Last week I had to take a quick trip back to Grenada (was just there for Xmas & New Year’s Holiday) to photograph my cousin’s wedding. Being that it was a short trip I tried to pack light including my airport outfit. Its tough going from a cold climate to a tropical island. Plus carrying a heavy coat during a long layover is no fun at all. So I decided that I would dress in layers. First off, I knew I wanted to head straight out for drinks with my friends that were picking me up from the airport. I actually surprised them so I knew it would be a little party! Usually I don’t care what I wear for a flight as long as I am comfy, but this look had to be cute and comfy!
I started off with a lightweight, light colored jean that could also be worn in case of a chilly or rainy night on the island. I then added a super cool graphic sweatshirt , faux shearling vest and wedge booties to finish off the look. Tada! I felt cute enough so I moved on to the important stuff! Not freezing my buns off! The key to that was in the layers! I wore a black fitted off the shoulder cropped shirt as my base top layer. On top of that was a black tank top and a long sleeved black thermal which you can see peeking out in the photos.
Once I hit the airport in Grenada I shed those layers. Luckily I made some friends on the plane and we took turns watching each others luggage on the immigration line as we went to the restroom to change, one by one. By that time I was already sweating and so happy that I didn’t have a big winter coat with me. I will say this plan works best if you have a ride to and from the airport in your cold weather location!
