Carry on Essentials + Airport Outfit Ideas

FullSizeRender (1).jpg

Hi everyone! In this post I am sharing my carry on essentials and some airport outfit ideas! I travel multiple times a year because of dance competitions and family vacations, so I feel like I have both of these things down! I have first created the most essential list of things you will need in order to survive a long flight.

I also always use a backpack instead of a purse because then you are hands free. You can find mine here.

Carry on essentials:

-WATER: bought in airport

-ELECTRONICS: how could you last a whole flight without netflix?

-CHARGERS: because when your electronics die, its the worse

-HEADPHONES: I recommend noise canceling headphones but I usually don't use those

-SLEEP MASK: to block out that person next to you who is using the reading light when you are trying to sleep

-MAKEUP BAG: lip balm, lotion, hand sanitizer, deodorant, makeup for touch ups

-SOCKS: planes can be freezing so these are a must

-NECK PILLOW: a life saver when trying to sleep

-WET WIPES: planes are gross, so they perfect to use to wipe down your surroundings

-GUM: oldest trick in the book for the high elevation

-SNACKS: because airplane food is gross

-COMFY JACKET: doubles as a blanket or pillow too

-FACE WIPES: can be used just on your face or to wipe your body too

-TRAVEL WALLET: the more compact the better, or one with a passport holder in it

-BOOKS: for when you can't find a good movie

-BRUSH: because no one wants bed head

 

Now for the outfits! The key when traveling is to obviously be comfy. But, I am the type of person who always has to be looking cute no matter the circumstance and the airport is no exception. I put together a couple outfit ideas for you guys to take inspiration off of. The key to outfits when traveling it to dress with layers. Starting with the basics and then adding more when necessary is my number one tip.

Outfit 1: For the warmer flights

 Whenever I fly, I put my hair up in braids so when I get to my destination, I can take them out and have beach waves for the day.

 I always either have a jacket around my waist or in my carry on, just in case it gets cold.

Outfit 2: For the colder flights

 In this look, I also added a jacket because it gets super cold on flights.

Currently, I am at the airport getting ready to go on a flight to London! I am going to London and Paris on this trip and I am super excited because I have never been before. I'm going to be documenting all of my travels in upcoming blog posts so be ready for those! I hope everyone enjoyed this post! Like and comment if you did!
