Now, taking a job where my travel schedule is about to ramp up, I had to think strategically about what clothes I might take with me on a plane. I've gotten the "tips for business travel" from many female colleagues and websites and here's what I'm discovering:
- Never check baggage - you'll run the risk of it being lost and being stuck in your "plane clothes" all the next day.
- Wrinkle free is key - who wants to use a cruddy hotel iron?
- Sleeves! - you never know what kind of rooms you'll be stuck sitting in, but chances are they'll be cold instead of warm. Wear something with sleeves or bring a jacket to ensure you have options
I've had my eye on this Suzi Chin dress for a few weeks now. At $159, I wasn't sold, but it's on sale at Macy's for $111 so I ordered it yesterday - hoping it gets here before my flight leaves!
I've had this beautiful Calvin Klein dress in my closet for a while. It's my go-to "there's a client in the office" dress. It's Calvin Klein at Nordstrom for $98.
This one, I might just order today. What a beautifully professional look, while still bringing some color and sass to the ensemble. Maggy London at Nordstrom for $138.
