Travel look

Jeans, TeeFlats, Cardi, Tote, Scarf

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?

    I usually do a dress with leggings underneath, then take the leggings off once I arrive! KristinaKristina does the Internets

    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.

    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 wear….to add to the difficulty I will be traveling with my toddler! Thanks for the post!

    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!

    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!XOJessy Check out my Coach Poppy giveaway going on now!

    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!

    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 🙂

    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

    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!

    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).
