Home again, Home again, Jiggity Jig.

I'm going home today. Home being a little yellow house in a little town a little ways away from Boston. Three weeks of sun (please!), mosquitos (oof!) and mom's cooking (yum!). Course, before actually being home, I have to travel to get there. This involves an hour tube ride to Heathrow, 2 hours at the dreaded airport (where I am currently typing) and then getting on a plane for 7 hours. Fun.

Generally, when traveling, my "airplane clothes" consist of a lot of dresses and a lot of american apparel, for the sheer comfort of their clothes. This time however, I am jumping off the plane and going straight to a fancy dinner since my grandma also is in, I had to skip the formula and try to tackle the task of wearing something comfy, yet would make me look impossible fresh after hours on a plane.

My solution:

1. Comfort & prettiness: a flowy, non -constricting dress. Slip on boots, to make security a tad easier.2. Knee socks, so that when I get on the plane and the cold inevitably sets in, I can merely pull 'em up to keep me warm. When I arrive in 80 degree Boston, down again they go.

3. Scarf and cardigan, again to battle the cold plane and yet easily removable to put in my carry-on when necessary.
4. Last, but certainly not least: the two most essential things. I could never get on a plane without my passport, and more importantly, chapstick!

And, coincidentally, my plane is now boarding, so cheerio!

love the plane wear. Great combination of comfort and (first) class (pardon the pun). Talk about travelling in style.

this is my kind of outfit!

and cool to see the latering step by step, it just gets better with each garment.
