Travel Style

i’m heading out to North Carolina today to visit with my sister and her family for a long weekend. i’ve been traveling quite a bit more than usual lately, so i’ve finally mastered the best travel outfit. i like to stick to comfortable basics that can be layered – i always get so cold on airplanes. even in the summer, i find myself bringing a heavy sweater and scarf on planes because i like to bundle up and stay cozy. since i usually check my bag, i like to use a bigger tote bag that can hold my small purse, iPad, water bottle, and anything else i want to bring on the plane with me. i don’t like lugging multiple bags around the airport, so a bigger tote that can fit everything in one is key! 

arguably the most important part is footwear. i’m a sneakers girl, so this one is a no-brainer for me. plus, wearing my sneakers allows for more room to pack things in my suitcase, since they’re not taking up space in there. 
finally, a little lip tint or blush can go a long way! my lips get dry and i tend to feel kind of scuzzy after getting off a plane, so a little lip tint helps me to feel more pulled together before i get to my final destination.

    Thank you so much for these tips! I've been looking for a good airplane bag. If there's time in NC, it would be great to see a sister 'scope with you and Kate! If it doesn't happen, that's perfectly fine, hope you have a great time!

    I definitely like to be cosy during a flight and put shorts or something in my bag for once we arrive, I definitely agree a trainers girl through and through and it definitely saves room! I love how you used the word scuzzy in this post, i love it! I hope you have a lovely time with your sister and her family!

    • Me too! They're super comfy and I like the extra bulkiness to keep warm 🙂

  6. I just love this whole collection. Stripes are always in fashion. I want to ask what is your bag colour. Is this baby pink. I want to buy a designer bag of this colour.
