Thanksgiving Packing list

For those of you traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday, whether by car or by air, figuring out what to pack can be a real hassle! I find it really does work to follow the one (or two) color palette rule so you can mix and match everything for maximum versatility.  Personally I find packing for colder climates easier, as I can grab one or two sweater, maybe a poncho and mix them with various shirts and either jeans or leggings. Bringing a good pair of boots (rain or snow boots, depending on where you are traveling) is always a good idea, as well as a pair of flats. If you're like me, I always go shopping on Black Friday (and will DEFINITELY be posting about that soon!) so I like to wear something easy to take on and off for trying on clothes. I also opt for layers and a cardigan rather than a bulky coat on those days, it's easier to carry it or tie it around your waist or sling over your purse. On that same note, if you are flying, a good rule of thumb is to wear your largest pieces on your day of travels (boots, heavy sweaters and scarves). This not only saves room for more goodies in your suitcase but also keeps you warm on a chilly plane.  I'm actually travelling twice in the next couple weeks - once for business and another for pleasure, so I'll be sure to share any new travel tips I pick up. Be sure to check out tomorrow's FRIDAY FIVE post about my favorite travel accessories!
