Summer holidays are here, and plans to jet set off for some rest and relaxation are in the works; be it for a vacation, a destination wedding or just a weekend away.
Travelling can be very unglamorous. With the long hours, exhaustion and dehydration, getting to your destination looking chic can be tough. Planning is crucial in making travel as stress free as possible. From stylish sunnies to the best sunscreen, here are a few of the things I’ll be packing in my carry on to ensure a fun and relaxing vacation.
Having a good carry all bag is essential on a long trip. My favourites are the ones that have a compartment for your laptop + ipad, with plenty of pockets to keep everything organized. Michael Kors makes a great Mac Book Tote, as does DVF which also comes in matching luggage.
I like my beach bag to be foldable, so I can roll it up in my luggage and unpack it at my destination. For my trip, I’m bringing this purple stripe tote from Indigo.
Once you reached your sunny destination, a summer hat is required. I love this straw hat from JCrew – beach ready and oh so chic.
Sunnies are a summer staple. I’m loving these Karen Walker sunglasses in an avant garde take on a classic round shape.
Available from VU Sunglass.
Airplanes, long travel days, and new climates can challenge your immune system. Taking an Emergen-C helps you stay healthy & hydrated.
One of my favourite things about being on vacation is catching up on my reading list. I can’t wait to dive into Aliza Licht aka DKNY PR Girl’s book, Leave Your Mark. Available at Chapters Indigo.
Summer time calls for sunscreen. Avene’s is by far the best and easiest to apply sunscreen I’ve tried. The ultra-light, alcohol-free non-aerosol spray is packaged to deliver 360 degree controlled application (even upside down) while providing intensive 24 hour hydration. This quick-absorbing lotion leaves a sheer finish with maximum water resistance (for up to 80 minutes) for the ultimate invisible protection.
Whatever you do this summer, whether you are globetrotting, road tripping or enjoying a simply staycation, have fun and enjoy the sunshine!
