6 Fall Fashion Must-Haves for Travel Collage



Travel Fashion

Hi friends!  Hope everyone is enjoying these first few days of Fall.  I’ll be honest….in Texas, it’s still pretty warm…until like Thanksgiving.  Sigh.  Moving on…..I’ve seen an uptick in questions from readers about to travel to New England this Fall to enjoy the spectacular colors in the changing leaves, and I thought I’d provide y’all with my Travel Fashion advice.  Specifically, information about  6 Fall Fashion Must-Haves for Travel I own, that ALWAYS make it into my suitcase when I’m headed to New England in the Fall.  All are available on Amazon.

Fall Travel Outfits

I’m a pretty practical person when it comes to travel fashion.  Of course I want to look cute….but I want to be comfortable too.  And I am a minimal packer, because I ALWAYS seem to find several treasures I want to drag home with me, as you know from this post.  Gotta leave some room!


Ponchos and Hats

So, Fall Travel Outfits that can take me from morning to late night is important.  I own a poncho very similar to the poncho pictured above, and I love it!  I can dress it down with jeans, and it looks adorable, and I can dress it up at night, by adding a fun vintage pin at the shoulder and a more tailored pant.  Another option is  this poncho which comes in four color combos!  If you love cashmere, this poncho is yummy, it’s made in Italy, which you know I love, and comes in 16 colors!  Pop on a floppy hat, and you are Boho Chic for sure!  I have a hat from Rag and Bone that I love, and the hat pictured above is very similar!


Warm and Comfortable Shoes

There’s nothing more important than comfortable foot ware, and I am a BIG fan of Clarks, like the flats shown above.  Great support, and cute as well!  And the Ugg Boots shown above I have in two colors….brown and black.  I LIVE in them in the winter, and always take a pair to New England, where apple orchards, like these I highlighted in this post, can be damp and soggy, and pop-up rain showers are not uncommon!


A Tote Bag

Practical me also encourages travelers to leave their expensive designer bags at home, and opt for something a little more travel friendly.  During the day, I always carry a tote that zips closed, almost identical to the tote pictured above. I like to be able to carry an umbrella, my big sunglasses, and small treasures I might pick up all in one bag, and being able to zip my tote shut is just plain smart traveling.  At night, I ditch the tote for a smaller cross body, and I love the Kate Spade cross bodies, like the one pictured above.  It comes in several colors, and is large enough to fit my giant phone, and other items, while keeping my hands free for hailing cabs, swiping subway passes….whatever!
