Favorite Travel and Big Tote Accessories

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. Continue Reading

How I Travel: The Bag Within a Bag

Today’s post is one that I’ve been meaning to do for a while, sharing how I normally travel with just a handbag/laptop bag, and a carry on suitcase. As many of you know, I absolutely loathe checking luggage (although I know that…


My Biggest Travel Mistakes

I’m very, very near full term now, and one of the things I’m looking forward to after giving birth is traveling again. I pretty much stopped traveling once I reached my third trimester, and I’ve been an insufferable whiner about it.…
