While some of you may be wistfully looking forward to the fall fashion trends just around the corner, there is still plenty of summer left for the season, and plenty of time within it to get some additional summer traveling in. Always someone who is up for an adventure, I never turn down the opportunity to hop on a place or get in the back seat of a car headed to somewhere different and new.
Like me, many of you have decided to take one last trip, getting your seasonal traveling experiences in while you still can.
Open skies and sun-light highways, here we come!
As with any traveling however, packing with a limited amount of space in your luggage can prove to be a challenge. It can mean not only limiting the number of shoes you are able to stuff into your too-small carry-on, but also picking out jewelry pieces that won’t become a tangled, impossible-to-wear mess by the time your and yours goods reach your destination.
For travel-ready jewelry, you'll want to choose pieces that don’t have as much wire exposed, and/or have minimal chain elements.
To make your accessorizing easier, pack along simple pieces that can easily go with most of what you are planning on wearing. Picking a neutral colored necklace, for example, can span across your evening dress to something to drape over a relaxed white t-shirt.
Other easy-to-pack pieces include beaded adjustable bracelets that don't have clasps that will get tangled or caught on anything, and beaded rings that are much more lightweight than their metal-made counter-parts.
Finally, stick your small pieces into Ziploc bags before packing them into your luggage or carry-ons. You wouldn’t want them to be hard to find when you’re in a hurry! It will also protect them from getting snagged into your clothing or the lining of your luggage.
Have a safe and fun rest of your summer!
