Happy #fashionwednesday! The day before I took these pictures, it was 65 degrees, sunny and GORGEOUS out. So I thought, “oh I’ll take advantage of this weeks nice weather and shoot some outfits tomorrow!” and wouldn’t you know, when I got up to take the pictures, it was 40 degrees with bitter wind chill and it was completely overcast. So. That’s how my week was going, just FYI. Regardless of the crappy weather, I still LOVE this outfit and it’s actually one of my go-to tops for traveling. I travel a lot so I have the whole travel style on lock down, it seems. Here are my rules of travel style etiquette I always follow to make sure I’m cute, comfortable and practical, all at the same time. Let’s dive into this.
SHOP THIS POST:
Airports are notoriously freezing and so are airplanes. Odds are, if you dress in shorts, sandals and a tank top, you will be cursing the airport gods and wishing you’d grabbed that long sleeve pullover on your way out the door. Don’t be silly. Pack layers and bring an extra pair of fuzzy socks for the plane ride.
As mentioned above, you’d be totally wise to dress in layers and a few of them at that. If you are going to be landing in Louisiana in the summer, be prepared to strip 90% of your clothes off when you get off the plane. I’d suggest a tee and sweatshirt with joggers and cute sneakers. That way, if you are heading somewhere warm or tropical, you can ditch the sweatshirt and just tie it around your waist without sweating to death!
It makes sense to dress nicely if you have plans or meetings directly after landing. However, make sure you choose your pants wisely. There is LITERALLY nothing worse than sitting on a 2+ hour flight in tight jeans and an unforgiving waist band. I like to travel in either joggers, leggings or super stretchy jeans. Anything I can move around in and sit for hours at a time without getting an indention from pant buttons underneath my belly button.
Those TSA check ins, amiright? You’re already going to have to hassle taking them off once but if you did what I mentioned above and bring fuzzy comfy socks for the flight, you are going to slip those suckers off again in flight. Just make sure you don’t wear shoes without socks to being with so you don’t kill your neighbors with stinky feet.
Turns out, airports aren’t exactly winning awards for “most clean” anytime soon. I love these white pants, and I absolutely will change into them after my flight to look cute upon landing, but I’m not sitting in the airport in them. That’s just asking for a stain on my butt that looks alarmingly questionable.
If I haven’t stressed this enough – it’s CHILLY in the airport. There is nothing cuter than rocking an adorable beanie and messy hair. I always do beach waves in my hair if I’m flying (it doesn’t look greasy as fast as my hair when it is straight) so the combo of beauty waves and a comfortable beanie is totally airport chic.
While it may be tempting to glam it up, it’s going to double your time spent in airport security. Just skip the belt and jewelry so you can speed through without the hassle. They have increased security for many things, not just garments so make sure you read up on what is and isn’t allowed on your fight before getting to the airport.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
Fun fact about me: I actually HATE flying. It’s one of my least favorite things to do. It makes my ears pop and hurt because I have the worlds tiniest ear drums (and YES I’ve tried every trick in the book) but it is an easy way to get from point A to point B without having to spend 27 hours driving there. It’s also statistically the safest way to travel. So, if it means I get to experience amazing parts of the world in less time, I’ll take it!
I am obsessed with this top and it isn’t uncommon to see me rock something like this while in flight on my way to a work event! AND here’s my favorite part about this top: It’s ONLY $20 RIGHT NOW AT KOHL’S. I linked it up above so be sure to check it out. They have 5 colors and it’s stinking adorable. For reference: I am wearing a size small!
What is your go-to airport outfit?? Do you have an airport uniform so to speak?
