Can you say, “Sprinkles of twinkles everywhere” or “Artful sparkles in the air”? Well, ‘tis the season for all the bright and beautiful light displays. Many of us have fun family traditions during the holiday season and travel to amazing places to celebrate lighting festivities. Check out Parker’s blog in our ‘Rack of Style’ section this week for great holiday destination ideas!

With so many options for travel, we must not forget to dress for all of the merrymaking. We may be out in the cool element for a while, so we’ll need to bundle up. I always find layering is good practice, don’t you? I say, better to be prepared and remove a layer if necessary than to be cold with no immediate ‘warming station’ around. Brrrrrrrrr…

Are you like me in that you feel as long as your head, hands, and feet are covered well, you can endure any climate [ha, ha, ha]? Being from up north, we did lots of walking. As we traveled on foot during many cold and snowy days, it was a must – layer and cover up all that we could. Often times, I’d get a good laugh as I watched passersby; I’d only see their eyes, everything else on the person was hooded, wrapped, gloved, layered and booted.

Even though, this traditional way to dress for the season is virtually inescapable, we CAN do it in style, right ladies? National makes it really easy for you to look your brrrrrr….y best! I’ll get you started with some of my favs for the festivities:

Silky nylon outside, so clothes glide on. Brushed cotton inside for natural comfort.
