Since I officially fly out to Mexico in two days, I thought now would be an appropriate time to post about what I like to wear when I’m traveling.  And that would be leggings.  Whether it’s a roadtrip or a plane ride, if it works with the weather, I will be wearing leggings.  Some of the other things I like to wear on a plane are a chunky cardigan with a lightweight top underneath so I’m ready for whatever temperature the plane or airport are.  This is particularly convenient when traveling to a much warmer climate, because the cardigan can be quickly stashed in my carry on when the plane lands.  I also love scarves for a similar reason — scarves can be used as a blanket or a pillow or as back support if the seat is super uncomfortable.  And, when it’s not serving one of those purposes, it can hang from my body and takes up no extra space!

Depending on how chilly it is where I’m leaving from I’ll either go straight to the sandals I know I’ll be wearing the whole vacation, or I’ll wear cozy flats.  If I wear sandals I tend to throw a pair of socks in my carry on for on the plane to keep my feet warm.  My main requirement for footwear when I’m traveling is comfortable — sometimes running is required to make a connecting flight!

Another thing I like to do when traveling to a warm climate is roll up a pair of shorts in my carry on to switch into either on the plane or once we land.  They don’t take up much room and that way I feel like I’m ready to start my vacation right when I land!

Everything in this post is from Piperlime AND under $100 excluding the jean shorts(great alternative here!).  I love Piperlime for their selection — so many great pieces at all different price points!  I do recommend reading the reviews when purchasing online — there’s a lot of helpful information there!

Necklace: gifted

Where: errand running

Why:  I had been searching for pieces just like this since a Piperlime ad that paired tan and red orange together — I love the pairing!  And amazingly, both pieces are major steals from the after-Christmas sales.  I got this sweater from GAP, on sale with a coupon, for less than $2.  And these pants were the same thing — on sale for $13.50, with a $10 off coupon, $3.50.  Wahoo!

In other news, how cute is this necklace?  I know it’s cheesy given my profession, but I love pretty much any piece of jewelry that involves a camera.  Would you wear jewelry that matches what you do for a living?

Where:  Christmas at my grandparent’s house

Why: My grandparent’s house for Christmas always involves grazing all day — we get there for lunch and stay through to dinner with presents, football and games between the meals, but much of the food is left out all day.  I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable that could expand with me and this sweater is perfect for that — oversized and baggy, and really warm.  While skinny jeans aren’t the most conducive to a day of eating these have a lot of stretch to them and I knew that if need be I could unbutton them(who hasn’t done that from time to time?!) and the loose sweater would keep my secret.  Because we’d be making lots of trips carrying things in and out of the house I wore my flat brown boots — they kept me warm and kept me balanced on the snowy/icy driveway.

Does your family dress up for Christmas celebrations or keep it casual?
