Recently as life would have it I’ve been traveling a lot more. With that I’ve made some revelations and realized traveling like an adult is far different from traveling as a broke college student. Here are a few things that I’ve learned that will make your traveling the fabulous experience you’d like it to be.

My go-to travel outfit tends to be a maxi dress, culotte or palazzo pant and tank kind of look with a leather jacket or oversized denim shirt.
