monday musings [travel like a pro]

Monday, December 24, 2012
i don't know about you, but i feel like i do a lot of road-trip-type travelling. especially around the holidays. which [obviously] means lots of hours in the car. so as we were on our way back home [a 5 hour drive] i was musing that i should share my ideal winter travel outfit with you [i say winter because in the summer the answer is "as little as possible"].

on this christmas eve day, if you're in the car driving long distances, let's hope you're as comfy as this:

 [the north face coat, old navy sweater, james perse tee - similar,  tart leggings - similar, target scarf (in stores) & hat, h&m otk socks, tory burch boots (super old amazing sale score), rebecca minkoff mini mac, forever 21 sunglasses (old)]

[i love love love these boots]

a few quick points on why this outfit is the best for winter road trips [in my estimation anyways]:

  • there are no pants involved [because who travels in pants?]
  • the sweater and tee are super soft and comfy [big thanks to sam of samipsaloquitur for the sweater suggestion!] for impromptu passenger seat naps
  • toasty warm feet and boots that can handle those annoying [but necessary] rest stop detours
  • scarf that acts like a blanket
  • hat that covers travel hair [because seriously, whose hair looks cute when road tripping for hours? not mine]
  • you don't look like a [complete] bum
so i hope you're warm at home on this christmas eve day, but if you're not, you're ready to travel like a [comfy, stylish] pro!

p.s. make sure to check back in tomorrow for the winner of the lulu scarves giveaway!

    I can't handle hours in the car for a road trip so your list is perfect! I def can't wear jeans... yoga pants would be my best friend. lol!
