The Perfect In-flight Outfit

I am planning a trip to Italy later this year (less than three months, yay!) and besides stressing about my dry skin, I’ve been imagining the perfect in-flight outfit. I walked into Woolworths just after work now and realised how evil they truly are. I saw everything I want and there is just no way my budget will allow it all. I thought I’d share it with you guys as it is the best I can do!

We’ll have a long flight, spending almost 20 hours in transit and arrive early morning in Rome, meaning there will be minimal clothing changes between my flight and the first day of sight-seeing. So everything has to be comfortable, stylish and still look decent after spending 24 hours in it.

I want to trade in my regular jeans for comfortable, yet stylish silk sweatpants and a bright, ‘beautifying’ coloured top that will keep me warm. For our stop over in Abu Dhabi I will wear a plain white T. Black suede flats are  a necessity as well as big sunglasses and a decent travel wallet. Because I am a bit of an earring addict I think a minimalistic pair of studs will add a little polish to this comfortable outfit.

I hope you like this as much as I do and that it will help you solve your travel dilemmas too!

Bedroom update


I promised to keep you up to date with my bedroom developments so here goes.

My headboard got delivered this weekend and was promptly hung by my boyfriend (for which I am very thankfull). I don’t think I’d ever have the urge to drill a hole in a wall!
I managed to find these amazing pillows sooner than I had imagined I would. The monochrome ones are from Woolies and I was very lucky to find the gold one, which I have been eyeing for a while, on sale at Country Road.

Next up would be replacing my nightstand, which might take a while. I also have to figure out what I am going to do for lighting. The silver & off-white lamp is clearly out of place. Do you have any suggestions?
