Pretty Pinks :: Wrap coat & Travel essentials

by wendy

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Pinks and burgundies in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Three layers on top and two on the bottom (thick wool high socks are a must!), I wore this outfit on the warmest day when we were there and it was enough to keep me warm and comfortable.

Traveling to Iceland, I knew I had to pack essential winter pieces to help me combat the cold.  I’ll go in-depth on how to stay comfortably warm in the next blog post, but for now… sharing a few of my go-to favorite travel essentials.

For cozy pieces, I packed a few sweaters – Joseph high neck sweater, ASOS cable sweater, and J.O.A. cold shoulder sweater.  And whatever outfit it was, I always wore my Splendid top underneath for extra warmth.  I also knew all-weather/snow boots were essential on this trip, not to mention in NYC as well.  To be honest with you, stylish all-weather boots were hard to come by, but I found a few that were chic and lined – Sorel waterproof boots, Rag & Bone shearling-lined boots, and Christian Louboutin studded boots.

 Onto skincare… I forgot to pack my moisturizer and foundation, and panicked when I realize I left those two behind.  Throughout the trip, I doubled up on my Biossance rose oil and used my Chanel concealer as foundation.  We also went to the Blue Lagoon and the salt water completely destroyed my hair.  I ended up soaking my hair with my Biossance body oil and laying off on any heat tools for a few days.
