If there is a fashion blogger who shops and packs smart, it is Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior Earlier this spring she shared with her Instagram fans how she was only taking a carry-on with “1 blazer, 1 romper, 1 necklace, 1 heel, 1 flat, 1 bikini, 2 tanks, 3 shorts” to her three-day stay in Las Vegas (and she looked amazing), which only proves the point that living ‘edited’ should become one of our closet goals. Now that summer is in full bloom, we’re certainly taking our cue from this SoCal gal’s carry-on must-haves. She spilled the beans and told us she’s taking a few summer trips to New York, Palm Springs, Texas, and potentially Bali, so just image the beautiful imagery that will come out of those. For now, let’s shop.
Long Open Cascade Cardigan
Cozy Cardigan: Call me crazy, but no matter where I'm going and when, I always get cold on flights. Bringing along a cardigan keeps me warm and cozy while I'm in transit.
Berlin Calf Hair Skate Shoe
Stylish Sneakers: I've never been more excited for sneakers to be stylish! They're the perfect shoe for running across an airport to make that connecting flight.
Bondi Striped Tiered Maxi Dress
Maxi: My favorite thing to wear on flights is a loose-fitting maxi dress. It’s comfortable and easy to transition from the plane to party mode!
SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid
I love the texture of this protecting fluid. It feels silky against your face, and it's tiny enough to tuck in your carry on luggage. Bonus: It has SPF!
Dry Texturizing Spray
I'm obsessed with Oribe, and this spray is the perfect pick-me-up for your hair upon arrival.
Pop Geo Reversible Triangle Bikini Top & Tie-Side Swim Bottom
Swimsuit: You don't want to learn this lesson the hard way. If you are traveling somewhere tropical, always carry on your suit in case your checked luggage gets lost.
Cozy Ribbed Bedsocks
Socks: This may sound weird, but socks are my #1 onboard must-have for international flights! When I slip on socks on a flight it instantly makes me feel like I'm snuggled up on my own couch watching a movie.
EPTV Weekend Collection
This is by far my absolute favorite travel set. The smell puts me straight in vacation mode every time!
Rimowa North America
"Salsa" Luggage Collection
Luxe Luggage: If you are a frequent traveler, investing in a good piece of luggage is just as important as investing in a nice handbag. My current favorite carry on trolley is Rimowa. They are sleek, chic and built to last.
Monica Rich Kosann
Hand-Stamped Leather Journal
Journal: Maybe it's the altitude, but being up in the air provides me with some incredible inspiration. I love jotting down big dreams, thoughts and inspirational quotes when I'm traveling to and from my favorite places.
