Travel in Style (and Comfort!)

I'm slowly becoming more and more comfortable with flying. This is probably because I've done more flying in the past two years than I had done in the last 20 years of my life. I've been lucky enough to go on some amazing adventures lately and the excitement of traveling somewhere new far outweighs the fear I have of boarding a plane. 
I've also gotten more experienced with not only packing for long trips, but with what to wear while traveling. There is a fine balance between comfort and style but I believe that you can do both when traveling so today I put together a simple look that will make navigating an airport a breeze. I've found the hardest part about going from a cold weather location to a warm weather location is finding a balance and keeping your body cool/warm. Its a strange conundrum when you leave New York and its 10 degrees out and suddenly when you land somewhere tropical and you're dying of heat in 80 degree weather. 
Personally I learned that the key to traveling from cold to warm weather is layering. I'm always freezing when I'm on an airplane so things like cozy scarves and sweaters are a must, but pairing them with a simple linen popover with rolled sleeves will keep you cool when you step off the runway. I also want to travel in comfort. I applaud you travelers that can wear jeans on a flight but I just get too uncomfortable, mainly because I'm finding any way to stretch out and nap and jeans feel too constricting for me. A fun alternative to the legging is a long maxi skirt or a relaxed matte pant like the pair I featured above. The pinstripe pant with a relaxed material looks put together, but really the pants have an elastic waist for optimum plane comfort! 
Finally, you need a shoe that is easily removable when you're standing in a security line but also gives you comfort when you're wandering through an airport or waiting for a cab. I have found that loafers can be more comfortable than the typical ballet flat and still provide an easy stylish option instead of sneakers.

What do you wear when traveling?


  1. Thanks for sharing that loafers can be more comfortable than flats. I've been considering getting a pair to change up some of my work outfits since I typically walk around too much to wear heels!


  2. layering is definitely key!! longchamps are also FABULOUS travel bags!!!

  3. I always need a big scarf when I fly! It just works in so many ways - blanket, pillow, napkin? Haha :P


  4. Yes to all of this!


  5. What a cute ensemble! I love it all

  6. This is such a helpful post! I have been traveling a lot more than usual, and I usually just wear yoga leggings and tunics. I love how put together this look is :)
