The Trip / The Outfit – Quebec City in Autumn

The Trip - The Outfit - Quebec City in Autumn on Lost and Fawned6 years ago when we got married we didn’t end up going on a honeymoon.  It just wasn’t the right time and we couldn’t afford more than a couple of extra nights at our hotel.  But we did plan one.  We had originally planned to spend some time in Quebec City in September or October.  So today’s The Trip / The Outfit post is featuring that trip (but today, instead of 6 years ago).

Since you end up doing a ton of walking in any city and the weather can be unpredictable in fall, I would bring a good pair of comfortable boots.  These Sorel’s can go from the streets to the parks easily.  I would keep a pair of flats in my bag to change into if we were going into a nicer restaurant or historic church.

I picked pieces you could dress up or down for evening dinners or afternoon hikes.  When traveling, I invest in a good bag and good shoes.  Everything else I save on.

The Trip / The Outfit – Home for the Holiday

The Trip - The Outfit  -  Home for the Holiday Weekend

We are trying to get our holiday plans lined up.  We might be going away for the weekend to visit family for Thanksgiving this year.  Here in the Midwest, you have to prepare for any type of weather this time of year, so layers are important.

I like to look feminine and semi-formal, but comfortable on Thanksgiving.  I included versatile pieces in this collection that can be worn in multiple ways.  That sweater is perfect for dinner, or to throw over your PJ’s for breakfast.  I always like to pack a pair of pretty slippers for a weekend trip.  I also included an adorable duffel and take-along dish so your sweet potato casserole arrives nice and warm.

  2. 4-Piece Easy Grab Pyrex Set  –  $34.55

The Trip – The Outfit / Shopping in Columbus, Ohio

The Trip The Outfit  -  Shopping and Dining in Columbus Ohio in AutumnAutumn is the perfect time for a weekend away.  If you are in the midwest, Columbus is a great getaway for a weekend of food and shopping.  I’ve put together an outfit that would be perfect for a day in some of my favorite neighborhoods.  It would start with a  walk in German Village, then browsing shops in the Short North, dinner at any of the amazing restaurants on  High Street (might I recommend Surly Girl Saloon or The Rossi) and of course dessert at the world famous Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream.

Here are my picks for warm, comfortable and stylish look for this trip.

The Trip / The Outfit – Backpacking in Fall

Backpacking in Allegheny National Forest in October on Lost and FawnedEven though the next couple of months are going to be chock-full of events (two family weddings in one month!), Jared and I are dead-set on two backpacking trips before the winter weather sets in.  The second one will be in October, which is the latest we have ever hit the trail.  We will be going back to Minister Creek in Allegheny National Forest (see our photos from the last visit to this park here) with some friends.  We have already upgraded our sleeping bags, but I’m going to need to pack a little differently this trip.

I put together a quick must-have list for this trip.  Of course I’ll be packing more than this (a water-proof pair of pants to layer over the leggings, etc) but this is a good starting place.  I have this exact pack in the green color and it’s held up to years of abuse.  I highly recommend it for a beginners women’s pack.

the trip / the outfit – Orcas Island, Washington

the trip the outfit - Orcas Island WashingtonIt’s almost time for summer travel.  I don’t think we’ll be taking any trips this year, but it doesn’t stop me from planning the hypothetical trips I would take if we hit the lottery.

A new addition to my list is a week in the San Juan Islands between Washington and Canada.  I’d rent a cabin on Orcas Island and spend the week hiking, whale watching and stuffing my face with farm-fresh, local produce.
