Maxi Dress: Old Navy
Good morning everyone! As you know if you read my blog or follow me on instagram, I am currently in VEGAS! It has been so amazing so far, and I can’t wait to tell you more about it (and post outfit pics!) when I’m back. For today though, traveling to Vegas inspired me to do a “what to wear when traveling” post. Specifically, what to wear when traveling in the warm weather (my tips are different for what to wear in the cold). Anyway, I snapped these pics as we headed to the airport in Bellingham so please excuse the “rushed” quality! Okay, I’ll stop babbling now; here are my tips for what to wear/bring while traveling during warm weather:
1. Maxi Dress:
Growing up I was never allowed to wear sweat pants or lululemons on a plane. My sister is an Air Canada pilot and I was always told that we had to look “nice” while traveling, and couldn’t just be in sweats. This was incredibly annoying as a kid, but now I am happy I am in the habit of dressing nicely while traveling. The problem, of course, is that no one wants to be uncomfortable while sitting on a plane for hours at a time. (Side note: I am always amazed when I see people in jeans on a plane.. HOW?! they are so uncomfortable!) When I travel in the warm weather I ALWAYS wear a maxi dress. It looks nice still, but is oh-so-comfortable. I highly recommend a maxi dress when flying.
2. Layers ( a jacket AND a scarf):
Planes are inexplicably always freezing. One key when traveling then is to ensure you are layered up. This means a jacket on top of the maxi dress and a scarf. ALWAYS bring a scarf. In the winter this is easier, but even in the summer I find bringing a light weight summer scarf to be so important. It is great for wrapping around you for added warmth once you’re in flight. The scarf I am wearing in these pictures is a perfect summer scarf because it is light weight, and is on trend with the tassels. I also LOVE this scarf for summer.
3. Zip Top Purse:
I will never understand how people bring open totes on a plane. My biggest “requirement” for my traveling outfit is a zip top purse. You often end up having to squish them under your seat and I don’t want to worry about any of the contents falling out! This purse is my other “go-to” for traveling. I have it in black and use it every time I travel in the fall/winter.
4. Wedge Heels:
You need to be able to walk a lot (at least in most airports) so heels are out, in my opinion. I always wear my wedges however, because while you need to be able to walk, I also like to wear shoes that would take up a lot of room if packed. I often travel with carry on (I did for this trip!) so this makes a huge difference for me.
5. Fluffy Socks:
Again, comfort is a priority when traveling, so I always bring a pair of fluffy socks in my purse. That way as soon as I sit down I can take off my wedges and get cozy!
I hope you guys found this helpful! See you back here on Wednesday!
