The airport dilemma.

I don't know about you, but I have a hard time getting dressed for the airport. It's so hard to dress comfortably and stylishly at the same time. It's been niggling at me for days now to try to figure out what I need to start wearing. Here's what I've come up with.

I usually wear an old band t-shirt and a hoody, with sneakers to the airport. And I always feel self conscious because I look like a boy. I hate airports, they're so stressful. And the last thing you need is an uncomfortable outfit adding to that. So, a pair of loose, khaki trousers that won't wrinkle too easily (not that I've tested the Stella ones or anything) and a comfy tank are a recipe for success.
A blazer is one of the most comfortable jackets going. Maybe not this particular one, considering it probably weighs quite a lot, but most people don't own a Givenchy blazer.
Shoes are always the worst part. People always suggest sandals, but in Ireland it's only really ever warm enough for them around May. And I always have to go to the airport at about 6, so you're not going to be comfortable braving the irish coldness in a pair of gladiators. So, these Doc Marten-ish boots are pretty perfect.
And of course, a big bag for carrying extra layers of clothes, different shoes if needed and all those other airport neccesities.

I find planes are always freezing so too cold for sandels, as over as they are uggs are perfect, leggings are the best too! I like clothes that feel like pajamas on the plane ;)
