Jewelry Options for Travel {Violet & Brooks}

Jewelry Options for Travel featuring Violet and Brooks | Travel Like a Prince Blog

I love packing for travel! I tend to pick my best outfits and try to coordinate my looks while maximizing everything from jewelry to shoe combinations so that I don’t overpack. Recently I visited California, and I documented my time – and my looks – through the lens of jewelry options from Violet & Brooks jewelry. From tassels to pin sets, I had so much fun. All of the photos below are taken either with outstretched arms or my self-timer, so I’d love to hear any feedback. On to my looks!

This post is in partnership with Violet & Brooks, and I appreciate their generosity. I also will be chatting about Hotel Los Gatos and Graduate Berkeley, which both gave me complimentary stays – I can’t wait to showcase them in the future!

Day One Daytime – Hotel Los Gatos

I arrived at the Hotel Los Gatos in Los Gatos, CA a day early so that I could explore on my own. And boy, did I have fun! I pulled on a Free People turtleneck tank and slim denim skirt to head out and about. I loved the town and had a great time! Bonus points go to the hotel for having a fab outdoor area all to myself right outside of my door for photographing these looks. So fun!!

Here is what I wore as jewelry options from Violet & Brooks:

  • Blythe Bloom Earring in Mauve (see here)
  • May Hair Clip Quartet in Whites (see here)
  • Bloom Flower Brooch in Pink (see here)

I adore the hair clips (in ANY style). They are sturdy and keep my hair intact. I have fine, curly hair that can become super unruly in any humidity, so I can especially appreciate these to hold the tiny wisps of hair up. Of course, the earrings are fun, and they are so lightweight, which my ears appreciate. The floral pin is so feminine, and it was a nice touch!

Day One Evening – Hotel Los Gatos

My time at Hotel Los Gatos started with an evening cocktail hour in getting to know others on our trip, so I put on one of my favorite dresses from Anthropologie and paired it with a few fun looks including my L’Artiste shoes that are so versatile!

Here is what I’m wearing as jewelry options from Violet & Brooks:

  • Olivia Tassel Earring in White (see here)
  • May Hair Clip Quartet in Whites (see here)

Again, these hair clips are great! The first look featured the patterned clips in the set, and my look below includes the solid colored ones. To be transparent, my hair is in a small band. I flipped the hair inward so that you can’t see the band, and I added the clip as an accent. And can I just have a moment with those earrings? When I received them, I thought they were NOT my style, but was I wrong. They are also lightweight, and I LOVE THEM!

Day Two Morning – Hotel Los Gatos

This day started out slow and relaxing, which was just my speed. The good thing about heading to the West Coast is that my body and mind is still on East Coast time. It’s a bear at night, but it’s great for waking up refreshed and ready to go! I had a few moments before breakfast to grab photos in a casual outfit before I headed to breakfast at Hotel Los Gatos and then a massage at Verde Touch Spa.

Jewelry options from Violet and Brooks:

  • Rhea Beaded Hoop Earring in White (see here)
  • Edie Hair Pin Troupe in Greige (see here)
  • Party Tassel Bracelet in Orange/Grey (see here)

Again, I can’t get over the lightweight feel of the earrings. It’s great to have larger earrings that don’t hurt. The tiny sparkly bobby pins are the perfect accents, and the bracelet was a great way to add a bit of flair to my wrist. Adorable!

Day Two Afternoon – Hotel Los Gatos

Having just a few moments after a super relaxing massage, I threw on this dress from Effie’s Heart, put up my hair and hit the road to Testarossa Winery – but not before grabbing pictures. I felt so comfortable, yet I only had a small amount of time to get my look together. Plus, I was in that post-massage haze. Ha!

Here are a few more jewelry options via Violet & Brooks:

  • Priscilla Hair Clip Duet in Rose Gold (see here)
  • Savannah Scatter Pin Set in Green (see here)
  • Iris Earring Trio in Olive (see here)

Be sure to notice the tiny scatter pins as an accent on the dress. So cute! And these hair clips are my favorite set. I truly do love the way they look. They have become a daily go-to for me!

Day Three Evening – Graduate Berkeley

So, confession here. I’m not that great at directions, but it’s SO easy in the area of California I was in. I found my way to BART, which took me all the way to Berkeley. There I stayed at the beautiful Graduate Berkeley, and I checked something off of my list. I went and sang karaoke for 5 hours straight. Ha! It was fab – I loved it. Below is what I changed into to go and rock songs straight out of the 80s. I mean we could all use a bit more Pat Benatar and Duran Duran in our lives, right?

Take a peek at my Violet & Brooks jewelry options:

  • Iris Earring Trio in Olive (see here)
  • Priscilla Hair Clip Duet in Rose Gold (see here)

I had such a great time, and thank goodness for Lyft. I navigated my way around by walking to karaoke but making it safely back to the hotel. You’ll also see that the jewelry I wore were ones from prior looks.

Day Four Morning – Graduate Berkeley

Ah! This was my last day and the one where I headed to the airport. Boo! But I had a great night’s sleep at Graduate Berkeley. the room was decorated in such a fun way – notice the composition book style directory. Too cute! Here I sported a pair of earrings you’ve seen before AND I must confess that I actually have two sets of the hair clips. Yes, I love them that much! Oh, and my cute pjs are from GAP.
