When you read this, I’ll be on a plane to Hawaii (fingers crossed for no delays) for 10 days. Woe is me. Just kidding, I’m pumped. I travel a decent amount for work and personal, so I’ve spent a lot of time trying to craft the perfect travel outfit. A travel uniform, dare I say?

Unless I’m having an in-person business meeting on the plane or heading straight to a work function from the airport, I refuse to get dressed up (in a traditional sense) for my flight. With that said, I also refuse to wear pajamas or look like a total hot mess. And that’s how we got here, to this little number in which I’m casually posing below.

As a standard rule of thumb, I travel in my classiest jeggings, athleisure tshirts/sweatshirts, some sort of sneaker or flat and my carry-on luggage combo. Since we’re headed to Hawaii this trip, I’m traveling in my hawt water shoes.

Ever since I traveled through Europe for two weeks this summer with just a carry-on suitcase and a backpack, I’ve committed to never bringing more with me again. It’s liberating to not be weighed down (literally) by bags when you’re running through the airport or trying to find your AirBnB. Plus, you don’t have to worry about airlines losing your baggage. I just stuff my purse into my backpack when going through security so I don’t get yelled at for having more than two bags. #rulebreaker

Tell me: What’s your go-to travel outfit?

  • Hawaii!!? Awesome, have a blast. I agree, I don’t like to dress up but I don’t want to look like I’m wearing pajamas either! hah! I like your look. My favorite is jeans and a comfy shirt too.

    • When I see people in heels, suits, etc on the plane, I just feel sorry for them, ha! Thanks, and happy new year, Erica 🙂

  • I went to Hawaii 20 years ago! Sheesh I’m old 🙂

    • Where in Hawaii did you go?

      • We went to Kauai island in 1995. It had been hit by a hurricane and was in the process of being rebuilt at the time. It was still pretty!

    • Where in Hawaii did you go?

  • You look so comfortable and adorable!! <3

  • You are too cute, love that sweater. Great travel tips, I see people traveling with 5 bags and I am like poor souls heheh

    • Flying is stressful enough without having to drag around all of those bags! Consolidate, people!

    I wear similar clothes when traveling. I like being comfortable but I don’t want to be a slob.

    • I’m right their with you. I can’t bring myself to travel in sweatpants or pajamas.

  • Lisa Marie Heath

    You look adorable!

  • I stick to comfy clothes while travelling as well. Enjoy your trip!

    • Thanks – our trip was a blast. It’s easy to mix comfy with cute, but it seems like a lot of airline passengers don’t get our memo 😉
