traveling pants... :P

So back to my big vacation!!! Because this is all I can think about! I have been looking forward to this since December when we planned this baby.....that's 7 looooong months of Thai dreaming! For this trip I knew right off the bat I wanted to travel light! I often tend to just start throwing different options into my suitcase but we will dive into that a bit later (constant over-packer-never-wearer!) - today I wanted to chat about what to wear while traveling! More specifically, international travel! 

Because long, looooong, long plane rides are, well, long! And I can't, wont be in my PJ's. But I still want to feel cute! But seriously comfort (for me) is even more important! For our trip we have just over 30 hours of plane rides before we reach our destination!!! Yes you read that right, 30 hours!!! Which is way different than the 10 to Greece or 6 to London..... it's 30!!!  I don't want my cute skinny jeans digging into my gut while trying to snooze for the second or 5th time in mere hours! Nor do I want to freeze my tush off! Because I know I am not alone, no matter what I get the coldest row on the plane! I don't honestly think I have ever turned my little air-jet on! ever! However nothing I would wear on the plane (besides maybe shoes) will really work for the hot hot humid heat of Thailand in Aug - so I want to be smart about my choice, bc for the rest of my trip it will be in the suitcase!

There are so many cute, relaxed looks out there now a days, just look: 


I think I have narrowed down what I may wear.....but who knows come weekend I could be running around  town snatching up something different! I do think/know whatever I decide on (some form of pants!) I will be wearing my new Nikes bc I don't want them to take up precious space in my suitcase!  (Note: Mine are not the ones below, I can't find mine online anywhere! :( I got them from a specialty shoe store here, they are Nike Flyknits in a multi grey speckle & they ROCK!)




Comfy Pants, fun slouchy top (that won't wrinkle!), a sweater to layer with and dainty jewelry to not set off any metal detectors! I hate having to take everything off!

What do you think? What would you wear?

  1. I'm all about comfort on all those super long flights so I always choose some comfy boyfriend jeans or leggings. I'm so excited for you and your trip!!

  2. Woo! I highly recommend the Pixie pants from J.Crew. They're basically glorified leggings, but they're a LOT thicker. I'm wearing mine right now :) And I'd do a slouchy sweater with a scarf I can double as a blanket. I'd also wear my glasses because contacts and long flights do NOT mix.

  3. i'd go with the jcrew pixies or some other kind of leggings. jeans get so uncomfortable on long flights.
