Sale PSA: The classic Theory “Clairene” double faced coat/jacket in charcoal, now 40% off (I dithered over this all weekend and now my size sold out), this Chinti and Parker cashmere star print hoodie (I just ordered, couldn’t resist), now 40% off, a striking fuchsia cashmere sweater from Theory, now 40% off (also love this long duster cardigan, now 60% off, which keeps coming in and out of stock), and a fun pink/red pull through fox scarf from Charlotte Simone (I like the look of it just hanging around your neck loose), now under $150.
Today I thought I would share some of my favorite travel accessories. I’ve had quite a few requests for this post and even though I haven’t traveled anywhere for a while and in fact feel quite like a prisoner, I’ve discovered a few great items so thought it was time to share. Plus, a lot of these items are also great in a big tote, or diaper bag, and like I said…I really do have a few new favorites. Let’s go!
Silicon travel tubes. This has been my newest and greatest discovery. Do you have a lotion/cream/shampoo that you love that you have been trying to find a travel size of, or painstakingly squeezing into the tiny hole of some stolen hotel container? And then you get to your destination and something has leaked everywhere but you can’t quite figure what is what? These are for you. I’m obsessed with them. Super easy to use, never leak, big opening so you can easily get your toiletries in, easy to clean. I bought 2, and then 4 more because I was worried they would one day be discontinued.
These come in two sizes (mine are the smaller). I’ve even put oils in mine, with no leaking. LOVE!
LeSportsac pouches. If you need just one zip pouch in your tote, I’d probably recommend LeSportsac, and especially the one I have above – the triple zip, which fits all sorts of misc items. I really love LeSportsac and sometimes wonder if I’m the only one, but then I go to Hawaii and see it a lot. Excellent, affordable, tons of options, adorable collaborations.
Pod holder. Are you ready for this one? I’m really excited about it, I feel like it’s my personal discovery and I feel very clever for having found this one. These pacifier holders are great for yes, pacifiers, but also tons of other things (so don’t click away yet, my well dressed childless friends). I use mine for everything ranging from keys, to headphones, to misc hair ties and more. A great small size for bags and anyone looking for a “little” useful pouch. And only $12.
Cashmere blanket. I know this sort of item is kind of the opposite of the pod holder above; aka not that practical and quite expensive, but I really have a thing from this Chinti & Parker one. I was waiting and waiting to get it during markdown and it stayed full price. Why didn’t it go on sale? It’s been MONTHS! Will it ever?
Packing cubes. I have three sets of these. OK they aren’t the most beautiful but you will be hard pressed to find any better option that’s better designed and at such a great price. I passed by a knitting store yesterday and they had these nice looking colorful mesh pouches (anyone who has flown United for a while, they were kind of like the mesh ones they used to give out in business class before they stopped, much to my chagrin). Anyway, they had these packs of 3 pouches and I thought they looked good as a packing option so I went in and then found out they were $78. What! I admit I was in a bougie city but still. So I scuttled away and really what did I need those for? I already have some great ones.
Amazon also makes a version, by the way.
