair of white jeans are the high-rise skinny jeans from J.Crew — they're such great quality and won't make you feel like your sacrificing comfort just to rock skinny jeans. The material has a bit of stretch to it, so you can enjoy all of the airplane treats or car ride snacks you need without feeling uncomfortable!

Here, I paired my white jeans with the softest button-up boyfriend shirt from Express. I love the distressed look of this top, creating a nice balance with the polished jeans. This is probably one of my favorite shirts (I have it in literally three different colors, including the green linked above!) not only because it's so cute, but also because the material is a lot more comfortable than your typical chambray or denim button-up. 

I finished this look with the comfiest of sneakers — Sperry Seacoast Canvas Sneakers! These adorable sneakers are super comfortable (just be sure to wear some sort of ankle sock or liner to ensure you won't get blisters if you plan on walking a lot!). They come in other colors that are equally adorable (seriously considering getting the white pair, too😉) but I totally love my black Sperry's with brown laces that match any outfit perfectly.

And, of course, you'll need a big carry-on bag to complete your travel look! I love how spacious my Louis Vuitton Neverfull is, making it perfect for throwing in all of the last-minute items on my way out the door to the airport... I swear this thing never runs out of space! I've included 8 affordable but equally chic options in the gallery above since a Louis is a major investment!
