Hope you all had a great Turkey Day!
I'm still recovering and am currently in a food coma. But it was sooooo worth it.

Oh what a lovely Etsy shop I'm introducing to you folks today!
Pure Impressions is an online jewelry store that I have just fallen in love with! The owner, Laura, is such a doll and get this: she hand makes every single piece of jewelry she sells. All her pieces are create one piece at a time, with love, in the heart of Wyoming. All the metals she uses are coated in 2 coats of Renaissance microcrystalline polishing wax, to avoid any unsightly tarnish. She also hand solders all the components on her pieces for durability! Pure Impressions is the queen of personalized jewelry. Also, Laura is a pro when it comes to amazing customer service. She is quick to respond to any questions or emails and loves a great custom challenge. Yes folks, this lady is a genius at custom pieces!

I absolutely love the Silver Airplane Necklace that she made just for me (seen in my pictures above)! I had her engrave the letters "ITO" to represent my hometown airport in Hilo, Hawaii. Now whenever I wear it, it'll remind me that home is where the heart is (see what I did there?). I also have declared this necklace my official traveling accessory. From now on you won't find me flying an airplane without this darling piece of jewelry around my neck.

I also styled my outfit based on my "airplane attire." Normally when I fly I stick to the most comfortable things in my closet. And what's more comfortable than an oversize sweater and leggings? I usually go with footwear that's easy to get on and off for security check (aka no laces), so these zip-up boots from Ariat are perfect. I'm wearing the thick headband simply because it was cold that day and my ears were freezing. ;)

What's your favorite airplane attire?
