Mimi and the Multi-Colour Travelling Cloak


Air travel between different climates can be very challenging wardrobe wise. When I know I will be travelling to a different climate than the one I'm leaving, I put a lot of thought into my outfit. A good travelling outfit must be comfortable, practical and versatile. Seems easy enough, but the really challenging part is still managing to look presentable or even stylish. A great basic to keep in mind is leggings. I hardly ever don't wear leggings while travelling. They allow me to move freely and are not constricting in any way, making sitting for long periods of time bearable. I then opt for layers. In today's look I am wearing a camisole (the lace detailing gives me bonus style points), a 3/4 sleeve t-shirt and a cardigan. These layers are practical and not too bulky. When I take off the cardigan, the layer underneath it still works. Wearing winter boots isn't always the best option. I chose booties with calf-socks for extra warmth without the bulk. Finally, I opted to wear my plaid cape. The cape is warm enough to get you from the car to inside the terminal, while doubling up as a blanket during the flight. The beauty about this one is that it's reversible. I tend to wear the same outfit to and from, seeing as packing two winter outfits would be overkill and that this outfit took so much planning! I figure I will simply wear the cape on the reverse side for the trip back and no one will even notice I'm wearing the same outfit! Tricks of the trade!
