A seven nation army couldn't hold me back


Believe it or not, this is my 'comfortable plane wear'. I'll be the first to admit that this is the first time I've been this creative; my trusty TOPSHOP MOTO Baxter jeans have served me well on many an occasion. However, years of observing stylish women boarding planes meant I just had to up my game. No slouchy jumpers or cosy leggings for me, I was going to be the best dressed passenger on my Ryanair flight (cue 'that's not terribly difficult' jokes here'). 

Being on the visually impaired scale myself I find staring at this print at a distance in the mirror feels like an optical illusion, I feel myself going a little cross eyed. I am still fervently in love with the print regardless. They are incredibly comfortable too; they're clearly elastine based because they stretch so well. I can sit cross legged in these, and that is a number one priority on a three hour flight.

The trousers are so slim legged that pairing it with an ordinary cotton tank top (or tops of that variety) meant I felt like I was in a full body suit. I felt like a jazzy cat woman. When I found this swing vest my problems were solved. It's not just a perfect partner for these trousers but a gorgeous piece in itself. It's a perfect alternative to many of the camis on the market if you have a more 'full' figure up top. The deep v shape will compliment your assets as opposed to allowing them to make you look like a qualified mama whale. The deeper v detail on the back is also a bonus, because there's always something wonderful about a low back.

I'll have to admit that after two hours on the flight my feet got a bit chilly and I did have to resort to wrapping my cardigan around my feet, but apart from that my flight attire had never looked so good. That was until I was queuing behind a family at passport control. Their daughter's Disney princess rucksack seemed just that bit more fabulous than my carry on. I had been outdone by a toddler, and she looked at me like she knew it too.
