One of my favorite aspects of my day job is that I occasionally (but not too often - I'm the bedtime story reader around here) get to travel for work. Sometimes it's exciting destinations, sometimes it's...well, the work has to get done, you know? But either way, getting out of my element for a couple of days is a nice opportunity to meet new people, take a shower without fear of interruption from the children, and explore a new place. I know a lot of people complain about it, but it hasn't lost its luster as far as I'm concerned.
I do spend some time thinking about what I look like when I travel, because as my motto goes, I'm like a 7-11. I may not always be doing business, but I'm always open. You never know who you're going to meet, where the conversation might go, and what might happen as a result, so I always like to look my best. Not to mention that the meetings I'm traveling for may be starting shortly after I land, so there might not be much time for freshening up. However, comfort is also important, so I have a go-to outfit type and some key pieces of equipment that I rely on when I travel, and I thought I'd share my techniques with you.
As a side note, I will be discussing particular brands and products that I use personally. I'm not necessarily endorsing anything, and I'm not being compensated to mention them. I just happen to use them, and if you find something you like better or that works for you, go for it!
