Your Travel Cheat Sheet + The Gemstone Jewellery You Do Not Want to Leave Behind
When it comes to travelling in style, there is a fine line between the age old adage of fashion over function and dressing for comfort. Knowing what to throw in your carry-on at the last minute and what to leave behind is an art form. Ready to become a master? Here is your travel cheat sheet + the gemstone jewellery you do not want to leave behind.
We know just how cramped those economy class seats can be, and no matter how cute that little silk number looks in the mirror, after 4 hours of flying-time it will be nothing but wrinkles. When travelling, stick with neutral colours and favour materials like wool or cashmere, that will not leave you begging for a steamer when you arrive at your destination.
Accessories are the best (and most compact) way to make a statement when you travel. Scarves, hats, and multi-purpose gemstone jewellery that can be worn in the boardroom or out to dinner are perfect ways to show off your style. We love the Amelia Necklace in and out of the office (and especially up in the air). With its subtle and sophisticated mix of rose gold, platinum pearl and smokey quartz, it is an obvious choice for the frequent flyer.
Versatility is key when it comes to packing. Choose clothes, shoes, and gemstone jewellery that you can easily mix and match to create multiple looks. (Hint: a white blouse looks great with jeans, tucked into a pencil skirt, or even under a blazer!) The Alouette Necklace is versatile with peach and smoked grey moonstone, bronze, and platinum Swarovski pearls and a touch of quartz. The balanced design is perfect for layering and you can complete the look with the Alouette Bracelet.
Last but not least, every seasoned traveler knows there are just some things you need to have on hand at all times. When it comes to packing your purse, do not forget these things:
- The address of your hotel and other locations you will need at your fingertips (we like to err on the side of caution and keep a hard-copy of important info just in case our smart phones fail us!)
- A travel-size mascara and bold lip colour (great for a quick ladies room refresh!)
- Passport, boarding passes and other travel documents (we know we do not need to tell you this!)
- Hand-sanitizer, breath mints, lip chap and hand cream (trust us!)
- Cash in your destination country's currency (easy for grabbing coffee, or a cab!)
Now that you have mastered the fine art of travelling in style, relax and enjoy the ride. And whatever you do, wherever you are going, do not leave your gemstone jewellery behind!
