On my recent flight back from Australia, I was chatting with the lady seated next to me. I told her about my job and my travels and she asked me: “What is the one travel item you bring on all your travels?” It sounds like a simple question but I started thinking. Besides the obvious things like a passport or my iPhone, I realized I always bring a scarf.
A scarf is versatile, you can use it as
*a blanket on the plane when you`re cold
*a dress/skirt when your luggage hasn`t arrived
*a sarong on your bikini outfit
*a wrap on top of your dress during a chilly night out
* a pick-nick blanket
and of course to spice up an outfit, making it look different each time.
I found this video by Wendy`s Lookbook that shows you 25 different ways to wear a scarf (and she does it in 4,5 min)
I have to admit that since that trip I have to add an item. When I got back from Australia, there was a pair of Tieks shoes waiting for me. For those of you not familiar with the shoes, these are comfortable flats in many different colors, the perfect travel shoe. So why are they the perfect travel shoe you ask?
Because they are:
*Comfortable, probably the most important aspect of a shoe
*Go with almost every outfit (very important when traveling light and can`t bring all the shoes you would like!)
*Small to take with you, as they are designed to fold and even fit in a purse
*Durable, they`re made out of the finest Italian leather
Every pair of shoes comes with pants clips for when you`re out wearing heels and want to wear the flats instead, because they`re more comfortable. A bag to put your heels in and a little carrying pouch to fit the folded pair of Tieks.
Yes they aren`t cheap. Tieks start from $165 for a solid color pair. When I first saw the price, I thought the same, but when you see the quality of the shoe and feel the comfort, you understand why.
What`s your favorite travel item?
*Even though I got send this pair of Tieks for review purposes, the enthusiasm for them, is all my own.
