Kelly’s Chic Under $100: Travel Essentials.

Affordable Travel Style - Kelly's Chic Under $100 - The Stripe

Grace and I have both been traveling so much this month! I was home in San Diego last week absorbing the lovely “fall” that Southern Californians experience every year (temps were in the low 70°s) in all its glory. Burritos on the beach, discovering fun new boutiques with my mom (shoutout to Tucci – hello Ulla Johnson, Zimmermann, and Isabel Marant goodies!), and going to the symphony with my dad… so perfect.

As great as it was to be home, the flight from NYC to San Diego is surprisingly arduous. It took much longer than originally anticipated. Tons of delays, reroutes, and wasted time in the air and at airports. I regretted not packing a few of my favorite travel essentials.

For example, I’ve suddenly developed the driest skin after every flight I take, and this Earth Tu Face Balm is genuinely the greatest moisturizer I’ve ever used. I normally try to keep my skincare products under $50, but this is well worth the $68 price tag. It heals, moisturizes, and smooths. I used it all winter last year and my standard redness is gone and my pores look smaller. It’s a definite must!

Flats, too, are of the utmost importance. These Coach loafers are pretty and come in at just under $100. They allow you to wear low-cut socks to save your feet from the cold airport floors at security. I’d also recommend these MAC travel cosmetics brushes to keep your carry on light, and this cozy cashmere cardigan that will allow you to wrap up on the plane. Finally, who doesn’t love a good pajama set, especially when traveling? It always makes my trips feel just a little bit more luxurious!

Happy travels this fall!
