The malls have officially started playing Christmas music, Winter Dream Tea is back at Coffee Bean, and Target looks like the inside of Santa’s workshop… which can only mean one thing!! The holidays are upon us and we couldn’t be happier. It MAY even drop out of the 80’s this week in So Cal which is promising as well What we also know is that many of you are prepping for your holiday travels, and we thought that it would be a fitting time to share this year’s Life:Styled list of winter travel essentials with you, our lovely readers. As always, we are sharing our favorite products that will help keep you healthy, gorgeous, and warm on the go. Enjoy and safe travels!!
Everyone knows that as the air starts to get colder, the chances of catching a cold or the flu heightens. This is especially not fun to deal with while you’re traveling by plane. In order to help you fight off those nasty germs, we suggest bringing these antibacterial towelettes from Herban Essentials. We absolutely love these wipes, because not only do they kills germs, but they smell and feel amazing on your skin due to the essential oils that they are made with. Our personal faves are the Eucalyptus oil towelettes.
Skin has a rough time keeping hydrated around this time of year due to the dryness that the cold air brings. In order to keep our skin glowing we love using this moisturizing oil from Josie Maran. We know how scary the thought of rubbing oil on your face can be, but we promise, this oil is perfect! Use it on its own or add a drop into your daily moisturizer.
If you are looking for the perfect piece to keep you comfortable on a chilly plane, we’ve got you covered! This gorgeous cape is so comfy, soft, versatile, and great for layering! We love it over a long sleeved shirt or dress. However you wear it, this Cuyana Cape is sure to keep you warm and cozy. Choose from their three great neutral colors: black, grey, or camel.
If you are bound for the North and/or East parts of the country, what is better than a down jacket that offers you the warmth you need to face the inclement weather?! If you are trying to stay warm AND stylish (and who isn’t!), we love this quilted jacket by Lauren Ralph Lauren. It also offers a vented back hem so your body doesn’t feel suffocated.
If you’re just in need of a light coat for those locales that have mild winter seasons (thank you, Southern California), we recommend this Calvin Klein Double Breasted Trench Coat. It has a detachable hood and zip-out flannel lining, which makes it perfect for multiple seasons, or longer trips where weather can change. We love this jacket in khaki because it is so versatile and can be dressed up or down, which is of course handy while traveling.
Tory Burch’s “Teresa” Riding Boots are classic and just flat out gorgeous! They keep your feet comfortable while on the move, but like the jacket above, are versatile enough to hit the the town in as well. Huge plus…these boots are ON SALE on the Tory Burch website right now!!
It’s always nice to have a pair of slippers handy during travel. Let’s be honest, most hotel slippers aren’t all that glorious. These Michael Kors moccasin slippers are perfect for those times that you are not quite ready to leave the house/hotel… Can you picture yourself now, cozied up to a fire in Jackson Hole with the snow falling outside and a cocktail in hand? We can. They will keep your feet feeling SO cozy that there is no need to leave the house!
Scarves are one of the all-time greatest winter accessories, don’t you agree? They not only keep you warm and cozy, but they come in so many different colors, patterns, textures, and sizes that they truly go with everything, in any occasion. On a plane, out to dinner, around town, and anywhere and everywhere in between. We think that this ASOS scarf is perfect with its darling plaid print and large size. This scarf is sure to be a staple in your winter essentials, like it is ours.
Don’t be the guy sitting on the floor of the airport in a corner just to reach the closest plugs, and then take them all up because after all, how can you pick between what to charge first, laptop or iPhone? Ok fine, we have been there too, but luckily, we now have this handy roll-up travel charger from Restoration Hardware. It allows you to charge up to 4 devices at once with its USB sockets, all while using just one wall outlet. This has definitely come in handy for us and we think that you will love it while you are out and about.
We just flat out love this Messenger bag from Clare V. to use as the perfect travel purse. In fact we love everything from Clare Vivier, but that is maybe a slight problem for another long conversation. This bag is one of our faves, made from the softest leather EVER, that comes in so many great colors and it fits a lot more than it looks like. The long strap is perfect for slinging across body, leaving hands and arms free for everything else you are trying to schlep. And to make it even better, these bags can be monogrammed with lovely lettering that is a Clare V. signature and icing on the cake!
We had a great time putting this list together for you and hope that you find it helpful. Still need to book your holiday travel? Call or email Life:Styled today to get the ball rolling stat!
