Jacket: Loft, old
Shoes: Dolce Vita
I'm so excited! As you read this I'm on my way to the airport to Hong Kong for my friend's wedding and then onto a week in Vietnam. I've never been to Vietnam before so I'm excited an new country. One of my goals is to fill up my passport before it expires, so this trip definitely helps with that and I get the amazing bonus of visiting two culturally-rich destinations with great food!
As a former consultant who was on the road four days a week every week for 2 years, I've got my in-flight essentials down, especially for a 20+ hour flight. No matter how long the flight, I can't travel in tight pants, so my new boyfriend jeans (that I wear all the time!) are perfect. Layering is also key as I'm always freezing, but want the ability to take off a layer if I got hot (almost never happens...). Finally, my scarf can double as a blanket (did I mention I get cold?) so I don't have to use one of the airplane blankets.
My in-flight essentials include socks for my cold feet, my neck pillow and eye mask so I can fall asleep, my iPad for magazines, books, and podcasts, lots of water (and some lotion) to battle dehydration, and healthy snacks to supplement the airplane food.
What are you travel essentials?
I will try to update from the road and share parts of my trip with you guys!
