Style for a Fall Trip to New England

Style for a Fall Trip to New England

Predicting the weather in New England during the fall is a guessing game. It could be tortuously cold. Or it could be quite mild. So how could a Southern Midlifer dress in layers and still have style for a fall New England trip?

First I planned a travel outfit. It was HOT and rainy when we left Alabama. So I chose a comfortable soft tank, with stretch pants, and a sweater and comfortable walking shoes. It’s always cold on airplanes you know. And since we were leaving for the airport at 3 am, a hat was a MUST!

Next chore was to begin gathering all my long sleeve shirts. Now, our trip was on October 8 and I was packing at the end of September.

In Alabama.

It was still HOT here. So I had to open my tubs of winter clothes to find my last years winter wear.

I also ordered a couple of shipments from Stitch Fix before our trip asking for long sleeves and sweater type tops so I had a few new ones to add to my wardrobe.

I really need to find a better way to take outfit pictures, but I haven’t been able to figure that out yet. Forgive my dirty mirror, appliance cords, real life bathroom selfies.

And of course, I over packed. But I know me. And every time I pack minimally, (an outfit a day), I am horribly disappointed in my options during the trip. So I over pack. I like to have choices.

Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest

The day IΒ met my Facebook FriendsΒ was fairly warm and I just wore a t-shirt with my quilted vest. I did keep a coat in the car at all times though.

But it was a different story the day we went up Mount Washington. It was cold and up on the Mountain summit it was FREEZING! I wore layers upon layers.

Thank goodness these wimpy southerners took our trip in early October because the weather on Mount Washington has been beyond miserable lately!

And so, my layering plans worked out fine.

But the weight of my suitcase didn’t. #overfiftypounds #oops

 

Are you an overpacker? Or are you the “carry-on bag only” person?

    Better New England in the fall, than New England in the Winter, I always say. Hope you guys are doing well. Let me know next time you are up here. We can get together.

      OH NO! I forgot that you live up there!! I can’t keep up with you anymore since I don’t see you on FB. I would have LOVED to see you and have you show us around. πŸ™‚

      That is amazing. I cannot imagine! haha I am worst about shoes. I want a different pair of shoes for each outfit. Although if I am sight seeing I don’t need as many. I sure am impressed Courtney. πŸ™‚

      Oh how sweet! Thank you so much Teresa. Mr. Menace doesn’t complain too much but if he does, I remind him of the time my bags couldn’t fit in his car trunk because of all the pairs of shoes he had in there! πŸ™‚
