We're just a couple of days away from Labor Day weekend. Which means before we say goodbye to summer we still have plenty of time to drink rosé, spend lazy days at the beach, cookout, travel overseas or chill poolside. We still have one more weekend to hang on to summer and squeeze in our last getaway. 

No matter where you''ll be spending Labor Day SOPHIE BLAKE NY has the breakdown of the five essentials to pack for the last weekend of summer.

Travel Cases 

Investing in sturdy yet stylish travel cases are crucial for organized packing. Everyone knows that jewelry can be an absolute packing nightmare. Having a travel case ensures all the small and intricate accessories pieces don't wander off, or become knotted or destroyed that render the entire piece useless.

Our jewelry case in collaboration with Hudson & Bleecker is perfect for packing statement pieces in the large drawstring pocket, store rings and earrings on the interior magnetic snap bars

Versatile Jewelry 

Jewelry accessories that are versatile enough to pair with different outfits can save you time in packing and will give you the confidence of being put together. SOPHIE BLAKE jewelry accessories like the Selena Bracelet and Marta Pendant are minimal and classic pieces that are perfectly interchangeable with any outfit --- no matter the occasion.

Tip #1: Bring only two necklaces: an everyday necklace and a fancier necklace. 

Wear the everyday necklace while traveling like the Gloria Pendant and pack the fancier one that is longer and good for layering.

*Extra Tip: Pack the second necklace in a plastic bag and drape the clasp out and seal the bag with a bread tie leaving a small section of the chain on the outside of the bag and --- Voilà! tangle free necklaces!
