Yes it’s Winter, yes it’s freezing! We seem to be spending more time indoors, and no doubt you have been scrolling on Facebook or Instagram, seeing happy snaps from people enjoying the Mediterranean sun. Oh… so you are one of them and travelling soon too? We are jealous! Lucky you! But are you ready, and have you packed your suitcase, fit for a fashion editor?
Yes, we hear you, you are struggling as everyone has Winter items on the shelf, and no doubt you have left it to the last minute. Don’t worry, Dutchess Martha is here to assist with some packing advice, and your Summer essentials
No matter how precisely you plan your itinerary, the best vacations start with a thoughtfully stocked suitcase. So how come the plane tickets are booked, the hotel room is reserved, yet the larger task of what to bring is often left for last? That luggage of yours is only so big, and you need to be prepared for whatever awaits at that destination!
Jewellery. One thing we forget to pack or don’t give much notice to is costume jewellery. Those long dangly earrings or statement necklace, can take your summer day dress to an evening outfit. Best of all is that they don’t take much room. Our new pieces have just landed, and there is definitely something for everyone
Sunglasses. Pack a playful, less expensive pair. One you can wear at the beach, on adventures walks, anywhere. Our new range of ROC sunglasses have just landed, which are perfect for the travel essentials.
Kaftans, jumpsuits… can you ever have enough? They add color and fun to any trip. Another bonus is that they don’t take much room in your suitcase. Your beach kaftan is a must, and a long maxi or jumpsuit to take into the evening. Dutchess Martha is the queen of kaftans, and we have many styles and colours to suit everyone.
To match you kaftans, sandals are key. We recommend at least 2 pairs of sandals. Your basic pair, that matches everything! Rose gold, gold or tan. You can dress them up or down. Leather is a must, and a rubber sole (for extra comfort and support). Your second pair should be fun (think pom poms, embellishments)! We have a huge selection of sandals from Ammos Accessories, which will make you feel like a goddess on your trip (and are the most comfortable sandals you will wear).
Bon Voyage, have fun and see you at Dutchess Martha to fit you, with all your travel essentials.
