Luxe Travel: Perfected

Written by Ashley

If you don’t want to skimp on carry-on essentials – our list of luxe travel tools will keep you cozy.

While the blustery winter ‘breeze’ woos me in to a state of hot cocoa-coma, I can’t help but think my March travel plans, hopping the pond to Europe with one of my besties. I haven’t been out of the country since 2006 — with my flights only being 4 hours tops within the past couple of years. The thought of any more giving me anxiety – so planning my

Tory Burch Travel Sock: As the story goes… Tory Burch was tweeting while at the airport (duh), and inquired regarding a line of travel socks to create the barrier of luxury between you & gross travel germs. The tweeps overwhelmingly supported the idea, and the rest is history. Complete with a chic silky travel bag, perfect for your carry on, no-slip soles so you don’t bust your ass going through security & a cozy 100% wool snug fit, you’ll be cruising in comfort at any altitude. TIP: the thick, snug fit are perfect for your favorite Saturday night pair of ankle booties. $48 [buy]

Sir Alistair Rai Tri Mantra Love Wrap: The 100% viscose promotes 3 mantras that we should live by in every-day life — even more so when on the road: Peace. Love. Karma. A chic scarf in any weather, a comfy wrap/blanketon a chilly plane, an adorable sarong for a beachy getaway. An overall MUST have for any trip. TIP: spray with your favorite light scent while you pack. The pleasant scent will keep you calm & collected in a hectic state of travel. $145  [buy]

YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch: Not only is this baby travel friendly & a luxe as luxe gets — but the radiant benefits of swiping a couple of clicks on from this pen will make dark circles disappear right before your puffy-traveled eyes. TIP: smooth some on your browbones, cheekbones & lips, while you’re at it.  Luminous Radiance is a universal shade for all – but make sure to go lighter on any tinted shades, for a highlighted youthful look. $40 [buy]

Brookstone Sound Isolating Earbuds with Retractable Tangle-free Cable: Yes, I know your earbuds came with your iPod. Honestly, though, you haven’t listened to music until you’ve listened to them on sound isolating earbuds. While these buds isolate outside noise (by noise, I mean that dude snoring in the row behind you mixed with the whirr of the plane engines putting you in to a state of mild panic) the retractable cables won’t get all wrapped around your hair-brush in your purse. TIP:  These are an EVERYDAY neccessity for me. Keep them attached inconspicuously to your iPhone or iPod at all times… trust me. My purse is a much happier & clutter-free place with this genius piece of machinery tucked neatly away inside.  $35 [buy]
