Now that it's Spring, that usually means a lot of us are starting to travel more. I personally travel on planes at least 6 times a year. I'm not an expert, but I know what works for me. My number one rule is COMFORT. That doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice style, but it does mean that less is more and packing lightly is the way to go. Here are my basics for what to wear on your flight and what to keep handy in your carry on. If I can avoid it I never check a bag. I always have a small hard sided suitcase and handy backpack or tote for my essentials. I look for a bag that has pockets or zippers on the outside for easy access ( like this waxed canvas bag from Independent Reign). I definitely have my tablet on hand so I can read magazines, books or if I get really bored I will play a game. Last, but not least are three beauty essentials :: lip balm, face mist, and moisturizer. Trust me on all three and I swear by the face mist. It really does refresh you plus for those prone to dry skin it's really a treat.
Clothing again must be comfortable. If you are sitting anywhere for a long period of time it's just not worth it to not feel as comfortable as possible. My basics are a long or short sleeve t- shirt, leggings, and slip on shoes ( in this example-ballet flats). Depending on where I'm going I would probably also include a cardigan or light jacket and a scarf that can double as a small blanket. So recline your seat, grab your tablet and enjoy the flight!
