December is here and it’s the most wonderful time of the year! We spent the past week in one of my favorite places, Vail.  The quiet mountain town was the perfect start to the holiday. A little skiing, a little relaxation and a whole lot of time spent cozied up by the fire.

Cardigan (c/o) / White Tee / Frame Black Skinnies / Booties / Necklace

When it comes to packing for the mountains, being comfortable is key number one. I was telling one of my girlfriends a few weeks ago that I only use a carry-on when I travel.  Somehow I fit everything I need into my trusty bag and I only re-wore this chunky sweater when I traveled.

SWEATERS-I packed this cardigan, this cashmere, a grey and cream version of this and this sweater 

JEANS- When I pack, I normally bring three pair of pants. I went this these, these and these.

SHOES- I wore these on the plane because they don’t pack very well (thinking about getting these, instead). Then I packed this pair of over the knee boots, these booties, and a pair of sneakers.

TRAVEL CASES– These trusty travel cases are a life saver.  I can fit all of my skincare and makeup in the two bags. This would make such a cute gift for any gals who love to travel.

JACKETS- I brought two coats, this one and this one.  I have my ski coat in Colorado already, or else this could get a little tricky.

PJS AND LOUNGEWEAR- I always pack this pair and these sweats
