Happy Thursday Dolls!
I am currently on vacation in Miami and hopefully as you are reading this I am catching some vitamin D and sipping on something frosty.
I absolutely love to get dressed and look polished, but sometimes I need to be comfortable.
There are two occasions when I absolutely need to be comfy, the first is when I shop. I love to marathon shop, so I need to be as comfy as possible, sensible shoes are a must. Often times even when I dress appropriately for a shopping excursion, my feet still hurt at the end of the day.
The second occasion is when I travel. I don't love to fly and aside from the usual worries and fears most people have about flying, I feel claustrophobic and hate that I can't move around much. If I am going to be strapped in for a long period of time, I have to be wearing clothes where I do not feel restricted. As you know a few weeks back people got removed from a United flight for wearing leggings. Granted they were traveling under an employee travel pass that includes a dress code, but they were just teens trying to travel in comfort.
Comfort Travel Tips:
1. Wear something you can move in
I find leggings, a cotton maxi dress, skirt or jumpsuit to be the most comfortable to travel. Comfy and non restricting.
2. Easily removable shoes
Flip flops (if you are traveling someplace warm), slip on sneakers, or Uggs. Maybe not the most fashionable, but for sure the easiest to slip on and off in the security line.
It is a must to wear layers on a plane. You never know if it is going to be warm or cool, or perhaps the passenger next to you loves the above air blower, you should always be prepared.
and finally my favorite travel tip...
4. The neck pillow
I am not sure when the first time I used a neck pillow, but I remember thinking it was a travel game changer. Perhaps it was in my twenties with all my travel back and forth to the West Coast and having fallen asleep on many a stranger's shoulders, I am not sure, but I haven't traveled without one in a decade. They gently cradle you neck and head assuring a comfortable rest and no neck pain when you wake up.
Have wonderful weekend!
Doing anything fun?
