Your packing list for a mountain weekend adventure

As summer winds to a close and fall breezes start to kick up, you might have a quick weekend getaway to the nearby mountains on your mind. Whether you’re off to a few days in Cashiers, Highlands or Blue Ridge—all within a couple of hours’ drive from Buckhead—these looks will give you a head start on what to bring along to stay stylish.
When you’re out and about on a low-key mountain adventure—maybe a riverside picnic, picking apples or looking for turning leaves in brilliant colors—this outfit goes the distance. We paired a pair of Prana Kara jeans ($75), which have a stretchy, low-rise fit, with a colorful Horny Toad Willowy Button Tank ($62). Then, we layered up with a Splendid Drapey Lux V-Neck, in Papaya, ($78). The look is complete with soft Minnetonka Kilty Suede Moccasins ($33.95) and a Will Douglas Postal Bag ($495), just right for bringing essentials—like a journal, camera, snacks and bottle of water—for a day exploring. All available at Buckhead’s Mountain High Outfitters.
After a day of exploring the great outdoors, you will have worked up an appetite. For a low-key dinner out, we chose a stylish outfit from Buckhead’s fab’rik boutique. Slim-fitting, dark-washed fab’rik jeggings ($68) and a fab’rik sleeveless detailed top ($42) provide the foundation for one of fall’s hottest trends: a long, printed kimono ($66). Accessorize with an Atlanta-made Fabulina leather necklace ($69), gray Urban Expressions handbag ($98) and a pair of black JP Original wedge heels ($34) and you’re ready to hit the (mountain) town.
