Travel Day + Missguided Petites

san francisco airport casual travel outfit

Just a quick post sharing my recent airport outfit...I had a red-eye flight so comfort was key! I already have & love these sleek BP flats in two colors, so when my anti-flats friend Ping was getting rid of hers in black I couldn't resist adopting them. As mentioned in my past reviews, they fit true to size but have almost no cushioning, so I'd suggest going half size up and adding a half insole insert. On an earlier flight I had worn my trusty BP black booties, and black sneakers as shown below would also work well for travel.

This Boohoo (still can't say that with a straight face) piece has been a versatile one throughout my trip and is especially comfy for plane rides. I'm going to continue referring to it a Snuggie wrap since it doesn't have enough construction to constitute a real coat. The same brand also makes a similar-looking style in camel brown, but I'm unsure about how the even lower-priced "suedette" material looks in-person. I mentioned in a recent post that I had also ordered a wrap jacket from Missguided petites (another UK-based brand) in camel to compare. Here are some quick snaps of how that one fit on me...

Compared to the Boohoo wrap, the Misguided one is longer in length like a duster cardigan, and the sleeves run a little longer and wider. The material of the Misguided one feels a little heavier but seems to show wrinkles a tad more (it may also just be the lighter color). The construction of both are very similar, with pockets, unlined material, and exposed stitching right along the outer edges. Material content & measurements comparison of a size UK 4 / US 0 petite:

Boohoo: 14.5" across the shoulders, 21" long sleeves, 4.25" across the sleeve opening at the wrist, approx. 36" total length when measured from the top of shoulders. The rest of the jacket is very free-size due to the open wrap style. 81% poly, 15% viscose, 4% elastane.

Misguided: 14.75" across the shoulders, 22.5" long sleeves, 4.5" across the sleeve opening at the wrist, approx. 40" total length. 92% poly, 8% spandex.

I've already machine-washed the Boohoo piece in the gentle cycle and it came out with no issues. I hung it on a hanger to dry instead of in the machine, to avoid any pre-mature pilling of the material.

On the plane I had a nice time cozy in my Snuggie, chatting up my neighbor about all the best eats in Boston & SF. To my confusion, people kept stopping by the aisle gushing that they were a fan of his. I casually mentioned this to Nick later, who replied with a facepalm then informed me the guy is a well-known Red Sox player. Of course he gets seated by the one sports-clueless girl on the Boston flight, but I hope he enjoyed getting to chat about ramen instead of baseball for a change : )

  3. Hi Jean,

    You are in SF! If you get chance, you HAVE to try the ice cream with olive oil dessert at either Zero Zero or Beretta. A must!!

  14. If it makes you feel any better, I would call myself a sports fan & I fear that I won't recognize an athlete if I saw them in public :) I'm glad you're getting a lot of wear out of your "Snuggie" though!

  18. Jean, is your boohoo wrap in mocha or camel? I only see the mocha on the US Boohoo site. Thanks!

  19. I usually just wear sweat pants. This look is definitely more chic, I'll have to try it on my upcoming long flight this weekend to London!

  20. The misguided coat looks so bulky when tied up, how does the Boohoo jacket look when tied? Have you heard of the UK brand All Saints? They deliver via Amazon to the US, and have a LA store. Anyhow waterfall collars are their thing, they don't have petite sizing though, but good quality. I also saw several options at Aritzia before I buying a waterfall trench from Club Monaco, I'll get the sleeves shortened as they don't have petite either.

  22. Bahahaha! That's totally something I would do, too! I'm clueless when it comes to sports. I agree - he probably enjoyed visiting with someone who was able to talk about something other than him & baseball. I'm currently shopping your look now! LOVE your blog for petites!

  23. Love this outfit! I'm planning a trip to Europe in May, and this just might become my travel outfit. :) Thanks for the style tips as well as the great review!

  24. When tied at the waist, the grey BooHoo wrap seems to look more flattering when going out, than the Misguided Waterfall coat, although both look cozy.

    Loved hearing your story at the end of this post. It's a shame he didn't offer to autograph your Snuggie or something!

  25. Really love the style of the MisGuided coat. Been eyeing for awhile but wasn't sure how it'd look on me... thanks for posting pics of both! And cute story about your plan ride! LOL I can totally see that as part of the plot of a romantic comedy.

  26. Hi Jean! Seeing you in a more casual outfit made me wonder about some basics- like your favorite plain white tees (long sleeve and short)? This is a constant struggle for me because a lot of the more up market brands that offer tees are usually pretty big/long, but my affordable J Crew/Ann Taylor tees seem to fall apart quickly! A post on your favorite basic tees would be awesome!

    1. I like Everlane for their basic tees. I purchased the V neck, the U neck in size XS and they have held up nicely. No shrinking or fading. But I always machine wash cold. I don't have as much luck with their silk button downs, the shoulders don't fit right on me. Haven't tried their sweaters, so can't comment on those.

  27. Love your fashion sense, and you look ravishing in everything you wear including flats and your assortment of jewelries
