Travelling Fashionably: Antigua and Barbuda

Always dress like you’re going to see your worst enemy – Kimora Lee-Simmons

Air travel comes with its own special blend of excitement and frustration. Long check-in lines, those annoying security checks, even more annoying and maybe slightly crazy fellow travellers … it’s only the promise of a new locale (and a new shopping experience) that make it all worth it.

Truth be told, I get a thrill whenever I’m in an airport despite all the real and potential horrors.

But Friday was the first time I was flying out in the morning and coming back in the evening. I knew it would be rough but I also figured it would be an interesting experience.

Given that I would be going straight from the V.C. Bird International Airport in Antigua and Barbuda to a press conference, I had to be dressed for business from the start. So the outfit had to be professional, comfortable and wrinkle free, but not boring.
Sounds just like a soft black cardigan!

Once I’d chosen the leopard print top to go underneath, I felt I needed some colour so I chose this turquoise necklace and the bracelet.

I made sure to take a big bag that could hold all most of my belonging and ballet flats for when the official stuff was over.

The view from the Antigua and Barbuda Hospitality Training Centre was so beautiful and the breeze off the sea was rather refreshing. I think I could’ve stayed there forever.

But as always happens when I get comfortable, I was soon back at VC Bird International rushing to finish a story and still do my part for the country’s economy.

No matter how little time I have, I always find a few minutes to make a couple purchases and this time was no different. I’ll share them in my next post.

But until then, tell me, what’s your secret to travelling fashionably?
