Traveling as often as I do, I’ve come across my fair share of airport do’s and airport don’ts. Everything from packing to navigating my way through the LAX terminals is like second nature to me! So if you’re going to be traveling this summer, be sure to follow my Jet Setter Check List:
1. Linen Pants
Airport fashion can be tricky. You want to be comfortable, but you still want to look chic, right? That’s where these amazing linen pants (similar here!) come in. They’re super comfortable and even if they look wrinkled after your long flight, it still aligns with the aesthetic of the fabric! I snatched these up the last time I was in France for the Cannes Film Festival, and I wish I bought two!
2. Easy On & Off Flats
You might recognize these Derek Lam flats because I’ve worn them like crazy recently. I never travel without them! Getting through security quickly and efficiently is very important to me, so having shoes I can just slip on and off make all the difference. But make sure you carry a pair of comfy socks for your flight!
3. Pack Light
If it’s possible- try to pack everything in your carry-on! It will save you tons of time, and help you avoid that mini heart attack at the baggage claim when you don’t see your luggage right away. And it will help you completely avoid your airline losing your suitcase and spending 5 days in Paris with no luggage.
4. Put it in a Pouch
This tip is universal, whether you’re traveling or not. I LOVE pouches. They help you keep everything organized, especially if you’re carrying a large bag. I have a pouch for my travel makeup, for my travel skincare and everything in between! Be sure to check out my in-flight skincare routine here!
5. Layer Up
The weather is hot, the airport is cold and the plane? Usually freezing. Whenever I travel, I try to dress in layers. This Collette top is perfect for throwing a comfy sweater or scarf over. I love to travel with a comfy scarf because it can double as a blanket! This one here is a life saver, plus it’s on mega sale!
So are you ready to dress like a jet setter? Let me know if you have any other travel tips in the comments below, I’d love to hear them! And be sure to follow along on snapchat and Instagram to see my team and I in Paris! And if you’re in the States, Happy 4th of July!
