I’m just amazed when I see these paparazzi moments of super chic celebrities walking through the airport these days. Are they really wearing those heels on the plane? If they are, I actually love the fact that people are getting dressed nicely to travel again.
I must say that seeing people in their PJs and carrying their pillows walking through the airport throws me off a bit. I understand wanting to be comfortable. Still, I think some semblance of decorum is appropriate. After all, you don’t take your pillow and wear your pajamas when you go out to dinner, right? Call me old-fashioned. 😉
I remember when I was a child, traveling on a plane was a big deal and my mom would dress us up pretty nicely for the trip. Well, I think it was also somewhat of a strategy–she would do that in hopes they would bump us up from economy to business when she would ask if there were empty seats available. Sometimes it actually worked!
I’m not saying I dress to the nines when I travel and you will most definitely never see me in heels at the airport. But I do have some tricks for looking “put together” but still being very comfortable. After all, you are getting on a plane and being comfortable is important.
Here are my highs and lows to give you some ideas for your next trip:
Legging: Leggings are still my simple favorite. I like high waisted leggings when I travel because it’s just comfortable to me. Top Shop high-rise
But I do have some tricks for looking “put together” but still being very comfortable...
In-flight slippers: I like to take my shoes off but you will not see me walking around in my socks or barefoot on the place. Yuck. I’ll throw on these little comfy slippers in-flight and they are easily stored in a cute little pouch when you are done using them. Black Mesh foldable or C harlotte Olympia Cat Nap slipper
Tote: If you haven’t got into the backpack craze, then a nice big tote will do just fine. This Leni Penn tote has SO many great pockets inside and it’s nice and deep. Plus when you buy, they give back! or this TOM’S Coated canvas tote
Carry-on roller bag: My mom bought me a Louis Vuitton roller when I was modeling. That piece of luggage has traveled around the world with me and then some. I still have it and it’s in tiptop condition. If I’m traveling by myself I rarely check bags. In fact, I detest checking in luggage so I will do whatever it takes to fit everything into my carry-on. Herschel hard case or Louis Vuitton
