Modest Outfits for a Snowy Winter Vacation
I like to pack light. Really light.
My family and I recently vacationed at a lakeside cabin on a snowy mountaintop. I rolled up just a few garments and stowed them into a chic quilted gold duffle.
Modest Winter Outfits: How to Pack Light
Two dresses. Two dusters. Two headcoverings. Many modest winter vacation outfits!
Here's how you can adopt this system.
Oatmeal duster + taupe dress + reversible beret
I love that the dress has mid-bicep length sleeves, so I can feel comfortable taking off the sweater when it gets too warm by the fire.
I've worn it so many times that it's started to pill. I brought my trusty pill shaver on the trip (when else would I have time for this?). Now the dress looks brand new again.
Swap taupe dress to navy dress
Navy dress: similar here
For the next look, just flip the reversible beret to the other side, and swap the taupe dress to a navy one.
The dress is a lightweight jersey knit t-shirt style. You can find a similar one here.

Duster: Amazon Essentials
For the third look, I've swapped the oatmeal duster for a solid navy one. It's made of a cotton-modal blend, has two patch pockets, and hits my 5'4" frame at the knee.
I appreciate that it comes in sizes XS-6X, and over a dozen colors.
Swap beret to blue pre-tied
Pre-tied scarf: The Scarf Bar
For this next ensemble, I've swapped the reversible beret for a beloved dusty blue pre-tied scarf from The Scarf Bar. It has a velvet band stitched underneath the front edge to keep it in place all day.
A pre-tied scarf is perfect for my vacation brain, because no scarf-tying skills or mental effort is required.

The Minimal Travel Makeup
I wanted look somewhat awake while lounging on the balcony and blasting down snowy hills. So I brought along just enough makeup for a pared-down version of my everyday look.
I'm a powder kind of gal, even in the winter. I packed a full size Laura Mercier setting powder, but will consider picking up the travel size for next time. I also forgot that I have this e.l.f. retractable mini kabuki brush.
I adore this mini magnetic shadow compact from MAC. I put in the lighter shade for lids and brows, and the darker as eyeliner.
Then you're ready to hit the slopes... or the Adirondack chair.
