Pack like a pro: going home for Thanksgiving
A weekender carryall will hold all your long weekend essentials, whether you're traveling by air or land. 
BUY IT
There's no need to lug your entire shoe collection home for the holidays. Stick with a versatile, slightly elevated boot that will go with any casual or more formal outfit. 
BUY IT
Again, the same rule applies to your jacket. Multiple pieces of outerwear can take up entirely too much room when packing, so stick with a chic and sleek topper that will see you through all your various holiday activities. 
BUY IT
Trust us -- if you've got just one cozy, chunky, neutral-hued knit with you the whole weekend, it's all you'll really want to wear anyway. 
BUY IT
If your Thanksgiving situation is a little more formal, we suggest a t-shirt style dress that's easy to pack. The shimmery metallic fabric takes the whole look up a notch, and can easily pair with boots or heels. 
BUY IT
We understand the need to accessorize, but try to pack lightly. A pair of statement earrings will jazz up any outfit without weighing down your suitcase. 
BUY IT
Going home for the holidays, for many of us, means having multiple family members in the house. We suggest packing a cute, non-bulky robe to wear on mornings when you feel that walking around in your ripped flannel PJs from high school isn't appropriate. 
BUY IT
We swear we're not crazy when we say you really only need to bring one pair of denim along with you. Moto jeans in a darker wash are perfect, because they go with literally anything, and have just enough interesting detail to distract others from your lack of accessories and no-frills boots. 
BUY IT
No plastic baggies for us! Get yourself a cute travel kit to store your beauty essentials in, and we promise rationing everything into 3-ounce bottles will be so much more fun.

Heading home for Thanksgiving this year?

If so, we understand how challenging it can be to pack for a long weekend -- especially when that weekend involves seeing friends, family (or both) who you haven't seen in awhile.

We know you want to leave a good impression (and subtly let everyone know how chic you are), but overpacking is a drag.

From the perfect pair of denim to your essential boot and sweater, we've got everything you need to bring back home with you for Thanksgiving -- and trust, it all fits in one weekender!
