Whether you are traveling to see family or friends or traveling to a warmer or cooler climate, traveling during the holiday season always seems to add a different dimension to the commute.
For this post, I'm going to offer some tips that will help you make your holiday traveling a little less stressful.
Often times, especially when it comes to holiday travel, you know in advance where you will be going. So, start thinking ahead. Whether this means checking with the neighbors to see if they can stop by to water your plants or pulling your suitcases down from the attic, by taking some time today to do small tasks, it's those small tasks that will leave you with just a little extra time on the day of your commute.
From the airport chill to the varying preferences of the thermostat in the car, layers are a must. Bring pieces that are comfortable for sitting long hours in, even if you aren't going that far - plan for the unexpected. Also, remember that layers can still be flattering.
For example, try an oversized boucle or cashmere sweater over an Adea Layering Top with a pair of Adea's Stretch Leggings in Italian Jersey paired with a pair of boots. You'll be comfortable, be in layers and be stylish!
Last but not least is a reminder to bring your patience. Of course this is easier said than done, but remember that if your flight is delayed or you get stuck in traffic, fighting with your spouse or getting irritated about the situation is not going to help you get there any faster. Instead, take a deep breath and remember that before you know it, the moment will be over - just ride out the wave.
Have a happy and safe holiday!

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
