I hope you guys all had a great week! Now, you know that I’m a super huge Boston Red Sox fan, but this weekend, I am channeling all of my team spirit into the Dallas Cowboys game on Saturday night. They need to win. If not, I’m fairly certain the men in my house will cry. #notjoking
Today, it’s PART THREE of our trip recap to Park City PLUS, I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle to share my favorite “traveling to vacation” outfit!
So fun, right?
Right before Christmas, they reached out and asked me if I would like to talk about what I wear for flights and/or long car rides, and I was like UM, YES! After all of these years of traveling, I pretty much have a “uniform” for flights. This was easy peasy to pull together because I had everything I needed already in my closet and ready to go for when we departed for Park City…
…here we are at the airport ready to go!
This was my outfit for the day…
I love to wear my black Paige jeans on flights for so many reasons. One, they’re incredibly comfortable. A few weeks ago, I mentioned on here that I don’t wear leggings because I haven’t found any that are as comfy as my black Paige jeans. Mine are several years old, and I still reach for them over and over again. I also love that they’re black because I’M TRAVELING WITH FOUR KIDS. There’s no way I get off any flight with less than three things spilled on me.
I bought this cozy sweater (that has a nice length to it) back before Christmas and swoon every time I put it on. It’s soft, it’s warm, it’s not too bulky for under a coat and it comes in so many fun colors. I always carry a scarf with me on a flight (because it can also be used as a blanket for either myself or one of the kids and it covers up spills on my shirt. Ha!), and I love this one because even though it’s a little heavier, it’s not bulky! It’s hard to work with bulky scarves sometimes, but this one is just right. You’ll see there that I also travel with my Ugg booties for a couple of reasons. One, they’re just really comfortable to wear! And two, you never know when you’re going to have to remove your shoes. For instance, even though I have my TSA pre-check, sometimes, they still can ask you to remove your shoes or (call me crazy), but sometimes, if I get hot on a plane and think I might get sick (you know me and my weak stomach), being able to remove my shoes for a minute helps cool me down and makes me feel better. (Is that weird?)
One more thing. Whenever I’m flying, I almost always wear…
…stud earrings. I find it hard to put headphones on/earbuds in when I’m wearing any other type of earring, so I wear studs on flights. My mother-in-law and I found these Kate Spade studs on Christmas Eve and each bought some! I loved them so much that I bought the clear ones and the green ones (they come in a gazillion colors), look…
…aren’t they pretty! These studs are light too!
So, that’s my uniform for flights.
I haven’t recapped the last day of our trip yet, but I pretty much wore the same uniform home too…
…see the cute buttons on the side 🙂 .
Don’t forget, you can see…
If you’re heading off somewhere warm this winter (lucky you!), Nordstrom also has a lot of warm destination vacation finds that you might need for your trip like…
…just scroll and click to see!
Did you see this in there…
…my favorite maxi dress that I wear ALL.THE.TIME.WHEN.I.FLY is on sale right now and comes in so many colors! This pic here is two years old. I’m telling you, I wear this dress on repeat when it’s warm outside and I need to travel! It’s black too 🙂 .
With free shipping, free returns, free alterations and the new curbside pick up (you can order online and then your stuff is delivered to your car!!), Nordstrom makes vacation shopping SO EASY!
PART THREE kicks off with…
…Madeley eating breakfast 🙂 .
Please note ALL THE GEAR we are drying out back there. #whew
This day was January 1st, so we decided to hit the town and then head on over to Midway, Utah. First stop…
…outside where it was COLD!
Four degrees cold!
Love these people 🙂 .
We spent quite a bit of time in their super cute book store in town.
For lunch, we ate at 501 on Main Street. Their food was SO GOOD!!! I had the chili (I think it was bison chili) and three out of four kiddos has grilled cheese with tomato soup. Everyone was super happy about this lunch spot!
This girl is sunshine 🙂 .
After lunch, they asked if they could build a snowman…
…I sang “Do You Want to Build A Snowman” in my head the entire time.
It was cold, but they were determined.
They were so proud 🙂 .
Earlier in the fall, we made reservations with Rocky Mountain Outfitters for a sleigh ride and to see the Ice Castles. It was kind of a bummer because a few days before, they had to unexpectedly close down the ice castles for the week, so we missed out on that part. I hear it’s really fun, so if you can, try and make reservations for that. However, we showed up in time for our sleigh ride…
…cold and happy!
This place was so pretty!!
The only problem was that our sleigh ride turned into a carriage ride because in Midway, they didn’t have enough snow on the ground…
I thought these horses were so pretty 🙂 .
All aboard the carriage ride!!
Madeley decided to nap instead.
Our kiddos had the best time doing this…but if Andrew and I had to do it over again, we would make some adjustments. First, we would really try and make sure we could do the sleigh instead of the carriage (per friends, the sleigh is more fun and a more unique experience), and we would have done it at night. We picked an afternoon time because we thought “well, what would you see at night?”, but honestly, we didn’t see anything during the day. We went up to this parking lot, turned around and came back (it was supposed to have been a 45 minute ride, but it only lasted 30). When we asked about the night rides, they said it’s much colder (so pay attention to that), but the beauty of it is that you get to see the stars. Ahhhhh…that would have been special.
When we arrived back in Park City, we enjoyed a yummy dinner at Crystal Park Cantina! I had the shrimp tacos and they were divine. My favorite part though? Their nachos that we shared as an appetizer!
Chips, please! Hahahaha!
Warm food and a cold night!
After dinner, we showered up and then played dominoes. Anyone else out there play 42? It’s our family’s favorite domino game!
That wraps up my first week in blog world for 2019!
I hope you all have the BEST weekend!!! xo
