PACKING FOR NOVEMBER TRAVEL

Packing for travel in the late fall and winter months can be challenging. You have to be ready for chilly temperatures, rain- maybe even snow and perhaps unseasonably warm temperatures. Well-chosen layers, good shoes and a great waterproof coat are essential. I love to travel off season- fewer tourists, shorter lines, reduced prices and a more relaxed atmosphere.

  • For this trip I am taking a pair of waterproof boots, tennis shoes and a pair wedge sneakers that can work for day or evening.

  • This was a big splurge for me. Patagonia’s 3 in one parka. The shell is waterproof, breathable and windproof; the inside puffer is down. There is a detachable hood and it is easy to separate the layers. What impressed me most is that the coat is flattering, above the knee length and doesn’t make me look like a “Michelin man”. It’s pretty light and can roll up. I’m hoping not to use all of the layers together, but I’m glad that I’m ready.
  • I’m taking four pairs of pants: blue jeans, charcoal jeans, my favorite black jersey pull-ons and a pair of Athleta Stellar Trouser. I love this pant because it can be worn to ride bikes, airplane travel and day-wear. They don’t look like Yoga pants.
  • One gray cardigan, a cream cashmere blend pullover and a sparkly green sweater for evening.
  • Three cotton layering t-shirts, one cotton blouse and a velour charcoal and green top that can be layered or worn by itself. I like to always have on three layers for comfort.

  • Two A’nue Ligne sleeveless turtlenecks- adds warmth and finish, but not bulk.

  • One base layer top, olive vest, two scarves: one cashmere and one print.

  • Quilted tote and a cross-body bag.

The trip is a little bit off in the future and I may eliminate the blue jeans and a top or two depending on the forecast. Once I first select the clothes it becomes easy to edit and cull. I am also taking a larger suitcase, not carry-on. A larger bag is doable when staying in one city.

Where are you going this fall? What are you taking? Bon Voyage!
