  • Life x Style 048 (travel style essentials)

    Today’s post is all about having travel on my mind and a peak into what ‘travel style’ looks like for me.

    You may have noticed that I wrote about having a benchmark birthday a few weeks ago. As a gift, my husband planned a dream trip to The South of France (a place I’ve been coveting for a long time).

    Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ve chosen to postpone this trip. But, I’m faithful that in due time we will take that trip.

    So for now…I’ve got travel on my mind. I’ll be standing by patiently/ anxiously/ eagerly awaiting my next European vacation.

    Bon soir.

    My personal travel style will always include some mixture of the following:

    large wrap
    flats
    hat
    denim
    blazer (or leather moto)
    few pieces of sentimental jewelry (usually from my mother-in-law who passed just 10 years ago)

     

    Shown here:
    cashmere oversized wrap: Catherine Robinson Cashmere
    blazer: Banana Republic (8 years ago)

    “When I think of cashmere an understated luxury comes to my mind, a softness, an ageless elegance – the timelessness of style.” -Catherine Robinson

    Cashmere:

    do.not.leave.home.without.it.

    Chances are- your plane will be cold. Or, if you’re anything like me, no matter where you’re going, there’ll be an opportunity to be cold. Travel light, but bring a wrap. You’ll look stylish no matter what you have on, and you’ll always be warm, and if there are any foul smells on your flight (always seems to happen), you can cover your nose with your wrap, and still look perfectly chic.

    A little bit about this essential oversized cashmere wrap, from one of my Instagram style-crushes, English designer Catherine Robinson. All of her 100% cashmere products are made from Mongolian goat. She has worked closely with her manufacturer to assure they support the herding communities to achieve greater financial security, healthier herds and cashmere of unsurpassed quality. I’m thrilled to have connected with her on the inter-webs and hope to one day connect in person as well.

     

     

    Even upon opening the box {sent via Royal Mail} it was an uplifting introduction to the luxury contained within. Her knitwear is beautifully wrapped in tissue, topped with a cameo infused with her signature scent Grace. So beautiful, I hardly wanted to open it up!

     

    Please check out Catherine’s website for more on her cashmere designs. And one of my favorite things about her- in addition to her luxury brand, she has an engaging blog and Instagram where she shares her high vibes, inspiring style, and empowering content.

     

     

    Get involved. Become part of the movement for a healthier, more sustainable fashion world. I believe that together we can change the face of fashion.  Wear what you love and wear what empowers you. Also consider where your clothes were made and who made them. Your purchase may empower the person who made them (or not). Shop wisely.

    Ciao!

    Ciao!

     

     

    Every purchase is a vote. Make yours count. Dress in clothing you love and that have a positive impact on you and the rest of the world.

    *The items featured on this blog are what I consider sustainable fashion and/or are items I have owned for a very long time- which I consider a sustainable fashion choice simply for the longevity of it.
