It’s that time of year again for Spring Break and even if you’re not going anywhere for break, it’s time to start thinking summer vacations! If there is a key to packing light for vacation, it’s choosing the right accessories. The right accessories can pull together vacation basics and help you mix and match those same 3 t-shirts countless ways on your vacation. We suggest picking versatile pieces or sticking to a certain color scheme to stretch your accessory mileage on your trip. Our friends at Stella & Dot launched a new spring line that screams all things vacation! So, here’s our list of must haves for your Vacation Accessory Capsule!
When planning a killer vacation or even a weekend getaway, choosing the right bag is key! Do you need a bag to carry all of your clothing and shoes or will you use an existing suitcase? Do you need something for the beach or pool or something with lots of pockets or room to expand? I love the Arrow Print Daytripper for weekend getaways, the Navy Elephant print Getaway Bag for longer vacations, and the Reversible Voyage Tote for a great multi purpose tote for pool, beach or around town. If you have to pick one, I’d pick the Daytripper and use an old suitcase for your larger items. The Daytripper zips down so it can be used for a beach, pool or sightseeing tote and can expand if you buy or bring home more than you started with! I know that never happens (wink! wink!) but just in case it does, you’re covered!
This little travel jewelry box is a serious lifesaver! It includes space for everything from earrings in the top leather band to side pockets for rings and larger earrings. It also includes elastic bands at the top and a pocket behind for delicate necklaces so they won’t get tangled. The main compartment can be used for bracelets and statement necklaces. The dividers will help protect your jewelry in transit. This is a definite favorite purchase of mine this year.
This little bag is perfect for carrying your make-up must haves for vacation. At 8″x 3″ it’s small enough not to take up much space in your suitcase but large enough to fit all your makeup essentials like shadow, eyeliner, mascara and gloss! It coordinates with the Getaway, Daytripper and Voyage tote so you’ll still look pulled together on the road, even if your flight gets in 3-hours after its scheduled arrival time!
When traveling sometimes weather can be a bit unpredictable with breezy temps rolling in during the evenings by a beach or perhaps the air conditioning is cranked up indoors at the resort or on the airplane to and from! Either way, it’s nice to have a lightweight scarf you can use and even better to have a lightweight scarf that doubles as a poncho too! This 2-in-1 poncho scarf is great for layering over a tank dress for a dressier evening on vacation or for throwing over your shoulders on the airplane or over a t-shirt for a walk along the beach. The scarf can be folded in half where the poncho cut-out is and then worn as a regular scarf as well. It doesn’t get easier than that!
If you’re trying to conserve space in your suitcase but still want to accessorize, the Boho Setta Medallion Necklace is a great option! It includes gold and silver tones which make it easy to pair with multiple outfits on your trip. It also can be worn long like the photo on the left, or it can be doubled up for a shorter necklace or wrapped multiple times to wear as a bracelet. That’s 3 accessories in 1! Pair it long with a tank and shorts for laid back casual, then wrap it twice to wear with a dress to dinner, and finally loop it into a bracelet to wear with your cover up down to the beach!
The tassel trend shows no sign of slowing down through summer! These white beaded tassel earrings are versatile enough to pair with your casual vacation wear and glam enough to wear with a black dress for more formal dinners and vacation activities. The white beads are a standout and make a great conversation piece no matter what outfit you pair them with!
Nothing says vacation like a classic pair of aviators! These beauties come with a hard case to make travel easier and also a cleaning cloth so you can wipe off all that sunscreen and salt water that somehow manages to find its way to your sunglasses every vacation! These classics are great for vacation and will carry you all the way through summer too.
