Ready, Get Set, Jet Set

And so, New York Fashion Week is in full swing.  I’ll post my highlights on the blog soon – right now I’m loving cocoon silhouettes, the Ming warrior style at Jason Wu and the white and gold gowns at Prabal Gurung  (the latter is snow queen mixed with 70s disco and a bit of super hero thrown in –  and yes, it totally works.)  You can see photos of the shows on Now Fashion.

Fashion stops for no-one and the inescapable task of packing for my London trip took precedence this weekend.  I’m travelling within England as well as across the Atlantic next week and Koza came to my rescue with this perfectly sized Rajani travel tote to make my life easy.  The compartments are perfect for organising my carry on, with the laptop pouch and magazine sleeve a Psychologist who is behind on reading her research papers fashion blogger’s dream.

My travel outfit is a combination of brights, neons, nudes and tailoring.  (Oh, FYI, there is a very necessary pair of flats in my bag, although I am also one of those flyers who will always wear the free socks).  This is a combination I’m hugely fond of right now but I feel that my way with neon is only in the accessories.  This skinny fluorescent belt from ASOS is perfect along with the faded yellow tee from Gap. I love how the belt stands out against the blue legging jeans too.

I’ve had this jacket from River Island for years – a label I really want to visit back in London as their spring collection includes some really interesting prints, check out this pink scarf pink blazer as an example.

And so without further ado I am almost ready for the off.  Gah I hate packing though.

What do you wear to travel, Blog Reader? And how do you wear neons?

Wearing: Heels from Dorothy Perkins; jacket from River Island, belt from ASOS, tee and jean leggings from Gap; bag from KOZA c/o Riot PR for my trip.
