what i’m packing for the holidays

I’ve already shared my tips on packing like a pro for your holiday travels, but what about the items I’m actually packing? I leave for the east coast for 3 weeks straight, so I’ve got to make my clothes count. My uniform of late has been all about layers, which is totally perfect for traveling for extended periods. Just thing of all the possibilities!

The base is always my favorite pair of distressed jeans, either in blue denim or black. Then I layer on a breezy tunic (like this one from Free People) and a chunky knit sweater for warmth. I also like to switch up my tunic choices. On warmer nights or when there’s more of an ‘occasion,’ a good tunic can double as a dress over opaque black tights.
