I have taken many Fall trips in my life and the above packing list is what I have dwindled down after practicing over and over again. Of course this always depends on what your plans are, but if you’re going on a standard weekend to week-long trip, this is really all you need to start with. If you’re going on a long trip, you might want to throw in one more tee and one more sweater, but that’s it.
I like having two pairs of shoes on trips, especially if I’m going to be walking. That way, if my feet get sore in my sneakers, I can wear my other shoes the next day. These lace up flats from El-Naturalista are the most versatile shoes I own. I can wear them to work with dresses or pants, and on the weekends with jeans. I can wear them with tall socks or no-show socks. They rock! I highly recommend all of El Naturalista’s shoes and I own two pairs so far.
I recently added a trench or rain coat to the fall packing list because it’s really miserable to be out traveling without the appropriate rain gear. I made that mistake in Dijon and I had to wait hours before my clothes dried.
Remember these tips:
- Always check the weather
- Make sure everything goes with everything else
- don’t try to make up outfits or wear things that you wouldn’t wear in “real” life
