10 Things I Can't Travel Without {Collab with Riley of Northern Prepster}

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

I am so excited to be teaming up with my friend Riley of Northern Prepster today to share with y'all 10 Things We Can't Travel Without. I have a little more than a week until my Spring Break begins and so I currently have everything travel related on my mind (find out where I'll be traveling to in this post)! 

1. Sunglasses

After forgetting them for a few vacations, I always make sure to pack a pair! Be sure to bring a pair especially if you're heading to the beach!

2. A Shift Dress (or Two!)

Lilly Pulitzer shift dresses are my favorite in the spring and summer and they are perfect for vacations! I love that they're perfect for everything from a casual dinner at the beach to a graduation, making them a travel essential for me!

3. A Wristlet

I always keep my wristlet with me as I keep my ID in mine but they are so handy to have on vacation as you can throw in your hotel room card, cash, and your phone (in the pocket) and keep it in your beach bag rather than having to carry a wallet around with you!

4. Hair Towel

I always use a hair towel to help dry my hair at home and I can't tell y'all how many times I have forgotten to bring it along with me on trips! They are so helpful in drying your hair so I would definitely pick one up at Target (where mine is from) and bring it with you!

5. Headphones

An absolute necessity for the actual trip to your destination! While in the car or plane, I like to listen to music or watch movies, so don't forget your headphones! For more carry-on essentials, read this post from last spring!

6. A Large Tote Bag

I always use this large tote bag as a carry on bag so I can fit all of my stuff for the trip as well as use it as a beach bag once I get to my destination!

7. Dry Shampoo

I am typically so much lazier about my hair routine while on vacation so dry shampoo is an essential! This Moroccanoil dry shampoo is amazing and they make versions for both light and dark colored hair!

8. Cute Sandals

I live in my Jack Rogers and Tory Burch Millers in the summer so be sure to pack a pair! They're so versatile and will go with everything you pack!

9. A Vineyard Vines Shep Shirt

No matter what the weather of your destination, I would always bring a shep shirt or another pullover. They're great for mountain trips during the day or even if you're at the beach, to wear at night when it is a bit chiller or if you want to escape from bugs while making s'mores!

10. A Bikini

Seemingly obvious but something you don't want to forget (especially for a beach or lake vacay!). I would also bring one along even if you think you wouldn't need it (aka a trip to the mountains) as you never know if you may spontaneously want to go somewhere where you need a swimsuit!

What can you not travel without? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I always forget to bring sunglasses too, but they are definitely an essential!

    1. Haha, and always on the trips where you need them the most! I now never leave the house without sunglasses, you never know when you need them ;)

  2. I love traveling with dry shampoo too! It is a life savior!

  3. What a lovely list:)
    I pack the same items apart from the hair towel.
    I will be googling it now straight away :)
    Also a charger battery bank is great :)

    1. Thank you! They're amazing, they see them at Target!

  4. Interesting picks! Thanks for sharing!-Katelyn
