How to Survive a Long Flight














Hi Beauties! I'm checking in from my little Mexico getaway with the hubby. It took 3 planes and 11 hours to get here but it was definitely worth it!

Today I want to share a few tips on how to survive a long flight or multiple layovers. Hopefully this can help you feel comfortable, relaxed and rested during those long flight hours.

1. Comfort is Key: Wear comfortable clothing and easy to remove shoes. I like to wear an outfit with layers so I can adjust accordingly. Think of the plane as a movie theatre - always so cold! It can also be handy to bring a face mask to try and get some shut eye on the flight.

2. Pack Portable Entertainment: Reading material, a good music playlist (don't forget your headphones) or a lap top/ iPad with your favourite movies are all easy ways to help pass the time.

3. Bring Essential Toiletries: There is nothing I hate more than waking up on a flight and not being able to brush my teeth. I usually pack a few essential toiletries such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, contacts case, glasses and makeup remover (or I just don't wear makeup). This is especially important for red eye flights.

Today I wore something super easy and casual for a day at the beach. I paired my 'Mermaid Off Duty' tank with some cut-off jean shorts and the comfiest pair of sandals I could find. I also threw on a hat to protect my face because holy crap, the sun here is fierce!

What do you do to survive long flights? What is your favourite go-to outfit when visiting the beach?

O U T F I T  D E T A I L S:
1. Tank: c/o Population Now
2. Shorts: Levi's c/o Mad Monkey Style
3. Sandals: c/o Sanuk similar
4. Bralette: Victoria's Secret
5. Hat: The Latest Scoop similar
6. Shades: Ray Ban

  1. Yes comfort and layers are so important for travelling - I find planes are always so cold, no matter where you're flying from or to!

    I like your casual beach outfit too, really nice :)

  8. First, I love your shoes! They look so chic! And love the tips you listed for a long flight! I always need a bottle of water and some chewing gums in a fresh flavor! And I also always bring an oversized scarf as it's both chic and adds the comfy! Xx

  9. A great list of essentials. I always make sure I have a good book and a scarf which I can use as an extra blanket.

    Enjoy your time in Mexico.

  17. I remember on my last long flight my headphones were a life saver, I got through a lot of television! And my earpods and eyemask were great to have around, honestly I wouldn't have slept without them as they didn't turn the lights off at night!

  35. Hi beauty,

    This post comes at a perfect time!
    The hubby and I are preparing for a loooooong flight from Amsterdam to Indonesia next month.
    I am already shopping the last summer sales for some denim cut offs and cute tees because in my opinion this is the perfect uniform on a sunny beach.
    I think I am going to stock up like a crazy person lol

    Great travel tips and as always you look stunning even when dressed casual and effortless;)

    Kisses xx

  37. Great tips! I use all of these to survive flights. I especially bring extra items to keep me warm. Planes are so cold, and it's the most miserable thing being freezing on a 10 hour flight. Have fun in Mexico Rina! So excited you are finally there. I know we've been talking about it for a while haha. Yay! Lots of photos please. :)

  40. Great tips! I usually wear a skirt or trousers with an elasticated waist for comfort (and I have a belt for when I get on and off the plane so I don't look too awful!) and a cashmere cardi for the cold!
    I love your beach outfit - great shorts!
    Have fun in Mexico!

  43. Earlier this year we flew back to Malaysia to spend some time with my family and it was 25 hours in total with layovers. It was so exhausting and we were travelling with a two year old. Entertainment and snacks were our priorities and thankfully the little slept most of the way.
