Travelling - Modern Gypsy Style

July 02, 2014

 

This summer we're so obsessed with bright pops of colour, mixing prints & textures, and feeling comfy and cute, all at the same time. Especially on vacation. Here's out top 3 tips for traveling like a true modern gypsy.

  1. Pick versatile pieces that go with everything. Ok, let's be real. Everybody hates packing. It's time-consuming, the right things are never clean, and it feels like an ordeal to try to plan what you're going to need. The trick is to choose pieces that work in multiple ways and that you can wear in different situations. Long, flowy dresses are great as both a beach cover-up and with a change of shoes, perfect for a nice dinner out. The right patterned shorts can do double-duty for a city tour and also work for an evening at the pub. Make sure the things in your suitcase work in at least two different situations, and you'll be covered for everything with half the clothing.
  2. Make a statement with accessories. While you may be sticking to smart, multi-use, neutral clothing options, you definitely don't have to stay safe with your accessories. Here's where you get to play. Since they take up so much less room than clothes, make some fun choices here. Bring some bright leather bangles, colourful and lightweight statement earrings, or a great scarf to accessorize (plus it will keep you warm in a pinch on a chilly plane ride)!
  3. Bring three pairs of shoes. MAX! The temptation to load up on shoe options is so strong, but trust us, you only need three! Keep it to a cute athletic pair for days when you will be on your feet exploring (plus wear these on the plane to free up extra room), a chic sandal for dinners out, and if the beach is on your agenda, don't forget your flip flops!!
