Great for the plane ride. You can take your scarf off and wrap it around you when it's cold. Big bag to hold your magzines, books, snack, ipod, etc. Sandals for easy slip off at airport security. PLUS way more stylish than pjs at the airport.
Trick to this look: Printed short with a high-quality t-shirt, neutral colors, classic heel, bag adds interest without distracting in bright color. (I just love the back and hat and that the shoes have an ankle strap.) Maybe for holiday, printed shorts
