This is a guest post from Gigi McFadden of Fashology. Gigi and I met at a Boston Bloggers event this fall, and since I am anything but fashionable, I asked her to share her favorite travel items.
One can learn so much thru traveling; wherever you go is an adventure. When exploring, it is important to be comfortable and practical, this doesn’t mean you can’t also be fashionable. Here are my three favorite items to keep you functional and fabulous.
1. Hanging Organizer
This piece is a travel necessity. It helps keep your toiletries and beauty supplies together. There is nothing worse than being disorganized while traveling and this will definitely keep you together. This one in particular is Vera Bradley, available in other prints or solids.
Backpacks are the new handbags. Not only are they easy to carry but allow for hands-free adventuring. To ensure fabulous travels I would suggest this Wolfepack by Gina deWolfe. This genuine leather bag is chic, functional and versatile. You can bring it on your next trip to give you an effortless look, or carry it every day for the same effect.
3. A Little Black Dress
This wardrobe staple is also an essential for traveling. Not only can you dress up your simple “LBD,” you can dress it down. I like to pair mine with Chuck Taylors to explore my favorite cities, like Lisbon. I would suggest an easy-to-pack little black dress. This dress is a wrinkle free blend, literally I can role this dress into a ball and it won’t wrinkle. This dress is by Sympli the Best a Canadian line. You can wear sneakers with your dress by day and heels for the evening. AND it is so easy to accessorize with scarves or jewelry.
These are my top picks for an instant chic travel wardrobe. I hope this helps you pack for your next adventure. Thank you for reading!
