As the weather starts to crescendo into a comfortable climate that consist of clear skies and sunshine, wanderlust begins to invade our brains as we dream about soft-sand beaches and exotic cultures. (Plus, it doesn’t help that flight prices are ridiculous cheap right now.) Although, a dream getaway is a plane ticket away, there comes the halting reality that we all have to deal with when it comes to travel: TSA checks, packing, and the actual flight. And with Fashion Month coming to a close and travel season now in full swing, we got in touch with a few style bloggers that not only know a thing or to when it comes to fashion, but make travel a part of their job, too. So whether you’re planning a weekend getaway with the girls or an overseas adventure to the other side of the world, check out how these 5 fashion bloggers fly in style with their travel tips and essentials.

1. Must-have beauty essentials for an in-flight beauty treatment?

Marine Complex Exfoliator from GLOW Recipe! Super fun to use and sorta looks like a giant Q-tip! If you have never seen an aqua peeler before, the first thing that you will think when you look at one is that it looks like a giant Q-tip. However, there’s a lot more involved. Aqua peelers are the at-home version of aqua peeling treatments. I like to apply it during my 6 hour flight then take a nap. I wake up with a face of fresher skin. (P.S. No rinsing needed, how cool?!)

2. Travel accessory you can’t live without?

Sunnies! Always.

3. Best way to dress for a long flight?

Monochromatic to stay sophisticated but pick comfy materials such as leggings, nude colored crop tops and bomber jackets!

     1. Tricks for quick TSA check?

Compartmentalize your life. Underwear goes in a linen bag, toiletries get stuffed into a huge waterproof kit, and use all the little extra pockets your suitcase provides for loose ends. Brainy a neat freak is key.

2. Travel accessory you can’t live without?

Mmmmm… A stockpile of snacks and drinks?

3. Best way to dress for a long flight?

A long skirt or dress so you have enough freedom to do the samba down the isles.

1. Tricks for quick TSA check?

Lose the Jewelry, wear slip-ons, minimal layering, and laptop bag always with the zipper up.

2. Travel accessory you can’t live without?

I’ll have to put a few on here: Bowers & Wilkins Bluetooth Headphones, Mophie, neck pillow and eye mask.

3. Best way to dress for a long flight?

All-knit everything. But I still like looking fresh, so usually it’s joggers that look like pants, and a super stretchy blazer over a T-shirt and slip-on sneakers.

1. Must-have beauty essentials for in-flight beauty treatments?

I basically bring my own spa with me. Under eye gels, rose water face mist. I love anything from Skyn Iceland, they have amazing face mask! Then blush for when you land. I always tend to stand next to the one hot guy when I’m looking my most craziest.

2. Travel accessory you can’t live without ?

Neck pillow and sleep mask. If I forget these things, I might as well jump out of the plane.

3. Top 5 travel essentials for a red eye?

Rule #1: Try not to be a couple of drinks in… believe me, it only makes things worse!

Rule #2: Check in way before hand to score a window seat!

Rule #3: Comfy clothes. I wear leggings and oversized hoodies.

Rule #4: Toothbrush. Your breath will smell and what if you meet the man of your dreams in seat 23E?

Rule #5: Charge your iPod or whatever you use to listen to music on these days. This helps if your neighbor snores (happened to me it sucks).

1. Tricks for quick TSA check?

Keep all the things you have to take out during security (laptop, toiletries) in the same bag so they’re easily accessible.

2. Best way to dress for a long flight?

Leggings and a comfy sweater. I also bring a change of clothes if the flight is over 8 hours so that I can feel fresh when I land.

3. Top 5 travel essentials for a red eye?

Sleep mask, toothbrush, a good moisturizer, slippers and a change of clothes.
