Can't Live Without it: Travel Edition

scarf travel essential

Once again I'm joining Cait, Stephanie and Laura for their Friday link up - a really fun way to discover new blogs!

So what else can't I live travel without? A scarf. A nice, long, soft scarf can serve as a blanket or pillow in a freezing and uncomfortable plane cabin, and now that I'm a mama it also doubles as a nursing cover. I didn't even bother buying an actual nursing cover (because see picture above) and it has worked out really well! I've accumulated a pretty good scarf collection from travels, vintage stores (amazing fringe shawl from St. Pete, FL) and gifts from former students, family and friends. My favorite one nowadays is my infinity floral one (similar here).

Travel Tips


  1. Wow -- that's quite the collection! Hopefully Arizona lets you wear them as much as you'd like to. I always travel with a lightweight sweater that is almost scarf material. I'm always freezing!

  2. I love scarves too! So versatile and can make any outfit pop!

  3. I looooove flowy scarves. I wear them year-round! Happy weekend!

  4. Too funny you say this! My parents just left for five weeks of travel (Europe/New York & Aruba - oh to be retired) and I told my mom to wear a scarf on the plane. You can cover your nose if someone is sneezing, coughing or smells bad. You can wad it up to use as a pillow. Or as a pseudo blanket! Essential! Thanks for linking up lady!

  5. I can't travel without a good book! I'm either flying or the passenger and I need a book to get me through a trip :)

  7. I can't go anywhere without my converse shoes! Great post hahaha! Have a nice day,
