There’s nothing quite like going home from the holidays!
Today’s post is all about holiday travel style – because airport style is super important, am I right? For me traveling is all about being conformable first, practical second and cute third. I look at those airport pics that bloggers post sometimes and think – they HAVE to be checking a bag because no one can run through the airport in sneaker wedges or a midi skirt – I don’t care how early you show up!
Looking Airport-Chic is totally fine and dandy if you have serious room in your suitcase – but I have to share a secret with you, I’m TERRIFIED of checking a bag, so I never, ever do it! I just know ALL my stuff will get lost and that’s not worth it. So I pack crazy smart, and small and never, EVER check a bag! SO that means I have to wear my biggest pieces – I.E. my coat and OTK boots.
When I’m traveling to somewhere warmer (like Arizona which is home for me) I wear something like this – a sweater dress and Over The Knee boots. Since I land mid day AZ time I’ll be going straight from the airport to exploring my home state, so I want to be able to shed my jacket and fit right in! This sweater dress is comfortable enough to fly in and cute enough to wear all day.
To keep things “me” I brought my bright suitcase that I accessorized with double poms! I choose red for my suit case color because 90% of the time I’m wearing a red lip, so it never really clashes! I travel with my a little backpack and my laptop (which is technically three items not two) but I always walk on the plane with my laptop and magazines in my hand and they never give me any issues.
I hope you’re going somewhere fun this season but honestly, over the years I’ve learned that home is really where the heart is – when my family comes to New York for Christmas as they have the past few years we may stay in a hotel (my apartment can’t handle all that family) but we have a seriously fun time – it really doesn’t matter where we are as long as we’re together.
