How many of you when leaving to travel throw on some yoga pants, plop your hair up on top of your head, and hit the road? It’s only the airport or a few gas stations, right? You’re never going to see these people again!

Tsk tsk. I’ve been guilty a time or two of this: The Curse of the Travel Slob. Yes, I’ve been there and done that. I’m totally not bashing wearing sweats; trust me- the minute I get home from work or school I immediately whip off my bra and jump in the baggiest pair of sweats I own. I’m all about being comfy and cozy!

But friends, there is a difference between being cozy-cute and being a slob. When you travel, keep in mind that you are representing where you are from to other people you meet.

Life is too short to be anything but fabulous.

Are you traveling over the holidays? If so, make sure you are traveling in style!

I’ll show you how I’m #TravelingInStyle this upcoming January for my next trip!

I recently partnered with the Vera Bradley travel line, and I COULD NOT be more excited about this opportunity! Seriously, this line pairs together my two favorite things: travel and fashion! I’m completely OBSESSED with this Alpine Floral large duffel bag. It is made of lightweight quilted cotton, so it’s soft to the touch and totally cute at the same time!

Trevor and I will be driving down to Florida in a few weeks for a warm getaway with another couple, and I’m totally pumped to be traveling in style with this gorgeous bag. The colors are so bright and fun; they match my playful and energetic personality!

I’ve never had anything but black luggage before, so this is really a change-up for me! I’m feeling a bit guilty that for all I have traveled before, it took me this long to look cute while doing so!

If you are doing some holiday traveling and want to vamp up your travel style, I encourage you to check out these cute Vera Bradley travel essentials. Vera Bradley WILL become your new BFF! I am just in SO much love with Vera Bradley because they are SO unique, creating iconic designs and versatile styles that offer women a colorful way to accessorize. I can express myself with the variety of colors all while being comfortable at the same time!

Thanks to Vera Bradley, this cute duffel bag is my new favorite travel essential! While traveling, what can you absolutely not live without?! What is your travel style? Leave me a comment below!
