Today’s the day! We’re checking out early this week and heading to Europe for a long (and much-needed) Thanksgiving break. I’m so looking forward to checking out for a bit and taking some time to just breathe and relax.

While I was packing last night I realized I had a major problem. I was about to risk embarrassing myself by seriously overpacking for a week long stay and needed to cut back. Rather than bringing a new sweater and pair of shoes for every day (seriously guys, it was bad), I decided to focus on packing a few things that would look good in every situation.

When traveling, my advice is to stick to the basics and bring simple, but gorgeous accessories like these from gold pieces from Melinda Maria to dress up your look. Why? Jewelry doesn’t take up near as much space in your suitcase and mixing up accessories can make an outfit look brand new.

I’m in love with these simple and delicate necklaces. I love wearing them layered, but have also found myself wearing them individually and even mixing metals by pairing them with other pieces. These bangles can also be worn together or separately and definitely dress up this outfit making it perfect for dinner or a night out.

This look proves that simple jewelry can add so much texture and interest to an otherwise simple all black outfit. The best part is that I feel pulled together, comfortable and confident and those are all things I don’t want to sacrifice on when I’m traveling.
