Last week, Anh at 9 to 5 Chic shared the contents of her travel bag, and I thought that it was such a cute idea, that I decided to do the same.
The Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Linen Spark Satchel. I picked this bag up at the Rebecca Minkoff online sample sale this spring, and I get so many compliments on it. I like it for travel because it’s big enough to hold all my essentials, but not so big that I feel like I need a yak to help me carry it.
Travel Extras (working clockwise): Gold Rebecca Minkoff Zip Wallet holds all my essentials. Gum, because it’s either that or giving into the airport Taco Bell kiosk. Burt’s Bees chapstick. Advil. Purell (If it weren’t for the 3oz rule, that would be the gallon size.) Travel hairbrush.
I always pack a scarf for the plane. This patterened oatmeal and slate blue scarf is my favorite. Though, now that the weather is colder, I will probably break out my cashmere shawl.
Lastly, in the bottom row, we have my Ray-Bans. These are my go-to sunglasses because they go with everything. I also like to carry my receipts for my expenses and the like it’s this Rebecca Minkoff pouch.
Reading Material: I always like to pack a selection of magazines, these are some of my favorites. I also usually have Guns & Ammo and Real Simple. What can I say? I’m a woman of diverse interests.
I’m also reading Moneyball, right now. I highly recommend it. In fact, I like it so much, it makes me want to learn more about baseball. And that’s weird.
Jewelry: I like to carry my jewelry with me instead of in my suitcase. Here, we have a selection of rings (my favorite), a chunky pyramid bracelet, a gold pendant and a backup pair of earrings. Even though I wear my studs nearly every day, I like to carry a pair of drops when I travel in case I need to dress up for some unexpected reason. I also like to recycle my Birchbox box as a jewelry carrier.
So what do you carry when you travel?
