I travel a fair bit to visit my family in Ohio and my husband's family in Florida, for friends' weddings, and of course for vacation. If you've been following along on Instagram, you'll have seen that my husband and I just spent a long weekend in Bermuda, which was our first vacation since our honeymoon in September (i.e. not counting family holidays or weddings). With all that travel, over time I've perfected my travel style when flying.
My mom has always emphasized the importance of looking polished when flying, harkening back to the glamorous golden age of air travel. It doesn't have to be formal but I do want to look pulled together - I'm never going to feel comfortable traveling in leggings or sweats. It's just not me. It's a tricky balance to find the intersection of stylish and practical, but I've learned pick pieces that move with you and can layer.
To that end, I have worn this exact outfit on my last three trips. These joggers are made of a sturdy twill and I love them: they're so comfortable even when sitting through a cross-country flight that I'm never wearing a pair of skinny jeans on a plane again. I've also learned, through trial and error, that any shirt worn in flight should have a crew or boat neck because v-necks get annoying when bending over and button downs bunch / gap. The perfect travel tee should also be long enough that I can reach up to overhead bins without flashing my midriff. This slightly oversized crew by the Great passes those tests with flying colors, getting bonus points for the washed pink color and the super soft feel.
For layers, I always bring my beloved Gap denim jacket (recently seen here) and an oversized scarf. Now, let's talk about these shoes: they couldn't be more perfect for travel. They're so fun, but also great for walking long distances through cavernous airport terminals. The gold version is already sold out, so I recommend grabbing the silver version before they're gone too!
