Black Bride Editor’s Picks: Travel Essentials! –

Kate Spade Swimsuit: One thing that is very important to me is, the beach! I love beach getaways. What’s not to love about swimwear with underwire and adjustable straps? Its the perfect suit for me. I love the rose fabric and smocked one-piece design with adjustable straps. Pairing this swimsuit with a little black skirt or a pair of shorts is perfect. I love packing pieces that can perform double duty.

French Laundry Home, Striped Travel Bags: I am in love with these adorable vintage travel bags. Travels bags for dirty laundry, shoes, and baubles are the perfect way to keep your luggage organized and your essentials separated. It also avoids digging around in your luggage when things are clearly labeled. I recommend more than one set for sure because there will be more than one pair of shoes in my luggage! Ha!

Lighted Travel Mirror: The lighting in hotel rooms isn’t always ideal for applying makeup. I love this compact lighted travel mirror. It folds flat and it’s compact and perfect for packing.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love a good getaway, especially if it requires me getting on a plane. I love a good travel tote that can fit everything and anything I need for my journey. The Jack Spade tote is the perfect catch all canvas bag that is both durable and chic. When I travel I also want to make sure that I take care of my skin. I have found the perfect all-over moisturizer to combat dry winter skin. Emmaus Softness Bliss body lotion is really softness in a bottle. Now that the weather is warming up, you don't want to have to worry about dry cracked skin, and this all natural lotion that combines the goodness of Baobab, Sunflower, Coconut, and Grape Seed Oil, smooths away dry, dead skin and leaves you with a gorgeous glow, perfect for a mini dress. And what's a mini dress without the perfect pair of heels? I love strap up sandals, these sassy shoes by Vince Camuto are perfect to wear with a dress or shorts and you can dress them up or keep it casual. Best of all you wont have to pack two pairs of shoes to get two great looks!

When traveling to a beach or a warm destination, I always like to have my travel documents printed and organized, as I am slightly OCD about those type of things, so I love these GiGi New York Travel Accessories to keep me organized. I also have to have a super cute pair of sunglasses and a pair of wedges that can take me from day to night. I hate packing 20 pairs of shoes, so I always try to pack items that can be mixed and matched through out my trip. Traveling is hard enough so you should always look amazing, be organized and keep excess stuff to a minimum!
