SO....that said, each time I fly, I’ll pay homage to the chicest B on the flight and examine how we can all learn from her.
This morning I was on a 6am flight from L.A. to Atlanta, so I have to say I did not have high expectations for this group of people.
But about 1/2 way through the flight, this super-cute fashionista saunters up the aisle past me, and I kicked myself for completely shutting off my iPhone rather than choosing airplane mode so I could take a pic.
She had a cute, peachy-pink romper with the bottom so flared I mistook it for a skirt at first. It buttoned up the front in a prim-but-fashionable sort of way, and she wore a black long-sleeved cardigan over it (dressing for travel is all about layers). She had simple little black flats, and hair pulled back neatly in a ponytail. I LOVED the classic pink and black combo. She was like a cute little blond Audrey Hepburn. Simple. Comfortable. And cute! It is possible to travel stylishly! Thank you, little blonde Audrey, for imparting your wisdom to us.
Take note darlings: you don’t have to wear sweats on an airplane to be comfortable, or worse, pajamas. Pajamas in public are just not okay.
Also, as a side note, the one positive about that annoying take-your-shoes-off-at-security rule is that it has significantly reduced the number of people wearing their sneakers to the airport. I know you walk a lot, but it’s not a HIKE. You’ll be fine in cute flats, I promise.
