How to Dress For Traveling….(Learn from my horrific mistakes)

Go ahead and judge me for what I wore inflight yesterday.  I was immediately aware as I dressed for the airport that I had made an epic mistake in packing.  Also, I beg of you, to appreciate the fact that I am willing to share my mistakes with everyone so you won’t make the same ones.  So let’s go ahead and get started!

There’s nothing wrong with animal prints at all.  In fact, my friend Katie has an excellent blog entry about how to properly use them.

When traveling, I’m all about being comfortable and looking good (other than the faux paus above).

Broken down this is what had with me.

A Le Sports Sac Weekender Bag.

A cardigan that’s wearable anytime of year.

It gets a little cold on the plane no matter what time of year.  I brought one, in leopard, next time I’ll bring one that’s a solid color.

Footwear

I do not understand women who feel the need to wear high heels on the airplane, unless they’re flight attendants.  Whenever I travel, I want to get in and out of the security line asap, I also want to wear appropriate shoes in case the plane makes an emergency landing. (I know it sounds odd…but you never know)

I love Crocs.  Seriously.  Not ALL Crocs, but some of the ones they make now don’t even look like those horrific clompy shoes that we’ve come to associate Crocs with.

crocsYes, those are Crocs I’m wearing.  Super comfy, true to size.  I got several compliments on them, even though they did not match my outfit.  They are also easy to run in, in case the airplane makes an emergency landing.

The best dressed person on the plane?  This baby.

I mean, look at those shoes!  Denim, paired with a cute two tone pink shirts.  This baby, by far, was the best dressed person on the whole plane.
