We recently had to take an almost 4 hour (one way) drive to Milwaukee (and back home), and when trying to decide what to wear for the trip, I remembered reading a post a while ago titled something like "the best pants for travel" where the blogger mentioned black Ponte Knit Pants and that's what I decided to wear.
You may wonder what Ponte Knit Pants are - these pants are double knit with two way stretch that won't bag out. Some are a pull on style some come with a zipper and button with practical pockets. They are available in a skinny, straight or bootcut. Due to the way they are made they can be dressed up for the office or a night out and the stretch double knit makes them most comfortable for long car or air travel.
We don't usually take such long car rides in the winter so this was my first time trying out these pants for a long car ride and they did not disappoint. Due to the double knit they also kept me warm enough while taking a walk along Lake Michigan on this day when it was just around the freezing point.
I don't have the best photos to share as the purpose of this trip was to take my daughter to Milwaukee Ballet for an audition. We did stop at the Milwaukee Public Market to get some lunch, but other than that we just walked around downtown while she was at the audition. We also decided to drive back home the same day as winter weather was in the next day's forecast and I didn't feel like braving winter weather on the road for almost 4 hours.
