Terese herself travels extensively, often internationally, and these few items are always included in her travel bag.
Whether it’s a breezy night or the AC is blasting in the airport having a jacket to fall back on is a must! Try to bring something semi light weight. That way you aren’t carrying around a heavy piece but it still offers that extra layer of warmth.
Stylish and comfortable sweatshirt
Most times we go on vacation to relax right? So don’t forget to bring some of your most comfortable pieces to relax in! You will thank yourself for packing that sweatshirt during your morning hike or at night around the campfire.
Easy care and wear dress
Having a no fuss dress you love to wear is an important part of your travel capsule! Wear it around town and out to lunch or maybe dress it up for dinner. Either way, not having to coordinate a top and a bottom makes life so much easier!
Pull on style jeans
What’s worse then sitting on the plane with the button of your pants digging into your stomach? Talk about uncomfortable! Jeans with a flat elastic waistband are a favorite here at the store. They are not only comfortable to sit down in but are also flattering!
Small cross body zip up handbag
Totes are great for traveling through the airport but once get to your destination ditch the big clunky bag for a little one you can sling on! This not only lets you move around better but it keeps your valuables closer to you. Don’t forget to zip your bag up!
WHAT TO PACK, AND WHAT TO WEAR
Packing for a trip is always challenging, especially because you want to arrive at your destination looking stylish, polished and fresh. With thousands of clothing options to select from, how can you be certain that your outfit will look great after a long flight? There are a few fabrics that you should keep in mind, next time you’re shopping or packing for a trip.
Not only will wool keep you warm and toasty in the winter, it’s incredibly wrinkle-resistant, making it a great option if you’re traveling somewhere chilly.
Cool and comfortable even in the hottest, most humid weather. It absorbs perspiration, doesn’t cling to the body, and dries quickly…but it wrinkles! Look for linen blended with easy-care fibers to create a fabric that wrinkles less.
Luxurious yet durable and wrinkle-resistant. It’s insulating and warm yet lightweight. Heavier weight, textured silks, silk knits or “washable silk” have superb travel performance and style. Leave the lightweight, dry-clean only silks at home – they’re high maintenance.
A travel favorite in jeans, t-shirts and turtlenecks; however, these items are more carefree when made of a cotton/polyester or cotton/lycra blend – they’ll resist wrinkling and wash and dry more easily. Wrinkle-resistant finishes applied to cotton also cut down on wrinkling.
This luxury fabric is strong and warm yet lightweight and soft. If it appears wrinkly when taken out of your suitcase, just hang it or lay it flat for a bit. The creases should release.
