With summer officially over, the holidays are approaching quickly. Christmas is only two months away people!! With the holidays, comes a lot of travel. Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year always bring families closer together, even if it means hopping on a plane to make it happen.
If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that we are no strangers to travel. In order to leave the island, we need to get on a plane for at least a few hours. And with Ree just coming back from visiting Holland and England and Bre currently planning her December Colorado trip, we thought it would be fun to share our favorite travel fashion ensembles for the holidays.
The key is comfort and warmth in neutral colors, with a pop of red. While the seasons don’t change in Barbados, landing in Toronto in the middle of December can be quite a shock! A fitted, knit sweater keeps me warm, and a large pashmina easily doubles as a blanket if the plane is too cold.

Flats are easiest when traveling, but boots with a large chunky heel are quite easy to walk in and look stylish too. Win-win!
A large, cross-body bag adds a great pop of color to the outfit, and it holds everything needed to make a long flight more comfortable.
I love traveling during the colder months, because it means the temperatures inside the airplane (i.e. cranked up AC) and outside are almost the same. LOL! So I don’t have to carry a bunch of extra layers with me for the plane (like in the summer) that are then peeled off as soon as we land. All I need to be travel chic is my favorite oversized sweater, a pair of leggings, and a few accessories. Done, done, and done! Comfy, warm, and stylish.

Cold weather means it’s boot weather. And I jump at every single opportunity to wear boots! Paired with skinny jeans or leggings, they are perfect for travel. With a long side zipper, I can easily get them on and off for security, and I’ve freed up space in my luggage for other things, like more shoes!
Gwyneth is old enough now to carry most of her much-needed airplane items in her very own kiddie backpack, which means…I get to carry whatever handbag I want! This is a major milestone for me and I’m taking full advantage, because you never know when another kid might pop into the picture;) Well, my favorite of course is my Sofia Coppola LV. The color is gorgeous and it holds tons of stuff. iPad, iPhone, snack, scarf, wallet, you know, all the essentials.
