And she will always keep your cards close to her heart.

How very coincidental that yesterday the daily Who What Wear newsletter e-mail I subscribe to dedicated their latest with "What They Wear: Airports." Coincidental, you see, because today I'm off! I fly with the dapper husband to San Diego through Sunday!


The trip is purely a vacation to relax away from the New York hubbub, see friends (and their new babies!), as well as get a little time to ourselves before he heads to the Warped Tour. I'm excited for a respite from all the fast-paced fun of New York.

But I digress: I had to size up who I'd be dressed most like this afternoon at the airport. And since I'm already taking my own Panama Hat (guess where I got it a couple of years ago?), travel in my jeans and long-sleeved shirt, it seems I'll be "stylin'" like Emmy Rossum. Though isn't airport "style" just "what am I most comfy in"? The Panama Hat was by sheer coincidence - you can't pack a hat. Unless you have hatboxes; I don't.

I will probably make Jesse take a picture of me at the airport while we're waiting at our gate. You know, evidence and all. Plus, I will be bored. Do you care what you wear to airports? Do you break out your nobody-knows-I-own-this velour track suit? Is it bright pink? Is there something scrawled on the butt of it? Details!

  2. I was just going to pop over and ask what you do with a hat on the plane, but I guess the answer is obvious: you pop it on your head! I might be using this style guide for my upcoming trips... Have a great flight.

  3. HA! I love this. I always wear sandals, yoga pants and a tank top. Then I always bring a hoodie of some sort because I'm ALWAYS cold. I'd say you are a much more stylish airport person though :)

  6. I'm heading for Boston in the morning so I'll be wearing leggings, sandals, and a comfy tee.
    I love your airport style so maybe I'll steal it for my flight back to LA. ;)
    Enjoy your time on the golden coast! :)

  8. That's so funny you're talking about what you wear to airports. I was randomly thinking about that today and decided on a cute new dress from Forever 21 as my next airport gear. I try to be comfy and bring a sweater because I"m always cold! Have an awesome time in SD...it's gorgeous right now!

  9. I dig Emmy Rossum's look! I wish I looked cute in hats. Also, I like dressing casual yet trendy on airplanes. Jeans are a must.

    Have an awesome time in San Diego!

  11. I'm so picky about my airport clothes! I love to look good and classy, but still be comfortable! I have this really loose and big sleeved black knit shirt from Lauren Conrad and a nice pair of "jean leggings" with flat slouch boots. It's comfortable, still looks like a classy outfit, and still makes me feel like I tried to join the human race even though I dislike planes!
