Travel Attire

Rebecca Dale Photography

27 hours of traveling later and I made it to Africa!  My journey was a long one, but I survived by dressing comfortably and staying hydrated.  I wanted to share my go-to travel outfit with you as well as a few tips/tricks I’ve learned over the years.  My year round travel outfit consists of an oversized sweater, skinny jeans, light jacket, scarf, hat, and booties.  I always get cold on planes so I like having multiple layers that can easily be taken on or off.  To avoid getting dry and swollen, I drinks tons of water, cut out salty food, and moisturize my entire body right before I leave – this is something I recently started doing and it makes such a difference.  I use Lubriderm on my body and Restorsea eye and day cream on my face.  Before and after a flight, I spritz Evian mineral water or Susan Ciminelli seawater on my face which helps me feel refreshed and awake.  It’s little things like this that make flying so much more enjoyable.  I hope you had a great weekend!

    I learned the moisturizing trick a little bit ago as well and it seriously makes a world of a difference! Love the look, for travel days or not!

    Beautiful travel outfit. Like you, I love layering on a plane to adjust my own temperature. This scarf is a great blackout pop. Have a great time in Africa. Looking forward to your travel photos!

    I feel cold during flight too, but it’s annoying if the destination place is in hot weather. I guess having layers is truly the answer!

    A great look! I usually stick to leggings because I don’t have to worry about stretching out the knee fabric. I also wear a tank top and then a sweater, and always always have a huge sweater that can be easily used as a pillow or extra wrap if needed!

    Safe journey!!
