It should come as no surprise that the holiday weekend travel wardrobe featured today is based on buffalo check plaid, as I have already done two posts this week (here and here) featuring this pattern! Even though we are enjoying a break from the bleak and cold weather of last week, now that winter has arrived a warm and weather-resistant wardrobe is a necessity, especially if you are traveling to a colder location for the holidays.
Let's start with the apparel to wear while in transit (keep in mind that the flannel shirt worn as an outer layer can also be worn on its own, or under the packed sweater):
|Clockwise from top left: Woolrich Women's Buffalo Check Flannel Shirt in Red/Black Plaid; Turtle Fur Double-Layer Bang Band in Black; Orvis Barbour Cavalry Polarquilt Jacket in Red; L.L. Bean Women's Wind Challenger Fleece Gloves in Black/Carbon; Madewell Women's Buffalo Check Trouser Socks in Scarborough Red; L.L. Bean Women's Bethel Waterproof Boots in Black; L.L. Bean Women's Relaxed Fit Double L Jeans in Black; L.L. Bean Women's Braided Leather Belt in Black; L.L. Bean Women's Long-Sleeve Crewneck Pima Cotton Tee in Fiery Red.|
And here are the items to be packed:
|Clockwise from top left: Mango Violeta Alpaca Wool-Blend Sweater in Medium Red; eBay Madewell Red & Black Buffalo Check Vest; L.L. Bean Women's Long-Sleeve Crewneck Pima Cotton Tee in White; Charming Charlie Buffalo Plaid Scarf in Red; SmartWool Women's Cable II Socks in Black; L.L. Bean Women's Comfort Mocs in Black; Coldwater Creek Pinwale Stretch Corduroys in Black; L.L. Bean Women's Long-Sleeve Crewneck Pima Cotton Tee in Black.|
While I really love that Madewell vest, I could only find one in a size medium available on eBay. However, there is a nice buffalo check vest currently on sale from Woolrich that would work as well. And as a nod to our recently proclaimed National Mammal which lent its name (however erroneously in the taxonomic sense!) to this classic plaid, I had to include the silver buffalo cuff bracelet as part of this travel wardrobe.
This is a collection of casual apparel that will keep you warm and comfortable even in the coldest of holiday destinations!
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, everyone!
