Free Wi-Fi on a Long Plane Ride is Awesome

As I’m sitting on a six-hour fight from JFK to LAX, I can’t get over the fact that I can use the internet on the plane for free!  Three things I love about flying with Virgin: free wi-fi, reasonable prices, and 70 (not 50!) pound weight limit!

Here’s an outfit that I wore a while ago but forgot to post.  Cardigan + dress + tights + boots is pretty much my go-to outfit these days because it is so easy to throw together.  Also, everytime I wear these booties I love them more and more and I’ve decided they are perfect for day and night.

cardigan and tights- forever 21, dress- American Eagle, boots- Target

As I was packing for this trip, I was thinking a lot about what I wear when I’m at home.  A few of you guys have asked where I’m from- the answer is Bakersfield, CA.  Now Bakersfield isn’t a tiny city (more than 300,000 people), but it is certainly not the fashion capital of anything.  When I go home, I feel that I sort of tone down my outfits.  There are outfits that I wear at school that I definitely wouldn’t wear at home and when I try to come up with a reason why this is the case, I can’t think of a good one.  I don’t know, maybe I feel that people will think I’m trying too hard if I want to try something new or creative with my style.  Then, as I thought some more about it, I’ve decided that it doesn’t matter.  I should feel comfortable wearing whatever outfit I want to wear, wherever I am, so this is what I’m going to try to do while I’m home.  Hopefully, I’ll begin to feel a lot less self-conscious.  Do you guys ever feel that you have to dress a certain way when you’re in a certain place?

Thank you guys so much for putting me over 50 followers!  I’m going to spend the weekend responding to all of your lovely comments and when you tune in again on Monday, you’ll get to experience all those exciting things that I’ve been mentioning!  Three hints: “I whip my hair back and forth!,” sleeker and chicer (that’s probably not a word), and bows.   Interpret as you will ;)

    haha gotta love the willow smith reference.. can't wait to see what you have to say about her! i was obSESSED with that sing for awhile, but not i like it to a normal degree (:

    and i agree! wear whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you want. the sweater/dress/boots/tights is definitely an easy go to outfit, and i like the color scheme in this one!

    My town is even smaller than yours (about 90,000 people), and I never tone down my clothes! About the only thing I might change is my shoes…I don't go shopping in heels anymore. I used to, but it just wasn't worth it!

    I'm totally loving your dress, by the way.

    Have a great weekend, and have a safe trip!

    Love this floral dress with those cute booties.
    That has to be a great thing about Virgin – free wifi, I have yet to go on a plane where I can use the internet!
    Thanks for your sweet comment.
