The Traveling Fashionista.


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 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.

Following are some pictures from my travel diary.

How to fit everything into your Clutch.


Now that looks like a daunting task! But with a little sensible planning , you can actually be free of the heavy tote we all carry  around either on our shoulders or on our arms  like Arm-Hook Crook way adopted by the very fashionable Victoria Beckham.

But I refuse to be a fashion victim and am very particular about comfort. In my last post I spoke about my latest fixation, oversized clutches.

So here comes. My simple fixes for for fitting everything in your bag.

1) Buy a big oversized clutch with adequate compartments.

2) Buy smaller versions of all your essential makeup items.

Or even better …lip pencil in your favorite color. They are great for touch up and last more too. They also occupy less space!

3) Add to it a small hair brush,wet wipes and a miniature perfume bottle ( always ask for sample perfume bottles whenever you buy your perfume)


4) I even carry small Cream Color Base from Mac which is versatile and multipurpose. It can act as a nose bridge / face highlighter and as an underlashline highlighter. Choose one matching your skin tone.

5) Car keys should be placed in an outside pocket so that you don’t have to dig deep to find them .

6) A small notebook and pen completes the list.

So dearies ….happy clutching:)
