Come Fly With Me: 9 Packable, Mixable, Match-able Pieces

The day before Thanksgiving is traditionally known as the busiest travel day of the year, filled with insane scheduling and stress as we fly in and out of our favorite places.

One of the biggest challenges of travelling for the holidays, besides implementing a strategy for avoiding all the uncomfortable questions from your family about your love life (or lack thereof), your career (or lack thereof), and avoiding crazy Aunt Agnes, is packing a wardrobe that is appropriate for all the family gatherings, while still having a great outfit to wear out when the crew of friends that you’ve known since childhood decides to meet up for “Catch-Up Cocktails”. 

So, in honor of the upcoming Turkey Day festivities, I bring you a sampling of some amazing, packable items that mix and match perfectly, so you can pack in a carryon and avoid baggage fees.

Many of these styles are from Zappos’ own amazing private label (exclusive) brands. These pieces will all pack fabulously and are ready to wear fresh out of the bag! Pair them with a basic bootie, add a great necklace, and you are ready to rock it out.

I wish you all safe travels and the best of times celebrating with family and friends!

Fall’s Must-Have Scarves and How to Wear Them

One of the easiest (and cost-effective) ways spruce up any wardrobe is with the addition of scarves. Depending on the look you’re going for, there are different scarf types to achieve it. For instance, if you’re going for an effortless grab-and-go option on those cold days, a chunky knit infinity scarf is a great way to go. If you’re just looking to add a pop of color to an office outfit, vibrant square scarf adds a totally chic Jackie O-inspired vibe.

Check out a few of our favorite scarves and some helpful tips on how to wear them!
