Weekend Packing List: Fall Getaway

Last weekend was Jay and I’s first anniversary, which is quite difficult to believe! This year completely flew by but has been so wonderful. We had such an amazing time, I shared all of the details on my newsletter this week, and I thought it would be fun to share a Fall Weekend Getaway Packing List for you! 

In the past, I haven’t shared much travel content, here on the blog.  However, I would like to share more travel content in the future with the hopes that we will get to do some more traveling, over the next few years! Jay kept our travel plans a secret, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for me to share a pretty generic Fall Weekend Getaway Packing list for you, and me, to reference. This is also the perfect time for me to showcase some of my favorite new pieces for Fall!

You probably know that all of my outfit posts, generally, revolve around good jeans! There is no denying I’m a denim girl. So this weekend I will be taking my this new pair of high-waisted jeans from Madewell that I am completely obsessed with. I love the button detailing, which separates them from other options this Fall. High-waisted denim is very in right now and I have been a lover of a higher waist for quite a while now. For my body shape, they just feel the best and I think they are more flattering. 

Black denim is also perfect for the Fall and Winter months because it pairs perfectly with deeper, and darker, colors. This pair from J.Brand is my absolute favorite! Not only is this pair black, but it’s also high-waisted and distressed. They are so comfortable too!

Blanket Scarf

This blanket scarf is a new addition to my wardrobe and definitely a favorite. If I had to recommend one thing from this post for you to buy this Fall, it would probably be this plaid blanket scarf. This works great as a scarf, a poncho/cape, or even a blanket! The colors are beautiful and couldn’t be more suitable for Fall. It is a subtle and comfortable way to be fashionable this season. Plus, it’s on sale right now for only $39.50.


I just shared my Fall Boot Guide for this year the other day so I will keep it short on the boots. Depending on your travel destination I would recommend either some cute booties, these riding boots or my absolute favorite rain boots. Rain boots are necessarily only for rainy days. In fact, I wear mine a lot more than just on rainy days. These are by far my favorite rain boots, I have two pairs! Here is how I wear them:

  • rainy days
  • outdoor excursions (apple picking, at the pumpkin patch, hiking, other Fall activities!)
  • yard work
  • even just paired with a cute fall outfit


I pulled my vests out last weekend, just in time for a few chilly mornings this week. I love vests for Fall because they are so up my style alley and also very practical for Fall fashion. J.Crew has a ton of great options as far as vests and I love my Burberry Vest for the cooler months. 


Depending on where you are going, or where you live, the type of jacket you will need to bring will vary. Some of my favorite jackets for fall include my go-to trench coat, an olive colored jacket, and a good blazer. These are all so versatile and can be worn any time of the year. For some reason, jackets just look better during the Fall months!

Sweaters + Shirts

Naturally, I’m a lover of sweaters and t-shirts. To be honest, I have to remind myself not to keep buying more and encourage myself to buy more stylish tops. What can I say? I just love a comfortable look! Lately, I have been on a roll with finding really great t-shirts and sweaters this Fall. Here are my current favorites:


Depending on your plans, you might want to bring a cute cocktail dress for the evening or a cozy sweater dress for the day. I am in love with this dress from Club Monaco. It’s so classic and could easily be dressed up or down, depending on your needs!


I hope that you find this post helpful and even more importantly, I hope you have at least one fun weekend trip planned this Fall! Personally, I need to make travel more of a priority in my life. Travel is about the experience and my soul has been thriving so much from experience and stillness lately. If that makes sense? Small town life is great, but sometimes this girl needs to get out of her shell a bit! I would love to know what trips you have planned and what is on your weekend packing list!

    Do you ever check your Louis suitcase at the airport? Or is it more carry-on size? I have the keepall and I’m so paranoid I’m going to be the last one on the plane, the overhead bins are full, and I’m going to have to check it! I think it that ever happened I’d have to just take the next flight! 🙂

    Hi Courntey!! I absolutely have that same fear!! Mine is carry on size and so far I haven’t had any problems with not fitting in the overhead compartment. I don’t think I oculd ever bring myself to check it, lol. I compeletly understand your fear! To be honest, I didn’t think I would use the rolling bag as often as I have. But, I love it! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
