Jet-Setting

This past week, I think I spent about 24 hours either in an airport, or on a plane.  It got a little crazy there for a moment...plane delays, mechanical errors, cancellations, bad weather....you name it, I dealt with it.

So the negatives of that were: tired feet, lack of sleep, boredom, no snacks on the plane (boo, Delta), and $4 bottles of water from the airport.

The positives were: endless hours of entertainment from people-watching, 1 upgrade to first class, catching up on my magazines and books, and noting lots of fashion do's and dont's (there were a lot more don'ts).

So with aiport fashion on my mind, I thought I'd share some of my favorite go-to traveling pieces. I tend to dress "comfy/chic".... something comfortable, but cute too (no pajamas for me).

1. A cozy scarf (cute & stylish, and perfect for curling up with on the plane).




2. A ginormous carry-on bag, that can hold just about everything.




3. Eyeshades and earplugs (for red-eyes, or flights where you're seated next to "chatty Kathy", or crying babies)



4. Comfy shoes (Uggs/boots in the winter, flats in the summer)




Uggs  and Gap flats 


6. Entertainment:  Iphone/books/magazines galore (I don't sleep well in planes)




7. Chapstick/hand lotion (my favorites are below)




And now, some of my favorite fashionistas with comfy/chic airport style:
