When we think about a getaway, the first things many of us think of are beaches, palm trees, and the blistering summertime sun. However, not every getaway looks the same. With a season as beautiful as fall, now is the time for a change of scenery– hello hikes, warm-colored leaves, cozy sweaters, and pure serenity!

The great part about fall getaways is that they require way less packing than your typical summertime vacation. Forget the snorkeling gear and beach towels: everything you need for a fall getaway can fit into a stylish carry-on, like our Weekender Tote! So, grab these five essentials and get ready for the beautiful, serene getaway you deserve.

1. Comfortable boots

Nothing beats sipping cider in your most comfortable clothes during the fall season. On the “off hours” of your getaway, changing into your most cozy, comfortable sweats only enhances your weekend relaxation.

A go-to on any fall trip, a neutral sweater provides a variety of options in terms of building outfits on your weekend getaway. You can dress it up with a fun necklace, scarf, or a chic belt (like our Square Reversible Belt), or dress it down with your favorite pair of leggings or sweats.

Either way, a neutral sweater gives you multiple outfits in just one piece of clothing: that’s how you pack smart!

4. Jeans
