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.

Cube

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

The Fremont Troll

SONY DSC

One of my favorite websites (and apps) is RoadsideAmerica.com.  I love visiting odd and unusual roadside attractions and the website has tons of them!

I’ve visited the Freemont Troll before but it’s always fun to see.  Have you ever been?  Do you have any pics?  What things do you like to see when you visit a city?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

The Gum Wall in Seattle

This might be gross for some but I think it is awesome.

All these pieces of gum represent folks that have put a piece of gum in their mouth, chewed it for a bit and then stuck it on this wall.

Okay.  Maybe it is a little gross.  But we did it too.

A Visit To 1912 Pike Place

I’ve visited Seattle several times but this time I was making a point to visit 1912 Pike Place.

SONY DSC

Without googling, do you know what this place is?  Can you guess?  I mean if you know me and know what I drink most mornings….was that a big enough hint?

SONY DSC

Yes.  I made a trip to my hot chocolate motherland.  Now I know Starbucks didn’t invent my hot chocolate but it is oh so good there!!

There was a bit of a line to get in but it moved quickly enough.  I got up to the counter and was able to order my venti hot chocolate. 🙂

I don’t know the girl in the background but I am sure that she enjoyed the whole Starbucks experience too!  haha!!  Have you ever visited the original store?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
