STYLE ME GRASIE » fashion & lifestyle blog by grasie mercedes

travel in style…always!

On my recent flight from LAX to JFK I noticed something I could no longer ignore: women looking like slobs when flying! Yeah ok, I get it, you want to be comfortable…its a long flight…blah, blah, blah. But there’s a way to be comfortable and still look fabulous! So please give your Uggs and matching sweatsuits to charity…NOW!

5 Clothing Items (you probably already own) That Are Comfy & Still Stylish:

1. Flats: Throw on a pair of fashionable flats! Whether ballet black, printed or fleece moccassins, flats are a great comfy alternative to Uggs. They are easy to slip on and off at airport security and they look feminine and chic.

2. Cotton or Jean Leggings: Leggings are a way more put together looking than sweats and equally as warm and comfortable! Plus no belt needed so you wont get held up at security.

3. Long Cardigan, Sweater or Coat: Invest in a fashionista fun sweater or coat that covers your bum and keeps you warm. We all know how chilly an airplane can get and since no one offers blankets anymore…bring your own! In the form of apparel.

4. Stylish Scarf: Its pretty hard to NOT look totally awesome when you’re rocking a kick-ass scarf. Scarves are the ultimate accessory because they really can bring any outfit from boring to WOW! Its also a great airplane tool for covering your face when your rude neighbor rips a stinky one (you know what I’m talking about) 😳

5. Carry-On Bag: A shopping bag is NOT an acceptable carry-on bag! Even if its a “designer” shopping bag like Barneys or Saks! Luggage can be pricey but its a total investment and can make traveling so much easier. Invest the money…its worth it! Have fun with colors, styles and prints. But make sure its a sensible fun, you don’t want to spend money on a pattern or color you’re gonna be sick of after your 3rd trip.

  • Grasie, what’s wrong with my Juicy Couture sweatsuit? Couture is couture! Actually, it’s not really Juicy, it’s Jewsee. I bought it at Loehmanns. It says SHALOM across the butt. That’s OK for flying, right?

    In an effort to be more put-together when traveling (and in life), I recently got nice carry-on luggage. Did you ever read that post? “How To Be Success On Wheels.”

      great blog post laura! very funny. what always gets me with the carry-on bags are my shoes!!! im totally capable of packing sensibly but i like a certain shoe for day, one for night, one for travel, blah blah blah. HA! and as for your juicy couture…get rid of it!!! xo

      • It’s always the shoes. You need sneakers, you need heels, you need boots, you need flats. Meanwhile, my husband just needs his one pair of jeans, a pair of nicer shoes, couple of shirts and a sweater. Not fair. You realize, of course, that I never owned Juicy sweats even when they were “in.” Because they were always gross. And they didn’t work with my holiday sweaters. Give me some credit.
