Holiday Travel

Lemon Stripes in Tuckernuck

Annndddd we’re back… Thanksgiving weekend came and went in a flash, making it now officially the holiday season. My weekend was so wonderful, a great time of unwinding, eating, and spending time with family. The highlights included a Thanksgiving dinner mannequin challenge (which included my 90 year old great aunt), and seeing my brother Jackson perform as Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol. He was so cute on stage, it made me cry everytime he was in a scene!

This week it’s back to business as usual, plus I’m planning to finish the last of my holiday gift shopping and address our holiday cards, although it’s always hard to get your head back in the game after an extra long weekend.

With all of the road trips we inevitably end up taking around this time of year, I’ve figured out my own secret sauce for dressing for the car. I always start off freezing, then get hot, then get cold again, so multiple layers are a must. I start wiht a long-sleeved tee like the red one I’m wearing here (under $20 with the sales this week). I add a cozy sweater for weight and warmth. I love this one because it’s sturdy yet super soft with a little bit of stretch. It’s also 20% off today with code GIVE20.

A scarf or poncho is always a must as a last step because I like to drape it over my legs in the car, and then throw it over my shoulders for gas and rest stops. Loving this double-sided plaid one that comes out to under $60 with the same sale mentioned above! Side bar, the monogrammed travel bag I’m holding is also a part of the sale, and is a great gift for any jet-setter. Yes, it has a shoulder strap too.

Scroll all the way down for a list of my favorite Cyber Monday sales. Happy Monday!

    Hi Julia, pleased to hear you had a super lovely thanksgiving weekend! For you in the US, it’s gotta be the busiest time of the year between all the lead up to thanksgiving, the black Friday craziness followed by the festive season…I’m already struggling with the planning of Christmas and all the presents to buy for everyone I don’t think I could cope with anymore;) I love your monogrammed bag, I think presents that can be personalised are really the way forward, it shows a lot of thoughts and make people feel special. Will look into it for my my mum. I hope you are keeping on top of things! have a good week. Julie x
