Traveling for Just a few days can be stressful. Packing light to avoid checking your luggage can be hard. Let us show you our favorite items for maximizing your looks and being comfy this Thanksgiving holiday.
If you don't count the Shirahleah Harper Tote, we only packed ten items. Six of which you traveled in, that way you have more room for shoes.
For Travel Day I can think of nothing more comfortable and warm then the Nau Down Blazer. I always try and pack or wear something that doubles as pillow. You can never go wrong with a black pair of leggings and the M.Rena High Waist Tummy Tuck Leggings are great to travel with. They are stretchy but they don't stretch out so you can wear them the next day without saggy knees. Top them off with a Crown Jewel Tank, City lights Raw Oversized Mineral Wash Sweatshirt, Wooden Ships Essential Eternity Scarf and throw on a Roost Hammered Chain Necklace (after going through security of course)!

Picking the right dress can be hard so I usually bring options with me. But when I am forced to bring less I find going with a fun yet classic print in a versatile silhouette never fails. This Karen Zambos Dress is perfect for just that. And since its rayon you can simply roll it up for travel and when you get there sprinkle water on any wrinkles and leave to air dry or run a hair dryer on low over it. Add on your City Lights Motorcycle Jacket, a couple of Raven + Lily Bangle and your accessories from the day before to polish off the look.
After a night of family, friends and food it's nice to curl up with a book or movie and relax. Having your leggings, tank and scarf with you means an quick transition into lounge wear when you get to bed or your hotel.

And finally its Friday! This means sales, shopping and maybe even traveling home. After the whirlwind of the holiday its nice to just slip on a pair of favorite jeans. And Henry & Belle make so many great ones I had hard time picking which. I decided to go with Super Stretch Straight leg. The classic indigo compliments a lot of different pieces in my own wardrobe and makes for a nice template when shopping for cozy sweaters.
And when the day is done and it's time to catch your train or plane you'll be just a comfy as you were in your leggings.
Have fun, travel safe, stay comfy and enjoy the festivities!
