Spring Travel

Hi Chicas!!!

Travelling during spring can be quite tricky, especially across different climate zones. Whether you are travelling through various states/cities or across different countries, the weather can be quite unpredictable. Planes, trains, cars or buses - the mode of transport can also add to the temperature fluctuations. Its a season where it can get hotter/colder/windier without much warning. Therefore, the best way to ease travel stress is to dress comfortably and be prepared for the worst of weathers.

Spring Travel Checklist
  1. Layer your Wear - Try to wear atleast 3-4 layers of clothing while you travel. If you are travelling from a hotter place wear a single layer and keep the rest in your carry on baggage or your purse.
  2. Big Bag - It is always smart to carry a big bag with a lot of compartments where you can store your passport/ID, tickets, phone, basic makeup, toothbrush, hairbrush and an additional change of clothes in case of an emergency.
  3. Comfortable Shoes - We all love heels and it is hard to say goodbye to those beauties! However, you do not want to twist your ankles while running to board a flight/train/bus. So sticking to flats or sneakers during travel is a good way to show your pretty feet some love.
  4. Sock ém Up - It is always better to wear socks when you travel. They keep your feet warm when its cold and also keep your feet clean and hygienic while treading unknown territories and public restrooms! 
  5. Scarf It- It is a must wear piece of clothing for travel as it serves multiple functions. You can wear it around your neck or as a headband/bandana to keep your hair in place. When it has solved its purpose it can be tied along the bag to perk it up.
I was travelling this weekend from a much colder Oregon to a sunny Los Angeles and this is what I wore! I mixed and matched various colors, rolled up my pants and put on some bright orange nail paint & lipstain. I hate accessorising when I travel so I just wore a white and golden strap watch which is not visible in the pic..will post pictures with it soon.
