Travel Season is Coming
Temperatures are rising and summer is just around the corner! That means peak travel season is on the way. I have a few trips planned myself and wanted to share some of my favorite travel tips that make the journey more enjoyable.
Any successful trip starts with a thoughtful itinerary. While an itinerary requires some effort to put together, I find it helps me maximize my time while at my destination and enjoy myself more on the trip. Also, I like to preplan my outfits and an itinerary helps me figure out exactly what to wear each day based on the activities that are planned.
Once I have my itinerary made and outfits planned, I pack everything up in my trusty Rimowa Trunk Plus suitcase. This suitcase is ultra-durable and holds EVERYTHING. To keep things organized inside the suitcase, I use packing cubes. Pro-tip: pack a travel size steamer to remove wrinkles from your clothes after unpacking.
We all know planes can be dehydrating, so I pack a few essentials to combat this. I bring plenty of water as well as some electrolyte packets for when I need an extra hydration boost. To avoid chapped lips, I keep my tried and true Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask nearby – the berry scent is my top choice!
Planes are loud, so I bring along a pair of comfortable noise canceling headphones if I’m wanting some quiet time. I love this sleek pair from Apple. To pass the time, I like to read magazines – Vogue, Town & Country, and Harper’s BAZAAR are among my favorites.
I can’t forget the most important thing for a successful travel day: a comfortable outfit! When dressing for a travel day, I look for pieces that are breathable, soft, and layer easily. The PXG Fairway Camo Jogger paired with a comfy tee and sweatshirt has been a go-to outfit. Shoes have got to be comfortable too – I reach for a sneaker or even a sock with sandal combo.
However you are traveling this season, I hope these tips help you make your journey with ease.
