Sufficed to say, I love to travel, and when I do, I like to do it well, but with the goal of eliminating all the unnecessary extras. So with a handful of exciting and dream-coming-true trips planned this year, my mind has been on traveling and how to do so in style – specifically how to fly in style guarantee a pleasured filled experience from take-off to landing.
The day before your trip, double check the time of departure, calculate how long it will take to get to the airport and how you will get there. Be sure to have the necessary documents (ID’s, Passport, tickets, etc) and necessary cash or traveler’s checks ready to go.
Stylish, Yet Comfortable Attire
Always travel in style, as you will be treated in the manner you present yourself. If you’re feeling like Charlize Theron, put ballet flats in your carry-on tote and wear stilettos through the terminal, slipping on your flats when you’re on board. Dress in layers – a tank, camisole or short-sleeve fine fabric blouse, followed by a cardigan, blazer or leather jacket. Throw in a large scarf that can serve as a blanket or warmth around your neck if it’s chilly outside. And jersey wrap dresses or comfortable, yet well-tailored jeans are always a good fashion decision. Click here for a detailed list of the perfect travel wardrobe.
Functionable Carry-On Packed with Essentials
Recently I began traveling with a hard shell suitcase with 360 degree wheels. It makes it effortless to travel between gates and protects what you’ve packed from being smashed. As far as what I pack inside my carry on and tote: reading material (magazines, books, iPad), medications, necessary toiletries (toothpaste, feminine items, contacts & solution, etc), laptop, smart phone, one outfit, jewelry and basic make-up.
How to Look Fresh on Arrival
While flying, be sure to hydrate by drinking water when asked what beverage you’d prefer. Just before touching down, take a trip to the restroom, spritz your face with water, massage a luxurious facial moisturizer onto your face (preferably tinted to save time), touch up your make-up simply with concealer, blush, no smudge mascara and a neutral lip. With your over-sized sunglasses in hand, swiftly put on your blazer, cardigan or jacket and you will look fabulous.
