My Autumn Travel Essentials reflect the changing of the seasons, with marvelous earth tones, creams, and neutrals, packable layers, and plenty of options for mixing and matching pieces that all work well together. When I pack for autumn, I pack lightly, and in the same color family, so I can create a capsule wardrobe perfect for the transition to cooler weather. Here are some of my favorite fall travels pieces.

When it comes to luggage, I absolutely love vintage looking Steamline Luggage, because not only are they sturdy, they’re unique and beautiful, so it stands out when I’m looking for my bag. I place one or two luggage tags with my contact information on my bags, on the off chance my bags are misplaced, and I have a similar passport cover to keep try travel documents organized and safe. I use a duffle bag stored empty in my suitcase upon departure to fill with souvenirs, new clothing, and other trinkets I pick up along the way, so I can check my carry-on on the way back, and use the duffle as my new cabin bag.
I love to pack versatile, easy to wear pieces so I can transition from situation to situation easily, whether I’m popping into a café after site seeing, walking through gardens in the rain, or walking all day while exploring somewhere new, I like to pack with a certain color palette depending upon my destination or the season, or both, so that I can easily mix and match pieces with little effort. In the fall, I generally wear browns, caramel colors, tobacco leather, and creams, because these pieces can all be easily rearranged to make numerous different outfits, which means I can pack less and get more out of my capsule wardrobe.
These Commando leather leggings look sleek and sophisticated, but feel like wearing cotton yoga pants. They pair perfectly with an embroidered blouse, a Mer-Sea travel wrap or a Barbour rain jacket, and can be easily dressed up or down. I love these APL tennis shoes for walking all day long, and I love wearing these short Hunter Boots for rainy days. Pro tip: wear your heaviest shoes on the plane, and put lighter shoes in your luggage when packing!
Adjusting my Detroit-made Shinola watch to the local time is something I do before my plane even takes off, and I of course never leave home without at least two cameras. This handbag is perfect for a night out in a new city, and this monogrammable AirPods case coordinates with my looks and keeps my headphones accessible. I keep all of my cables organized with this tech roll-up, this curling iron has detachable heads, so instead of packing different hair irons, I can simply bring the size attachments I want, which saves weight and space in my bags.
