There is something about the warmer months that always make me want to get out of the house, pack up the car and hit the road! Whether we are beach bound, going to visit family or just taking a little family adventure, there are a few must-have travel essentials I never leave home without. I’ve been on a few trips recently and found myself packing the same few essentials over and over, so I thought I would share!
Loverly Grey’s Must- Have Travel Essentials
Billie Razor + Travel Case
I have yet to find a razor that even compares to the Billie razor. Not only does it give such a smooth shave, it’s also very moisturizing. I wouldn’t even consider heading to the beach with out mine. I have the color flamingo. I also picked up the travel case so I don’t have to worry about the blade being loose in my bag. In addition to the Billie razor, I also always pack my Billie make-up remover wipes. They are very gentle on my skin and great for taking off makeup, dirt and oil after a long travel day. You could even pack them in your carry-on and use them after you get off the plain for a fresh face!
SHOP BILLIE FAVORITES
My Elemis pro-collage marine cream and pro-collagen night cream are both part of my daily skincare routine. After a long day of travel, this is exactly what my skin needs to rejuvenate itself. Flying can be very dehydrating on the skin, so having a great moisturizer is key to not looking and feeling tired after a long flight. To see my full skincare routine check out THIS POST!

Amazon Travel Case
I love anything that keeps things organized and easy to find, especially when I’m traveling. Traveling can be stressful when you have kids or don’t know where you’re going. The last thing you want is to think you forgot something, when it was really just buried under a sweatshirt in your suitcase. The Amazon travel bags are super affordable and great quality. I love that they unfold and you can easily hang them in the bathroom at your hotel. This allows everything to stay in place and I can easily find what I’m looking for. Plus they help me save space, because these travel cases are super compact!

Logan + Lenora Travel Bags
My Logan and Lenora travel case might just be one of my most used items. I love how versatile one pouch can be. I’ll use it as a catch all when I’m traveling or I will store my makeup in it. Which is stress-free because the pouch itself is machine washable. So if something spills, no worries! I’ve also used it as a clutch when I just need to take a few things. Lastly, it works great in a diaper bag to keep things separated. Or if you are in the toddler phase and just need a few diapers and some, this is great to throw in your tote bag and keep baby’s items separate. No bottomless pits here.

Logan + Lenora Tote Bag
I can’t rave about my Logan + Lenora bags enough. Depending on where I’m going and how long I will be there, usually dictates which of my Logan and Lenora bags I bring. If we are beach bound, I’ll definitely bring my XL Beach tote, Makeup Case and possibly even the backpack and weekend bag. The beach tote is great for the beach, while the backpack is great for being hands-free when I have the girls with me. If I need an extra bag for all the things or we are just staying overnight I’ll pack my weekend bag. To see a full review of the Logan and Lenora bag check out THIS POST.
Loverly Grey Travel Looks
When it comes to travel days, I love to keep things simply and comfy. I’m all about a matching lounge set like this one or my go-to tie dye joggers (below). You guys have also seen my sporting my favorite drawstring shorts and henley top in long car rides or just lounging around in the mornings while I sip coffee. The key is the be comfortable. And wear light layers that you can easily throw a denim jacket over, in case it gets chilly. To see multiple ways I style my denim jacket when I travel, check out this post here!
SHOP THE LOOK
If you are heading to somewhere tropical and warm, pair this ultra comfy henley top with these loose fitting drawstring shorts. Add a pair of white sneakers and a straw bag to complete the look. If you are going to be in and out of the car or on a long plain ride, I would recommend the jogger look! Either look you choose you’re sure to be comfy and cute.
Another easy, go-to travel look of mine is pairing an oversized sweatshirt with denim mom shorts. I love these ones from Abercrombie. I recommend sizing up for a looser fit. However, they do stretch out as you wear them. I’ve worn this pair for the past few years and always come back to them. If you haven’t picked up a pair for yourself yet, I would highly recommend doing so.
