I'm not saying you're a mess but I'm not saying you're not.
I usually travel on an airplane maybe once a year. This year, I've already been on a plane three times, with more to come. Thus, I thought I'd do a post on airport fashion. I always feel silly for the amount of time I mull over what I'm going to wear on the plane, but nowadays, I generally like to look presentable and not just wear sweatpants and hoodie and call it a day. Decently comfortable shoes are a good idea, something easily removable for security or in case you have to run through the airport for a connecting flight. For bottoms, I opt for leggings (though in the below photos, I wore some legging like jeans). They are super comfortable for the already uncomfortable cramped flight you're going to be on (unless you're flying first class, in which case, I have no idea what that is like but I imagine I would feel comfortable in anything). On top, I tend to wear layers because of the unpredictable whether of the airport, the airplane, the state you're going to.. etc. If you have layers, you can always take them off if you get hot and adjust your own temperature since you can't change the atmosphere around you.
These photos are the remaining ones from my trip to South Carolina in January.
