The holiday season is almost upon us and one of the most important things a lady needs to think about when jetting off is what goes in her carry on. So as part of Next's recently launched campaign around their fabulous handbag range I've put together what I would pack and in what bag.

001. My chosen carry on is the Trapeze Tote. Effortlessly chic this slick beauty is the perfect plane piece. With enough room for all my carry-on goodies and that little bit extra for whatever I pick up in duty-free the Trapeze Tote is both stylish and practical, the large shoulder handles make it easy to keep close and carry around too. What's also great about it is that it features a great pocket on the front, I don't know about you guys but keeping my money, passport and phone in one safe place when travelling is one of the most important things. This envelope style pouch is perfect for keeping all your important bits together. 

002. Sunglasses are key when travelling, to hide jet lagged dark circles and to protect those all important peepers when you step off the plane into the sunshine.

003. I can't resist a pretty passport case, I'll be snapping up this leopard and gold one in time for holiday.

004. In-flight reading is a great way to speed up the journey, I find getting into a good book really helps the time go by. I don't have any reads planned for the summer ahead (so if anyone has any good beach read recommendations please let me know!), but these are a couple of my faves. The teen Vogue handbook is full of handy tips for up and coming fashionistas and Temptation Island is a fabulously thrilling book by Victoria Fox that I read last year and was simply amazing.

005. Wipes go without saying, an easy freshen up and Stila's aptly named 'Ready For Take Off' wipes seem just the ticket (ha).

006, 007 & 008. When flying and for daytime holiday make up I tend to keep it as minimal as poss. Clinique's tinted moisturizer provides light coverage with a touch of SPF, paired with a lip balm and lick of mascara and I'm ready to go.

009. iPhone, earphones and charger (not pictured). Simply for entertainment, instagraming and cancelling out irritating plane passengers.

  4. Hello Lucia,

    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's luxury brands ads, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
    Here the link of my survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WV3LYH6
    Thank you!
