What to Wear on the Plane for a Super Long Flight

July 30, 2015 • By

I admit that I used to love to travel. (Does that sound a bit strange, coming from a travel blogger?)

Now,  I just like being in a new place. The act of getting there is often just a ‘necessary evil’.  Jaded? I’ don’t think so. But after years of doing what needs to be done, so that I can experience the beauty and magic of a new destination, I’ve gotten pretty good at it.

Just remember, there are three basic rules: 1) Keep it Simple, 2) Stay Comfortable and 3) Be Prepared.  In the meantime, I’d still like to look good. Wouldn’t you?  So here’s what simple, comfortable and at least a little bit chic looks like to me.
