What to Wear – Airplane Travel

So……… we’re going to London! And Glasgow! We leave tomorrow night! We are more than excited, as you can imagine. We have some friends living in Scotland right now so we thought we’d visit them and start with a jaunt in cheery ol London. So of course I had to share a little round-up of what I think is great to wear while you’re traveling on an airplane. I am against wearing your jammies as some people seem to do these days…but I am for wearing something totally comfortable. So here goes…



1. I start with a tank in case the plane is hot like this one from Zara…; 2. And also wear some sort of cardigan or wrap top like this one from J. Crew Factory; 3. I bring a Turkish Towel – they’re great to keep you warm on the plane if it gets chilly, and you can also use it on your trip as a picnic blanket, beach towel, or even a bath towel if you need one; 4. I always seem to wear jeans with a little stretch, like my favorites from Urban Outfitters; 5. I also pack a large carry-on like this one from Tory Burch so I have room for snacks, my kindle, iPhone, headphones, etc…; 6. I bring cute socks like these from Target to wear if you need to take off your bulky shoes (see #8); 7. Water. Airlines give out those tiny bottles nowadays which is not nearly enough. I buy the biggest bottle I can find once I’m at my gate in the airport; and 8. I always wear the bulkiest shoes I am packing for my trip to save room/weight in my suitcase. I’ll be wearing my Isaac Mizrahi Oletta Oxford Shoes.

  1. Hi dear! I just found you through the Northeast Blogger Network! Loving your blog, and I just started following you on bloglovin ❤
    HAVE SO MUCH FUN on your trip! I'm going to london for the first time in 2 weeks!! (Also france). Let me know what you did and loved so I can get some good ideas!!
    As far as the airport photo I'm with you, I'm anti-PJs. I love something comfy, but still cute, (you don't wanna step outta the plane in a fab location looking a hot mess in your doggie pawprint patterned pjs (what, I don't own a pair of those… I was just saying…as an example..)
    I always wear my bulkiest shoes too haha!
