Always Travel in Style

Flowers

I took a trip back to the South for Mother’s Day weekend to surprise my mom. She’s impossible to shop for, so being the narcissist I am, I thought I was the best present to show up on her doorstep. No one knew I was visiting, so when I showed up with a bouquet of flowers (above) and walked through the front door at dinnertime everyone was thrilled. I was relieved that she was so happy to see me because I figured I would either be welcomed with excitement or scolded for being so good at lying for a month about the planned trip and sneaking down the East Coast.

How to Dress When Flying South

Headed to a Caribbean or other warm weather destination to escape the winter chill? Lucky you! But just because you’re flying somewhere warm, doesn’t mean you can leave home for the airport in flip flops. When flying south, it’s smart to layer, layer, layer. Leave your big bulky North Face jacket at home and instead wear a cute patterned tank, layered with a thin, but warm cashmere cardi, layered with a cargo jacket, topped with a pashmina scarf. That way you’ll have not one but three options for toppers should your destination be unexpectedly cold—many islands and beaches are windy or cool down a bit at night. When it comes to bottoms, we always recommend white jeans for the plane—just be careful with your coffee if there’s turbulence! White jeans are warm enough for your departure day in Minneapolis, Philly, the North Pole, but are made for tropical isles. Now footwear? Wear your favorite plane travel shoes (we like cowboy boots, but if you plan to work out, you could wear your sneaks to save room in your suitcase), then stash a pair of flip flops or sandals in your carry on and swap them out before you deplane. Once you land, start shedding the layers and have a rum punch, margarita or Red Stripe for us!
