Summer Travel Essentials
First up, let's talk about travel bags. There are so many options to choose from. I'm going to start off with 2 of my favorite Stella & Dot travel bags. Both can be used as a carry-on or used for a short overnight trip.
The first one is the fan favorite The Getaway Bag. It's a very special bag because it can be used in 2 different sizes. There is a zipper that will extend the bag 4 extra inches! Perfect if you are a shopper like me and need some extra space on the way home! I LOVE seeing people's reactions when I unzip the bag! Minds are Blown! This bag also makes a great pool bag because of the faux leather bottom.
If you like a smaller lighter bag, the Crush it Carry On is the bag! It is SO lightweight and wonderful! Hello Rose Gold Zippers. I always overpack my carry-on, okay fine, I always overpack period..... so it's perfect for me! Best part about the bag is that it has a back zipper pocket that slides over the suitcase handle. Gone are the days of your bag sliding off your suitcase!!! This bag makes traveling a breeze. Everyone needs this bag!!!!
If you are in my Facebook group, Sara's Style Insiders, you have heard me talk about how much I love Packing Cubes!!!!! They have changed my life when it comes to packing and traveling. It's like having organized drawers when you arrive to your destination. I always roll my clothes when I pack them into the cubes. Recently, I bought all 3 of my boys their own set. Each boy has a different color so we can tell them apart when they are sprawled out on the floor! It made me happy they were stoked to have their own set! Not bad two out of three boys liked the color I picked. LOL. I’ve linked some similar to the ones I use.
I always take a crossbody bag to be hands free while traveling. Sometimes I even take 2. I like to wear one while traveling for easy access. This Covet Crossbody is the perfect size. I can put my wallet & phone in it and then I can easily toss it into my carry-on bag. I typically also use this bag for dressier occasions. The second bag I typically bring is for daytime use. I've been grabbing for my straw crossbody. It's the perfect size for all my daytime necessities. Style Tip: straw bags are on trend for summer! Here are the two I've been using.
Last but not least, I always have multiple poufs with me when I travel. I use them for medications, charging cords, make up, etc. It's a great way to keep your carry-on organized. You can never have too many poufs! Here are a few other colors.
Thanks for reading! Part 2 coming soon!
