Regular readers of this blog know that I’m always on the lookout for travel-friendly clothing. I firmly believe that with a few well-chosen pieces, you don’t need to maintain a separate wardrobe just for travel.
Many thanks to M.M. LaFleur for their partnership on this post. All ideas and opinions are my own.
Wearing: Woolf Jardigan (c/o) | Eileen Top (c/o) | Mabel Necklace (c/o) | Oshima Pant
While I primarily travel for pleasure these days, during my corporate career I traveled regularly on business. (The first time I read about M.M.LaFleur, I wished they’d been around then!) Some of you may still travel on business, or just need a coordinated, no-nonsense office wardrobe. So I wanted to try M.M. LaFleur for myself and report back.
What makes these pieces travel-friendly? They’re made from lightweight wrinkle-resistant knit fabrics, many of which are machine washable. They’re simple and layer-able, and are easy to re-mix. This is no-fuss dressing at its best!
Above, I’m wearing the Woolf Jardigan (gifted, size M). This piece is a nice marriage of softness and structure. It has removable shoulder pads. It’s also offered in Plus sizes! The necklace (gifted) is made of lightweight buffalo horn links. It’s a good-looking piece that could easily transition to off-duty outfits.
I really like the neck and shoulder line on this Eileen top (gifted). It’s flattering and covers bra straps. It’s also machine washable. I’m wearing Size M.
These Oshima pants have a side zip for a sleek appearance, and slight flare at the bottom. And this is cool: the fabric is lint-resistant! I’m wearing a size 6. (I was in between sizes, so decided to go up for ease.)
One of the nice features on the M.M. LaFleur website is the mention of which pieces will be “Petite-friendly” or “Tall-friendly” to take some of the guesswork out of ordering. Or if you live near one of their locations, you can set up a free hour-long styling appointment to help find which pieces best suit your style and needs.
Is your wardrobe or office more casual? M.M. LaFleur has you covered there too, with their M.M. Casual line.
