I have travel on my mind as I just returned from a trip to Paris, France with my DIL Kelly. Paris is the perfect city for so many things but it’s especially perfect for a girl's trip with oodles of shopping, museums, outdoor cafes, and Versailles. Today, I'm sharing 5 comfortable and stylish airport travel outfits.
I lived overseas for ten years so I’m somewhat of an expert when it comes to packing whether it’s for a long-haul flight or a short junket. One thing I know is that you have to dress well when it’s time to head to the airport. Why you ask? Isn’t the whole idea of travel these days to be comfortable? Yes, you definitely need to be comfortable especially if you’re crammed like sardines in Coach. And if you’re seated in a window seat you have to traverse over a few seats to get in and out.
Air travel is tedious and uncomfortable but dressing nicely makes you stand out in a positive way. It shows a sign of respect and airline employees respond well to passengers who are dressed well. Years ago when I landed in the States from a long haul flight my kiddos and I were headed through security and customs when I was separated from my oldest who had dread locks at the time. Security flagged him and was going to detain him when I showed up in a smart outfit. Once I explained to security that this was my son, they asked a few questions and sent us on our merry way. Looking trustworthy and stylish will help you negotiate if you find yourself in a pickle.
