Carry-On Essentials

Vacation time! Trying to keep it light with just my travel essentials. To become a more efficient and smarter traveler is the goal. It starts with a carry- on suitcase. One of my favorite gifts that I have received, a RIMOWA roller. It effortlessly rolls along with plenty of space for a weekend getaway or simply to carry all your airplane requirements. No longer do I carry multiple bags or anything on my shoulders with the exception of a crossbody bag for easy access to my wallet and passport. All the extras tuck neatly into the roller.

My on-board essentials:

iPad fully loaded with movies and series for both flights. Big Little Lies is top of the list.

Noise cancelling headphones from B&W. A fab and useful holiday gift I received. Headphones is something I would never purchase for myself. I feel a bit spoiled with them but they make a huge difference.

Compression socks are a game changer. A gift to your legs! No more swelling. Your legs and feet feel 100% when you reach your destination. I am trying out COMRAD. I’ve been rocking some sexy CVS Pharmacy socks. I am ready for a stylish upgrade. Packing my Nike slides for arrival.

Hand sanitizing wipes, always. Super handy for hands as well as giving everything a quick wipe down. Airports + planes are pretty gross.

For the face: Jet Lag Mask from SUMMER FRIDAYS. Can’t wait to give this new product a try. My skin always feels dry when I travel so perhaps this will do the trick. Always nice to have a lippy on hand. I like Aquaphor. Lots of water before, during, and after flight.

Clothes: Always a sweatshirt + large scarf to wrap. Dark colors in the event of a spill.

What you don’t see that has space in the RIMOWA: the newest Vogue, unsalted nuts, a take away salad or sandwich that from my local bakery to eat on the plane, phone charger, tissues, Advil, and a deck of cards to play with my son.

Happy Summer!

The Ember Moc

Ember Colors

Oh Yeah, it is a fall Sunday and it’s a sweats kinda of day.  isostilo is thinking about this new release from Teva.   A cozy pull on and maybe just the hippest slipper like shoe armed with a sole for your next trip anywhere.  A women’s and men’s mocs/ slipper called the Ember Moc.  They come in a selection of fun fall colors that will having you contemplating a purchase for yourself or better yet to gift.  A sleeping bag for your foot, say no more.

The Embers are one of those items that you may not feel you need till you own them.  Stepping out on a crisp morning or running out to grab something from your car, then you have that moment of I LOVE THESE.  They seem like a perfect lounge shoe and I think I want them or are they too campy?  But they are certainly an alternative to other slippers out there.  Add these to isostilo’s previous post, Weekend Ready. Teva

Got You Covered, Fedora Style

Dune Fedora

Love this summer travel hat from Tracy Watts.  A foldable hat that you can tuck into its sweet travel bag.  Besides that fact, you can wear it with everything and you can pack it in your suitcase!  On a long haul flight, the last thing you want to do is guard your straw hat from getting crushed.  The Dune Asymmetrical Fedora comes in a natural color with white, melon, or blue stitching.  They are handmade.  The raw edging is perfection!
