Escape in Style: Gretchen Jones
Who better to offer travel tips then folks who travel on the search for inspiration? We touched base with a few of our fave fashion world insiders to give us the lowdown. Stay tuned for more of these interviews throughout the month.
GRETCHEN JONES, DESIGNER
Escape: I truly loved my time in Colombia. South America is so rich in history, culture and landscape, yet there’s a thread that ties each of the countries together, which I find very special. And a girl like me can’t get enough of the artisan crafts from the indigenous peoples. It’s so inspiring and vivid. Don’t even get me started on the variance of landscape!
Must-Haves: I tend to get too hot or too cold in a matter of moments, so layering is a must. My trusty vintage jean jacket goes with anything, be it a bikini or fancy dress (a la, effortless cool). A yummy scarf can be used for so many reasons it’s a major must regardless of the time of year. Good, functional, and flirty clogs are my go-to shoe these days, they bring out my bohemian hippie chick, go with everything, and keep my tootsies primed for sight seeing.
Next Stop: I’m off to Sonoma Valley in California for a week in the Redwoods with wine! What’s not to love about that?
