Once the presents have been opened and the house guests have come and gone you can finally look forward to your post-holiday escape. If you are jetting off to somewhere exotic and warm lined with white sandy beaches why not splurge on yourself and spend those gift cards straight away some new luxe beach-worthy essentials.
Indulge in some Marni oversized shades ($455 at Net-a-Porter) for protecting your eyes from the sun, considering you haven’t seen actual sunlight during these past couple months of snow and sleet. Defrost and decompress under a full 8″ wide large brimmed straw hat ($24.99 at Buy.com), perfect for hiding from harsh UV rays as you bask pool side. Stash your travelers checks, tickets and passport in a super stylish basic leather travel wallet from Smythson ($340 at Net-a-Porter). Inside you’ll find compartments marked ‘Boarding Pass’, ‘Currency’, ‘Passport’, ‘Tickets’, and ‘other’. What is more glam than this shade of fuchsia leather? Pack up the rest of your essentials in an travel tote like this Stella McCartney oversized technical taffeta tote ($785 at Net-a-Porter). The tote is embellished with gold toned hardware, a long shoulder strap to wear messenger style and sports internal zipped and pouch pockets to keep you organized and tidy on the road to paradise. For all of the beauty items that won’t fit in your tote, toss them into this gorgeous Erdem Globe Trotter vanity case ($595 at Net-a-Porter). The red case is accented with gold-tone hardware and black leather trim. The heirloom quality case is worthy of your most prized accessories and beauty essentials as you step thru the boarding gate in pure jetsetter style. Bon voyage!
