This outfit looks so perfectly cozy but still stylish, doesn’t it? I’m such a baby about cold that I’d probably have to add tights, but other than that I’d definitely wear it.

Last night we got a little sprinkling of snow, which, if you live anywhere that gets real winter, will seem like nothing. In Portland this is a big deal, since it snows (and sticks) maybe once a year. Last year I think the snow skipped us entirely. Anyway, I’m trying to say that there’s a reason I can’t take my hands out of my pockets: It’s freezing! I will be the first to admit that I’m a big baby when it comes to cold. Those people who wear shorts year-round are insane as far as I’m concerned. So while there was a brief moment this morning when I considered putting on a more fashion-forward outfit, the cold won out in the end.
I’ve been meaning to sew myself some luggage tags for a long time now, and what finally motivated me was putting together my DIY gift guide for travelers. I guess I’ll have to go back and add these luggage tags to the guide, because I think they’d make great little stocking stuffers.
These gifts are for that jet-setter who is always traveling somewhere fabulous. No matter how awesome your destination is, travel can really wear you down, and the little comforts can make a big difference. And organizational tools like lingerie bags and jewelry rolls make it way easier to jam-pack your suitcase and still be able to find everything later. Here are some DIY ideas for gifts to whip up for the traveler’s next voyage.
