Packing for Women: Fall in New England

Updated June 23, 2020.

Visiting New England in fall is on many an all-American bucket list! My sweet husband whisked me away to the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. We had a wonderful time, but sometimes packing for fall weather can be a challenge. To take some of the stress out of your fall trip to New England, here is my ladies’ packing list! As always, this list is acceptable for going carry-on only!

On the Plane

The first thing I think of when choosing an in-flight outfit is comfort. The second thing is storage. Since the flight from D.C. to Burlington is a short one, I forewent my usual legging in favor of jeans—more pockets, more storage! I also went for fall colors and warmth.

Airplane Outfit

Puffy Vest

Long-sleeve T-shirt

Infinity Scarf

Dark Wash Jeans

All-weather Boots

I get more compliments on these boots than any other shoes I have ever owned!

Changes of Clothes

Cozy sweaters are what fall is all about.

Ready for anything.


Black Moisture-wicking Shirt

Keeping Warm

The most important part of packing for cooler temperatures are effective, packable outer layers.

Everything I need to stay warm on chilly mornings and brisk evenings!

Puffy Coat

Running Jacket

Warm Hat

Head Ring

Ear Bags



The Trapp Family Lodge is a treasure trove of activities! Hiking, biking, yoga, swimming, and more are all available. No matter what the season, you will find something active to keep you busy!

Ready for any and all activities!

Workout Tops

Built-in bras are the best invention since sports bras!

Sports Bra

Yoga Capri Pants

These are actually the most comfortable workout pants I own. I love them!

Running Pants

The more exciting the pants, the more likely people in vehicles are to see you coming!

Running Shoes

Bathing Suit


How do I fit it all in? I owe my carry-on only abilities to packing cubes and Osprey Backpacks! I got all this into a 30L Osprey Porter Backpack, with room to spare!

Who loves packing light?
