‘Tis the season when everyone travels back home. The days are long, the waiting periods are never-ending, but the arrival makes you forget it all. Kind of like having a baby. And today’s post is focused on my travel uniform and the rules it follows. Especially on long-ass travels when comfort is key, and it starts from the outside in.

Again, comfort is key.

As I preluded, comfort is essential. I mainly pick clothes I feel my most comfortable self in. Like sweatpants, loose pants, stretchy pants. Anything that has a give, lets me move easily and does not cause a stuck feeling. For winter, I usually try to have a pair of knit pants. For summer, I maybe go for cotton or an ever lighter fabric. Never jeans nor skirts. Loose knits that don’t itch and have a darker color or an oversized shirt. A pair of sneakers and my glasses.


Always have layers. Whether it rains or shines. Especially to go on planes, which can be very cold environments. I always pack a pair of thick socks, to take off my shoes. Have an extra sweater or cardigan and a Uniqlo heat-tech. Never hurts to have a little more than what you might need.


This. Is. Essential. I never travel without a big tote that can carry all my things. And by things I mean computer, documents, wallet, book, glasses, charger, phone, snacks (for us and Poppy), water, socks, tissue paper, hand cream, sample perfume and chapstick. I always do a check-list before leaving the house to make sure I’m not forgetting anything. It gets easier when I travel with M because we can share the weight.


I still haven’t stepped up my game and turned to in-flight masks, but I always carry my moisturizer. My skin gets extremely dry on planes, and every few hours, I spray some rose water and apply a tad of moisturizer. Another trick is to drink lots of water before and throughout the flight. You’ll arrive feeling way better and less bloated.
