    Though it may feel like a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of season, autumn is far more than pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations. It's apple-picking, homecoming weekends with old friends, and antique hunting — the kinds of things that call for a 48-hour getaway. The tricky part, of course, is figuring out how to pack strategically for these mini trips when the weather is neither hot nor cold. It's all about a few key pieces that let you cozy up or cool off.

    So, whether you're headed to Oktoberfest or making that obligatory trek to visit your S.O.'s parents, we've rounded up the must-have items you need in your duffle bag, along with the perfect Clarks shoes to match. Ahead, take a gander at a few of our favorite transitional outfits for when your life is actually in transit. Advertisement

    Harvest-Picking
    'Tis the season for homemade apple and pumpkin pies — and the best way to enjoy them is by using your very own handpicked fruits and vegetables, of course. Get into the spirit by making a weekend out of visiting apple orchards and pumpkin patches. Pack plenty of outdoor-appropriate layers, along with a hands-free bag.

    Museum-Hopping
    Anyone familiar with the Babes At The Musuem Instagram feed knows that perusing galleries in jeans and a T-shirt just doesn't cut it anymore. Instead, pack statement pieces like an asymmetrical leather skirt or a gorgeously structured coat for a look that deserves to be on exhibit.

    Weekend In The Vineyards

    Antique Shopping
    Pack up a car full of your best buds, and drive off to the rural country where antique gems and charming home goods await your adoption — hopefully on the cheap. Don't forget your scarf and beanie in case you come upon an outdoor flea market.
