1-travel-essentials-stefanel-fashezine“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”

– Bill Bryson

And while we experience and enjoy the rewards that travel has to offer, we better dress for the occasion. As we speak I am off to lovely Venice, and what better travel partner than the tried and tested essentially Italian brand Stefanel? Because natural, comfortable fabrics are a traveler’s best friends, especially if you’re looking at more than a one hour flight 🙂


What are my 5 in-flight travel essentials?

Passport: obviously, indeed, but considering I spend the last two days searching for mine only to find it in the pocket on the jacket I wore the last time I traveled by plane, I better not forget about it again.

Magazines and books: with an emphasis on books, but honestly, who can resist the lure of an airport news & magazine stand?

Comfy Cardigan: There’s nothing like wrapping yourself in a cozy oversized cardigan, softness is a plus.

Sensible Shoes: I love my heels as much as the next girl, but please please please (yes, it’s this important) wear comfortable shoes, we’re all here to travel not to get hit on.

Scarf: The only accessory that you must have is a a big scarf to snug in or use as a hair accessory if necessity calls for it.
