The Billie Backpack is a must as you explore sites from historic landmarks to museums. This backpack carries everything from guidebooks to snacks.

Margie Blouse ethical sustainable organic People Tree floral summer wearwell

Margie Blouse

A full day of exploring means you’ll need to be comfortable while looking put-together, so a classic pair of jeans is worth the suitcase space. Opt for the timeless Scarlet Mid Rise Slim Jeans, which will pair perfectly with the Margie Blouse and your favorite pair of sneakers or walking-friendly sandals.

International Adventure

The most experienced jet-setter will tell you that packing pieces that coordinate with each other ensures you pack light and save space for souvenirs! Take a look at our capsule wardrobe post for inspiration or try these outfits out for your international holiday:

Maxi Skirt upcycled tonle wearwell sustainable ethical

Maxi Skirt

While a pair of dark wash jeans are great for international travel, never snooze on a maxi skirt! They’re comfy for long plane rides and give you an effortless “dress up” option for an evening out. The Maxi Skirt will pair with just about any top, but we love it with the Nuon Top or the Rhea Rib Top

The Nicole Bodysuit also looks fantastic underneath the Chaya Dress for a casual day of exploring new places and eating new foods. Later, ditch the top and wear just the dress for a nice evening out, maybe to see a local music performance!

When traveling abroad, opt for bags that offer convenience and easy access to your passport and travel essentials, like the Cruza Sling Belt Bag or the Luna Bag. The Jewelry Box is a very travel-friendly way of keeping your favorite jewelry pieces organized and tangle-free!
