Stylish & Stress-Free Holiday Travel Tips for the 40-Year-Old Jet-Setter
As someone who's constantly on the move, I've mastered the art of packing for both style and comfort. Between traveling to the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix and jetting off to spend Thanksgiving with my family, I realized it was time to share with you my travel must-haves and tips to make your holiday journeys as glamorous and organized as mine. These 5 travel tips will help you pack no matter where you’re going this holiday season, whether you need packing tips for international travel or you’re staying stateside and need packing tips for airplane travel.
Let's kick things off with the real game-changer in my travel wardrobe—the Anatomie travel set. This ensemble is my go-to for airport glam and in-flight comfort during holiday travel. The fabric is like magic—wrinkle-free, breathable, and, dare I say, utterly fabulous. The matching top and bottoms not only keep me looking polished as I jet off to my next destination for holiday travel, but they also make me feel like a million bucks. Plus, feeling put together makes for a stress free travel experience, and you’ll be able to hit the lounge without feeling like you look lazy.
Tip: Roll, Don't Fold! To keep your Anatomie set looking fresh during your holiday travels, roll each piece instead of folding. This minimizes wrinkles and saves space in your suitcase.
Maintaining my fitness routine is non-negotiable, even during the holidays. That's why my trusty workout gloves are a permanent resident hanging off my backpack. Whether I'm hitting the hotel gym or squeezing in a quick workout in my room during holiday travel, these gloves keep my hands protected and my grip strong.
And let's talk about the TRX equipment—a portable gym that fits right into my backpack! No matter where I am, I can get a full-body workout, ensuring I stay in top shape to handle all the holiday festivities. The TRX is a game-changer for any fitness enthusiast, allowing me to stay on track with my wellness goals while on the go during holiday travel.
Tip: Pack a Resistance Band. Lightweight and versatile, a resistance band adds an extra layer to your workout routine without taking up much space in your luggage.
When you take as many planes as I do, all that dry air can start to get to you. OneSkin lotion has become my secret weapon for maintaining radiant and youthful skin. Packed with hydration and skin-loving ingredients, this lotion keeps my skin supple, especially during long flights. Trust me, a little self-care goes a long way during holiday travel, and OneSkin is my go-to for that added holiday glow, and is always high up on my “must bring” list when I’m packing for international travel.
Tip: Miniature Toiletries Are Your Best Friends. Invest in travel-sized containers for your favorite skincare products to save space and avoid any liquid-related mishaps in your suitcase!
Now, let's talk about my secret weapon for packing cute workout outfits during the holiday travel hustle—I always make room in my suitcase for 1 or 2 matching workout sets from Mini Activewear. These sets are not only fashion-forward but also incredibly practical. Their sleek designs and quality materials make them a staple for my workouts, whether I'm in a hotel gym or squeezing in a session in my room. The best part? Mini Activewear sets are easy to wash, quick to dry, and slip right into my suitcase without taking up any precious space. It's a holiday travel wardrobe essential that effortlessly combines fashion with functionality, ensuring I'm always ready to break a sweat in style, no matter where the festivities take me.
Tip: Invest in Fashionable Activewear. Bringing along stylish workout gear not only keeps you on-trend but also motivates you to stay active during your holiday travels. Plus, the easy-wash feature is a game-changer for keeping things fresh and ready for the next workout session.
Pack a Capsule Wardrobe: Pack pieces that can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits for stress-free holiday travel. A statement jacket or scarf can transform a look effortlessly.
Tech Essentials: I alway’s regret it when I don’t do this: pack an extra charger! Carry it in your purse or bring a reusable one, but don't forget your chargers, power banks, and a universal adapter. Staying connected is crucial for sharing those fun holiday travel moments with your followers.
Snack Attack: Pack healthy snacks for the plane. There is nothing worse than having to eat airport food. Nuts, protein bars, and dried fruits are my go-to choices. Head over to my blog for a delicious pumpkin seed recipe that is perfect to bring along.
Travel-Sized Steamer: A small steamer is a lifesaver for refreshing your clothes upon arrival during holiday travel and ensuring you're ready to hit the ground running.
So there you have it, my darlings—a glimpse into my holiday travel essentials. Remember, age is just a number, and there's no reason why you can't look and feel fabulous while jet-setting around the globe for stress-free and stylish holiday travel. Safe travels and happy holidays!
