travel ready: Charm Georgetown

Whether you travel for a living or just like taking mini vacas, it never hurts to lock down smart travel skills. One of the things I am constantly troubled with is trying to choose which accessories make the cut. Because I ALWAYS over pack the clothes and shoes, I’m never able to get all of my favorite jewelry and bags into the suitcase. This stresses me out because everything I own is technically my favorite. So not only do I try to pile (literally) everything in, but I can’t even make it work. The end result is usually an extra suit case paired with a $50 additional-bag-fee and a wild sight of me trying to lug two suitcases, a laptop bag and purse through the airport. No bueno. 

When I was approached by one of my favorite jewelry boutiques, Charm Georgetown, to feature some of their travel-ready accessories from their range of collections, I was ready to take on the challenge. I initially thought there is NO way I can choose just a few items and make them work for a full trip. With all of the gorgeous baubles and perfect accessories in this cute little storefront, I never would have imagined that I could find the key pieces that would serve as not only great versatile staple items but they were also super chic AND affordable. From jewelry to bags to hats and scarves, Charm has every travel accessory you could ever want. 

We selected a few pieces to complete your already packed travel wardrobe below:

Bon Voyage Cosmetic Cases – ($33-$55)
These cosmetic cases are not only super adorable, but they are functional and budget friendly! Perfect for your makeup, jewelry and even those lacey undergarments  the fun colors and trendy print of these cosmetic cases are sure to keep even your ticked-away bags stylish.

Bindya Tribal Print Scarves –($40-$145)

A printed scarf can take your casual-comfy travel wear and turn it into a look that is paparazzi ready. Throwing one of these gorgeous Bindya scarves over a white tee and jeans for the plane or with a flowy maxi dress for a night out in Bali make this versatile item a must-have for travel accessories.

Melissa Shoes Jelly Flats –($70-$80)

We’ve all seen those women who are strutting through the airport in 5-inch heels looking extremely stylish but extremely uncomfortable. You can also achieve a chic look without the pain by pairing these jelly flats with anything from a pair of cargo shorts to a skirt & tee combo. Transition these beauties to vaca-ready by tossin’ them on for dinner or a walk through downtown.

Deepa Gurnani Hair Jewelry – ($22-$79)

I love a good headband – especially one that is blinged out and super trendy like these Deepa Gurnani hair accessories. The perfect piece to accompany any look, these headbands are another great travel must have.

Moyna Wood Bead Tribal Print Clutches – ($158-$218)
JJ Winters Rose Gold Faux Snake Skin Large Envelope Clutch – ($130)

This is a no brainer. Clutches are the perfect travel necessity. It is just impossible to pack every purse and bag we own for a trip, regardless of the length. One tool I always use is to pack or carry one larger purse like a hobo or tote and also bring a versatile clutch. This way, you have something for day, something for night. And what better way to party the night away than with these beautiful beaded clutches!

Moyna Clutch – ($245)
Hat Attack Panama Hat with White Ribbon ($80)
Kris Nations Red and Blue Triangle Drop Earrings: ($57)
Julie Elizabeth Collection Flower Drop Round Earrings: ($128)
This is one of my favorite pairings the ladies at Charm put together. Truly showing you how to take one theme and turn it into a full collection of travel-ready pieces. The panama hat is perfect for day-of-travel and is easily transitioned onto a sunny beach. And these earrings…talk about amazing! You can pair them with both casual and dressy looks allowing you to downsize on the number of pieces you actually have to pack. Again with the importance of a clutch, and I love this as an option!

Charm Jewelry Antique Gold Spike Tribal Necklace: ($40)
Charm Jewelry Miscellaneous Resin Flower Drop Earrings in various colors: ($22)

Sometimes you only need one or two statement pieces and these Charm designs will do just the trick. A tribal-inspired necklace is not only on major trend right now, but it can be dressed up or down for countless looks and pairings. These earrings are also the perfect travel companion. Having a pair of earrings featuring various colors allows you to style them with almost any outfit – definitely ideal.

Commando Better Than Nothing Underwear: ($20)

And the most important of them all…the invisible underwear. I know what you’re thinking…”what?!” I thought the same thing until the ladies at Charm did some explaining. These are designed to literally appear invisible under any garment. Perfect for a slim fitting dress, sparkly mini or even linen pants, these are the PERFECT travel must-have. Tiny in size and in the cutest prints, these might be my favorite item so far 🙂

So, who’s ready for a vacation! Next time your planning your trip, make sure you stop by Charm Georgetown and pick up some travel necessities like the ones above. And tell them Lauren sent you 🙂
