Happy Thursday! Today I thought we could chat travel! There’s quite a few mixed opinions on what one should wear to the airport. Some believe you should dress up out of respect to flying, others believe you can wear whatever casual attire your heart desires if you’re paying an arm and a leg for a flight. I generally fall in the middle! I rarely travel for work [maybe 2 or 3 times a year!] so I don’t head to the airport in my business best. However, I’m past the college age of looking cute in leggings if I’m not working out. Some girls pull it off, me? Not so much! I’ve shared before I really dress per destination, but I thought I’d share a pretty safe look for many summer travels this season.

One trick for making a casual look more dressy is to go in a monochromatic direction. I paired white shorts with a silky white tank and it automatically looks a bit more polished. I toped it off with a light, oatmeal cardigan that is perfect for a flight- or if you need to nurse on a flight as well! 🙂 Then, I threw on these sandals that have a little heel for dressiness, but are so comfortable. I could walk Disney World in these bad boys. I finished the look with gold jewelry [I’m quite predictable!] and my favorite $14 sunglasses. Easy!

I’d love to know, what do you like to wear to the airport in the summer?!

  1. This is such a great looking outfit for travelling. I’d swap it for trainers myself, but only because I don’t like heels. Adore the neutral colours too!

    Scarves are a must for me when traveling. So easy to drape over your shoulders on a chilly plane.

    Love this look, it’s basically my summer uniform! I’d definitely wear something similar while traveling, although I might switch the shorts out for white jeans (depending on where I’m traveling to) since planes can be freezing sometimes. I hope you plan to do write about y’all trip to The Broadmoor, I loved my visit last summer and can’t wait to see what you think!

    Monochromatic – yassss girl. I have been loving everything monochromatic this season. While flying, I love the Lululemon Vinyasa scarf instead of a cardigan (LOVE this cardigan though, I’m looking for one in a blush color). It unzips so I usually wear it as a scarf until I get on the plane then unbutton it, blast some air on me, and cozy up with a cocktail. I’m still in the “college” phase (it’s been YEARS since I’ve been there so idk what I’m thinking…ha) of looking less than perfect on a flight. However, a usual outfit I love wearing which is cozy is black leggings, a long chambray shirt, my fav black Chanel flats, and the Lululemon scarf. I typically fix my hair but go sans make up due to the nature of my skin – it tends to get dry very easily. This way, I can go to the bathroom mid flight and spritz some lotion on my face and feel better. I have a flight soon and this post just got me so excited for it!! xo

  9. I LOVE this look!! And I have the same bag, and it has always been my favorite bag to bring when traveling because it’s the perfect size to lug around, yet also perfect to fit what you need 🙂
