Trendy Travel Tips
It’s time to pack up your suitcase and hit the road! Whether you’re spending the summer road tripping across America or taking weekend vacations to the lake, here are some tips for looking fashionable while on your next adventure.
Stay comfortable: Wear comfy ballet flats or sandals to ensure you’re looking and feeling your best. Loose clothing is essential, such as a dress or fun shirt and shorts. Incorporate layers into your outfit so you can easily adjust whether hot or cold.
Pack your staples: Packing clothing that is versatile and can be worn with various outfits is a way to reduce luggage space. Some popular staples are V-necks, jeans, jean shorts, solid shirts and a skirt. Don’t be afraid to mix and match!
Be smart with accessories: Accessories are easily lost when traveling because they’re so small. An easy hack is to place the accessories in individual Zip-Loc bags so they don’t tangle together. Make sure to bring accessories that match multiple outfits. Jewelry with both gold and silver tones are ideal, so they can match a warm or cool outfit. Stack your Busy Girl Bangles to incorporate both!

April showers bring May flowers … and cute outfits. Here’s your guide to dressing for the spring weather!
Colors – Spring colors are self-explanatory. Pastels such as pinks, blues, greens and yellows are complemented by the beautiful weather. It won’t be Labor Day anytime soon – throw on some white, too!
Garments – The weather is starting to heat up, but sometimes there’s a 20 degree difference between when you leave in the morning and get back in the afternoon. Cue our favorite outfit – a spring dress (or romper) and a light cardigan. A tip for the trade is to leave a neutral-colored sweater in your car for quick convenience. Make sure to break out the sandals and wedges again.
Accessories – The best colored accessories to complement spring colors are white and brown. When wearing a colorful outfit, whether a mix or a solid color, neutral colored jewelry is the way to go. It’s fun to add a pop of color when wearing white or denim color. Statement earrings and necklaces are essential to add the extra “oomph.”
The Busy Girl Bangle goes with any color, any season. The colorful bands will pop with any outfit, and the rose gold, silver and gold options match other jewelry. Get your bangle here!

The History of the Bangle
Bangles are characterized as closed, circular arm accessories that are traced back to 2600 B.C. The Mohenjo-Daro settlements of Pakistan are reportedly the “trendsetters” of this jewelry. Their famous statue “Dancing Girl,” discovered in 1873, is 4,500 years old and depicts a teenage girl wearing bangles up her arm.
Bangles were made out of glass, shells, wood, stone, gold and everything in between. In India, they are still used today to represent marital status. Different colors of bangles can represent levels of happiness, the health of family, luck, guidance and many other symbols. The meanings vary between families and regions. Bangles have also been traced back to ancient Mayan and Roman ruins.
In the twenty-first century, bangles have morphed into a fashion statement at all corners of the globe. In places like Rajasthan, the tradition of wearing bangles as a representation of life has become obsolete. Similar to us, the younger generations now wear bangles as an ornament to their outfit. The bangle is now considered a shiny and fun accessory, and the Busy Girl Bangle is a timeless addition to any outfit.

Celebrating Women's History Month
March is Women’s History Month, and we’re happy to celebrate all the wonderful women who have made strides for us to have the rights we have today. We want to spotlight women who are not only known for the great deeds they’ve done, but have also shown a great sense of style while being a busy girl. Here are some of our favorites:
CoCo Chanel –
Coco Chanel is as relevant today as she was in the early 1920s. Growing up in a French orphanage, CoCo educated and created a name for herself. Not only did she spawn the glorified Chanel No. 5 perfume, she also revolutionized women’s fashion. She slowly weeded out the corset and emphasized making fashion comfortable for women. By borrowing from men’s clothing, she created the style of the Chanel suit, which is still worn by professional women around the world. You know the phrase “little black dress?” CoCo Chanel invented it! Previously worn only in mourning, Chanel morphed the color into a chic evening style.
Audrey Hepburn –
Audrey Hepburn popularized CoCo Chanel’s “little black dress.” Paired with big pearls and an elegant hairstyle, Audrey translated her on-screen fashion to the real world. Audrey was frequently spotted in modest necklines and diamond earrings and showed simple can also be chic. Most importantly, Audrey was a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and a recipient of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Reward. Her passion for working with UNICEF stemmed from her experience growing up during the Nazi occupation of Holland.
Jackie Kennedy –
It’s been argued that Jackie Kennedy was the most fashionable first-lady of the past. She kept her style clean and light, always accessorizing her solid-colored outfits. From her baby blue to her pastel pink suits, Jackie led the way for colors of the 60s. Not only was she a fashionable role model, she also made extensive good-will visits to third world countries and became a book editor.
This #WomensHistoryMonth we are committed to appreciating the many women of the past! These role models inspire us to be a #BusyGirl even more.
