a traveling wilbury

It has always been my goal to be as authentic as possible here on my blog. I don’t want to paint an unrealistic and unattainable picture of myself to anyone, because that’s just not who I am. I try to share as much of me, the good, bad and ugly, as I can. And so here are some of the most authentic blog pictures taken yet, as I am arriving at the airport for an actual flight and taking some quick pics before checking in.

When traveling, I want to be as comfortable as possible while also looking as chic as possible. This usually includes a comfy pair of jeans, a tee, a great jacket, boots and sunglasses. The only thing missing from this picture is a pashmina in case I get cold (I am a notoriously forgetful and always leave things behind, as I did here). Beauty wise, I wear as little makeup as possible (concealer, blush, lip balm) and that NEVER includes mascara. I always picture myself waking up on the plane (I am also a notorious sleeper) and wiping my mascara all over my face. I never do my hair as I find it just looks awful after flights anyways, and I always bring multi-purpose moisturizer.

Do you have any staples when flying?

    Love how you’re so honest on your blog! I can totally see me wearing what you’re wearing on a plane. Last time I took a plane I wore a gingham shirt, a black blazer and light jeans. I was super comfortable!

    Loving the sunnies in this look – you look so chic!

    I love how realistic this is because you’re all covered up. When I travel, I don’t leave any skin exposed because I always seem to get super cold on the plane. Also, that leather jacket is so awesome. Great look!

      I always get SO cold on the plane too! I usually bring a pashmina as well to put over my legs. Thanks for the comment Debbie!!

    I have looked online for the New Icons collection and can’t find it anywhere on the H&M site? I love the jacket on you, and it looks great with every different outfit you’ve worn it with. Can you no longer buy this jacket???

      Hi Breah! Unfortunately I don’t think it’s available in stores anymore. You could try Ebay? Let me know if you have any luck! I highly recommend it!
