After my last few trips, I have finally settled on a travel uniform and I wear this pretty much every time I get on a plane now. Personally, comfort is my number one priority when I'm flying and I'm nettled by fashion websites trying to make over people in airports wearing yoga pants and putting them into stiff button-ups and tight jeans instead. If flying were glamorous like it once was, I'd understand the demand for snazzy apparel. But air travel these days is just a preview of the fires of hell--endless security lines, being stripped down and having to unpack your whole suitcase and repack it asfastaspossible because of the crush in the security line; a million delays and cancellations; having three layovers so your flight is cheaper; everyone and their mother bringing their crammed-full suitcases as carry-ons--so when I see people in yoga pants and pajamas, I think "smart move, sister." However, I'm not really much for yoga pants in public (except to yoga) so I've come to rely on my fake yoga pants--these gap black pants with a ton of stretch--paired with easy-to-take-on-and-off boots, a super-soft button up, and a big old scarf that doubles as blanket/pillow/personal screen. And of course, a really good book stashed in my bag (right now, this one). And on that note, we're off to spend the holiday with C's family. See you on the flip side!
