My Short Haul Plane Outfit

I went heavy at Nando’s and am currently typing this from my plane seat with my top button of my jeans undone because lol got a belly full of chips, chicken and Diet Coke.

I’m sitting next to the plane toilet which is jolly hoot because not only can everyone see said flies undone (HI EVERYONE ELSE GOING TO MALAGA) but also because I keep catching some really handsome whiffs in the air. So that’s nice.

I’m hoping to flag down an air stewardess for a bottle of water and a new tube of Benefit’s Rollerlash before we land in about 90 minutes.

So, in the scheme of being reactive and getting lots of little posts out for you internet boos, I thought I’d throw together a quick short haul airport outfit post for ya. In case you’re swanning off to a Mediterranean beach anytime soon and are like HOW DO I LOOK SEMI CUTE WHILST STUFFED INTO A PLANE CHAIR.

So yeah, these snaps were shot just outside gate 35 at Gatwick’s South Terminal by my travel pal for the weekend, Ellie.

We’ve been together for about four hours and have already discussed sanitary towels, bloggers who buy Insta followers and well, what to wear for dinner tonight because hashtag two little basic bitches in a pod.

Anyway, this outfit and those undone jeans.

It’s rare that I’ll wear denim to travel in, but considering this is such a short flight (two hours, twenty minutes to be precise) and it’s that awkward temperature in the UK where I can’t get away with bare legs, I thought FUCK IT LET’S GO CRAZY.

These are my new Mom jeans from Topshop and I like them, I like that my bum crack isn’t trying to snake its way out and I like the way the petite length sit just above my ankle.

So I recommend them if like me, your legs are stumpier than a sausage dog and you are just so bloomin’ over your jeans rolling down and HI UNDERWEAR, like mate, I’m not in year 10 anymore, it’s not hip and happening for my thong waist band to be on show.

Admittedly I stuck to the classics for the rest of my outfit – a loose t-shirt from H&M that used to belong to Chris but ahem, now sits firmly in my t-shirt drawer, a pair of trainers and a good ol’ biker jacket.

I toyed with bare toes but mate, that plane air con can be brutal and I don’t have to take these Adidas baes off to get through security. Which is always an added bonus.

And then I added in a neckerchief because duh, it’s me and don’t you wish these had been cool in the noughties so we could have hidden our hickies? That would have saved so many disapproving looks like why you letting boys suck your neck.

Oh and a bag. Like, the biggest bag (from Armani Exchange) I could find so that I could cram in this laptop and three different snacks from Pret.

And that’s me.

And on that note, I think it might be time to brave the toilet because those three Diet Coke refills from Nando’s are pressing into my organs.






  • The petite length on topshop jeans is just perfect! I need to get my hands on some more. This is now basically gonna be my outfit for flying to Italy next month, all about that comfort


  • Amy

    I don’t understand how you’ve managed to make outfit pictures in an airport look so classy! Especially the top one, it looks like it’s straight out of a magazine photoshoot haha. So glad you like the mom jeans they’re just great aren’t they!
    Amy xx

    • Haha literally to the right was about 50 drunk men off on a golfing holiday. We just found an empty gate waiting area 😂

  • I never travel in jeans either! But you may have just changed my mind… 🙂

    Have fun, and travel safely! Xxxxx

    • I would 100% never do it for anything longer than about two hours because I’m all about that jogger slouchy life. But it was nice to feel slightly civilised at the airport! x

  • Perfect travel outfit and I really love the bag. Enjoy Spain! I really want Nandos now haha x

  • These jeans look fab on you. I need them. Seriously. Enjoy Spain lil cutiessss xxxx

  • Love the sneakers, such a cute print x

  • Very cute. The red really suits you and totally pops!

  • I am going to Majorca in 3 weeks with my bestie and have been debating what to wear on the flight, this post gave me some inspiration! Thank you and you look fab as always! x

    • I had a little scout out on Pinterest before I went because I wanted to be comfy but not y’know, look like a bag lady 😂 x

  • Only you could pull off looking this chic in the bloody airport! Have a fabulous time x

  • I love love love your bag and the neckerchief is fab, I need to bring more of these into my life ASAP.

    • Me too, I’m wondering how many would be acceptable to buy 🙈

  • You are one SASSY lady! I love this look, not sure I’d suit mum jeans half as much but they do look comfy and pretty damn cool! Alice xx

  • You look fantastic – I love that outfit and I think jeans are a good choice for a short haul flight.

    And, just to go off on one about why you are my fav lifestyle blogger … THIS is the kind of outfit post that I wish more bloggers did … not 5 inch heels, a tutu and a designer handbag that cost 8 grand worn just for prancing around on other people’s Instagram-able doorsteps. I want ideas for what to wear to the airport, to Tesco to do a massive shop and then drop by my mate’s baby shower, to work when I need to look professional but have a spin class at lunchtime and date-night after work. Y’know, REAL LIFE STUFF!
    I don’t need to know how amazing people can look in a designer outfit with professionally applied makeup and a salon blow dry because I CAN JUST PICK UP VOGUE to see that! But how to look like my own better dressed, better looking twin sister in situations when I might run into an old boyfriend or new boss … yes please.

    Phew! Rant over. Have a great holiday Hannah! 🙂

    • Awww this was so lovely – thank you! I’d love to do more casual day-to-day outfit stuff, so I think that warrants me doing a big ASOS order, right, right RIGHT?

      But I know what you mean, I feel like it’s so hard to get off-duty outfits right – you want to be comfy and it be easy and cheap but then also full of sass at the same time! x

  • Bee

    You lil cutie pie! I love the neckerchief, girl I gots to get me one of those!
    Bee |

  • Cute outfit! I might have to give those mom jeans a go because mt Asos pair do absolutely nothing for my erm..’gunt’ as you would call it haha! 🙂 xx

  • I loooove the addition of the neckerchief, so cute x

  • nueyork

    This is such a cute and cosy outfit!

  • You look lovely Hannah! Definitely diggin’ the neckerchief. Have fun in Malaga! Immy x

  • Fab outfit! I wish I could pull off a neck tie but I just look like a flight attendant, not a good look.
