Dress for success
So, as I wrote about recently I have been traveling and unable/or too tired to blog anything out. Also after dinner and drinks and after dinner drinks I don't think too many people would want to read my mixed up thoughts...Including me the next day!
I was taking a plane the other day and it made me remember something my pop said a long time ago "always wear at least a blazer on a plane; you will be treated the way you expect." So I do. Even if I'm stuck in the middle seat in economy class I'm either wearing my suit or blazer to the plane (of course we remove the jacket while we sit; otherwise it gets wrinkled, etc).
The other day While I was getting my boarding pass checked I looked around and started to actually think about what people wear on planes (I know we could talk about how bad people dress all the time, today let's just focus on planes/airports). I saw too many sweat pants/shirts, is there a gym on the plane that nobody told me about? What about those Fanny packs? Here is a hint people THEY NEVER LOOK GOOD! I'm not trying to just bitch about other people, I spied a bunch of guys in jeans and tee shirts or some other type of shirt; honestly it looked fine. Just because I was wearing a suit I do not expect everyone to wear one. However, please look in the mirror BEFORE you leave the house.
I know the response that everyone is going to say; "I want to be comfortable for the long flight". I agree, bring a good book or take a quick nap but you are still in public you should not be wearing slippers in the airport (yes I did see it last week). My flight kind of looked like it was filled with extras from one who flew over the coo koo's nest. I truly believe most American must be colour blind too.. Orange, red and purple (nice outfit).
