Layers Abroad

Packing to travel abroad is challenging, especially when you’re prepping for below freezing temperatures. Well it used to be tricky, then Le Tote came around. I loved that I could customize my tote with the perfect layers, without having to do last minute shopping for clothing I would only wear once.

Luckily I discovered these moto detailed DKNYC leggings on My ultimate travel companion and in-flight OOTD had been totally upgraded. Now, my “flight pjs” could now be worn to dinner, hiking, or shopping around town. Obsessed.

Plus I knew I’d have to wear a longsleeve garment under every sweater for warmth but still wanted to add a dose of style, this piece worked perfectly!

Apart from the go-to travel essentials like headphones, my tote was filled with face wipes, eye masks, water and lotion for the plane. A girl’s gotta travel with all the necessities! I also loved that this tote worked as my day to day bag – I could store purchased items or layers, like my scarf, when it was too hot to wear inside at a cafe.

Going to Germany with my tote made traveling such a breeze. Plus not having to do laundry when I got back? Truly the most amazing thing, ever. Check out more travel photos below or take a peek at  for more!
