travel wear. day ninety-seven.

So I just got back from visiting Eugene OR and OMG i had so much fun! I didn't really want to leave :D The next many posts are going to be what i wore there so i will tell you more about my trip. But first you have to get there. That means planes! So this is kind of the jist of what i wear when i travel via air. I like to wear my heaviest/most space taking boots, which can sometimes mean it takes a bit longer getting them on and off but these have a zipper so it makes it easy. This allows me plenty of bag room for other shoes ;).I also like to layer. I find that in the winter airports are too hot and in the summer they are too cold. Lots of layers mean i can moderate my own temperature.

I see a whole array of clothing when traveling its some really great people watching. I love when people get dressed up to travel, it is very much like a Pan Am kind of thing....i sometimes dream of dressing up more when i travel. Maybe I should just do it! What do you wear when you travel?

  1. adorable! love it! i tend to dress up when i travel too, I love making a good impression ;)

    Where/when are you thrifting in GR tomorrow?! Im jealous! I hope you find amazing things!

    1. i know its so fun! i went thrifting all over the place. I was mostly looking for gifts and was asked to help a friend thrift! i love helping people thrift :D its so fun!

  2. Cute!

    1. ohhh i looked such a mess on the way back because i did not shower before the flight because it was way to early! worst idea ever i always feel icky!

  3. How fun. Love the scarf. Um, I usually dress pretty much as I normally would (so...more dressed up than some but not as much as others?) with some concessions to how and how long I'll be travelling. Like, if it is a flight I'll usually go with ballet flats, no belts etc. Also, usually a dress or skirt because that seems more comfortable to fly in.
