I just got back from a two-week trip to the UK and Paris! It was incredible. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing my trip with you guys, but first I want to share my favorite style related travel essentials:
Having a good pair of sunglasses is key when you’re a tourist. Aside from keeping the sun out of your eyes, they elevate everything you wear—something I desperately needed. They are also perfect for the no makeup travel days.
I got this palette for Christmas and knew instantly how much it would come in handy this summer. It’s the perfect travel palette because it has everything you need (eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, powder) and it is easy to pack. When I swapped this with all my separate products I ended up saving tons of space.
This coat is incredibly versatile. I was attracted to the flattering cut, but it’s so much more than that. It is lightweight and easy to wear as your everyday coat, but also has the ability to keep you warm when it gets cold. I wore this coat in London, Paris, Edinburgh, and Cardiff and it protected me for all the different types of weather I encountered.
Never in my life did I think I would be blogging about a pair of Skechers, yet here I am. My mom convinced me to bring these shoes, and I’m so grateful I did. I was hesitant at first, but they grew on me. I had intended on packing my new Nikes, but the Skechers just made more sense. They are subtler than the typical tennis shoe, a little more flattering, way more comfortable, and incredibly lightweight. Though they aren’t the most stylish or trendy shoe, they are the best choice when you know you have a lot of walking in your future.
This bag has been such a game changer for me. I bought it with the intention of being my professional bag—the one I would bring to interviews and my new job. It’s genuine leather, big enough for my laptop, and has a zipper and both regular and cross body straps. I ended up using this bag as one of my carry-ons for the trip, and it did a great job. It carried all of my belongings and was small and light enough to be dragged from place to place.
