Happy Friday! As you’ve probably seen from my Instagram, I have been doing a lot of traveling. Last week I was at New York Fashion Week, today I’m in Austin for a travel conference, the next two weeks I’ll be in Africa, and then I’m taking a trip to Montana in October. WHEW! All of this travel has inspired me to share some travel necessities with you today. I have included luggage at different price ranges, duffel bags for weekend trips, chic backpacks to make navigating the airport easier, and much more!

This is my favorite duffel bag. It comes in two colors and is a lot bigger than it looks. You can pack enough for three or four days in this bag. Promise!

Looking for a stylish carry-on? This leather trim rolling carry-on is durable, lightweight, and really gorgeous. And it comes in five colors. If you’re looking for something less expensive, this one is pretty and comes in three colors.

I included some items you might not think of until last-minute too. Like travel sized refillable tubes. There’s nothing worse than having you’re nice, expensive moisturizer taken at security. Believe me, it’s happened before. If you don’t already have travel sized cosmetics, make sure to get TSA approved carry-on tubes so you can fill them up with what you’ll need for your trip.

Speaking of cosmetics, travel light when it comes to makeup. I like this Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look Palette. It includes makeup for your eyes and face. This way it’s all in one. Brilliant!

Another item to make packing easier…packing cubes. They save so much space and are a necessity if you’re packing for a long trip. I’m using them for my trip to Africa and you will see that next week.

Make sure you have a comfortable travel outfit picked out. I like to wear my comfiest jeans and a sweater. If it’s too hot to wear a sweater, throw on a casual dress or a tee. But take a light jacket or cardigan to keep you warm just in case. I prefer to wear sneakers or slip-ons when traveling but you could also wear flip-flops.

Do you have any trips coming up? Let me know in the comments below. Have a great weekend!
