WHAT TO WEAR ON THE AIRPLANE
Firstly, wear slip on shoes with a socks. There is nothing worse than walking through security check in bare feet.
You can always take your socks off after you’ve gone through security.
Lulu Melon pants with the pockets are great for a long plane ride and stylish too. www.lululemon.com
I like bringing my own blanket along for the flight or Pashmina. I like the scent and know where its been.
Don’t wear a sweater on the plane, big mistake.
Don’t wear a belt, it will slow you down through security.
I do like layering, due to the fact that I am constantly spilling coffee on myself.
Wear a dark t-shirt-never never never white on the plane. Trust me!!!!
This is where I like making or finding the best gourmet food I can find. Travel is stressful, enjoy the ride.
Carry on bag – book, candy, gum, magazine, passports, medicine, glasses and sunglasses, money, license, phone, crossword, house keys,
snacks, contact and contact solution, nail file, tweezers, pen and paper, pashmina or cashmere throw, neck pillow, vitamins,
plane ticket, any jewelry you brought, travel toothbrush, teeth whitener, cotton sweater, computer or ipad, bottled water, and
swimsuit in case your luggage gets delayed and you and your kids can hit the pool!!!!
