STYLE ON THE GO
Dark blue soft denim jeans (Rag & Bone, $140) or black stretch leggings (Versace, $459) are the fail-safe options to look chic while maintaining maximum comfort. Throw on a white tee and a fitted blazer (J. Crew, $110) and you can hit the ground running the second your plane lands — and dash off to a meeting or cocktails with friends. Finish off the look with mascara (Inglot False Lash Effect, $16) and a wow-worthy crimson pout (MAC Lipglass Ruby Roo, $17).
YOU GOT THIS IN THE BAG
You can’t ever go wrong with a great bag. After all, for a woman it’s an imperative extension of herself. Throw in travel and it becomes an even more important component. I’m a stickler for functionality and quality, and when traveling I always opt for a classic black bag. Picks for the season include Serapian 48 Hours Travel Bag ($1,660); Balenciaga City XL Blackout Perforated Leather Tote ($3,750); and the Mulberry Multi-Tasker Backpack ($1,590).
KEEP THE GLOW A GO
Time spent on a plane is time used to your advantage if spent wisely. An hour before landing, I start with an organic lavender-scented hand sanitizer (EO, $4.99) to wipe my hands, followed by facial towelettes (The Honest Company, $5.99) to clean my face. I then apply a serum (A Complete Highly Concentrated Youth Preserve Serum, $54) and put on a recovery mask (Dr. Jart + Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask, $7.50). Less than an hour later, my face looks refreshed and ready for whatever adventure awaits!
A SUNNY DISPOSITION
I always feel healthier, leaner and more graceful with a tan. Enter spray tan guru Fabiola of Atma Beauty. Nope, no last name needed — she’s that revered. Three days before heading off to any destination, I set up my appointment to get sun-kissed all over. Top brands for an on-the-go-do-it-yourself hue: Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner ($29.95); Tom Ford Bronzing Gel ($48); coconut-scented James Read Gradual Tan ($37); and Aerin Gradual Tan For Face & Body ($65).
