Traveling to a Warmer Place…

Traveling to a Warmer Place…


Dress smart for that plane trip, you’re not there yet and still need to wear some comfortable, warm clothes for traveling. It can be cool on the airplane and you may want to sleep a little.

Sympli, Frank Lyman and Joseph Ribkoff fill the bill on all three requests. These brands don’t wrinkle, are warm and breathable and the right style will feel like wearing pajamas, so you can have your nap comfortably.

After our snowstorms many people are planning a winter get-away. When we decide on last minute trips to hot spots, the next thought is where can I buy shorts, wraps and a new bathing suit this time of year?

That’s what I like about Close to You. They sell bathing suits year-round and all the accessories that come with it.

You’ll look like a model in this ‘Take Cover’ pant, wearing any bathing suit with a wee bit of black in the design and the appropriate sun hat with a black band.




There are so many bathing suits to choose from. New suits from ‘Amoena’ have just arrived. Here we have a two-piece blue and pink’ Maritu’ style and a one- piece southwestern ‘Manda’ pattern.



Once you get to your destination wear your newly purchased ‘Tommy Bahama’ clothes. Margaret is showing the ever popular striped wide-leg ‘Tommy Bahama’ pant with a Frank Lyman white blouse – great combination!

If you like white, here is a cool little ‘Tommy Bahama’ cotton sundress, with a wild scarf-necklace. You might want to take a jacket or sweater with you for evenings.

Come have a look at some great new ‘TB’ jackets now in different weights and styles. You can’t go wrong with ‘Tommy Bahama’ products. They’re all breathable, extremely durable and will look like new for years.

For daywear, choose your style from these versatile ‘Up!’ capris, shorts or skorts. Top them with any color T-shirt or ‘Niki-Biki’ spaghetti strap or wider strap tops.

Q. & A.

Q. I always take too many clothes when visiting hot spots, coming home with half my wardrobe not even worn. Too many shoes also take up so much luggage space. Can you offer any suggestions?

A. Think of the activities you’re going to be involved in. If your trip is only a week or two of relaxing, sight-seeing and going out to dinner, the packing can be trimmed easily.

For pool and beach, you just need a bathing suit, wrap, flip-flops or sandals and a sunhat. (Don’t forget sunglasses).

For daywear, take comfortable walking sandals, capris, shorts and a sun dress. You can roll up some T-shirts and tops in any color.

For evening fine dining, a beautiful sandal with a little higher heel and one simple eye-catching dress (any length). Minimize your jewelry. Be sure to take a cardigan or light jacket. If you only like casual dinners, you can just wear your daywear.

Take some cool short pajamas, a nightshirt or a nightgown, so you sleep well.

Take your fun and favourite clothes to make you feel great. There will be lots of pictures and fond memories. Let your good taste show through.

Happy travels in 2020,
