It’s taken me years of poking around the Liberty of London site to discover that they sell travel umbrellas, and in some pretty unstoppable prints—like this bold and bright Ianthe, which you’ve really got to click through and magnify to appreciate, and which I decided was absolutely worth the overseas shipping fee.
I love my household UE Boom speaker—it delivers a mighty, crisp sound for such a wee little thing—and this travel version is cute as the dickens and rings in at well under $100, which is nice.
Since everybody’s suitcases look somewhat alike, I like to go for a luggage tag that’s got a little something different going on. Plus, any excuse to let a splash of metallic into your life is a good one in my book.
I’m double-dipping on the Liberty in this post if that’s OK with you, because I couldn’t quite resist this poppy little cosmetic bag.
Probably the cutest sleep mask ever.
I’ve said it before and I’ll dare to repeat it: you never know when the plane you’re about to board is going to be absolutely freezing, which is why I always travel with a Chan Luu silk-and-cashmere-blend scarf to press into service as a blanket. (Here is a nice and cheaper alternative from Nordstrom.)
And finally: the suitcase of my dreams.
