With the winter weather encouraging us all to make like a bird and fly towards that warmer weather the dilemma we all face is how do you dress and pack for two completely different climates. Often when we are headed for the sunny beach oasis that we all crave we are leaving behind the frozen tundra. What that means is that we have to dress to get to the airport in freezing temperatures, but get off the plane often with a 80 degree difference. So what is the best way to stay warm before and after the vacay without sweating our buns off the second we step into that humid wonderland? Luckily for you guys as I was researching earlier this week I came across an article by fashion website Who What Wear that did an article on this very issue. They provide great insight into how to handle the drastic change in climate and stay comfortable while you do it.
One thing I think that they seem to highlight is something I would suggest to anyone traveling is layers and accessories are the key. Have the option to take off a sweater or add a vest to make sure you are always comfortable wherever you are. That being said one thing they didn’t think to highlight was the necessity of having a great travel bag that is big enough for all these layers, but small enough that you don’t feel like you are carrying around your entire closet. For those of you who are like me, I would suggest a large purse rather than a carry on and a small purse. I don’t like lugging two bags around in the airport as well as on the plane and rushing through customs. I use the Longchamp Le Pliage bag which is big enough to carry a backup outfit, your books, magazines, headphones, wallet and passport. I don’t like to overpack my carry on, but I want to make sure I have a fresh outfit to change into in case my luggage is lost. That being said this bag is not only stylish but it is incredibly durable. I have had mine for going on 3 years and it’s still going strong. Longchamp’s nylon bags are great for traveling because they are easy to clean and carry a ton of stuff. Plus they have a variety of bathroom bags, garment bags and luggage.
