Three Accessories to Travel in Style

Call it vanity, but sometimes you just feel better when you don’t arrive to a destination with red eyes, crazy hair and wrinkly clothes. It’s happened to me too many times because I always put off purchasing these three accessories, claiming I could never find any that I loved. Well, times have changed and I am now fully prepared to arrive looking at least a little better than I used to.

The Sunglasses

Have you ever woken up and stumbled out of an airplane in the middle of the night, far earlier than any human should be awake with swollen, bloodshot eyes, eyelashes stuck together with mascara and ringed black after having your face smushed awkwardly against the airplane window? I have. Prevent this by not wearing mascara or hide the mess with a trusty set of massive sunglasses that hide not only your eyes and their dark bags but half your face as well! Be picky when finding the perfect frames to match your face shape, the perfect color to match your skin tone/that won’t go out of style (a classic black is usually my choice, but I found some dark brown ones that I love just as much). If you choose carefully, these might just stay in your wardrobe for years to come and travel with you all around the globe.

The Hat

It has taken me 23 years to find a hat. I found a cute little fedora once that was sadly distorted in the rain, never to be the same shape again. I finally found a hat that I think could become my travel staple. It’s black, wide rimmed, not too big or small and fits my head perfectly. With hair that reacts to humidity the same way Monica’s did in Friends, I am definitely going to need it.

The Poncho

This gem that I found recently is absolutely perfect for traveling. This baby is so functional I can use it as three different things: a poncho/sweater over a tank, a scarf, and a blanket for when it gets chilly on the plane. I’m pretty sure if worse comes to worse, I can also bunch it up and use it as a makeshift pillow.
