Good Morning and Happy Friday!
I am hopping on the train this afternoon shortly after work and relaxing in comfort on the way to visit my family in Raleigh.
I can not wait! The train is my favorite way to travel for a weekend visit especially when it's just me. Just to be able to sit back and read a book or do a crossword puzzle and not have to worry about driving or traffic (Friday at five o'clock trying to leave Charlotte on 85 North is a nightmare! ~ especially when it is a race weekend which it is this weekend.)
Does anyone remember back in the day when people actually dressed up to travel??? Everyone looked nice and it was actually a treat to travel. These days I see people in ratty jeans and hoodie sweatshirts two sizes too big, people who look like they have just woken up with no shower, etc. and it really irks me. I know we don't all have style or care what we wear but it would be nice to put a little thought into you outfit when you travel. You NEVER know who you may meet or what adventure waits around the corner.
I put a lot of thought into my travel outfit for today especially because I am being treated to dinner when I arrive in Raleigh. Granted I based the outfit on my black skinny jeans but I have snazzed it up with black patent leather pumps, a vintage horizontal striped blouse, and my favorite leather jacket.
It's no suit but I feel good!
Now it's time for inspiration photos

Ok ~ This is not so realistic... it's a shot of Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love
(BTW I loved that movie!! It made me want to pack my bags and see the world. You only live once.)
I would give anything to be there right now. One day... very soon.
