We're going to be away over the holidays and with just a matter of days to go, I am trying not to hyperventilate over imminent deadlines, packing and stuff. In a way, clearing off makes Christmas easier. I've sort of agreed not to exchange gifts with close friends and family (if you fall into that category and I haven't explained my new approach to the festive season, consider yourself told) which appears to have taken the stress out of the preparations. So far. Obviously, I'll be leaving what to wear till the very last-minute, but one thing I do know is that my Liz Taylor-on-a-budget earrings are coming with me. Throwing on sparkly jewellery is the easiest way to upgrade any outfit, wherever you are.
Small chandelier earrings are perfect for travel: the first pair are Lulu Frost - I have a couple of the pieces she designed for Whistles and they are always commented upon - and below are J Crew. The jewellery and Jenna Lyons are the best things about that brand:

And I've found a perfectly packable jewellery box. From new label Stow who stock a fine selection of styles in brightly coloured leathers that would make lovely Christmas gifts. If only I was buying them this year...
What are your plans for the festive season?
