Now that it's officially summer and Fourth of July weekend is just around the corner, we thought we'd give you a blog featuring some of our favorite and most necessary travel essentials! No matter the destination, these 10 must-have items are always in our suitcase!
1. A Chic Travel Outfit
A great pair of jeans
and a basic tee
are an easy, yet classic go-to. Throw on a fedora, a comfortable shoe and some sunnies for that extra cool factor-- you'll look like a total jetsetter.
2. A Versatile Bag
The perfect bag
can easily transition from day to night and will go with every outfit in your suitcase.
3. A Killer Pair of Sunglasses
We never leave the house without ours, rain or shine. Sunnies not only protect your eyes from harmful rays, but also keeps you looking like a cool local, never a tourist.
4. The Little Black Dress
5. Moisturizing Spray
We can't get enough of this face mist by Herbivore Botanicals. Made with hydrating coconut water in a delightfully light rose hibiscus scent, this is always in our bag for those long, dry plane rides. A spritz in the airport when you get off the plane and your face looks and feels instantly refreshed.

6. A Classic Button-Up
A good button-up shirt
can take you anywhere. A day roaming the streets of a new city or to dinner at a cafe beach side, button-ups are basically a neutral when it comes to tops. Pair with denim shorts and flip flops or a sleek trouser and heels, you can't go wrong!
7. A Comfortable Pair of Shoes
Our go-to is definitely the French-made, leather K Jacques sandal
. With so many different styles, there is a pair for everyone. These sandals will easily take you on an entire day of walking and into the evening. Originally made for sailors, these beautiess will last you a lifetime-- and you'll be glad they did.
8. A Great Pair of Denim
Is there anything we love more than a fantastic jean
? Jeans are always in our suitcase because they go with everything and they can be dressed up or down with the change of a few accessories. Whether your fave pair is a skinny, a slouchy boyfriend or a trendy flare, make sure to bring a pair or two on your next trip for an easy outfit.
9. A Statement Accessory
We love the idea of a belt as a "wear-with-all" accessory, especially one with edgy studding or bohemian turquoise. A belt instantly takes a tee and jeans from being two basics to being an ensemble. And with a stand out belt, who needs jewelry? That's smart packing.
10. A Light Jacket
No matter your destination, we always bring a jacket while traveling. Wear it on the plane over your tee and jeans or drape it over your shoulder on a chilly night on the way to dinner. You never know what the weather is going to do and although your hubby's jacket is always nice, ours are way cuter.
