Hello, my internet friends – the time has come for us to catch yet another flight. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may remember my 17 Airport Outfit Ideas post. Well, consider this the 2019 version.
First of all, let me just say a big thank you to our Lord and saviour, budget airline Tigerair. You get a bad rap over here in Australia, but you’re cheap, you’ve never delayed any of my flights and you allowed me to get the fuck out of Brisbane. Twice. For that, I am eternally grateful.
As you can probably guess by this point, I am no longer in Brisbane – I’ve actually moved back to my home-away-from-home Melbourne! Am I ridiculously excited? You bet your bottom dollar. I’m back to my boyfriend, my friends, all the fun bars and places I love. It’s great, your girl’s excited. (Also, Priya’s here and that’s a real selling point.)
Anyways, as I did in fact promise you an airport outfit, here’s what I wore to make my much anticipated return. (Look, I’ve been living in Melbourne long enough that the hipster is really starting to make its way to my wardrobe – let me live.)
I know some of you (namely my British followers) may be looking with this outfit with confusion. After all, it’s June – summertime! Yeah, no, not in Australia. Whoever made the phrase “chasing the sun” obviously did not live in Melbourne. I had to buy a massive coat (no, not jacket, not a hoodie; a full on coat) and I was still freezing when I went to visit a few weeks ago.
So let’s talk about this baby. If you guys are familiar with my go-to winter styles, you’ll already know how much I adore faux fur. It’s looks luxurious, it feels like you’re being hugged by a duvet and it pairs well with pretty much anything. All big wins in my book.
Now, I confess, I wasn’t actually on the hunt for this jacket. Like I mentioned a minute ago, I’ve just bought a bloody massive winter coat – I’d like to think that one would be enough in Australia, despite all evidence to the contrary. However, when my friend Raven and I went shopping, it just jumped out at me. Then, as if I wasn’t convinced enough, when I got the register it turns out it was on a 50% off sale!
(I mean, yes, you could make the argument that I was already going to buy it regardless. But I like to think of it as a sign.) Anyways, it’s super cute and I’m pretty much living in it. If you’d like to get the look, here’s an online alternative!
So, yes: cosy jackets are once again a win. Let’s talk about the next bad boy in this outfit’s lineup: the tee.
I think at this point we’re all well aware of how much I adore a good graphic tee. There’s one for every mood and every style you could possibly want to dress for – plus, they’re cute. (If you love graphic tees as much as I do, make sure you haven’t missed my post on the 8 best online stores for graphic tees.)
This Wrangler t-shirt is apparently not available online anywhere, so here’s an alternative.
We also have some leather look trousers to finish the look because there just wasn’t enough grunge already. These are actually from H&M and they were super cheap, but they fit almost obscenely well and are crazy comfortable. Which we is all we really want.
Well, my loves, I feel like that’s probably the natural conclusion to this post. If you do enjoy my airport outfit inspiration, feel free to have a watch of my 17 airport outfit ideas video and weep at how preciously tanned I once was.
