I am back from my trip & while I am so sad to have left Barbados - there is nothing like coming home to your own room & routine after some time away. I am so excited to start sharing my outfits from my trip, so let's jump right in today with an outfit that I wore to the airport. Travel looks should be a combination of comfortable & easy, but still put together. Continue reading for some of the best & worst pieces to wear at the airport.
BEST AIRPORT PIECES
Thin Layers - No matter where you are traveling, someplace warmer or colder, wearing layers on the plane is a must do for me. The temperatures while flying can be so unpredictable that I always make sure that I am able to shed or add a layer. A chambray top is always one of my go-to pieces for layering since it helps build a put together, classic outfit & I always carry a light weight shawl or scarf in my tote!
Sneakers/Flats - While in the airport, you may be walking or standing in line quite a bit, not to mention, you have to remove your shoes to go through security, so ditch the heels this time and opt for a comfortable pair of sneakers or ballet flats.
Large Tote - Since each traveler is only allowed 2 carry on items in total (& one is almost always my suitcase), I bring an extra large tote bag on the plane with me. This tri-color tote is sleek and stylish and holds everything from snacks to magazines for my flight.
WORST AIRPORT PIECES
Bobby Pins - Keep your hair styling simple on your travel day & avoid too many bobby pins. Even though they are small, they could set off the metal detector!
Flip Flops - Think about how many people stand in the security line at the airport. Now, think about swapping feet germs with of them - GROSS. Wear a pair of sneakers that require socks or at least carry a pair of socks in your tote so you can quickly put them on when it's time to walk through security. Bonus Points: Socks keep your feet warm on the plane!
Too Much Jewelry - While a little sparkle jazzes up any outfit, it could set off the metal detector & isn't always the easiest to remove with short notice. Your best bet is to pack your jewelry in your carry on bag & put it on once you arrive at your destination.
