By the time I had to get ready to leave the door to make our flight, I realized I should've asked for some outfit tips on what to wear. I have only taken one other internationally flight and that was almost a decade ago so I could've used some brushing up. However I just went my instinct and wanted to share my three tips for dressing for long plane rides:
- Wear a few layers that can be shed and stored easily. You want to dress for the weather at your destination, be comfortable while you're waiting at the airport, and stay warm on the plane when you're high up in the air. The airline may provide a blanket at your request but in case they don't, I like to bring a big scarf that can function as a blanket or a pillow.
- Stretchy items are a must! There is nothing worse than feeling constrained by your clothing when you are stuck on a plane. For my bottom layer I prefer to wear shift dresses with tights, maxi dresses, or leggings/jeggings and a basic tee. Then pile on the cardis, jackets, coats.
- Dress to be presentable at your destination. Or you could pack an outfit in your carryon and change on the plane. In case the unimaginable (but common) happens and the airline loses your luggage, you want to make sure that you have an outfit you can wear at your destination. For me since we are landing real early in Rome and can't check into the hotel until the afternoon I didn't want to waste any time getting ready to explore. It's off the plane and off to see Rome!
What are your requirements for long flights? I also make sure to pack lots of snacks in my carryon so that I am both comfy and not hungry =P

I hope you guys had an enjoyable weekend! There was so many events going on the week before our trip that our holiday snuck up on us. We celebrated two birthdays, our anniversary, and had the honors of celebrating the wedding of Carrin and Oliver. Lots of joyful occasions! Take care all!
