What’s In My Bag For Our Colorado Getaway

EEK! We’re so excited to be heading to Colorado for Christmas! The girls are always asking to see snow during the Winter time, and that rarely happens here in Texas, so we’re off to Colorado to see some snow! I thought it would be fun to share with you what I’m packing for this trip. I know I’m always scouring Pinterest to make sure I haven’t forgotten any must-haves for our vacays so. Hopefully, this will be helpful to you if you have a snowy vacay coming up!


OK. First up is Winter boots!

I know you’ve seen the trend floating around with the super cute and furry boots everyone is wearing! I actually quite like this trend because the boots are super cute and practical too. Most are made to be extremely warm and waterproof! There are a ton of options out there, but I’m obsessed with Sorel! I’ve bought a few pairs of sorrels over the years and still wear all of them! This year I snagged these super cute wedge Sorels, and I can’t wait to wear them! Matt also has a pair of Sorel boots that I love! His are the Cheyanne II Lace Boots. For the girls, we went with these Tommy Hilfiger Rian Lace Ups! They are so cute and under $60 at Macy’s right now with code GIFT! I’m also linking a few more affordable pairs that I think are super cute!

  1. This pair from PAWZ is Under $50!
  2. This pair from JBU is similar to the Sorel boot and under $100!

Next up is warm coats and pullovers!

If you read my post on The Coat Brand I LOVE then you’ll know that my coat is from J.CREW! I have the Short Hooded Puffer Jacket in Black and am obsessed! And! It’s on major sale right now at 60% off making it only $39! Just use code: HOWGIFTY! I’m also a big fan of Patagonia! A little on the pricey side like Sorel, but they are seriously so warm and made to last! I have this super cute half zip pullover to take on our trip! We’re also big fans of Columbia and all have lighter weight, fleece, zip ups and pullovers for layering!

Next up is base layers!

It’s gonna be cold in Colorado so layering is key! I’m a huge fan of cute thermals and henleys under all that snow gear! I have a couple of these Classic Henleys from Splendid and love them! I also love these from Lucky Brand! So cute, under $25, and come in 5 colors! I’m also packing all the cozy leggings to wear under those snow pants! Y’all know I’m a Spanx fan so I’m bringing my fave Faux Fur leggings! These will be great under my snow gear and I can also throw them on with cozy sweaters and cute for Apres ski! :))

Alright! Last but not least are accessories!

I’m an accessory girl through and through so you can bet I have my cute winter hats, sunnies, scarves, and purses packed! I love this cute slouchy beanie by UGG! It’s a great neutral color and goes with everything! I’m also bringing this felt mountain hat that I’m obsessed with!! Also in my bag are my Quay Aviators (always!), this adorable scarf,  these super cute gloves, and these cute boot socks that I snagged from Walmart for under $5 per pair!

OK Loves! That’s it for today! This will be my last blog post for the year as I’ll be hanging with my little family and enjoying the Holidays! If you have some downtime and would like to see some of our travels, you can always hop on over to my stories to get in on the action! Other than that, I’ll be back atcha in 2019 with so many fun and exciting things to share! Until then, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a fab New Year!
