3 Carry-On Items That You Should Pack For Your Next Flight

23 Jul

Besides the essentials (passport, ipod, phone…)  there are certain extras that will make your take-off much more exciting:

 

Movie Star Shades

Whether you go for a 60’s round look or a sleek cat eye such as these glasses from Tom Ford, all eyes will definitely be on you when you wear dramatic shades.

 

Luxe Moisturizer

Even the oiliest faces can get super dry on a flight. Within carry-on limits, it is still quite easy to find a moisturizer that will work well while flying high. La Mer is the epitome of luxury but Kiehls, Neutrogena and Lancome make fantastic creams that will work way beyond touchdown.

 

Sleep Mask

"Sleeping Beauty" Sleep Mask, $25, Mary Green

“Sleeping Beauty” Sleep Mask, $25, Mary Green

A sleeping mask is an often overlooked necessity for flights. Along with ear plugs, you will blissfully miss out on all of the entertainment a flight typically has to offer such as screaming kids and noisy chatter. Plus it will send a subtle hint to the person next to you that you are not exactly in the mood for conversation.

Some people were curious as to what you would wear on a safari. I researched and here are my picks and why:
1) Michael Kors Crepe Dress: Safaris can get very warm and uncomfortable, since you are in an open car for a long period of time. I would probably do a dress, since I’m more of a dress girl and I never mind the heat as much. You can also do khaki cargoes (Ralph Lauren always makes a cute pair) with a 3/4 sleeve khaki cotton shirt. The reason for so much khaki? You want to blend into the animal’s natural surroundings. You can also do olive green and sludgy brown colors but whatever you do, avoid bright colors unless you want to be somebody’s lunch.
2) Tan and White Tods Sneaker: Sandals are not recommended for safaris because chances are they might slip off and/or you will get lots of bug bites. I chose the Tods sneaker because it’s quiet luxury at it’s best and the colors are very subtle. Plus, these are way cuter than some other close-toed shoes I’ve seen for safaris.
3) Ray Bans: Sand can get into your eyes rather easily on a safari and can cause discomfort that will distract you during your journey. Take my advice: try to wear these as much as possible, especially if you wear contacts. And skip the mascara.
4) Tan Cotton Head Scarf: The cotton absorbs perspiration and the scarf keeps hair out of your face. Or you can do a cute ponytail. Either way, leave your Hermes silk scarf at home.
5) Hermes Blanket: Lots of people say that it can get pretty chilly at night time, so when relaxing in your room, throw this on for extra comfort.
6) L’oreal Sublime Self-Tanner: It’s much more flattering to be tan while wearing shorts and earth tones your entire trip. Self-tan a few days before you go to Africa.
7) Chanel Lip Balm: Since you won’t be wearing much make-up, at least splurge on the lip balm. This one has a beautiful consistency and will protect your lips from nature’s harsh elements.

Just when I thought my sunglasses obsession was simmering down, I saw these beauties ( see above) on the Alice + Olivia website. They don’t make sunglasses as a company, so WHO makes them? I emailed them to find out but while I’m waiting for an answer, here are the top 5 sunglasses that should be in every RGRS’ arsenal:

The Classic Black Round Pair:

You can invest in this type but I think they are more fun when found spontaneously at a street vendor or at a flea market. I’ve acquired numerous pairs like this throughout the years. Collect them in not just black but in white, red, tortoise…anything goes!

 

Black Wave Sunglasses, $14.80, Bleudame.com


The Cat Eye:

I’m glad this style recently made a revival. Although you can find many great cat eyes, Tom Ford has by far perfected it by making the frame more modern. The “Nico” gets my vote for the sexiest style done in years.

Tom Ford Nico Sunglasses, $445, Neimanmarcus.com

 

The Eclectic High-Fashion Pair:

Whether it’s a kooky pair of Jeremy Scotts or a Prada Baroque frame, we all need a little madness in our life. You should feel a slight buzz when putting them on. The Balenciagas below are an amazing option.

Balenciaga Purple/Orange Sunglasses, $395, Balenciaga.com

 

The Lolitas:

They may seem juvenile to some but are definitely essential for road trips, being flirty and coy, sipping on Coca-Colas at the beach or all of the above.

Lolita Cute Heart Sunglasses, $12 each, Quixotic.com

 

Aviators:

These are timeless and every fashion icon seems to own the classic Ray-Ban version.

Large Metal Aviator, $195, Rayban.com

Five Spring (or Anytime) RGRS Essentials

6 May

No matter what your signature style is, there a some items that work well with all RGRS wardrobes:

Oversized Sunglasses

You can be the most awkard person but oversized sunglasses will still make you feel like a superstar. Plus they work well when you're trying to avoid people. House of Harlow 1960 Oversized Retro Sunglasses, $125, Shopbop.com

A Great Coat

A great coat is like stylish protective armor. If an outfit goes wrong, you can throw one over and you're good as new. I'm partial to trench coats as a beginner coat staple but depending on your personality, you can start with a fur or a bright colored one. Burberry Cotton Blend Trench Coat, $1,095, Netaporter.com

Ballet Flats

I live in ballet flats because heels just don't work for my crazy long hours at work. It's also an essential that you can spend as much or as little as you want because with all of the pretty options out there, you'll want to switch them so often anyway. I chose to feature Lanvin flats because according to every girl I speak to, they seem to be the most comfortable. Lanvin Leather Ballerina Flat, $485, Netaporter.com

A Great Haircut

My belief is that a good hairstyle really pulls everything together. The same for a beauty routine that you can do with your eyes closed. Great Haircut, priceless.

A Signature Fragrance

The perfect fragrance can be nostalgic, sexy and welcoming all at the same time. Get tons of samples and give each one a chance for the day. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, $100 for 1.7 oz., Sephora.com
