With an upcoming weekend getaway to Scottsdale, this week I’ve been outfit planning and packing for a long weekend away in the sun and travel days alike. While I have a variety of tanks, tees, shorts, swimsuits, and dresses packed for the trip, specific travel day outfits are also a necessity. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 1-hour flight or an 8-hour flight – wearing anything remotely uncomfortable is just not my jam. Tight jeans squeezing your waist and heeled booties that pinch your toes when you walk? No, thank you. While I wish I could say “comfort over everything,” and sport a full groutfit, you just never know who you’re going to run into at the airport. Or hey, if your future husband could be the one next to you on the plane ;) (Not this time, just a teenage girl fighting with her mom next to me on this flight – lol). Anyway, I’m all about that cute, effortless athleisure look – especially while traveling.
Wearing layers is probably the number one and most obvious travel day outfit rule. Nothing worse than sweating on a plane. Or the opposite – shivering under the little fans blowing right in your face. Depending on the destination, I usually always wear a t-shirt as my first layer, followed by a sweatshirt of some sort, and lastly a slightly heavier jacket. For pants, leggings or joggers are a safe bet – cute, casual, and comfy. For shoes, I’ve heard you’re supposed to wear your largest, heaviest pair to make more room in your suitcase – I completely ignore this rule due to two things: 1. running the risk of being too hot and uncomfortable is not worth it and 2. making sure the shoes match my outfit. So, I always go with sporty and cute sneaks. Lastly, add a fun bag and accessories to complete the look.
