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!

Spice Up Your Life: 9 Pieces to Color Your World for Fall

Thanksgiving is coming, and we all know what that means- family, friends and lots of amazing food! Cornbread stuffing with sage, candied sweet potatoes topped with brown sugar that becomes a beautiful caramel sauce in the oven, fresh cranberry and orange compote, roasted Brussels sprouts and green bean casserole, and of course, the rich deep orange of a silky pumpkin pie-- all go perfectly with that gorgeous turkey, golden brown and fresh from the oven. Just thinking about it makes me hungry, even during "pumpkin spice everything" season!   

The palette of our Thanksgiving table, thankfully, also translates fabulously to fall fashion, reminding us of cozy moments with friends and family, surrounding us in warmth and comfort just as they do. Beautiful sage greens, rich cinnamon reds, turmeric yellows, nutmeg browns, caramels, orange in all its rich and warm varieties, all play a huge part in this fall's "spice trail" trend. As do lush fabrics like plush velvets and warm suede. Add in the fabulous variety of patterns, a great hobo bag and a shawl... and voila! You're ready to take on late fall!

This week for Well Rounded Wednesday I am excited to bring you a palette to entice your palate!  These rich, spicy hues will be as complementary to your fall wardrobe as gravy is to mashed potatoes.

I hope you savor these as much as I do for their beauty, style, and best of all, their comfort!

10 Perfect 10s (When You Ain’t No Size 2)

In honor of Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW), and for the inaugural Well Rounded Wednesday on the Zappos Blog, I hereby publicly admit that I have a massive girl crush on Meghan Trainor.

Only 20 years old at the time of this writing, Ms. Trainor has been writing songs since she was 11, produced her first tracks at 13, at 18 was signed a songwriting deal, writing for Rascall Flats and an assortment of Disney stars.  By now, most of us have heard her amazing body-love anthem “All About That Bass”- and celebrated that amazing line “Cause every inch of you is perfect, from the bottom to the top.” Body acceptance and love are amazing things that we all struggle with some days- especially when we face the dreaded dressing room mirror.  Trainor says, "I wrote this song because I myself struggle with this concept of self-acceptance. It was written from a real place so I’m glad that other people can relate to it.”

Some days it can be a challenge to find clothing that compliments your body while being on-trend and in-style when you have hips, curves- and maybe a few extra inches from your bottom to your top.  So, for the inaugural Well Rounded Wednesday, I bring you 10 items that are Perfect 10’s when it comes to being on-trend and in style this season- even when you’re not a size 2.  

I hope you love these as much as I do, and they help you show on the outside how fabulous you feel-and are on the inside!

Inspired By: Pastel Shell

When we think of fall transition, we typically shift to richer, deeper colors. While that’s true, we can’t help but be gravitated towards the refreshing trend of fall outerwear done in soft, dusty pastel hues. It just lightens up our standard fall palette so nicely and with minimal effort.

There’s just something a bit unexpected yet approachable about throwing on a pale coat over your fall outfits. Today’s street style inspiration does just that with a subdued blush-colored trench over her dark outfit.

Check out our version of this fresh take on early fall outerwear:
