We’re incredibly blessed to live in a day and age where traveling on a whim is extraordinarily accessible. Whether you’re planning your dream trip to Europe, or just an impromptu getaway with your girls, you need to be prepared so that your travel can be as quick, easy, and chic as possible (like the jet-setter we all dream of being, of course). Even if not all off us can effortlessly wear pumps on a plane like Miranda Kerr or Candice Swanepoel (seriously, why would you ever?), we’re still totally able to make our airport experience as casual as possible. Here are five travel essentials that are sure to enhance your journey:
1. Floribunda Backup iPhone Battery
This is an extremely handy (and totally adorable) travel accessory to tuck away into your purse. Small and extremely portable, this spare battery can restore your phone’s battery to half its capacity in a flash. This gadget is totally ideal for road trips when you and your man are brawling over the car charger (or when you and your girlfriends are lost and in need of Google Maps!
2. The Perfect Travel Jewelry Book – Reed and Barton
We all try to pack light, but jewelry options are simply not something to forego, considering how RADICALLY your outfit can change with just a few simple add-ons. Packing your jewelry can be a serious pain, and untangling it all on your hotel bed is about a hundred times worse. This cute jewelry book makes sure everything has a place, to help get your gems to their destination, tangle-free.
3. Lavender Hand Sanitizer Spray
Traveling can be gross. And, let’s be real, we know that not everybody washes their hands at the airport. Keep your hands germ-free by always keeping a travel sized hand sanitizer at the ready.
4. Speakeasy Hidden Pocket Scarves
Okay, so maybe this one isn’t COMPLETELY necessary, but it’s too adorable to pass up. This shops makes their scarves in a number of different colors and patterns, and besides being a neat utility piece, it will instantly upgrade your travel tee, leggings, and Nike’s ensemble. Plus, if you’re anything like me and leave your passport at the Starbucks counter, knowing where your passport is at all times will put your mind at ease.
5. Ultra Mini Travel Steamer
Unless you’re the goddess of all things travel and live in seersucker and jersey, then you know that not all of your clothes will come out of your suitcase unscathed and unaffected from the journey and tight quarters. Bringing this incredibly portable steamer can make sure that your dress for dinner is ready to go from suitcase to dinner wrinkle-free in a matter of minutes.
