Flying fashionably

You could follow my plane journey to the beautiful island of Saint Martin pretty intensely via Snapchat, but I totally forgot to show you what I wore! Dressing for traveling is always a challenge: an early morning train ride, a freezing plane, a tropically hot destination… You get confronted with totally different kinds of situations and temperatures in just a matter of hours.

That’s why I think it’s important to always opt for

A) Good quality materials: natural fabrics like cotton, linen or cashmere keep you warm but breathe as well, so you won’t be too awkwardly smelly after that long flight. (Don’t forget to brush your teeth though)

B) Stretchy fabrics: your blood circulation is too important to be tied off by those super tight skinny jeans, so you’ll want to wear loose items or stretchy pieces for a long journey. For ONCE I’ll admit that leggings are actually a good idea, but I personally chose for these stretch trousers by Uniqlo that are perfectly comfy and super stylish at the same time.

Loving the look?

So clothes can definitely help, but I must admit that traveling in a comfortable way was made a lot more easy by Air Caraïbes‘ business class… I’ve only flown business class a few times before, but every time I’m amazed of the HUGE difference it makes for your mind and body when doing long haul flights. After all, the sleeping opportunities (semi-beds + an endless champagne supply) excellently help preventing a horrible jetlag. Yup, I’m convinced!

So what’s your favourite traveling outfit? Do you go Olsen-slouchy all the way or do you like to add a sophisticated touch still? (You never know who you’re gonna meet, right?)

    mooie outfit zelfs wanneer je niet zou gaan vliegen 😉

    Comfy outfits zijn idd een must alsook extra beenruimte wat niet in elke vliegtuig vanzelfsprekend is.

    fijn weekend !

    Awesome outfit and those pants! I would have never said they are stretch O.o Checking the UNIQLO website as we speak…

  • Love the outfit – perfect to look put together but comfortable at the same time.

  • Love the outfit! Super benieuwd naar de volgende posts!! x

  • Super outfit en die business class foto’s maken dat ik OOK WEER WIL VLIEGEN. Ik ga meestal voor de legging (sorry) + shirtdress en dan een hoedje/blazertje voor een beetje sophistication haha. Ben laatst wel een keer met hakken gaan vliegen (voor een korte vlucht en dan met sokken voor als je eenmaal zit) en ik voelde me echt Victoria Beckham op de airport hahaha :p. Zo van: zware koffers? Bagage all over te place? Duizend dingen vasthouden? Wie ik? Wel nee! Nergens last van :):).

    • Haha respect, ik heb nog nòòit met hakken gevlogen, zelfs niet met enkellaarsjes ofzo! You go girl!

  • you look amazing in everything! i wish i was as tall as you!

  • QueenLina

  • mirjam

    the ultimate travel-trousers – perfect! I use to wrap myself in a huge cashmere plaid, which can be used as a blanket, too 🙂

  • Love this travel look! Like you I need comfy clothes but at the same time I want to look a little bit dressed up too! I love those dressed track pants they are comfy but look nice, I also love black jumpsuits (I always wear a tank top under it to not feel half naked when I go to the bathroom).
