Girl on the Go…Ten Travel Essentials
Recently, have been traveling non-stop and was inspired to share some of my essential travel items below. These keep you looking and feeling chic and polished while on the go.
#1: The Perfect Black Sweater
Simple, yet sophisticated, and can be worn for a variety of occasions. I never leave home without a black sweater in my bag. Typically, I opt for Joseph as their cashmere sweaters feel divine and have are cut to flatter. Shown: Joseph Cashmere Top, available at www.netaporter.com.
#2: A Printed Scarf
Make sure you select a pattern that will complement a number of pieces you are packing. Not only will they act serve as a layering piece for varied temperatures, the add a bit of finesse to your ensemble. Shown: Leopard Cashmere Blend Scarf, available at www.calypsostbarth.com.
#3: Slim Denim
The ultimate in versatility. To dress up, throw on a blazer and pumps and to dress down, slip on a tee shirt, scarf and flats. These Rag & Bone skinny mid-rise jeans are my favorite because of their soft stretch and perfect wash. Available at www.netaporter.com.
Comfort is key to effortless style while traveling. Select a pair of flats that fit well and add a bit of panache to your outfits. The best part? For every one pair of heels packed, you can pack 2-3 pairs of flats. Available at www.netaporter.com.
These clear, durable bags are essential for staying organized while traveling. Being able to see what is in each one saves time and since spills seem inevitable, these are easy to clean. I order five at a time and use in my purse, gym bag and suitcase. Available at www.amazon.com.
#6: Soveral Forever Young Oil
Flights and hotels seem to have particularly drying air. Applying Soveral Forever Young Oil in the mornings and evenings helps skin stay hydrated. This luxurious formula is best applied using the Soveral Facial Massage Technique (see post http://styleandlife.com/alexandra-soveral-facial-massage-video/). Available at www.alexandrasoveral.com.
