How to turn a summer OOTD into a travel outfit!

 Long haul flights are just so bleugh. Undoubtedly you have to get up at some ungodly hour where the last thing you feel like doing is applying a full face of makeup and picking out a cute outfit. Especially when you have to consider to different climates - what's worse: freezing to death on the aeroplane or boiling like a lobster upon arrival? No, all you want to do (aside from sleep of course,) is get to the airport and help yourself to a Venti Caramel Macchiato with an extra shot of coffee.
But unfortunately if we don't put in at least a little effort into our appearance, we'll turn up at the hotel 10 hours later looking like we've misread 'hotel' as 'homeless shelter'. So today I'm going to share some of the things I've learnt over the years to help you look more jetsetter.
Pack a change of clothes in your hand luggage...
I know what you're thinking: 'Lily, how big do you think my bag is?! Hell no am I lagging around an entire outfit change!!' Obviously not, that would be stupid, what I'm saying is instead of wearing the shorts pictured above, choose some black leggings. Upon arrival at your destination, they're easy to roll up and tuck away in the corner of your carry on allowing you to change into a pair of shorts which take up next to no room. Think of it as your gateway past either freezing or boiling!
Over moisturize the morning of your flight...
The air on planes is recycled which means by the time you're a few hours into the flight all the moisture has completely gone... AKA make way for dry patches on your skin, dehydration and lank, dull looking hair. The two main things I would recommend to help combat this are: apply your moisturizer generously. Trust me, your skin will thank you for it! And secondly, don't drink caffeine or alcohol prior to boarding the flight as both will dehydrate you a lot faster. I know, what about my Starbucks, I hear your cry! Decaf my darlings... barely tastes any different!
Pack your valuables in your carry on...
This one is fairly self explanatory. Be it stolen, lost, or sent to the wrong airport, the whole situation would be made a lot worse when you realise you don't have your laptop, camera, or even worse: phone charger... These things usually don't take up too much space and its definitely worth being sure that they're safe.
Okay, so these are just a few tips from me, please share any tips you have for flying or just long journeys with me in the comments below!
