When I think about taking a trip during the Fall season, it involves a lot of full-colored leaves. Here in California, we don’t get to enjoy a full-seasoned Fall. It usually happens very quickly and by the time the leaves begin to drop, they’re all on the ground. We’ve had trees in our own yard hold out until January to turn, and by then they’re on the ground anyway. So today I am sharing a Fall packing list on a budget, to bring me a little more Fall feeling. I’d imagine this would be perfect for a Fall trip somewhere along the North-Eastern coast, like Maine. All items are under $50 except for the sweater jacket, which I couldn’t bring myself to leave out.

My favorite items from this list are the Padded Parka (it’s so bright for me!), and the bare minerals generation nude lip color. They sent over some for me and I’m in love with the matte finish liquid lipcolor in Icon, as well as the lipstick in Xox. They’re both perfect shades for me for the Fall season.

Today I’m sharing how exactly I pack my beauty goodies so they are organized and take up a little less space so I have room for more items that count (like shoes, ha!).
