Traveling Smart and Chic

Here are a few tips from me to you on how to travel smart and in style. Safe travels!

Strategic Packing
-Make a list of planned activities and events so you know what you're packing for
-Always bring at least one extra pair of underwear, socks, and bra as well as one additional 'wear anywhere outfit' for unexpected events
-Outline your outfits, whether that means making a list on paper or on your phone or take photos of each outfit for each event

Pre-Flight Checklist
-Keep your chargers with you, even if you won't use that electronic on the flight and charge everything you will use right before you head out the door
-Drink lot's of water before takeoff to combat dehydration and use the bathroom right before the plane to avoid lines or dirty bathrooms
-Stock up on reading material, games, and snacks because you never know how long the flight or wait to get on could end up being

Maximizing Your Space
-Rolling your clothes typically works best to keep things wrinkle free
-Never pack your shoes as a pair, spread them out amongst your suitcase
-Add items such as socks and underwear that can fill in small spaces last

Stylish Travels
-Comfortable leggings or other pants that are easy to move in
-Layers! An oversized t-shirt with a cardigan and scarf always does the trick
-A light bag that you can load up with the essentials

Inflight Essentials
-An oversized scarf that can double as a blanket or even a pillow
-Lip moisturizer is an absolute must to keep your lips hydrated in the dry air
-Snacks and anything else to keep you occupied whether it's music or magazines
