Traveling made easy: Creating a travel wardrobe

Shopping for your travel wardrobe with my affiliate links will give me a small commission. 

We love to travel… a lot. Any chance we get, we’ll hit the road. Since I’m the one that packs up three out of four of us, I pretty much have this down to a science. I know exactly how much will fit in each bag and still have a good idea of how much room is left for those extras we pick up along the way. One thing I have done over the years is create a travel wardrobe for myself so it’s one less thing that I need to worry about.

You hear how Steve Jobs always wore the same thing every day, so he never had to think of something so mundane? Well, that’s how I tackle travel. I know exactly what I’m going to wear every time I head out the door to my next destination. I think I might have picked this up from my flight attendant days. We always had to be dressed and prepared to sit in First Class. I always kept that one outfit in my bag for those just in case moments.

Travel Wardrobe

Here’s my quick and easy travel wardrobe:

Soft crew new neck fitted t-shirt. You can actually get a 6-pack on Amazon.
Brushed denim jeans in a dark wash by PAIGE denim are my favorite!
Black poncho
Teiks (folded in my tote bag)
Socks
Adidas Tennis shoes
Oversized black handbag
Passport Organizer

This is just what I’m wearing. What’s in my handbag is a whole other story. But you can see my travel wardrobe is very basic, casual, and classic. I can dress it up or down and still be very comfortable. I’m also not going to be too hot or cold and I don’t have anything that would take up a lot of space. The great thing about my travel outfit is that it’s not expensive. So when I need to replace an item, I know it’s not going to cost a small fortune. Which means, more money for my trips!

Experiencing a spiritual awakening… Or two.

peace

Last spring I was taking my daughter to a birthday party. We were meeting in a parking lot to be taken on a military base where the party was going to be. At some point, a man approached me. I have never seen this man before nor had I ever been in this location. He was friendly, I wasn’t really paying that close attention until he said… “Does your daughter know she was named after your grandmother?” Mic. Drop. continued

Kindness matters: How we are spreading kindness

When we were kicking off the new year for Girl Scouts, I wanted to find a way to get the girls to open up to each other and figure out a way to offer kind thoughts to one another. One of our Greater Ink shirts is Kindness is Contagious and I knew it would be a fun project, spreading kindness with kindness rocks.

Omano Junior Scope: Perfect for your Girl Scout troop!

Microscope for kids

Earlier this year our Girl Scouts earned their WOW Journey badges while learning all about water. Now the girls had an opportunity to earn their Brownie “Think Like a Citizen Scientist” Award Badge. Our friends at BSM Media and Omano sent us a Junior Scope microscope for kids. With the help of this microscope, we were able to take water samples and analyze what is in our drinking water, fresh water, and an area pond. How fun was it to see live organisms in our water samples! continued

Advent Grab Bag: A new twist on a cult classic

Toy Grab Bag

Last year I realized very quickly that our traditional advent calendar was not going to work with three kids in the house for two weeks. When I saw these Advent Grab Bags from Maggie Mason and the Secret Cake Society, I knew this was going to be a huge hit for everyone in the house. And I’m not just talking about the kids. The bag is the perfect twist on a traditional advent calendar. continued

Easy Chicken and Rice Soup: For when your family has the plague

It finally happened. The week before Thanksgiving our house gets hit by the plague. Or cold season, depending on how you look at it. Anytime my children have to take sick days from school, it feels more like the plague than a cold. Last night I made an easy chicken and rice soup, just in time for the plague cold season.

Oprah’s Favorite Things: My personal favorites

First off, Oprah has a lot of favorite things. Each year I eagerly await Oprah’s Favorite Things list because I am certain I will like almost all the things. Can I afford all the things? Not even close, this is why I take Oprah’s list with a grain of salt. However, we all trust Oprah, right? Certainly, if she says I need a pizza oven, I must need a pizza oven.

Rally the troops, get your new Team Jaime shirts!

In February of 2014, I sat next to my friend Jaime at a conference. We laughed and got caught up with each other’s lives. It was just a month later that Jaime told us she had breast cancer. Jaime is the brightest light. She fought cancer several times now and here she is again. This time is a bit different. This time, the fight is harder. And we need to rally again, even bigger than before.
