Happy Monday and Aloha! Traveling for work is a big part of my job, and sometimes I get lucky and get to travel to fun places. And this week, I’m off to Hawaii. Of course, most of the time I will be in an air-conditioned office building, and then running back to the hotel to prepare for the next work day and FaceTime Alex to help him with homework. My job as mom does not go away when I’m in a different timezone! But after that, I’ll be going for a well deserved Pina-colada by the beach. Well, at least, that’s the plan. (Follow me on Snapchat @splashofteal for my daily madness!)
Now, since I never give myself much time to pack, I always throw in my good-for-any-occasion little black dress to wear to work ~ usually, when I pack, I think of the activities I will be doing (in chronological order hehe), pack an outfit for each of the activities, and then add accessories for each outfit. If I am traveling for work, my LBD always makes it into the pile because it always looks great, doesn’t require much accessorizing (just add shoes!), and is a perfect alternative to bulky and space consuming suits. This Zara dress is short and loose and gives a perfect balance between the warm weather outside and the cool air inside.
Given that Hawaiian air is humid and makes my hair frizzy, I skipped the blowdrying (major time saver score!). Instead, I sprayed Bumble and Bumble seasalt spray on my wet hair and let it air dry, a super convenient change from my most worn hairstyle, the ponytail.
Wishing you a great summer Monday!
