Jet-setting with Kids: How to Survive an Airplane Ride in Style

You're a busy working mum, always on the go, juggling your career, social life, and the endless demands of parenting. You want to look stylish wherever you go, but let's face it - time is not always on your side. And now, you have an upcoming flight with your little one in tow. Don't panic! We've got you covered. In this blog post, we'll share some sassy yet practical tips on how to survive an airplane ride with kids under 5 while still maintaining that upper-class style.

1. Pack Smart and Travel Light:
Let's be real – overpacking is our guilty pleasure (and downfall). But when traveling with kids, it's essential to keep things streamlined. Opt for versatile clothing pieces that can easily mix and match for different occasions. Our After Story bags are designed with sustainability in mind - they effortlessly convert into various styles so you can pack less without compromising on fashion.

2. Stay Organized Like a Pro:
We know staying organized may not come naturally to everyone (*raises hand*), but hey, we all strive for improvement! Invest in some handy travel organizers or packing cubes to keep everything neatly separated and easily accessible during the flight. With a well-organized bag at your side (or should we say After Story?), finding essentials like snacks or toys will be a breeze!

3. Entertainment Galore:
As much as we love our little ones' adorable giggles and smiles, keeping them entertained during long flights can be quite challenging – especially when their attention span resembles that of a goldfish! Load up your tablet or smartphone with their favorite shows or educational apps beforehand so they stay engaged throughout the journey.

4. Snack Attack Strategy:
Hungry kids are never fun...for anyone involved! Avoid mid-flight meltdowns by packing a variety of snacks that are both healthy and enjoyable. Think bite-sized fruits, trail mix, or puree pouches - these treats will keep hunger at bay while satisfying your little one's taste buds.

5. Dress for Comfort (Without Sacrificing Style):
Who says comfort and style can't coexist? Choose clothing options made from soft, breathable materials that allow freedom of movement for your child. As for you, opt for chic yet comfortable attire – think stretchy jeans paired with a flowy blouse or a stylish jumpsuit that screams effortless elegance. With the right outfit choices, you'll be ready to take on the world (or at least the airplane cabin) in style!

Surviving an airplane ride with kids under 5 doesn't have to mean sacrificing your sense of style or sanity! By packing smart, staying organized, keeping them entertained and well-fed, all while looking fabulous in our versatile After Story bags - you'll conquer those flights like a true jet-setting fashionista. So go ahead and embrace your inner travel enthusiast without hesitation because we've got your back...and your bag!
