As an escape from the tail end of NYC winter, our founder Georgia is heading to the cute as a button island of St Barths in the Caribbean this week. After asking to be taken with her, we settled on a packing list of holiday essentials instead. Below a quick outtake of how Georgia is packing for her trip, and what Hobes will make the cut!
"Travelling for me has always been about packing light. I only ever carry on if I can help it. So that means a couple of pairs of Hobes which will take me from day to night, the airport to the beach and back home to either NYC or Melbourne."
"Plane travel means time to switch off and rest. So a big cashmere wrap and silk scarf are always key ingredients along with a soft pair of Boat Hobes and Clare Vivier fold over - to hold all the travel necessities."
"I always travel with silk separates, they are so versatile, so lightweight and ideal for layering. A good book, some Illestiva sunglasses and Boat Hobes form the basis of my travel essentials."
"A real vacation for me means keeping things very simple, casual and undone. Everyone who knows me understands denim + Hobes are the basis of my wardrobe. Add a silk shirt, a clutch, some metallic Hobes and I’m set for the evening."
"My love for the beach runs deep. So anytime I go on vacation, some sand, a good dose of Vitamin D and plenty of time in the water is important. I love a one piece so I can really swim without worrying about my swimwear staying in place! And, all I need to do is throw on a pair of shorts, some Boat Hobes and I’m lunch ready."
"Rompers and overalls are a big favourite. Again, versatility is key. This soft denim pair is from one of my favourite stores in the city - Personnel of NYC. It works over swimwear during the day, or with a shirt and Rose Gold Metallic Hobes for night."
"Australian brands make up large part of my wardrobe. This State of Escape tote has been with me for years, and is as ideal for a beach getaway as it is for summer in the city. A classic stripe tee, pair of Industry Standard Romy’s and Cool Grey Boat Hobes fit any day time adventure."
"The line up! The 3 pairs of Hobes packed for this quick summer escape." Gx
