when it comes to planning a trip picking your outfits is at the top of the to-do list. yesterday, i shared my style formula of how i put outfits together. but i would be remiss if i didn’t talk about how to travel with accessories. because even when we’re on va-cay and suitcase space is at a premium, it’s a great time to accessorize and a great excuse to expand your jewelry wardrobe to include fashion jewelry. it’s fun to dress up even your most basic travel outfit. for those of you who like to pack light opt to pack fewer clothes and bring more fun accessories instead! and since you’re sticking to less expensive jewelry, go ahead and add a few trendy pieces.
how to travel with accessories
for most leisure travel, the simple rule is don’t bring anything you’re going to worry about losing. it’s best to leave items of monetary or emotional value at home. and that might even include your wedding rings or statement watch. because when you travel with expensive, irreplaceable jewelry, you tend to worry about the simplest things. like taking your rings off to wash your hands and forgetting said pile of rings next to the sink…
traveling with jewelry
- travel with fashion jewelry
- travel with a small amount of jewelry
- leave family heirlooms at home
- take photos of what you’re bringing
so i’m thrilled to partner with Victoria Emerson today to share a few key pieces that are perfect to throw into your suitcase. and it’s a perfect time to shop their Valentine’s Day Sale from 2.12 through 2.18. one thing i’ve noticed with Victoria Emerson jewelry is that it doesn’t tangle. can i hear an amen?! and every. single. bracelet. comes with a jewelry pouch which makes packing a breeze.
there are lots and lots of boho cuffs to choose from in a variety of color palettes at Victoria Emerson. it takes the guesswork out of stacking your bracelets. but enamel bracelets are on trend these days, so consider adding one or two to your collection. if you want to add bright colors to your outfit, the Ivy Stack is a good choice.
- invest in a jewelry travel case or jewelry roll
- roll necklaces in a microfiber cloth
- thread thin necklaces through a straw
- store small rings and earrings in a pill organizer
- jewelry pouches
- pack jewelry in your carry-on bag. checked bags have a greater chance of getting misplaced
- avoid placing jewelry in outer pockets or compartments
- surround the jewelry with soft clothing
don’t forget that you’re taking a vacation to relax and have fun. it’s important to get away from your daily routine from time to time. so keep jewelry simple and inexpensive, so it doesn’t add stress or worries.
a big thank you to Victoria Emerson for this sponsored post. and thank you, lovely readers, for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
