chic essentials for THE "on the go" girl

sponsored by dole

As a frequent traveler, I’ve learned that I need to be able to transition quickly from travel garb to fashion attire. I find this especially true in fashion forward cities like New York. Throughout the years, I’ve discovered key essentials that I travel with when I know that I need to do a quick transition.

quay Australia sunglasses:

These are great for completing a look or even making the look. I’ve worn my Quay's in yoga gear all the way to a little black dress. They work with everything and anything to make you look chic.

"GIRL ABOUT TOWN" MAC LIPSTICK:

Even if you have minimal (or no) makeup on, throwing on a bit of color does wonders. I tend to choose a bright color that pops. It gives me energy to take on the day/night. My favorite is "Girl About Town" by Mac

Little black dress:

You’ve heard it before and you'll hear it again; every girl needs a little black dress. Pop on a pair of heels and you’re ready to take on the night, or for a more casual look throw a jacket over it.

zara jacket:

I love this rose jacket from Zara because it's versatile.  When I need to look chic, I can throw this jacket over my little black dress as a cover up. I can also wear this jacket simply while traveling to keep me warm. It’s great for Spring or Fall.

black gigi purse:

This purse is the perfect size for me to hold the essentials I need when I’m on the go. I normally throw my wallet, cell phone and lipstick in there. The bag is high quality, premium leather and matches everything since it’s black. It makes it easy to coordinate outfits and stay in style when on the run.

dark chocolate covered strawberries:

Do you really need a reason to eat dark chocolate covered strawberries....? I didn't think so! Dole Dippers  has a chocolate covered strawberry snack (amongst other fruit varieties) that I love to bring on the go. It isn't messy either! I always like to have something on hand while I’m running around and Dole Dippers make it easy to have a healthy snack that can be thrown in your purse.

While on the go, I generally grab one bag from the freezer (only 60 calories!) and wait about 5 minutes so they are ready to eat. They are real fruit and covered in 67% cocoa dark chocolate. Each pouch is gluten-free and non-GMO. It’s the perfect treat to keep on-hand to cure my chocolate cravings in a healthy way!

If you’re interested in looking fashionable while on the go, I suggest checking out the Chic Essentials sale here and enter to win a Gilt style consultation provided by Dole Dippers. I have been an avid shopper of Gilt for years and even won one of their contests 4 years ago (seriously!). They have high quality products and great customer service. Plus, a style consultation is great for any girl to have. I know I’ll be entering, may the best girl win!
