I have clear memories of my Mom traveling for work. I would see her carefully plan and pack her outfits: skirts, blazers, high heels, Gucci handbags, perfumes.
The past month I’ve had to jump on a few airplanes myself for work. And I have to admit that no planning has been put into my suitcase building — I joked to Abraham that that’s the benefit of wearing jeans & t-shirts all the time. However after a couple of trips across the country…there are some things that I have figured make traveling four, fives, six hours (in coach)a bit more fun.
Yoga pants and cotton boyfriend t-shirts I bought at Target. I have that t-shirt in absolutely every color they make and I love it!
I feel almost barefoot in the Skechers I travel with and that’s better than taking my shoes off like the lady on one of the last trips I took did…there was something about having to stare at her feet for five hours that wasn’t comforting at all.
Water, books (currently reading Orange is the New Black), snacks, headphones (music soozes me during turbulence) and if you need leg room pay the $50 for the Exit Row.
And then there’s the bag. I have been using my iotatote, which I got on a business trip to Atlanta, and I highly recommend. It is a sturdy mix of jute and cotton called juco and it holds up just about everything. I carry my laptop and I have even thrown my purse into it – consolidating into on big comfortable bag. The only thing I feel is missing is a little pocket but other than that this Tote is amazing.
I may not be the business travel I had envisioned when I was a little girl but I’m happy because I’m doing it my way.
What is your way?
