I’m actually not a big flyer. The furtherest I’ve ever flown is 2 hours to Melbourne. About 3 times in my life. So the 13 hour flight to LA and then 1 hour connecting flight to Las Vegas is going to be an interesting experience. Apart from all the beauty essentials I went over last week, the other piece of advice I’ve been told is comfort comfort comfort! Cosy comfy trackie dacks and the like. Although I’m not vain and I DO want to be comfortable when I fly, the image of me greeting my stretch limo in Vegas looking like a slobby dishevelled traveller just doesn’t do it for me.
So, I’ve been considering my options and trying to come up with an outfit that strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style. That would be the above outfit. And you know what? I think I’ve found it! The leggings are really soft, stretchy and comfy and while the mini skirt is comfortable, it will preserve my modesty before I board the flight but can be easily slipped off once on board for added comfort. The top is also really soft and stretchy and is really comfortable while the cardigan is cosy, comfy and warm and the faux fur collar is really nice to snuggle up against.
Everything is made of very soft and stretchy fabrics which makes them very comfortable. The converse shoes are comfy and will help to keep my feet warm but can also be easily slipped off if I feel like making myself at home. I plan on packing a pair of socks in my carry on in case I want to have my shoes off but my feet are cold. I’ve got my hair up in this picture but I’ll probably start off with it down and take a hair brush and some hair elastics in my carry on so I can pull it back it starts to annoy me. The bandana is great for keeping my hair out of my face and can easily be undone and taken off if I feel like it.
Of course I’m also taking a travel pillow, my face spritz, some lip balm, a little moisturiser, tissues, a little perfume and some pain killers. I think that should about do it. I’ll be ready to survive the flight in comfort and style and won’t look like a hot mess by the time I meet my limo driver in Vegas.
