Packing for Rockport and Fall Preview

I’m traveling tomorrow with a sweet friend to one of my favorite little salty vibe spots here in New England. My friend has never been Rockport before, so I thought let’s just go!! I’m excited we get to spend this time together and bonus! stay at one of my favorite boutique hotels and preview a little fall fashion while we are at it. More on all that soon!

Here’s what I’m packing for Rockport, and poor Scout was not happy seeing my suitcase come out. Zoey was napping, so she didn’t see me pack or else she would have jumped in my bag. I wanted to share some cute early fall season picks that I’ll be wearing on this trip along with my fall luggage and packing favorites. I’m packing hot weather stuff too, but I definitely have been bitten by the fall bug and wanted to highlight some favorites you can shop now.


When I start to transition seasons, I like to mix up my luggage and bags a bit. Once mid-August hits, I pull out the Navy Blue Terminal One Luggage. The large suitcase is what I prefer for fall’s bulkier clothes like sweaters and vests. I brought out my Suede Essential Tote and I love to use it for carrying my laptop, work accessories, and extra camera gear. The Twill Navy & White Duffle Bag has been a favorite all year and perfect for extra shoes, a make-up bag, any extra jackets and blankets.

For organizing my suitcase, I love the Striped Packing Cube Set of 4. Perfect for stowing a pair of shoes, smaller items, and under things. The bigger cube I like to use for more delicate apparel. My Medium Sized Raffia Jewelry Case is a perfect size for a suitcase and its hard case will keep your baubles protected.


I did pack summer clothes too, but I wanted to share some new fall preview apparel that I just adore and many of these you can wear now or in a few weeks.

Joules is always a favorite for coastal apparel and I adore their fall offerings every year. The Joules Heritage Collection is one I always check out once I get the autumn bug. Fall items have already hit their site, and here’s some favorites that I’ll be wearing on this trip and all season long. Seeing fall clothing on my rack is getting me really excited for the season. Tweeds, fall florals, quilted outerwear, and those rich autumnal colors will be a nice change.

Here are some fall preview favorites I think you will just adore! Click on the image to shop now before they sell out.

Scout was not happy to see that suitcase and I definitely will have to take her and Zoey on some fall trips this year!

I can’t wait to share this trip with you and an early fall preview from Joules! Rockport is such a great spot to visit for that full New England experience.
