Traveling Basics

Sunnies, Striped Tank, Scarf, Passport Holder, Flats, Cross body BagSkirt, Watch, Lip Balm, iphone Case, Camera, Polka Dot Bag

With my upcoming honeymoon to Italy, I have been slowly trying to pick up basics that will be easy to travel with and layer. A simple striped tank (or t-shirt) is always the first thing I go to. I love stripes because they go with almost anything. They look cute  with jeans, you can dress them up with jewelry or wear them with a print! A cross body bag, some flats, a watch, scarf, passport holder, sunnies and a camera are all must-haves that you should not leave home without!

A scarf, cross-body bag and flats are my absolute musts when I travel! I am still looking for a passport holder though, it really is an essential traveling basic. Great picks and that turquoise camera is so cute!

Flats or sturdy sandals are a must for Italy-those cobblestones will ruin a lot of heels! I love that scarf, a perfect summer layering piece!

Just got home from a 2 week trip through Italy – these things are all what I totally wish I had when I was there. One weird factor that I forgot to consider before I got there? CRAZY HUMIDITY during the summer – Linen does good things as a breathable fabric, and a good hair serum to de-frizz cannot be overemphasized! So excited for you, and adamantly love your blog.

Cheers!

You'll never wear half of the stuff you pack, trust me. I packed as much as possible into a carryon for my honeymoon in Maui and filled the checked bag with the rest!! Have fun! x
