Traveling in Style
I've returned from a wonderful trip to San Diego and am back in the swing of things. It's really hard to be in a place that feels like 24/7 vacation and beautiful weather, and then get hit with humidity and real life back at home!
While I was on my way to the best coast, I thought it would be fun to share how I like to travel, and maybe learn from you! I don't consider myself a professional jet setter, but I've flown enough times to be super prepared for maximum comfort!
While I do love to live in my yoga capris, I try not to look like a complete bum in public. On the way to San Diego, I decided to try and wear something slightly more stylish, while trying to remain comfortable for a half day of flying and a layover. Here's what I found to be the perfect outfit:
1. Glasses! I had to head to the airport at 4:30 a.m. after a whopping 2 hours of sleep. I knew I was going to attempt to sleep on the plane, so it was best to wear glasses instead of letting my eyes dry out on the flights.
2. Unless you're sitting with a friend, it's most likely that you don't know who you'll be lucky to sit next to. It could be your new best friend, an unruly child, someone who smuggled a chimichanga on the plane, or someone who could have benefitted from taking a shower that morning. To combat any weird odors on the plane, I'll breathe into a scarf. It also comes in handy if you get cold!
3. A comfortable shirt goes a long way! I picked a racerback because I like the cut, I can wear a sports bra underneath (more comfort!), and I like having my arms free (and if it's hot my armpits can cool down). If you're a t-shirt gal, live it up!
4. Instead of my usual yoga pants, I thought wearing a maxi skirt would be a great idea. I picked my loosest fitting skirt and it feels like I'm wearing a blanket. If you're cold, you're covered down to your toes, and if you get hot on the plane, you can easily hike up your skirt to your knees and still be appropriate. I'm so thankful maxi skirts and dresses are in. Stylish muumuus for the win!
5. Not shown - a cardigan. Temperatures can vary on a plane and when you land, so it's best to dress in layers. There are times when I'm freezing on a plane or burning up. Wearing layers means you can add or subtract clothes (an appropriate amount!) to stay comfortable.
What do you wear to stay comfortable on a plane? Do you dress to the nines like in the olden days or do you break out your pajama pants?
