What Aurélie Bidermann Packs in Her Suitcase for Thanksgiving
Why head home for Thanksgiving when you can embark on an epic, drama-free vacation? That's been the trend for the fashion set as of late—just ask Aurélie Bidermann. The French jeweler, known for her expertly crafted bohemian designs, didn't grow up celebrating Turkey Day, so she has no qualms about spending the long weekend suntanning and traipsing all over the pink sand beaches with her family, including newborn daughter, Rose, on their annual retreat to Harbour Island in the Bahamas.

Here, Bidermann shares her travel essentials: a flowy maxi dress, sleek slides, statement earrings, and more.
Lisa Marie Fernandez Dress
"My vacation style is a mix of bohemian and tropical. I love to mix and match a white linen dress or a fun print with a bunch of statement accessories."
STELLA LUNA SANDALS
"These Stella Luna slides are the most comfortable shoes. I can easily dress them up or down and I love the bright red color and gold hardware."
SISLEY SUNSCREEN SPF 50
"It's so important to wear a daily SPF, but even more so while in the hot, Harbour Island sun all day. Sisley makes a wonderful sunscreen with SPF 50 that protects your skin while also moisturizing."
Aurélie Bidermann Pistil Earrings
"I wear my jewelry every day, and vacation for me is no different. One of my favorite pieces to wear on the beach is these Pistil earrings. They are bright, feminine flowers and add a pop of color to any outfit."
ERES BANDEAU SWIMSUIT
"Eres makes the most flattering bathing suits in solids and prints. You can find me living in this chic one-piece style."
GLOSSIER BOY BROW
"I am loving Glossier products at the moment, especially Boy Brow. I like to keep my daily makeup routine pretty minimal on vacation, so this product thickens and grooms my eyebrows and adds the perfect finishing touch."
SMYTHSON BRIGHT IDEAS NOTEBOOK
"Travel has always been a very rich source of inspiration for my collections. I bring a notebook on every trip because I find myself jotting down ideas or sketching designs inspired by the vibrant colors or unique cultures of the places I visit."
Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien Perfume
"Since I started wearing perfume in my teenage years, I have always been drawn to fresh scents. They are familiar to me and I find that the citrus scent of this perfume is very clean and easy to wear every day."
Céline Round Framed Sunglasses
"Céline sunglasses are chic and timeless and the soft case makes them easy to pack in my bag. I love the light tortoise shell color of these frames."
The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again) By Andy Warhol
"Aside from jewelry, art is another passion of mine. I grew up surrounded by art and went on to study art history and work at Sotheby's. This book is entertaining and great travel reading material, especially if you are a fan of Andy Warhol."
LEICA Q DIGITAL CAMERA
"Even in the era of the iPhone, I will always use a real camera to capture quality photos of my travels and other special moments, especially since I gave birth to Rose. The photos taken on my Leica are so clear and beautiful, they all deserve to be framed!"
RE/DONE DENIM JACKET
"When the temperature drops at night, I throw on my Re/Done jean jacket. It's perfect for the plane, too."
CHANEL LE VERNIS NAIL POLISH
"Canotier is my perfect shade of gold—it's neutral with a hint of shimmer."
