Tips for Traveling with Jewelry

travel_tips_by_CarrieTraveling with jewelry can be a tricky task, even for the most seasoned traveler. Deciding what to pack, how to pack it, or what to pack it in may leave you frustrated.
It has happened that (in a mad dash to get out the door) I have opted to travel only with the jewelry that I had on and nothing else. As Julia Roberts once proclaimed, “Big mistake. Big. Huge!” Look, I’m not the girliest of girls and I don’t have piles of sparkly things lying around (I mean, they’re medium-sized piles), but I do love jewelry. I love the way a colorful necklace can take an ordinary outfit and make it a conversation starter. I love the way I feel when I switch from simple studs and flats to chandelier earrings and heels for an evening out. There’s no reason why you or I shouldn’t be able to enjoy our favorite jewelry and accessories when we’re away from home, right? Follow these tips for traveling with jewelry and I guarantee you’ll save yourself time, money, and the regret of under-accessorizing.

While most people love to travel, I (seriously) LOVE to travel and everything that comes along with it.

No problem. I’ll send you my recommended sites list. Which airport should you fly into? I got it. Know a good travel app? I’m your girl.

I find inexplicable comfort and pleasure in planning, coordinating, investigating, packing, unpacking, and even packing for others. I’ve done it with my eyes closed and one arm tied behind my back. True story. Check out my Top Ten Tips for Packing Luggage blog to get started and come back for the latest and greatest in travel advice and know-how!
