Oh, hello there! I’m in New York City. Sort of. I’m in a hotel preparing for a meeting, and then I will be in that meeting, and then I will be on a plane back to San Jose. So I’m not “in New York,” exactly, I’m more “moving through New York at very rapid speeds.”
I stood under the Empire State Building this morning, though, so that was something.
MAN, have the past five days ever involved a lot of travel. A seven-hour drive to Los Angeles, a seven-hour drive back, a quick emptying and repacking of my duffle, a six-hour flight to New York, and now (or at least later today) a six-hour flight back. I’m ready for life to be slightly less boring for a couple of days, but in the meantime something I am feeling extremely expert-y about is travel wear.
Remember those cashmere sweatpants that I bought when I was hosting a DKNY even a couple of months backand felt sort of crazy for having purchased something as obviously unnecessary as cashmere sweatpants?
OH MY NECESSARY.
They are wonderful. They make seven-hour car rides with toddlers and six-hour JetBlue flights (in the middle seat because #ofcourse) so much more wonderful.
Other necessary en route items, as illustrated above:
- Something bright to offset all those greys and whites and blacks we all wear while traveling, because when you are exhausted a little orange sometimes makes it better;
- A tote that’s cute but not so fancy that you’re upset about the prospect of stuffing it into an already-overstuffed overhead bin;
- PaPaw Ointment;
- Jenni Kayne flats. (I don’t actually own the latter, but Francesca does, and I spent all weekend obsessing over hers and plan to own these shortly.)
If you’re on the East Coast, stay dry. If you’re out West, see you soon!
