Holiday Travel

//Express portofino shirt/ Brina Box tassel necklace / Tory Burch reva flats / Express jeggins similar / Vera Bradley weekender // 

Today is week three of the Holiday Link Up with On The Daily Express and More Pieces of Me. This link up has been so fun to participate in! Today we are all showing you our holiday travel outfits and tricks. I have a three hour drive home for the holidays. It's not too far to travel, but it does take some planning. See my top 5 tips for holiday travel below!






1. When trying to pack as light as possible, make sure you pack lots of neutrals.
2. Travel in clothes you'll want to wear again; plain dark denim and Tory flats will get a lot of use on your trip!
3. Bring your makeup necessities, not your whole makeup drawer. Also, most likely wherever you're going will have shampoo, conditioner, etc. for your use. Check before packing up your whole shower!
4. It's true what they say; when you roll your clothes they take up way less space than if you just fold them!
5. Cute luggage is a must! I love pretty much everything Vera Bradley.



I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  2. Very cute! Did you buy your flats full price or find them on sale? I want a pair so badly but can't seem to pull the trigger.

      I actually purchased by TB flats off of eBay! I have two pairs that I have purchased through eBay and they both came brand new, in box, with tags!

  3. Love your look today, Darcy! You look very classic and polished. I'm also digging the hair down & straight- so pretty! I have read the "roll your clothes" tip too and I never seem to get around to trying it. I may have to this holiday season...

  14. I have two hours of driving so kind of close with you, but I agree. I always bring clothes Ill wear multiple times with different things and the one thing I fail to do is pack lightly. I being my entire wardrobe and it is not good. I love your traveling bag, I need to get myself one.

  15. This is SUCH a cute outfit. I never feel comfortable when I fly or travel, but I hate going in just sweats, etc, too. I think this is the perfect blend. Plus, you can't go wrong with Vera Bradley!

  17. You look so cute! I love the outfit, stylish and yet it looks comfortable for travel. I used to be terrible at traveling and then I got one suitcase for a month in London... I became really, really good at packing then. I'm so glad you included the link for the duffel bag as it is adorable!

  19. AWESOME tips for traveling! I'm sadly one of those people that is an extreme over packer. I pack enough outfits for 2 weeks no matter where I go. Josh even hates when I pack his bag because I do the same for him.

  37. Rolling clothes is definitely a great tip.

    I have to pack later this week and I'm already dreading it. It can be so difficult, but I'm excited about this accessories organizer I got from Stella and Dot. Hopefully it helps make it less of a nightmare to UNPACK my jewellery.

    Safe travels!

  42. Darcy I have a friend that can pack like Hermione from HP, and I think is because she rolls everything, I'll have to try it next time.

  46. Nice one. If anyone among you is fond of travelling around the places then you may also include a detailed road map along with your other stuffs. If you are planning to visit the beautiful country of Spain then you may take help from the Spain Road Map to find your way easy in that country.
