After a lengthy pandemic-induced hiatus from air travel, we have had several occasions to book tickets in the past few weeks. It feels good to be exploring and visiting friends again. Below, I have compiled a list of travel essentials for chic, comfortable, and organized transit while away from home.

  1. Own and love the Paravel weekender in the domino color. Feel so chic when traveling with it. Just wish it was a tad roomier. It can be tough to squeeze extra in and usually have to pull everything out in order to get to something.. or maybe I need to pack less! I’ve found Container Store to be a great source for travel essentials you didn’t know you needed until you do, ha! Toilet seat covers, travel power cord w/usb ports, razor case, etc.

    1. Oo, I so agree — very chic. I have their large Cabana tote in the same color pattern and feel so pulled together when I take it with me anywhere. I like the open top for car travel, especially with kids, so I’m not rifling through a zipped bag — I can arrange my pouches so I can find everything easily. Ha! Pouch life.

      Thanks for the tip on Container Store! I haven’t been in there in awhile but remember always picking up goodies in the little display sections by the checkout lines!
