Traveling Chic: Bon Voyage!

By  | 

In this,  first installment of Traveling Chic, We are going to talk about how I would like to dress as if I might run into my personal style star, Ms. Kimora Lee Simmons. Unfortunately, this philosophy can sometimes mean that I end up doing the absolute most. Case in point: While headed to Miami last year for a cruise with the Hubs, I wore my foolproof travel ensemble which included a pair of skinny jeans, a tee and blazer. Instead of taking my own advice and traveling in flats, I threw on some supermodel-esque 4 inch pumps and headed to the airport. Needless to say that between walking to the gates, going through security, waiting in line to check in on the ship, etc., I was damn near hobbling…and my flats were in my checked luggage!

The lesson here: When you’re getting ready to set sail on a cruise, it really is all about the carry-on baby!

Here’s why:

Once you board the ship, it can take a while for your luggage to be delivered to your stateroom and you’ll probably want to go into vacay mode ASAP. Some strategic carry-on packing will ensure that you’re ready for anything from drinks by the pool to doing the dougie at the bon voyage party.

The Carry-On Strategy:
The daytime dress code on most ships is resort casual. If you’ll want to get out of your traveling clothes when you hit the ship, consider packing a pair of shorts and a crisp white button down. Finish the ‘fit with Fab flats and you’re golden!
