So you're embarking on a short trip in chilly temperatures... Here's what you'll need to pack:
- Winter boots
- Thermal undergarments
- Cashmere gloves
- Warm pjs
- 3 scarves
- Solid long sleeve Henley T-shirt
- 3 solid cardigans
- Black skinny jeans
- 2 printed shirts
- 3 pairs of warm socks
- Coordinating jewelry
The outfit you'll wear on the plane can be a thick pair of leggings, your long sleeve Henley and one of the cardigans you planned to bring. You can also wear your winter coat, a warm scarf and your bulky winter boots which will leave room in your carry-on to bring home some treasures from your trip.
Try to focus on soft fabrics and cashmere and select your wardrobe color scheme based on the winter boots you choose. For this trip I chose a black leather jacket and black boots to pair with a variety of neutrals like grey, beige and black. Spice up your solid basic items with a few of your favorite scarves!
This particular trip was to Michigan for Christmas so the items not pictured are my Christmas pajamas, sweaters for my dog Maverick and the zipped half of my carry-on is chalk full of presents...leaving extra room to brings my gifts back with me!
