Fall Getaway Packing Guide
There’s a lot to appreciate about fall: Crisp temps, changing landscapes, apple picking. So much about the season is best enjoyed outside, which is why autumn is the ideal time to take a road trip. Wherever you reside, chances are even that venturing an hour’s drive from home will put you in prime territory to take in the scenery and enjoy a nightcap b&b style. But first things first: before you get there, you’ll need a few essential take-alongs for the trip. Here are the 7 essentials to arrive (and stay) in style.
Cozy cashmere and cool weather go hand in hand. Depending on where you live, you might not yet need a coat, but a light sweater like Nili Lotan’s Leyton Rib-Knit Cashmerewill be your go-to all season. Wear it with a pair of boyfriend jeans to explore the changing leaves in a relaxed casual way.
For chilly days and even chillier nights, a scarf is your best-kept accessory and the easiest item to pack. Alexander McQueen’s Skull Print Modal & Silk Scarfin graphic black and ivory gives any outfit instant cool-girl vibes.
Don’t rely on the hotel room haircare. Take your favorite Cuvée healthy hair arsenal-to-go via the Carry-On 4-Piece Traveler set, which makes caring for your strands away from home a cinch. The TSA-approved set stocks you with two packets of shampoo and two packettes of conditioner to slip into your purse so you can maintain gorgeous, healthy hair anywhere.
The quickest way to make a hotel room feel like home is with a candle to set the mood. Goop Edition 03 Incense Candlehas the kind of warm, woodsy goodness that brings the outside in—and immediately gets rid of any mustiness that an authentic b&b can bring. It goes without saying: Just make sure you blow it out before leaving the room.
Instead of toting individual eyeshadow pots, streamline your makeup with a palette. Jouer Rose Gold Matte & Shimmer Palettehas 12 gorgeous shades to play with in matte and shimmery formulas that can take your look from day to night in a blink.
Once the cool weather hits, your skin has a tendency to lose its luster. Give it a radiant boost with an-easy-to pack stick foundation like Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Stick Foundation SPF 17.
It helps even out your complexion and contains silk and pearl elements to perk up your face and impart a water-like dewy texture that lends an immediate glow.
Obviously, you need something to carry it all. A versatile tote like Everlane Twill Weekenderis roomy enough to bring options and fits in any overhead compartment, should your getaway involve planes or trains. Handy fact: It’s also waterproof.
