My Airport Necessities and Travel Style

Happy Saturday friends! I’m gettin’ on a jet plane today bound for Charleston, South Carolina! I have my very first in-person job interview on Monday with a local marketing firm and I’m hoping I nail this interview. In the mean time, I’ll be exploring Charleston and getting a feel for the area. But first, I’ve got to make it on time for my flight, get through TSA, and hope my flight is delayed due to the weather. Jet Set Style

Airport Necessities

As a seasoned traveler (ok, not really), I’ve learned to expect and prepare for flight delays due to weather, so I make sure to stuff my carry on with things to entertain me for awhile. TSA agents find this in my bag:

  • A fashion magazine (preferably Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar)
  • Bottled water (which they make me throw out)
  • Bubble gum
  • Ear buds
  • Laptop and charger
  • Travel pillow (not just for airplanes)
  • Lilly Pulitzer Agenda (planners gonna plan!)
  • Small make up bag (nothing over 3 oz.)

As far as my airport style goes, I have put a self-ban on sweatpants of any kind. I usually fly out of the DC airports and you never know who is going to be on your flight. Having lived in the capital and been taught the ins and outs of networking, you always have to look your best no matter where you are.

Typically, I wear flats similar to the Kate Spade mules above, dark wash jeans, and soft t shirt with a blazer over it. I’ve been trying to track down a blanket scarf and a cape for ages but can’t seem to find one that isn’t too expensive and in stock. I find that this airport uniform works for all seasons. If it’s winter, I’ll stick my coat in my carry on and wear my blazer, which is what I’m doing right now.

Here’s to looking fabulous on the fly!

Cozy Winter Style

snow_in_southern_maryland Tuesday snuck up on me and so did Monday. My weekends are going so fast for some reason. I woke up yesterday and was shocked that it was over. I went out to run some errands and get my coffee when I was greeted with another surprise: white flurries falling from the sky. The weatherman had called for snow but they always make a big deal out of nothing. Driving home was all sorts of interesting as Marylanders creeped along on the highways so they wouldn’t skid. We aren’t used to this white stuff.

When I got home, I camped out in front of the fire and cuddled the kitty. In weather like this, having the proper warm, cozy equipment is crucial! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite winter weather things for making this snow storm that much lovelier!
