Heading out this morning on vacay to Santa Barbara and Ojai, to spend some QT with my aunt. We are so overdue for some “us” time and I couldn’t be more excited to be spending it together in the California sun! It also happens to be Fiesta in Santa Barbara, this weekend, and I am here for it, people!
Brandon and I decided to fly into LAX and take the scenic route down PCH into Santa Barbara. We could have flown straight to SB, but our layover in LAX was longer than what it would have taken us to drive there, and it’s been years since I’ve driven the Pacific Coast Highway, so I welcomed the road trip. I will say though, we had a romantical idea to rent a convertible for our travels, and due to a last minute change in plans, our rental went from about $400 to $1500. Needless to say, we will now be renting a Camry. LOL!
When it comes to airport travel, there’s really only one must for me: comfort. I seriously do not understand the girls that can trek through the airport with heels on. I mean, more power to you if your feet can handle the miles of airport walking, but…mine can’t.
Here’s what I wear on a plane:
Flats – Flats are a must when it comes to flights. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but closed toes are also at the top of the list. I don’t know why, but it just grosses me out to have my toes exposed on a plane. I bought these flats in Spring, and they haven’t let me down. They are easy to throw on with just about everything, and have actually held up, despite how low-priced they are.
Comfortable Pants – I mostly reach for comfortable pants like leggings, or joggers, when it comes to flying. Planes have such tight spaces, and I don’t want to feel any more constricted than I have to. I recently added these to my closet, and am so glad I did. They are super comfy and will be perfect for the flight!
Layers – You will never catch me without some sort of jacket or sweater on a plane. It’s too much of a gamble for me to go into an uncontrolled air environment… It might be the Cali girl in me, but I need to feel like it’s a perfect 78 degrees people!
Oversized Tote – With what they charge for baggage on a plane, I have to make sure that I can fit all the things in my free, allotted personal carry-on item. (I probably look like Mary Poppins with all the stuff I pull out of there sometimes!) I have had this one for years and have worn it more times than I could count, and it’s still holding up strong.
That’s about it for me. I always make sure to have a book, and a few podcasts downloaded – thank goodness Brandon always remembers to pack two sets of headphones. 😉
