Breathe in New Air

Breathe in New Air

     I don't know about you, but I love traveling.  I love the views from new places, meeting people with different perspectives and breathing in every ounce of culture, as much as I can possibly absorb.  My favorite way to travel, though-- light, light, light.  I wanna be free, unencumbered and unfettered!

     Whether you're traveling by car, train, plane or boat, its always easier to pack light.  Carrying less...seems so simple, right?!  Well, it is.  I promise!  It just takes a little planning. 

Start with your onboard outfit and build off of it.  Pick something classic and comfortable, like this tunic and jeans:

     Next, grab a big, colorful bag.  My go-to items for my carry-on bag: reusable water bottle, charging cables/battery and necessary liquids (lavender hand-sani, misting spray, lotion and mouthwash).

Grab a scarf or sweater to stay warm in transit.  Loose-fitting sweaters in natural fabrics (like cashmere and linen) are great for travel because they provide that extra layer for warmth while remaining breathable.

Add 3-5 more tops (or a mix between dresses and blouses) and at least 2 more bottoms.  A couple pairs of shoes and you're golden!  Pack items that can be worn multiple times in combination with one another.  Choose your accessories based on the weather in your destination.  If you'd like to learn more about breathable fabrics, check out our latest posts on dressing for hot weather and dressing in transition to fall

     Shopping U5 gives you the opportunity to create outfits that lessen your environmental impact AND support those in need.  Shop for good and enjoy yourself!  Create your own favorite travel look and shop more of our travel picks in the Great Escape Collection.
