What I Wear To Travel | Travel Fashion

Comfort is key.  I of course take into consideration other variables such as the time of year I’m traveling and the length of my flight but my main focus is comfort.  No one wants to be squirming or feel uncomfortable, particularly if it is a long flight.

It’s fall (FINALLY) here in Texas so today I chose leggings because, well, leggings.  I paired it with a plum colored long-sleeved tunic top and some simple black flats.

If you stalk me on Instagram then you will know that this pose is my classic OOTD pose.

I tried to get a better “view” of what I was wearing but the airport bathroom had not so great lighting.


And lastly, you can’t see this in either pic but this top is not in a petite size and I had to roll up the sleeves just a bit and then they still felt too long.  Also, the type of material was a serious static magnet.  How do you get rid of static?  It caused my hair to get staticky (is that even a word?) and I ended up just putting my hair up in a bun.

Bottom line though it was a very comfortable outfit and one I will definitely be wearing again, particularly when I travel.

Eagle Creek Pack-It System Starter Set

We loved the Eagle Creek Pack-It System Starter Set so much…we bought another one!


Eagle Creek Pack-It System Starter Set

The starter set comes with a garment folder (M), a half cube and a cube.

The half cube is great for smaller things like underwear, socks, bras etc.


Half Cube

The full cube is awesome for things like t-shirts, night clothes, swimwear etc.



With all the cubes you can either roll or fold the clothes and you can compress them when you zip it up.  They really help you maximize space.

The garment folder or envelope, is probably my favorite thing!  It comes with a plastic board that guides you on how to fold the clothes and then you are able to compress the items very neatly for packing.


Garment Folder | M

We were able to pack 12 shirts in one folder and they only needed a light pressing when we got to our destination.

The system helps us not only keep our clothing organized and compact, it also helps with other items too.  We use a smaller cube, the quarter cube, for our essential electronics accessories like our phone chargers, camera battery chargers etc.

The cubes come in a variety of colors and while the packing cubes are a little expensive, they really are worth the investment.  They’ll help make your traveling life easier by saving you space in your luggage and keeping your items organized.

Hope this helps y’all as you plan your next adventure!  We’ll be posting a video soon on how we use our packing cubes.

Stay awesome!! ~lisa

Capsule Wardrobe Lookbook | Oct 9-15



I love the colors in this top.  The colors feel like they could cross over into my fall capsule wardrobe but the material is a very thin, chiffon type fabric so I am thinking I’ll put this one up for the fall/winter.  I could change my mind.



This outfit just screams glamour, don’t you think?  It’s my State Fair of Texas Livestock Committee Volunteer shirt and I paired it with my favorite Liz Claiborne jeans.  The orange vest?  Well that’s a one of a kind specialty item that I unfortunately didn’t get to keep.  It’s got some pizazz though…for dayyyyyysssss.



This outfit brought out a random fashion rule that I didn’t realize I had.  See those super cute leopard print shoes (Payless if you are wondering)?  Well they have that kind of light brownish color in them so I just feel like I should accessorize with gold jewelry.  But the shoes have silver pony beads and that threw me off.  Obviously I went for the gold but it made me realize that I had a rule about wearing leopard and gold…who knew.



I totally feel like a munchkin when I wear this maxi skirt but I also love it and won’t stop wearing it.



I paired this black knit vest with my teal top and I like the look.  Just trying to mix things up and keep them interesting as I transition to my fall pieces.



WooHoo it’s Friday!  I volunteered again and so I’m wearing that awesome volunteer shirt but seriously….I need to clean my TOMS.

Hope y’all had a great week!  Link your blog in the comments so I can see what you wore!

Stay awesome! ~lisa

New sunnies!

I went to the eye doctor and because my prescription didn’t really change and I technically didn’t need new glasses, I decided to get a pair of prescription sunglasses instead.


These aren’t my actual new sunglasses.  Those should be in any day but these are the ones that you try on to figure out which ones to get.

I usually just do without.  My vision isn’t really that bad but I can see better with glasses so these will be awesome.

Do you wear glasses?  Or contacts?  What do you think about prescription sunglasses?

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa

Party dress option….

Well I probably shouldn’t say option since I already bought the dress and pretty much decided to wear it.  But humor me and keep reading because I have a question for you.


It’s a 25th company anniversary party.  For us, the attire is dressy business.  Do y’all think this is dressy business or too dressy?   I figure because it’s a party, with a band and everything, this will work fine.  But I didn’t want to be overdressed, ya know?

I’ll be waiting to hear your thoughts.

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

Hey y’all….

and welcome to Hot Chocolate Chat.


That’s basically what I say when I start my daily chat videos…haha!   When I saw this cup in Hobby Lobby that is what I thought of.  If I drank my hot chocolate out of a regular cup I would so buy this.  Or really it makes me think, hey…I can make that.  But I probably never will so yeah, instead of thinking about that you should check out my YouTube Channel.  Seriously – here’s the link and everything {{ CLICK HERE }}.  :)

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
