Affordable Jewelry: Traveling in Style

Several years ago I lost a favorite bracelet on a trip. It could have fallen off at an airport, a restaurant a hotel, you name it. The point is I lost it which has trained me to never travel with precious jewelry. Family heirlooms and pieces with great sentimental value go into the safe deposit box before we leave home.

This trip to Mexico is no different. Luckily, Shop LC sent me these gorgeous blue earrings last week so they went right into the suitcase, along with my bathing suit and sunscreen.

This aqua color is one of my favorites and coordinates with a lot of my easy sundresses and hot weather clothes.

They’re technically Madagascar Paraiba Apatite Platinum Over Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings. To me they’re just beautiful. I would have expected these to be much more expensive, but they are only $55.99.

We love wandering the pathways admiring the colorful houses and unique doorways. There are multiple pools here, which my husband loves to swim laps in. Me? I plan to spend most of my time ocean side, looking for whales and decompressing with a novel.

A colorful sundress, hat, cardigan with sunscreen (zinc) built right in and polarized sunglasses are easy and comfy in hot weather.

      Target 🙂 I don’t believe in spending lots of money for cotton items that wear out quickly. This one is actually several years old so it hasn’t worn out as fast as I expected.

    Those blues look wonderful on you. That is one of my favourite hats. You wear them well. I seem to get lost in most hats. I travel with inexpensive jewellery as well after having mine stolen on a return trip from Central America. Those are pretty earrings.

    It’s raining here today. Nothing new in that. Lol That sun us making me very jealous.

      That’s worse than loosing it! It’s just not smart to travel with irreplaceable jewelry. I’ve never gotten over loosing that bracelet.

    I love how you look in hats (so good for skin). How do you handle “hat hair”? My hair is cut very similar to yours.

    Thanks! You are so inspiring!

      I handle it by keeping my hat on! If it’s evening after a long hat day, I spray with dry shampoo and heat with blow dryer and round brush to re poof it. Sometimes that helps other times it doesn’t so I’ll put it up in a clip.

    Great post! I always bring the cheap jewelry with me on a trip, especially pieces that look great with numerous outfits I’ve packed. Those hoops are precious on you! And I just love the whole ensemble…fresh, easy to pack, and even easier to wear! Looks like you had a lovely vacay. 🙂
