Packing 101: Fall Getaways Edition

When it comes to vacations, I tend to slightly overpack (okay, more like extensively overpack). What if I need that extra pair of heels, or what if I want outfit options for day and night? My mom always told me it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it – a girl’s got to have options.

Thankfully, our Rue How-To: Pack for Fall Getaways Boutique is here to relieve my bursting suitcase of an unnecessary outfit or two – or just make more room for me to stash those essential extras. From roll-up flats to the perfect vest and a stylish yet totally functional suitcase, I can pack for my much-anticipated autumn retreat with total confidence.

J.Litvack “Hetty” Leather Ballet Flat
Flexible and live-in comfortable? These flats will take you from the first day of vacation to the last.

W.H. Petronela Python Large Duffle
Perfect for a weekend getaway, this on-trend, genuine python duffle will keep all your valuables safe and sound while on the road.

Rainforest Women’s Black Vest
This lightweight down vest is not only chic, but also adds the perfect dose of extra warmth without the bulk of a winter jacket.

Charles David “Braden” Leather Tall Boots
A good pair of boots is always a good idea. Wear them while traveling to save space in your luggage – they’re the perfect comfort-meets-style item.

Our Rue How-to: Pack for Fall Getaways Boutique opens Saturday, September 8, at 11AM ET.
