Aiport Fashion

 It has been a while since I have been on a plane.
As it is roughly forty days until I head off to London - I am starting to wonder what I am going to wear while up in the air.
Obviously you want to be comfortable while traveling. I don't think that I can imagine anything worse than traveling in tight jeans.
 
I had a bit of a search around to see what some of the celebs in the airport wear. As you can see below, they look like ordinary, comfortable people like you and I:







 My favorite has got to be Amanda Seyfried. She is naturally stunning and isn't afraid to step out of the house without make-up.









Clearly, a big chunky scarf or a snood is a must... something that I am not in short supply of to say the least!

I think I've got a basic idea of what I'll be wearing now:

  • A pair of black leggings - stretchy and comfortable to move around in and curl up on my chair for +12 hours.
  • My pair of brown ugg boots - I really don't understand why so many people are against ugg boots. I love mine. They are also extremely heavy so to pack them into my suitcase that has a 23kg weight limit would just be stupid.
  • I haven't decided on a top yet but I think it'll probably be a baggy button up - also something that isn't restricting.
  • A snood.
  • No make-up - I'll pack a small make-up bag in my carry-on luggage and spruce myself up before landing.
  • Maaaaaybe a beanie - I know that I'll pack one just in case I wake up after the flight to a bad hair day.
  • Some Chloe perfume - I'll be heading to my local fragrance boutique and putting some perfume into a travel sized bottle so that I can smell pretty and fresh after the flight. Chloe is a new find for me and I'm really enjoying it.
  • A messy bun - easiest way.







 

 
I think I am going to end up looking a little bit like this:
 
 

I have picked up a few tips along the way through my research... such as Lauren Conrad's Advice to keep moisturized. One thing I remember from plane rides is how dry and air-conditioned it is. That's why I will be opting for no make-up. I'll be running to the bathroom once every few hours to slap on some moisturizer that I'll have squirted into a small container. All these liquid limits are just mad. How would I blow a plane up with a bottle of cream??? Well... knowing me I'd find a way. I'm an absolute disaster and find ways to break most things, including myself, in the oddest of ways.  
 
There's other advice she's given like to avoid salty snacks and alcohol but that's just not going to happen.
A) I'm a salt and snack addict.... nothing can stop me.
And
B) I'll need a few glasses of wine to simmer down my nerves!
 
I'll definitely do regular travel posts while along my journey to Europe and the first post will definitely be what I wore on the flight and how it was.. if I watched any great movies, met any great people or managed to consume the terrible on-board wine.

Have a magical week ahead!

  5. I love these ideas for airport outfits! I usually wear a loose tunic top, cardigan, scarf, jeggings, and boots. I usually put my hair in a side braid and put on some blush to look alive. lol
    Have fun in London!

  7. I definitely agree - the list of clothings and accessories you described is (with a few slight variations) what I'd wear for travel :) The goal being to keep it simple, comfy, and stylish so you look glam upon arrival.
    Thanks for dropping by on my blog,
    Love,
