. . .traveling is probably one of my favorite things. who doesn't love going to new and exciting places? and even if its going somewhere you've been to every year, i still love it. as i have traveled more long distances in the past two years, i've become aware of many travel necessities. so i decided to put together a polyvore set with my favorite travel accessories that help with the long haul.
1. Passport Cover If you are like me, you don't pay much attention to where you throw your passport in your carry-on, just as long as you know its in there. This past Christmas my boyfriend's mom bought me the most gorgeous passport cover from Aspinal of London (same as the picture) and I love it. Covers not only make your passport look savvy chic but also keep it from bending and getting dirty.
Must Have: Aspinal of London Passport Cover

2. Lots of Magazines Obviously this is a no-brainer. Although long haul flights have plenty of movies to choose from, there are only so many movies you can watch in one flight before your eyes start to strain. Do a little reading while you are on your next flight, whether it be a magazine or even a book.
Must Have: Elle, Vogue, Vanity Fair, and a good book

3. Cosmetics Bag Flights overseas can make you look, well not your best. A small makeup bag is key to keeping products in your carry-on that you can easily find to freshen up with (including the MUST have toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant)
Must Have: Tory Burch Poppy Nylon Cosmetics Bag

4. iPad Case If you have an iPad it is essential to keep it from getting scratched and dirty. Just throwing it in your carry-on doesn't protect it from anything. Get a case before your next travels if you don't already have one. This goes for laptops too!
Must Have: Prada Saffiano iPad Travel Case

5. Comfortable Flats You may go to the airport in heels, but trust me, you won't want to wear those for an 8 hour flight. Pack a good pair of flats that are comfortable to wear and easy to slip on and off. You don't want to be walking into the bathroom in just your socks or bare feet.
Must Have: Tory Burch Cheetah Print Reva Flat

6. A Big and Sturdy Carry-On If there is anything I know its that you need a STURDY carry-on. On my recent flights to and from London (especially from) you will find yourself cramming things in at the last minute and if your bag can't handle it, you will be one sorry girl at the airport.
Must Have: Prada Large Saffiano Luxe Shopper

7. Lightweight Scarf Totally a necessity. Even if you are traveling to Mexico, you will be happy you have a scarf with you. If it's too hot to wear to the airport, then just throw it in your carry-on. Scarfs are great to double up for a pillow (or to cover the pillows the airline provides), wrap around your shoulders for extra warmth or just to have on your lap.
Must Have: Burberry Cotton Large Check Scarf

Do you have a pair of Tory Burch flats? I've heard they are super comfortable once you break them in, but I'm still skeptical. I've yet to own a pair of flats that don't make my feet bleed :(

Hey! I love Tory Burch flats but they can be tricky. I usually wear a bandaid on my heel where it hits for the first couple times until I break them in and then they are fine! I've walked miles in my Tory Buch flats throughout London when I lived there and they would hurt a little but bit they were brand new also....it's just breaking them in! (I don't think they will make your feet bleed though)
