Feb 10th, Jet Setter

 I have a very early flight to sunny  southern California today, so I’m showing what I am wearing on the plane.

To me, comfort is key- but I also don’t want to look like I’m in sweats or my pj’s (I’ve actually seen adults wearing pj’s on planes!)

Instead of sloppy sweats, I’ve chosen comfy leggings. To be honest, I resisted leggings for a long time- thinking I am way too old to be wearing them.

I remember when they were popular in the early 80’s (thank you Madonna). I figured that since I wore them the first time around I should probably resist the second.

So, that being said- I don’t wear them a ton- but when I do- boy are they comfy. For my top I’ve chosen this loose tunic. As with the skinny jeans, with leggings it is VERY important that your shirt hangs down way below your bum. It can’t just graze the butt- it needs to be full coverage. Trust me.

I’m showing my original look on the right- and then on the left I’m showing how by adding just a few pieces I turned this boring outfit into something more interesting. Plus, having layers on an airplane is essential.

Don’t forget to click the ‘vote for us’ button on the right! Just 1 simple click each day keeps me in the running. Thanks! 🙂

I use my largest purse as my carryon- it fits my laptop, magazines and everything else!

I’ve hooked up with Girlmama for Fashion Friday. Check it out!

  1. This is seriously a very good look! And doesn’t look like you wore your exercise clothes out – which is always a worry with capri length leggings.

    safe travel.

  2. Mmm, I’m still not sold on the leggings. I think this would be a fabulous outfit, just with different pants. Maybe black yoga pants, if slacks would be too uncomfortable on the plane? Speaking of, which what do you think of wearing yoga pants?

    • Thanks for your comment. To be honest, I’m not a fan of wearing yoga pants out- unless my entire outfit is a workout outfit. If that’s the case, I think you can really rock a cute look (I love Lululemon).
      I’m not totally convinced the leggings are the cutest thing either- but boy was I comfy on the plane! 🙂

  3. not that anyone asked, but yoga pants belong only at yoga studio unless you’re a 18 year old college student. I don’t understand the draw – they’re sweatpants.

      • because 18 year olds have a pass on just about anything in fashion. But I stand by it – they’re structured sweatpants. They’re not meant to be “out” attire. There are so many other ways to be comfy and look put together than taking the yoga pants way out.
