Airplane Mode

comfortable airport outfit ideas

Yesterday I arrived in sunny Los Angeles for a 4 day mini-vacation. I wanted to share with you what I wore  on my flight because it can be challenging to find a good comfortable airport outfit idea. As someone who travels a lot I have become a pro at finding outfits for the airplane, but this might be my most comfortable airport outfit ideas to date. So of course I had to share it with you; along with my new luggage which I am beyond obsessed with.

“Airplane Mode” Sweater // Jeans // Dove Grey & Rose Gold Vintage Style Luggage

When I came across this “airplane mode” sweater on Etsy I knew I had to snag it. What I didn’t know was that in addition to being a cute graphic sweater, it would also be so comfortable! It is both super lightweight and made from the softest fleece material.

I went with white as I tend to go with light colors when I travel, but it also comes in both black and grey. I mean really, how can you beat a sweater that says “Airplane Mode” for a flight?! Cutest comfortable airport outfit idea ever.

On to this luggage set! I have a ton of luggage that I have acquired over years and years (seriously I think I have 8 suitcases in my storage locker in Vancouver. eek.) But because I have aquired it all in a piecemeal fashion, there are no matching sets. I knew I wanted to get a matching set this year but have held off to find the right one.

I found this vintage luggage set and ordered it almost immediately. This is the carry on and handbag size carry on, but there is also a larger checked bag version; I just didn’t take it with me on this short LA trip.

The luggage is the prettiest shade of dove grey with white accents and rose gold hardware. The rose gold hardware is what sold me on this set; it is even more beautiful in person! You also can’t see it in these photos but the luggage is lined in a soft pink material which is a really pretty touch.

As far as the rest of my outfit, I went with my most comfortable jeans & some wedges. First; the jeans. Seriously, if you have never tried this denim you NEED to. These jeans honestly feel like butter. They are by far the most comfortable jeans I own.

Second, the wedges. I’m wearing these wedges because they were my ‘bulkiest’ pair of shoes for this trip. When packing I always lay out all of the shoes I’ll be bringing and wear the biggest/bulkiest on the flight so as to free up more room in my suitcase. (For the record though I always pack a pair of fluffy socks to wear during the flight – nobody wants to sit on a freezing plane with bare toes!)

So there you have it; my comfortable airport outfit idea. And now I’m going to get back to exploring LA! If you want to see what I am up to be sure to follow me on instagram – I share all about my trip in my instastories!

    This luggage is amazing!! I have been in the market for some new travel pieces and LOVE these!!

    • Lee July 17, 2018 / 8:27 am

      Thanks Ashley! I was unsure how the quality would be, but am 95% happy. In my opinion the outside is really good quality/well made hardware which I was pleasantly surprised about. The inside lining on the mini-carry on though is sort of ‘peeling up’ at the one corner, so I’m not thrilled about that, but overall definitely a great set.
