It’s not often that I’m dressed up wearing makeup, jewelry and fancy clothes. I’m more comfortable wearing a sensible pair of travel shoes, clothes that won’t wrinkle on an airplane and simple earrings. My idea of dressing up an outfit is adding a gorgeous scarf. Scarves keep me warm, allow me to be appropriately and respectfully dressed when traveling abroad and add color to an otherwise basic wardrobe. My new best friend is Stella and Dot for travel. While the San Francisco-based company specializes in jewelry, they offer colorful print scarves and great totes and travel bags.
Stella & Dot Personal Stylist
My friend and Stella & Dot Personal Stylist, Jane Reid, is coordinating a Stella & Dot Online Trunk Show. Shopping online is easier for those of us who opt for travel over shopping at the mall. If you need help finding the perfect accessory or have questions about the travel apparel, Jane will give you a complimentary style session.
Stella & Dot travel apparel
As travel is a large part of my job as a freelance writer, I have mastered the art of packing light. I tend to travel with solid colored outfits and accentuate with scarves and just the right piece of jewelry or pair of earrings. Jane let me borrow her Stella & Dot “Hang on” travel organizer, perfect for holding my cosmetics and earrings – it even comes with a built in hanger (yep, that’s why they call it the Hang On) for hanging on the hotel towel bar.
I packed a couple of Stella & Dot scarves, the red & black Luxembourg scarf – Wild Hearts and the black and blue Luxembourg scarf – Cerulean Tiger. Both scarves are 100% Rayon for a wrinkle-free look day and night.
Stella & Dot travel gear
I typically travel with my laptop computer and absolutely love the Tom Bihn Checkpoint Flyer bag because I don’t need to remove my computer from the bag during airport security screenings.
This trip, I brought Stella & Dot’s multistripe getaway bag with me to The Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs. With top zip closure, one exterior slip pocket and one interior zip pocket, my laptop fit easily in the travel bag and I sailed through the airport. (I also got a lot of compliments on the bag, as it served as my pool bag and spa bag, with its interior spill resistant material.)
An added bonus for this travel-savvy gal, I brought Stella & Dot’s Avalon Tote with me to Colorado and slid the geranium-colored tote (I call it a purse) inside my Getaway bag. Once in my hotel room, I stashed the Getaway bag and used the tote as my purse. Again, lots of compliments on my cute red bag!
The Elephant pouf held my charging cords, although it would serve perfectly as a cosmetics bag, too. Whether you are looking for travel scarves, travel bags or fashionable and reasonably priced jewelry, you might want to check out my online Stella & Dot trunk show. The online show is only open during the month of June, so check it out and let me know your favorite Stella and Dot for travel!
