Airport chic… you decide…



Today I am getting a little over excited, so much so, I nearly peed my pants.

You see very soon, I will be jetting off on my holidays! yipeeeeee, sun, sea and sand in um... windy Lanzarote.

My mind is starting to wander to the packing. Eugh. I hate packing. I can't pack too early as I tend to get a bit OCD'ish about it and I'll unpack and pack so many times just to check I really did include enough pairs of knickers, even though I know full well I have.

Anyhow, I need your help pretty please, cos you are all so brilliant and know stuff, what should I wear to the airport? Option A or option B (click to enlarge the image). I will wear the most voted for outfit. (I'll even take a picture of me in it, running on the luggage belt - actually no I won't, it is soooooo annoying when that breaks down, I think I'd be booed when I board the plane and boy do I hate being booed boarding planes).

Both options would have a denim jacket accompaniment. Well, it will be like 2° in the UK when we leave and 38° in Lanzarote when we land.

*Or feel free to show me an Option C, and I'll see if I can match it from my wardrobe.

My vote is option B, only because I couldn't wear a shorter dress on an airplane. I personally would opt for a jersey maxi dress with a scarf, long necklaces, flats, and your jean jacket.

Struggler said...

I'm voting for B too, only because I never fly in a skirt. Don't ask me why; I don't really worry about accidents...

...But in the unlikely event you do need to make your exit down the emergency chute, do you really want CNN broadcasting pictures of you with your skirt billowing over your head? :)

Well... you forgot things to take car of emergency peeing the pants, but other than that- two cute outfits! I would go with B because the varied layering for temp change options and I love the jaguar print tee.
Can't wait to see the airport pics, cute idea!

Sher said...

I vote for B! Pack the sundress and wear it where people will actually notice you. Airports, people are in such a hurry or exasperated mood they won't appreciate your pretty dress.

Kerri said...

My vote is for option A! Its such a cute dress, and I think that it would be more comfortable on the plane.

i think option B may be more practical for the plane,lucky you ,you will soon be sitting by the pool in sunny Lanzerote.Have fun!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-option B I think, very casual chic and comfy!! Yaay for holidays!! Where is your tee from, I really love it!!

Nic said...

I would pick option 'A' because it looks more comfortable and you when arrive in Lanzarote you won't be too hot.

my shoes there mum?
i dont think A will happen!

Mary said...

As gorgeous as they both are, I'm voting for B! Very chic, but still comfy enough for a plane ride :)

eednic said...

i vote option B, primarily due to comfort and also having to remove shoes when going through security checkpoints. maybe you don't have to do that where you live, but we do. i never wear a complicated shoe or a shoe that must somehow be manipulated to the airport.

Nicola said...

They are both lovely, but save A for the holiday and go with B I think! Have a great holiday! x

Kb said...

Maybe you can wear B on the plane, then change into A once you get there? I think A is a bit eager, and B is more laid back airport chic. If you had a longer top, you could whip the leggings off when u arrive. Dunno if this helps you at all.

Deffo option B, looks the most comfortable and versatile.

Melissa~ said...

My vote goes for option B.
Looks more apropiate for an airport.

Winnie said...

Definitely B, the leggings will be super comfy on the flight!

Shopaholic said...

Anyone else for A? no... um nope, think B has it with a landslide. I'm not going for days so still a bit of time for "A" votes? x

Shopaholic said...

Sharon, I think the T was from New Look, but check out Matalan, they have very similar one with zebras on for £4 in the sale!

If I weren't barred from Matalan, I would be down there gettin it! x

Duchess of Tea said...

I'd say Option B - it so much more practical and yet stylish at the same time.

janettaylor said...

I choose B! Yummy shoes darling!

HoneyBunny said...

Option B is best for an airport:)
Lucky you! Wish I could go for my holidays;D
P.S. I loove packing;D

DaisyChain said...

both are great choices, I'd go for B though!

grumpyoldwoman said...

It has to be B. Planes can be chilly. But a better reason is that I wore a cotton skirt on a 9 1/2 hour flight back from Cuba and it rucked up and stuck to my thighs and creased and generally drove me mad. Have a good time - and I am not jealous - much..

STARR said...

B. It looks way more comfortable and I really like the shirt. Maybe with a different hat though :)

I'm with the majority and say the second option. I am usually that person on a plane who is wrapped in a blanket due to the AC. The second option is chic, yet comfy. The first option would be lovely for the daytime. Hope you have lots of fun on your vacay!

Londyn said...

Love your blog!

I vote Option B. It looks more comfy and travel appropriate. When you arrive, then you can change into Option A! :)

Kari said...

Hope you have a fun trip!

I get cold easily & find that airplanes and airports can be over-air conditioned, so I would choose option B so my legs would be covered, but I could remove layers if it got warm.
