Travel look


Picking a travel outfit is not hard but when you're traveling from 35 degrees weather to 85-90 degrees, what does one wear?  Personally, I don't want to arrive at my destination in boots and a heavy coat. So I figured a light top, nice thick cardigan, flats, scarf and I should be good. 
Once there, take cardi off, cuff the jeans and I won't cook alive. 

I planned to wear something similar to the look above. Will see what I'll actually end up wearing. 

What would wear if you traveled from a cold to a warm destination or vice-verse? 



  1. I usually do a dress with leggings underneath, then take the leggings off once I arrive!

  2. For my trip to New York I am pretty much planning to wear leggings with knee high boots and then a light shirt under a sweater so that it doesn't get too hot with a coat on.

  3. I was hoping that someone would do a post on traveling! I will be flying from Anchorage, AK to Atlanta, GA in a couple of weeks (way different temperatures!) and I had no idea what I would add to the difficulty I will be traveling with my toddler! Thanks for the post!

  4. i'm jealous that you're heading somewhere that's 85-90 degrees!
    good tips for my trip in Jan from BOS -> FLA :)

  5. That's just about what I wear everytime I travel. Sometimes I'll go all "celebrity-esque" and sport some heels (because let's face it, you're sitting most of the time anyway) but since I've flown with a baby...flats are a must!

  6. The perfect outfit for such a destination!

  7. Lilly, I just traveled from Cincinnati to Tampa for the Thanksgiving holiday and wore an almost identical outfit. Flats with the baby were a must and having a tee on under the cardi made it easy to transition once we were in the warmer weather. I think it is a nearly perfect way to go. I really like the suggestion about a dress (or skirt) with tights and then being able to peel the tights off and lose a jacket once hit the warmer climate. That would be a more fun idea. Either way enjoy the trip!

  8. This is a great travel outfit, hope you have a great time on your trip!

  9. Going from Minnesota (school) to Florida (home), and I'm planning on wearing a light long-sleeve with a light sweater, leggings (possibly jeans, not sure yet) and flats! then I just take the sweater off and I'm good to go!

  10. Love the outfit you put together - the grey and blue pieces won't get dirty - and the scarf is a gorgeous pop of brightness! Also love the Longchamp bag. Hope you have an amazing holiday and can't wait to see some pics :-)

  12. I really like this look. I'm traveling to Jamaica in January and I was wondering what I could wear that could be easily converted into a temperature appropriate outfit...I had even contemplated a cute skirt, tights and flats - removing the tights once I got there. :)

    Enjoy your trip! Thanks for the post.


  13. this is perfect! i travel a lot for work and always do layers, comfortable shoes and a roomy purse! im doing a post about this tomorrow!


  14. That outfit looks perfect for travel!! I love the cardigan, so cute!

  15. I think these pieces are perfect. I would choose a t and cardi combo if I were traveling to a warmer destination too. I hope you have a wonferful & relaxing get away. I look forward to seeing your trip pics:-)

  16. Love all of your looks Lily. You are an inspiration to all of us who are stylistically challenged. :) Kepp it up.

  17. Cute outfit. I like to wear lots of layers when I travel, especially if I'm going from some place colder to warmer.


  18. Great travel outfit you posted today.

    If you get a chance let me know what you think of mine.



  19. That's pretty much my mission in a week, going from Norway (where I live) to San Diego (home for Christmas). Flats and not boots are a must. -Heidi

  20. loving every piece! nothing better than a blanket cardigan!

    This is almost my exact travel outfit, even without a weather change, you never know how hot or cold the plane will be. I usually opt for jeggings or stretchy jeans with a longer top & sweater to stay comfy!

  23. Flats are your best friend when travelling.

  24. Adorable. Love casual and comfy travel looks that still look acceptable!


  25. this is perfect travelling with kids too.

  26. Lovely pick - my style exactly! I only add a few accessories to it: a long bead necklace, a bracelet, a ring and a pair of earrings.

    this is pretty standard for me, as well. skinny jeans (with stretch) or leggings, tshirt or tank top (a longer one if i wear the leggings), cardigan, scarf, flats (or toms, converse, or a short summery boot).
