What To Wear On Travel Days

January 17, 2023


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and Shopstyle Collective for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, worn, and loved by yours truly.

There is no denying that I’ve had my fair share of travel recently — between back and forth from Indiana to Florida, Internationally to the Bahamas and Guatemala, while there’s been a lot of hustle and bustle, the one consistent remains: I’m typically traveling from one climate to another. I don’t know about you, but I find it to be a wee bit challenging to put together outfits that need to be appropriate in -2 and 70 degrees within a few hour flight 😉 Because I’ve had to do it a time or two [or twelve] in recent months, I thought I’d share the best cold-to-warm [and vice versa] travel day looks I’ve turned to.

Before we jump in, there is one more consistent fact when it comes to my travels: the majority of my outfits all hail from…you guessed it, Nordstrom. You know I’m a huge fan of theirs [they first sucked me in with their free shipping and then kept me around with their incredible customer service]. Not only that, but they have a huge selection of vacation options so if you’re planning or about to embark on your next getaway, they have you covered from head to toe!

Comfort Over All Else

Hazel Cardigan • Free People [true to size, wearing in small] // Muscle Tank • Caslon [size down one, wearing in XS] // Live In High Waist Leggings • Zella [true to size] // Arahi 6 Running Shoe • Hoka One [size up .5] // Luka Duffle Bag • CalPak // Calpak Carry On Luggage

If it’s a travel day, you can most likely find me in leggings and sneakers. When I spotted this Free People Cardigan I knew I had to add it to my wardrobe as it’s an easy piece to layer when I’m cold [you know those airplanes have a way of freezing you out of your seat] and it’s just as easy to ditch when you land in the tropics.

Wearing Key Outfit Staples

Denim Trucker Jacket • Silver Jeans Co. [true to size, wearing in small] // Everyday V-Neck T-Shirt • Nordstrom [size up if in between, wearing in medium] // Performance Joggers • vuori [true to size, wearing in small] // Free Metcon 4 Training Shoe [true to size] // Hola Beaches Straw Tote • btb Los Angeles

99% of the time I travel you can find me in a denim jacket. Why? Because it is one of the heavier items I take on vacation and if I wear it on the plane, I don’t have to pack it and can sneak a few more cute tops for my trip 😉 Another travel hack: use your beach bag as your personal item on the plane. Don’t forget the snacks — sour gummy worms to be specific.

If You’re A Jeans Girl

Long Line Cardigan – Halogen [true to size, wearing in small] // Everyday V-Neck T-Shirt • Nordstrom [size up if in between, wearing in medium] // Catherine Boyfriend Distressed Mid Rise Relaxed Jeans • KUT from the Kloth [size down one, wearing in 2] // Cally Faux Shearling Lined Mule • Steve Madden [true to size]

Let’s pretend you’re boarding a flight and as soon as you land have plans to hit up the cute local bar with girlfriends or have a business meeting to get to immediately [I’ll take the first option please] – this look might be for you. A classic pair of relaxed jeans [super tight jeans on a plane, no thank you] and a pair of mules that will keep your feet warm when needed and can easily slip off to get your toes in the sand stat.

Traveling Back To Cold Weather

Hybrid Puffer Jacket • Zella [true to size, wearing in small] // Everyday V-Neck T-Shirt • Nordstrom [size up if in between, wearing in medium] // One Dri-FIT Leggings • Nike [true to size] // Free Metcon 4 Training Shoe [true to size]

Dun dun dun…you’ve reached the end of your vacay and it’s time to go back to freezing land [I feel your pain], now would be an appropriate time to whip out the lightweight jacket you packed [which is also great for cooler morning or evening walks when you’re in your tropical oasis]. Add in a pair of warmer leggings [these are a great option!] ps. Can we talk about these sneakers? I’d travel anywhere for an excuse to wear these beauties.
