Over the last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to do quite a bit of traveling. When I was a kid, in college and in our early married years, we rarely traveled. If we did it was a road trip and while I do love a good road trip, flying sure is nice. Since starting our own business Soren and I have done quite a bit of traveling together for work- from Milan, Italy to New York City and more. We’ve gone on photo shoots to Palm Springs, Montana, and Charleston. Today I’m sharing my list of travel essentials and favorite products that I love for travel as we’ve roamed the globe. If it says anything about how much we travel, I now keep a travel size toiletry bag packed and in fact, we’re taking the kids on a trip this week!

First up, travel style. I’ve learned that I love to travel in comfort, but it’s still gotta feel cute. Usually that means leggings or joggers- sometimes jeans- and layers. I always get hot and cold when I fly so something like a cardigan or a pullover is helpful to add or remove layers. I know that some women like to use a giant scarf or travel shawl, but if I have kids with me that feels impractical to keep on while bustling through the airport.
As far as shoes go it’s almost only Birkenstocks or sneakers. Depending on if I have a cold or warm weather destination, Birks and sneaks allow me to hustle, get through security easily and then bring a pair of shoes along on the trip that I’ll wear again.
Here are a few travel outfits I’ve worn on trips this last year.
And last but not least, beauty! I’m not going to write a big ole travel beauty routine for you. I don’t have a skin care regimen for the plane ride, but I do have a few products that I for sure keep in my carry on or personal item. They will save me if my luggage gets lost and help with a refresh after the plane ride.
CONCEALER– This one is a fave for a quick refresh.
HAND LOTION– My hands dry out when I travel and this one is a great moisturizer.
