my outfit: in the car + a giveaway!

Do you like road trips? I'm not a huge fan... I mean, in theory I like them... but in practice - not so much.  Being in the car all the time makes me so sleepy and groggy.  For Thanksgiving we drove about 2 1/2 hours to the East side of the state to spend the day with my in-laws. I always like seeing family... I just hate getting there.

The other tricky part is what to wear... I want to be festive for the occasion, but comfortable for the car, you know?  I decided on this drapey top from Zara (that I also wore for the gifting photoshoot for the winter & holiday looks:book!) and my fav pair of skinny jeans.

I'm always so cold in the car too so I packed a cozy scarf and socks - I just slipped off my flats and slipped on socks for the ride.  I don't know why I didn't think of that like 10 years ago.  And for some added festive-ness I wore my new shoe clips from ban.do! I'm SO smitten with them - they completely dress up this very old pair of flats that I almost sent to Goodwill (good thing I didn't!)

We like to listen to plenty of This American Life podcasts too (much to the kids dismay). What are your tricks for staying cozy and comfy for long car rides?
