Home For The Holidays Packing Guide

Whether you’re going home for winter break or visiting family for the holiday season, our packing guide will have you prepared!

LAY EVERYTHING OUT

Before you start packing things into your suitcase, lay them on your bed so you can see what you have set out. This will help you remember things you may be forgetting and can help with chronic over-packing.

Here’s what we’ve packed: Slipper | Lace Keyhole Triangle Bralette | Real Soft® Flannel Sleep Pant | Cable Sweater Jogger | Boucle Turtleneck Sweater | AEO Sateen X Hi-Rise Jegging | AEO Sweater All Weather Boot | Hand Knit Beanie | Hi-Rise Play Legging | Cable Pullover Sweater | Fuzzy Scarf | Aerie Sparkle Crew Socks | Swedish Hasbeens Husband Clog | Lace Longline Bralette | Shine Cheeky + Lace | Boyshort | Cheeky + Shine Waistband

BEGIN WITH THE BASICS

Don’t spend so much time planning your outfits that you forget the basics. Start with your some cute undies, a versatile bralette, warm socks, and your PJs. These are the things you’ll most likely spend the most time in.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

It’s always helpful to check the weather for  your destination. Remember to bring warm clothes and cold weather accessories when needed. Packing the proper shoes is important. Always have an extra pair of weather-friendly shoes.

CHECK IT TWICE

Once you have everything laid out, check your haul twice. After you have everything set to go, pack it up in your suitcase. Keep a carry-on or backpack out for last minute additions.

RELAX!

All the work is done, now snuggle up for some snowflakes and chill. Bring your backpack with you for long trips, making laptops, books, magazines, and snacks easily accessible on the plane or in the car.
