Fashionista Travel Must Have’s

Two of my favorite things: Travel and Fashion.

I must admit, I love certain designers, especially when it comes to shoes.  I have put a list together of some designer items that you will always find in my luggage. You can find some of these items cheaper then those listed below, but I have found these brands to be reliable and durable.


UNIQLO Woman Ultra Light Down Parka

These warm jackets roll up and take up a minimal amount of space in luggage. They are great to have on a chilly day and can be used as another layer under a winter coat. Having the hood gives you a little extra coverage in the rain or snow.

lululemon athletica Workout Attire

I never know when I’m going to have time to hit the gym, go for a walk on the beach or enjoy a physical activity of sorts. Keeping a pair of yoga pants and sneakers is always a must. I love the lululemon Wunder Under Crop III pants. They are neutral in color and very comfortable.


Tory Burch ‘Minnie Travel’ Ballet Flat (Women)

These are great to wear with jeans, capris, dresses or skirts. The color “Light Oak Leather” is neutral and can be worn with just about any color clothing.

Hunter Rain Boots and Warmers

These can be found in my luggage during the winter season and when I fly to Europe. You just never know when you will catch a little rain cloud somewhere in the United Kingdom. I opted for a “short“pair in black, but they come in such fun colors. I found the “short” pairs to be a little easier to walk in than the “tall” pairs.

I also absolutely love the Cable Knit Cuff Welly Boot Socks you can get in “short” or “tall.” I am one of those people that if my feet are cold, I’m miserable. These socks provide a nice extra layer of soft cozy warmth.

Havaianas Flip Flop

These are a must have anytime I’m at a pool or beach. They are also great to wear in hotel showers and to walk around hotel rooms.



Kendra Scott Tessa Stud Earrings

I sure do love accessories. A stylish pair of earrings can dress up a casual outfit. I love sparkle, so these Tessa Gold Stud Earrings in Iridescent Drusy are a staple in my suitcase. You can even throw in a little of your own style by designing you own pair in the Kendra Scott Color Bar.

Longchamp ‘Small Le Pilage’ Tote

They fold up to save space. I have mine in “New Navy,” so that it can be used throughout the year with any outfit.

Ray-Ban “Original Aviator” Sunglasses

I have had these sunglasses for years. They are not too big and provide fantastic UV protection since they are polarized.

Apple Watch

I hate to admit it, but I have become very reliant on my Apple Watch. I constantly use it during workouts and to respond to text messages. It’s nice to just glance at my wrist to see who is calling me if my phone is in my bag. It is also really handy to check the weather in my final destination and to keep up with different time zones.

Do you have any designer items that are absolute must-haves in your luggage?
