It’s funny because fall is my favourite season for dressing and living, and I have yet to make a long weekend packing list for it. So tonight with What to Pack for a Long Weekend in Fall, I will rectify this unintentional oversight.

You can really feel the fall in the air today, especially this evening. The breeze has that touch of cool, versus the hot breath of satan that is summer.

It has me itching to wear a coat.

Not a winter coat, just a regular coat. I’m not quite ready for winter yet.

The massively popular coat style of the season is the quilted coat, and one that is on top of that list is The Frankie Shop coat. It’s the IT coat and really hard to find.

So good luck if you are looking.

It was just released in black, and white in the UK.

That being said, if the Frankie Shop coat isn’t your thing (it’s really oversized) there are so many to pick right now. I think every company put out their own version this season.

I chose a longer style in black for this week’s packing list because I like something longer to keep my butt covered if I am going to be walking out and about in cooler, breezy weather.

This is a similar coat in a shorter version.

Fall is harder to pack for than summer because you need heavier items and more layers. But, it is also more fun because of the heavier items and more layers.

I find it much easier to dress with personality in the colder months because the layering options are so extensive.

That being said, you don’t need to pack a lot of items. You should be able to pack in a weekender bag if you do it smartly.

What to pack for a long weekend in fall?

  • 3-4 tops
  • 2 sweaters/cardigans
  • 2-3 bottoms (make one joggers)
  • dress (depending on circumstances)
  • coat
  • 2 pairs of footwear (boots, and sneakers)
  • underwear, bra, socks
  • pyjamas/loungwear
  • one smaller bag, and one larger tote bag

The goal is to not bring tons but to bring enough that you have a variety of things to wear for different occasions without having to worry about running out of things to wear because everything is dirty.

The chances of wanting to spend time doing laundry on a 4 day vacation are pretty slim so make sure that you have enough to get you through.

Joggers are good for travel times and/or some good leisurewear if you want to be really comfortable.

Wearing joggers outside the home for non-exercise purposes has become the norm over the last 18 months as we have learned to adjust our previous way of thinking when it comes to loungewear.

Plus they can look super cool if styled well.

The long cardigan has a Chanel-esque vibe and will look really good layered over anything, or even just buttoned up and worn on its own.

Dresses over pants is a thing as well and can look pretty chic if done well.

Side note: I just got those AE flares in the mail today. I haven’t worn flares in a long time so I’m pretty excited to try them out. This time around I won’t let them drag on the ground to suck up all the water.

Stay safe.

  1. I ordered those AE flares when you mentioned them on Instagram. I’m going to try them out today as well. I love the look of flares with a healed boot to keep those gems out of puddles!!! However, I haven’t worn a heeled boot in ages. I will also have to probably cut mine to wear with flats.

  2. I got the regular length and they don’t drag for me (I’m 5’3” and a smidge). They fit really well and I like the look of them. I think I’ll wear them tomorrow 🙂
