Travel Winter Fashion Essentials

I’m definitely a winter person. In fact, I believe that we can have more wardrobe fun during the cooler months; especially with layering. It’s all about finding the right outfit ideas that will have you looking fashionable yet help you feel warm all season long. The most important thing about learning to layer is getting a very good handle on the must-haves of the season. From the perfect cozy knit to the slouchy leather pants to the oversize coat and more, let’s go through the top 5 essentials of the season. These will take your layered looks to the next level.

1.    The Perfect Knit: While knitwear could seem like less than a fashion trend and more like a wardrobe staple, it’s important to know how to style your knits to ensure you wear them with style. For a modern and minimalist look, you could style your over-sized white knit with wide-leg trousers and heeled ankle boots. For a more colorful look, you could go for a jewel-tone (emerald for example) knit jumper and wear it with your favorite skinny jeans and a huge scarf. You can basically pull it off with everything you’ve got hiding your closets!

2.    The Slouchy Leather Pants: all rules have changed! Forget about the super tight leather pants, this season, it’s all about the comfortable, loose and sporty leather pants. I love styling them with black heels, a simple top/black polo neck, a tailored blazer and minimal jewelry. It’s all about keeping the androgynous orientation.

3.    The Oversized Coat: these coats are on the rise! While they’ve been in trend for a while already, this winter, these jackets looks slightly more fitted. When styling yours, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit fitted, play with proportions and style it with shorts or little skirts, wear heels to lengthen your silhouette and add statement accessories.

4.    The Beanie: definitely the coolest thing you can wear this winter. While it stayed for years the item that children despised wearing at school, it’s now the hit item. It’s just perfect how fashion keeps on turning towards comfortable, “keeping-us-warm” trends.

5.    The Flat Ankle Boots: whatever your style, there will always be a pair you love. They’re a necessity for any winter wardrobe and this season, they’re definitely looking better than ever. Wear them to work or dress up your weekend looks, they’re just so stylish and versatile.

    First of all, I want to say that I really love your blog so far. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but I’ve never known how. I am afraid of taking risks, but you are so generous in your tips and guidance that I’ve finally taken up the courage to seriously put my foot in the business world. My biggest struggle is fear that I won’t have good content and I won’t be successful. But I’ll overcome it. I have a real passion for helping people and I think that will really drive me to do my best. I’m really shy, but I can open up with kind and genuine people. Thank you for being just that.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m always afraid, everyday when I post, travel, take photos. It is completely normal and I think it’s a good thing because that encourages our passion drive to go further and further! Best of luck and thank you for reading! x

  • Legend says that there is an intangible string of fate that binds two souls destined to be together... Whether as best friends, lovers or two crossing paths.
Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
And so, no matter how near or far you are from the person, the thread remains. 
There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from the person, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you two together. 
If you feel that with a lover, friend, or someone you just met... take a minute to remember what you just read and always be kind to one another. 💫
  • She turns 7 and my world upside down and inside out. 
I gave her a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take her years to learn that not everyone loves like she does... and still... she will love. 💫
  • Are you at work or at the beach? 
I’m sitting on my laptop behind my desk at work... but all I want to do is be on the beach 🏖
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💫
  • It’s been so good to be back to my second home in Dubai and back into routine work life. I know I’m very lucky to be always on the go, traveling and exploring but I crave routines sometimes. It keeps me grounded, a little balanced and back into my yoga practice. So I always try to have a balance of both worlds... even if it’s for a few days until I start craving the adventure again. 
A little bit of the @theitalianwayuae mood in my home this morning.
  • Maybe if I close my eyes strong enough and click my heels three times I could go back! Would that work?? Happy Sunday 😊
  • The Elephant is a symbol of strength, loyalty and power. In other cultures it also symbolizes fortune, protection and honor. 
There are 3 types of elephants: The African bush elephant, African Forest Elephant and the Asian Elephant. Which one do you think this beautiful elephant is from? 
Please don’t ride elephants and don’t support any organization that allows you to ride them 💕
  • If you are a person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. 
Know that you have the ability to calm storms in people... know that you give people hope and feel like they have a purpose but, also remind yourself that your heart needs rest...
I just felt like sharing this today...💫
Thank you Bianca 💕
  • I’m craving the sun ☀️ who would you go with? Tag them
  • I’m not going to lie, 2019 is looking pretty damn big!!
That’s the only way I can think of expressing at the moment! 
A lot of changes happening in my professional career and it’s frightening in an extremely exciting way. Does that make any sense! 
Most of all, I’m so proud of what has become of @travelwithtjd and the beautiful team behind it, in which we are slowly building to help make it grow. 
In about month, I go back to Tromso to sail the arctic wilderness once again for the 3rd time, but this time, weather conditions will be even stronger than ever and all this will be covered in white snow!
2019 is opening more doors for conquering the polar regions and new windows for the southern regions. Hope I meet some of you on one of our @travelwithtjd trips!
  • Back in my element. From snowboarding to diving. I’m so in love with both but ready for the beach and warm weather for a little break.
Which do you prefer?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past couple days with mixed emotions... it’s a good reminder on how I need to always fight for what I believe in. 
Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
