4. Pack the right shoes & add more jewelry.



TRAVEL PACKING TIPS:

  • Use linen bags from your purse or shoes to pack tee and other light-weight items.
  • Lay clothes flat stacking them on top of each other and then fold them all together. This helps to prevent creases in your clothes. NOTE - shoes go on bottom of the suitcase.
  • Tuck socks and undergarments inside your shoes to save on space.
  • Put dainty necklaces in straws and tape the ends to keep from getting tangled.
  • Pack the heaviest items by the wheels of the suitcase and work your way up to the lightest. This helps keep your suitcase balanced and easy to maneuver.

7 Jewelry Rules You Should Be Breaking

Have you ever been told not to wear fashion jewelry with fine jewelry? Or that mixing metals is wrong? Well we're here to shake up 7 traditional jewelry rules.


1. You can't wear statement necklaces with casual outfits.

You can absolutely wear a statement necklace with something as casual as a t-shirt or sweater. Don't miss out on wearing your favorite pieces just because you don't have a formal occasion on the calendar!

2. You can't wear a watch with bracelets.
