Travel Essentials

It’s been a while since I shared an updated list of my travel essentials so today I’m sharing all those items I have to have with me when I take a trip. My next trip is in three weeks so you can bet each of these pieces will be coming with me!

Travel Essentials list

Travel Essentials

Cuyana Alpaca Wrap:

I am generally always cold on airplanes yet managed to constantly forget having a scarf or wrap in case of necessity so I got this wrap and now bring it on every flight with me. It’s also great to have on days where the weather may change and you want an extra layer to wrap around you. It is so soft and I love the fit of it so much.

Cuyana Leather Laptop Case:

I often travel with my laptop so I ensure it is tucked away safely in this beautiful case. I also use it weekly whenever I take my laptop with me to The Wing or to meet with clients.

Truffle Clarity Clutch:

This pouch may not look like much but it is a god-send for packing liquids. It fits so much and easily is wiped out if any liquids happen to leak. I also love that I can easily see what all is in there and find what I need right away.

Cuyana Passport Holder:

This is more for looks than practicality but I love having my passport tucked into this personalized holder. I think it makes a great gift for friends who love to travel as well.

Everlane Modern Loafers:

My go-to shoe for trips that involve a lot of walking! These shoes do need breaking in before you travel in them but I’ve worn them all over Europe and for days spent with tons of steps.

Cuyana Cosmetic Cases:

You’ve heard me talk about these for forever but they are the best. I use the larger one for my makeup and the smaller for any medicine or must-haves on the plane in my carry on tote.

Mophie Powerstation:

A god-send! I actually can’t believe I didn’t get one of these until only a couple years ago. It’s great for days where you don’t want to deal with the anxiety of finding an outlet to charge your phone. It lasts for several hours and goes to work quickly.

Cuyana Tote:

My go-to bag when I travel. It fits everything I need (including my DSLR camera) and is super durable. I find it is better to travel with than a more structured tote. I have it in a few colors and love that they can be monogrammed.

Eberjey Pajamas:

You guys know I love these PJs. They are always in my suitcase when I travel.

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones:

I truly cannot get on a plane without these now! Ever since getting them three years ago I’d consider them one of the best investments ever. They work to drown out background noise on plans and help me be able to get some sleep and also lower my anxiety on flights that have a lot going on (loud talkers, crying children, etc, etc, etc.)

Slip Silk Eye Mask:

I can’t travel without this eye mask! I use it on red eyes religiously and sometimes in hotels too.

Sole Society Weekender:

This is my secret weapon for long trips or for trips I may want to do some shopping on. I bring it on the plane with me with any valuables I don’t feel comfortable checking. But I also leave some room to spare for any items I may pick up on my travels that may not fit on my suitcase.

. . .

I also swear by my Away suitcases. I have both the bigger carry on (a god-send that fits so much!) and also the Medium that is great for longer trips.
