Fall outfit ideas: Weekend getaway

How to Pack Your Carry On Bag Like a Pro

There's something about the changing of seasons that makes you want to plan a getaway, right? As I'm writing this, there are about a hundred little mini-destinations rolling through my head. (Michigan wine country? Milwaukee? Nashville? Hmmm...) Naturally, the best part about planning a vacation is deciding what to pack! I've rounded up my favorite fall vacation-inspired essentials above, but let's talk about some of the stand-outs in detail, shall we?

Mules have been attempting to make their way into the mainstream for a couple years now, and I think they've finally arrived. I love the easy of the slip-on, slip-off, which makes them especially perfect for travel. (Be it for airport security or bare feet on the dashboard!) They come in flats and heel varieties, but naturally, I gravitate toward comfort.

Denim Dresses:
It's no secret that I love a good chambray top–but chambray dresses make getting dressed even easier! I love this boho version with tassels (it's on sale for $80!) but they're pretty unbeatable in all varieties, and they're idea for that summer-to-fall transition period.

Fall Hats:
To replace the straw wide-brim beach hats of summer, there are felt, suede, and wool alternatives for fall! They add a lot of personality to any outfit, keep you warm, and are equally as adorable as their summery sisters.

Did you really think I wasn't going to sneak some sort of scarf in here? I wear my bandana non-stop year-round, but it's really most perfect for fall. Red is the classic go-to, but I love the more coral-y hues of this one!

Plum Lip Color:
My latest beauty obsession is plum lip balm! Plum hues are very big for fall, and I love how it's dramatic, yet such a fun switch-up from my usual red!
