I don't know what it is, but when the weather starts warming up, the travel bug sets in hard! When your wanderlust hits a peak, there's no other choice but to pack your bags and hit the road. Whether you're traveling near or far, there are some essentials you just can't leave behind.
A Day Bag
Your main luggage is surely important, but make sure you've got a great bag to carry with you on all your day adventures. This should be something that can hold your essentials for the day but isn't too bulky or hard to carry around. I love to use a small, chic backpack like this one from Forever21.
It may not sound like a very glamorous suggestion, but the world is not always a sanitary place. Keep a small container or hand sanitizer in your bag so you stay healthy in your travels.
Good, comfortable shoes are a definite need when you are on the road. No matter where you go, there will always be a lot of walking involved. Pack ankle boots for days with less walking and sneakers or athletic shoes for days you know you'll be hitting the pavement more.
When packing for a trip, you don't want to be weighed down with accessories for every single outfit. Instead, pack simple accessories that can be worn with many different outfits, from dressy to casual. For this, I absolutely love all of our tribe necklaces!
I don't know about you, but I can only wear my favorite pair of skinny jeans for so long. When you need a little more confort when traveling, make sure you pack some stretchy skirts. And even better if they are of the floral variety and bring an air of femininity to your look. These skirts, whether a-line or pencil in shape, can be worn with a t-shirt and sneakers for a more casual look, with a drapey sweater, or a long cardigan. The possibilities are endless, making this a diverse piece for your traveling wardrobe.
Organizational Canvas Pouches
Canvas pouches with sassy sayings? All day, every day. If you're anything like me, it's SO easy to misplace and lose things when you're traveling. (Alright, let's be honest. It's so easy to lose things in every day life.) Small canvas pouches holding your valuables that you can just throw into your bag are a lifesaver. And sanity saver.
So book that trip and pack your bags with all your travel essentials!
Happy shopping and happy travels!
