Airplane OOTDs & What’s in my Travel Bag?

Hey Fashionistas,

Happy Easter!! So guess, where I am right now?? SAN DIEGO!!!

That’s right…San Diego, home to beautiful beaches and where my best friend, practically sister, and former college roommate lives right now. I’m going to be in San Diego for a week visiting my best friend Katelyn, so if you are from here, feel free to suggest some attractions to visit!

Technically not San Deigo yet, but still…reunited with my best friend!

Now, traveling can be quite tiring and by the time you reached your destination, you can kind of look like a train wreck. Trust me.. I’ve been there and it was NOT cute!! So, as a fashionista, I’m going to show you how I dress comfy cute while traveling!

The two most important things to remember when flying is comfort and staying warm (the latter is mainly for me…teehee). I absolutely love flying and going to new places, but one thing I never look forward to is how cold it is on the plane. I absolutely can’t stand the cold so for all flights, I’ll always have tons of layers on.

I am wearing a magenta pink sleeveless blouse under my favorite Boston University half zip-up sweater #GoTerriers! I’m pairing this up with my favorite pair of AE jeans and brown suede boots. And…for extra warmth, my AE trench coat.

Now you’re probably thinking, why am I wearing a sleeveless blouse if I’m always cold on the airplane? Well, San Diego is going to be super warm and I am going to a surprise birthday party once I get off the plane. I gotta make sure i’m dressed to the nines – from planes to parties #LittleMissPopular 😉

My favorite part of my outfit, however, is my Forever 21 baby pink rhinestone baseball cap. Every time I travel, regardless how I travel, I will always wear a cap. It just completes my outfit, ya know??

Now moving to what’s in my bag….

I generally go for a big tote bag when traveling to carry everything – electronics, makeup, snacks, etc. Right now, my bag holds:

Laptop & charger
Kindle
Michael Kors wallet/wristlet
Phone & charger
Boarding pass, tickets, and any other paper documents for travel
2 packs of gum
Makeup bag
Some yummy snacks – all vegetarian because…Lent

….And what’s in my makeup bag?

Maybelline Lipstick – Raw Chocolate
Clinique Quick Eyeliner
Elf Lash Curler
Smith’s Lip Balm
Nivea Hand Cream
Sephora Mirror

When I travel, I stay away from using face products since the air in the airplane can be extremely drying and harsh on the skin. To be honest, I actually wear no makeup other than lip balm and moisturizer to keep my skin and lips hydrated. I also wear my eyeglasses when I travel for max comfort. I will, however, give my lashes a quick curl, put on some lipstick and eyeliner right before I get off the plane, just so I look a little bit more presentable.

Hey Fashionistas,

Ending the week with a little #selfiesundays

….and I also have another surprise for you!! Some of you may not know but I am also very much into fitness. So when I was in Boston, I met up with Cara from The Balanced Bod and Sarah from Fit University. I ended up shooting my very first Zumba dance….which you will have the honor of seeing right now!

*disclaimer: most of the moves I made up myself except for the chorus which I learned straight from the original music video

Make sure to follow me on Instagram @chrissie_boutiquefullblog to see more of my #ootd and #fitlife.

Xoxo,

Christine
