It’s that time of year where the layers start to come out when outfit planning and I am grabbing for my heavier coats while out and about. Each year I look for a coat that will be a wardrobe staple. One that can easily be dressed up or down and worn a million different ways. I tend to gravitate towards the military style and happened to fall in love with this one from Banana Republic (also available in navy and the entire site is currently 40% off). They have such a great selection of winter coats that are perfect for everyday where are great for travel. I actually packed this coat when Matt and I headed to Maine not too long ago as I saw the temps were much cooler than the city. It worked perfect during the day as I was cozy in a bunch of layers and at night to toss on over a dress with a pair of booties for dinner and drinks out on the town.
Lately I have been finding so many great pieces on Banana Republic’s site that are perfect for travel (and they offer free shipping on any order $50 or more). I always look for items that can be worn more than one way (i.e. a sweater that works with a skirt, pair of denim and also tossed on over a dress) to try and reduce my habit of over packing! Anyone else guilty of this?! I always think it is a great idea until I am lugging my bag around regretting every decision.
Would love to hear what your holiday/winter travel plans are! Do you prefer to stay local, go visit family or escape the cold and head somewhere warm? What is your favorite item to pack when heading out of town? Let me know if the comments below and I hope you all have a great rest of your week!
A big thanks to Banana Republic for partnering on this post!
