Lily & Drew Carry On Weekender Bag

 

The Lily & Drew Weekender Overnight Shoulder Bag is the second most popular under-the-seat personal item featured on the blog, and I just ordered it to test it out on my next flight! I will keep you informed!  

There are tons of internal and external pockets, the shoulder strap is padded for comfort, and you can fit a 15.6″ laptop in a protective zippered compartment. As a plus, it also has a trolley sleeve to sit smoothly over your carry on suitcase. It comes in three colors that will surely suit your packing style!

Vionic Kirra Sandal (Wide Sizes Available)

 

The Vionic Kirra Sandals are among the top 3 shoes on the blog that are beloved by TFG readers! They’re sleek and chic with a triangular thong-style design and backstrap for stability and adjustability. The microfiber-wrapped EVA footbed is so soft you’ll think you’re walking on a cloud.

The black color is a reliable neutral, making it easy to pair with any outfit or color. We love that you can keep these casual for beach days or dress them up for excursions in the city. But obviously, there are an array of other pretty colors to choose from as well, and in wides sizes too!

Shop Sizes XXS-XXL: Nordstrom

 

Caslon Linen Shorts

 

Can you believe the first official day of summer was June 20?! Chilled out and relaxed, these Caslon Linen Shorts are easy breezy and are an ideal item for a trip to a hot and humid destination. Linen is one of the top fabrics to help you stay cool because it’s breathable and wicks away moisture from the skin.

And the high waist style of these shorts can easily be dressed up or down! You can get this in three summer-ready colors and sizes XXS-XXL

Honorable Mentions

 

These other terrific items didn’t quite make the top five but they deserve some spotlight too!

Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Backpack

 

The Longchamp Le Pliage Backpack is hugely popular with TFG readers, and there’s a good reason why! It’s collapsible, easy to clean, water-resistant, and lightweight. It takes up very little space in your closet when storing, and it packs small inside your suitcase when traveling. 

It’s also stylish and durable and comes in three lovely colors, but our fave is Gunmetal by far!

Travelon Mini Shoulder Bag

 

Travelon’s Classic Mini Travel Bag offers the spaciousness of a larger bag without the unwanted bulk that may come with it. With a lockable, RFID-protected main compartment, two exterior zippered pockets, and a lightweight feel even when full, this piece is secure, roomy, and organized. 

This is a solid choice to grab if you’re planning a trip to Europe soon as it’s chic-looking but equipped with all the anti-theft features you’d want! You can choose among seven other colors to suit your personal style!

Wallaroo Tahiti Hat

 

The Wallaroo Tahiti Hat is a lightweight, fedora-style hat that adds a pop of color (choose between black, red, taupe, and turquoise) to your travel wardrobe.

It has UPF 50+ sun protection and an internal drawstring to make sure it fits perfectly and packs well. One TFG reader says it was “perfect for a trip to Hawai, packed completely rolled up, then sprung back into shape for all my poolside and beachside sun activities!”

Naot Sabrina Sandal

 

My go-to for years, I first discovered the Naot Sabrina Sandals when I was traveling long term in places such as Southeast Asia and Europe, and I absolutely loved these sandals wherever I wore them. Read my review on these!

They’re also a reader favorite as one says, “So worth buying these! I walk a ton when I travel. Mine is five years old and still looks new, and the tread is not worn.”

They have an adjustable ankle strap that’s easy to slip on and off and a supportive footbed. There’s built-in arch support and shock absorption, which is crucial for many travelers, especially those who need additional support.

adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Sneaker

 

While sandals are a constant buy during the summer, sneakers “sneak” in there too! 

The Adidas Cloufam Advantage is the most popular white sneaker with readers as it boasts a cushioned insole, which many say “feels like you’re walking on clouds!” Plus, it has a sturdy rubber sole. 

For women that need serious arch support, though, you might want to skip these, but they remain a top classic that you can wear just about anywhere, at home and abroad.
