Cashmere Wrap

"There's nothing worse than being cold on an airplane, and I've bought my share of synthetic travel blankets and scratchy sweaters over the years. So this fall, I'm treating myself to a cashmere wrap for the ultimate in comfort, warmth, and luxury." Clara Sedlak, Executive Editor

Dr. Martens Bianca Chelsea Boot

"I’ve had an infatuation with Dr. Martens 1460s for quite some time now, but this season I’m ready to say bye to laces and get a slip-on pair. I love that their Chelsea boots are easy to get on and off (aka airport-friendly) but still feature the brand’s signature durable build." Chelsea Stuart, Writer

Samsonite Luggage Inova HS Spinner

"I have a hard time justifying splurging on items that will only factor into my wardrobe on an infrequent basis. But at this point, my scuffed-up, ten-year-old Samsonite is getting embarrassing. So I'm upgrading to the Samsonite Inova Spinner, which is sleek, easy to maneuver, and hella stylish." Siobhan Reid, Writer

RE/DONE Jeans

"In my opinion, fall is the best time to to treat yourself to investment pieces, and this year, I'm lusting after this pair of jeans by RE/DONE. They're stylish enough to wear on a trip to Paris or NY, but casual enough that they'll work for all the best fall activities, from apple picking and wine tasting to camping trips!"

Anker Portable Charger

"I like to travel prepared, and for me, having a back-up source of power for my phone gives me enormous peace of mind. My current portable charger is too big to carry around easily, and I love that this charger is as small as a lipstick — so you can always have it handy in your purse without it weighing you down. Anyone who has been without power knows what a life-saver something like this can be, sometimes literally." Kelsey Blodget, ‎Senior Executive Editor

Burgundy Ankle Boots
