There are a plethora of bags in the market for us women. What I want in a bag as a working women is comfort, good looks, good compartmentalization and good quality. With we women being on the move all the time and with our habit of multitasking, it becomes important to have a good bag.
I have recently discovered the importance and utility of a cross sling bag. It is a variant of the age old messenger bag, albeit with more style.
I love the ones with tassels, as they look extremely stylish.
You can also opt for printed ones to add color to a monochrome outfit.
Chic comfy traveling fashion is what we all desire.Now this is a simple guide on fashion while actually you are on the move! Once you reach your destination , these strict rules can be relaxed a little.
Right from shoes. to your hair, small things matter that make your trip comfortable and make you look chic and hep at the same time.
Wear flats obviously with a great sole that has a good grip. Closed shoes are a must as that prevents all the dirt from getting to your feet. You can go with good sports shoes, but for me I like nude ballerinas with a good sole. They are easy to slip on and off, look good and go with everything. You can also wear nice sport shoes with a great arch.
My latest fashion fixation is pajama pants. With an elastic waistband and loose fit they are oh so comfy. No buttons no zippers ….pure bliss. The best part is that they come in all types of fabrics now including denim.
Need. I say much about that? Any upper in a wrinkle free fabric, dark colors, comfortable fit …that’s it. I prefer carrying a stylish stole for those oh so cold airports. Also u can have a good snooze inside it.
Moisturize moisturize moisturize…that and a nude makeup which is mainly concealer based. That looks the best. A light colored gloss and u r good to go. Dont forget a waterproof mascara to make your eyes look wide open and awake. I personally like to add color with the help a rose tinted blusher. ( Again , the pics!!!)
Dont forget the mini makeup must haves.Refer:
Freshly washed ,neatly tied is the way to go. I prefer a blow dry before setting out as it gives me neat look and stays for a long time. That is also important as we need to look good in photographs too:)
CARRY IT ALL BAG.
Carry a cross sling bag for comfort ,with a lot of zipper pockets for safety. Carry a black or a brown bag in n faux leather so that it is easy on maintenance. Multiple zippers ensure compartmentalization and make it easy to locate your stuff.
Wear a simple yet chic neck-piece that can easily be removed . I don’t wear earrings as I find them uncomfortable, bot if you must wear ones with a clasp so that they don’t poke you while you doze off while traveling.
A simple watch with a metal strap is all that you need. Don’t overdo the accessories. Wear just one classy , comfortable piece.

BE HAPPY ALWAYS
