I will be wearing a comfortable pair of Paige jeans – important to note that these jeans have some stretch but still retain their shape. I have a black, long sleeve layering t-shirt that will go beneath the purple cashmere sweater. I bought this sweater specifically for traveling on airplanes because it can be worn in different ways – it’s actually asymmetrical. It is super soft and fits loosely over clothing so it can be worn like a poncho. I added the scarf for color and style, plus if the sweater comes off, the scarf still offers some warmth. Black, leather knee-high boots will keep my feet warm but still be comfortable throughout the flight and layover in Frankfurt. I should get to our hotel in Barcelona with little wear and tear on the clothes, provided I don’t spill my glass of wine. I wish I could be so sure about the wear and tear on myself. Jet lag is a common issue for me as I don’t sleep well on planes, namely because it’s not my bed! And since we don’t have much time in Barcelona, I need to figure out a way to stay refreshed. Any great ideas out there to help with jet lag? I’d love to hear them!
Once I’ve got the plane outfit down, I can have some fun. I chose four outfits, all with light jackets, that can be worn with the boots I’m wearing on the plane, or booties which are a wardrobe staple for me. Everything is layered so I can add or subtract as I need to. I hang everything up on a clothing rack that I bought from Bed Bath and Beyond so I can see it all put together and then I take a photo of each outfit. This way I can remember why I brought the items I did and what I intended to wear them with. Did I mention jet lag is a problem for me and I need all the help I can get so having photos of my clothing just makes getting dressed that much simpler.
