Two months into my trip with the same backpack of clothing, there has never been a time when the arrival of new accessories was more needed! Chrysalis have come to my rescue with an assortment of pic’n’mix goodies in the form of jewellery, all with a hidden meaning that makes me love them even more!
Inspired by travel, Chrysalis was set up by a young couple with the intention of creating something that’s not only beautiful to look at, but has a special meaning to the wearer. Andrea designs all of the collections with her creative team in Somerset, UK and releases four new collections a year. She was inspired to create her own brand after traveling the world collecting treasures from each country and selling them back at Portobello Market.

*Blue Topaz Bangle // *Fire White Wrap Bangle
*Endless Love Ring // *Gemini Necklace // *Autumn Silver Wrap Bangle // *Aquamarine Bangle
Here I’m wearing the Gemini necklace, I love anything that has some kind of link to me and my personality! The double pentant’s look so pretty together and sit perfectly alongside that shape of my top, don’t you think?! I’ve also stacked up some of the bracelets, the Aquamarine bangle encourages hope and calm, emphasis on the calm for me!
Whether you believe in the hidden meanings or not, you can’t escape the fact that they are beautiful pieces whilst still being simple so that rather than taking the spotlight, they compliment your look in the most subtle way!
These shorts have pretty much become my failsafe, I don’t know why I even bothered bringing any other bottoms! My biggest packing regret is not bringing my beloved denim skirt which I see featured on my sisters instagram daily – she’s taking full advantage of my wardrobe whilst I’m away clearly.
With one pair of shorts in rotation and only a handful of tops that are actually suitable of both the climate and culture of most countries we’ve been in. My outfit combinations are limited to say the least! That has to be one of the things I am missing the most is my wardrobe – I know how vein that makes me sound!!!
This is why it was so lovely to have some newness from Chrysalis and you guys know how much I love anything to do with Karma, Mindfulness and positivity!

*Blue Topaz Bangle // *Air Silver Wrap Bangle // *Karma Ring
In this shot I’m wearing the Blue Topaz bangle which signifies faith and good fortune. I’ve stacked it with the Air silver wrap bangle for tranquility. Faith, good fortune and tranquility sounds like the perfect combination for travelling right!?
I love the way I can stack them all up and wear as many or little as I want. I’m definitely more for the subtle look though so thought I would keep it simple with just a couple that compliment one another.
Did you see my other post about the different ways to wear this dress here?! I’m putting it to work as a top now! This is probably my favourite way to wear it rather than as a dress, I love the way it flows down. I feel like when I get back to the UK I’ll be wearing my dresses over jeans all of the time! I’m not ready to put them away yet!
What I love about the bangles & wraps is that they’re expandable so I can wear them wherever I like on my arms. I love to wear them also just below my elbow!
