Reversible Poncho / BR White Shirt / BR Jeans / Tennis Shoes / Suitcase / Tote

Charcoal Ribbed Sweater Dress / Reversible Poncho / Black Boots / Tote

Wow!  What a fun, whirlwind weekend we had in NYC celebrating my youngest daughter for her 10th birthday.  It’s the perfect time to share these new pieces that are perfect travel styles from Banana Republic, especially with holiday travel around the corner!

This luxurious double-faced poncho is my new travel companion.  It is perfect for the plane as well as cozy wrap on a chilly day.  I’ll have it in my car as our temperatures go up and down this next week, too!

I love this black/charcoal combination for all the black I’m typically wearing in winter.  This Ivory/Oatmeal pairing is also beautiful.  I’m really into Winter White/Ivory/Camel for Fall and Winter.  The poncho comes in two other combinations: Black/Teal and Gray/Baby Pink.

This is my typical travel look.  These BR jeans are some of my absolute favorites.  They have the right amount of stretch and keep their shape.  A great top and denim combo make it so easy to just change shoes and keep moving once you arrive!

One of my favorite styles to pack is a sweater dress like this one.  You never have to worry about wrinkles and you can even wear it on the plane and go straight to dinner…and a show!  We saw Frozen on Friday night and it was wonderful!  I love the ability to look great with little effort and this ribbed turtleneck sweater dress will be a staple in my cold-weather wardrobe.  Add your favorite boots and the poncho and you’re ready for any occasion.  I always gravitate to blacks and charcoal but the burgundy color of this dress is fabulous, too.

I’ve gathered my other favorites from Banana Republic below.  They are offering 40% off new styles and 50% off sale through tonight!  Get an early start on your holiday shopping and pick up this poncho as wonderful gift for someone who loves to travel!

PS – This skirt is not a new arrival but it is a must-have!  You’ve seen it here and here.  It is available in all sizes…don’t be afraid that is says Petite.  Check the measurements and order it today!!  I’m wearing it with chunky knits for Fall/Winter.

Thank you to Banana Republic for sponsoring this post.

One of my passions is travel and over the years we’ve been so pretty wonderful places.  Each new year brings the opportunity to have new experiences and plan new for new travel destinations.  I’m excited to share what is on my Travel Bucket List for 2019 and my ideas on what should be on yours, too!

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
