My Travel Must-Haves

Calling all travelers! Let’s talk plane essentials. I [try] to travel both minimally and comfortably, so the same few items always seem to make it in my carry-on.  A cozy flight = a non-cranky trip.

While I’m still wandering through Paris [eating tons of baguettes, by the way], it seemed appropriate to include a chic passport holder in the roundup. On the lesser-chic end are a pair of thick socks + the ultimate travel pillow. Really, though, you need this pillow… 


1. Cedar Street Passport Holder by Kate Spade – $78

2. Cashmere Travel Wrap by White and Warren – $298

3. Custom Quiet Comfort Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones by Bose – $399

4. Stance Alpine Anklet Socks – $12

5. Ostrich Ultimate Travel Pillow – $39.99

As for my in-flight beauty essentials, less is always more while traveling. I’m a huge fan of cleansing wipes [for the start + end of the trip]. They keep me feeling clean and grease-free. I also love a refreshing toner + a moisturizing lip balm, because flights always dry me out. Before hopping off the flight, try applying an oil-reducing gel and a cream blush to add a little color to a sleepy face!
