Packing: A Long Weekend in North Carolina

Thursday I am heading to North Carolina to see my mom. And I am so excited for cooler weather! I wish I was going for more than four days, so I could wear even more sweaters, scarves, boots, and puffer vests! We are doing all things Fall - holiday fairs, looking at leaves (I guess that's a thing), sipping cocoa, fires in the fireplace, etc. It's been hard not to over-pack, but here is what I am planning on wearing:

As I'm posting this picture, I realize I am basically a walking J.Crew advertisement (oops).

I am most excited to break out my Cocoon Coat, Navy Riding Boots, Herringbone Puffer Vest (sold out, but I also love this one and this one), Pocket Tunic (also sold out), and Ruffle Collar Sweatshirt!

The weather report is mixed, so I am trying to bring a little bit of variety, since I really don't know how cold I am going to be.

I feel like I am cheating, but this wardrobe break could not have come at a better time. I still have eight days left in my 30 X 30 Challenge and I have to admit, I am so tired of those 30 pieces of clothing! Hopefully this break will reinvigorate me and I can be even more creative with my final looks.

What are your favorite fall/winter activities?

  1. I love these outfits! I am so excited to be breaking out my cold weather gear too :)

    Prep on a Budget

  2. These are all great picks, you've been doing a great job with your 30 day challenge but I can understand that you are getting bored with certain pieces. Love that plaid scarf you chose!

  3. 1. There is nothing wrong with being a walking J.Crew advertisement
    2. That vest is so swoon worthy, I'm dying...why does it have to be sold out!?!

  4. Back at home, Victorian Strolls are rather popular (we have a few historic communities), and I've been going since I was a little kid - it's basically a winter street festival at night. They are usually freezing, but sometimes the weather holds out! I'm not sure what I'll do this year now that I've moved though - maybe stay at home and watch Christmas Vacation :)

  7. If you feel like you are cheating you probably are...
