An Autumn Packing Guide from Paris to Peru

Divided by the Atlantic, our magazine's co-founders live on two separate continents—giving a literal meaning to being "Here & There". With a new season of adventures ahead, they decided to share a few tips for living and travelling in their respective locations: Europe and South America. While Julia heads into spring in Peru, Aleyah remains in France, where the autumn chill is setting in.

Cozy sweaters are a must for fall days in Paris and while traversing the cooler Andean regions of Peru. While shooting around the city, Aleyah layered up in Montreal-based California Moonrise ensembles.

Meanwhile, Julia explored the knitting and weaving centric communities of Peru and picked up an alpaca sweater from Santa Catalina Street in Arequipa. Often hiking and walking around the city,  Julia brought along her BonLook sunnies, which are lightweight and versatile, making for a great travel accessory.

Mexican-made, Paris-based Meshica DF styles are great to sport around Paris during the season. The military jacket is perfect for layering and with the added colour patches, also makes for a stylish statement piece. And of course, a cozy scarf is key for the season change!

Staying hydrated while traveling in Peru

Hydration is key, especially when spending time in high altitude areas. While in Cusco, Puno and Arequipa, Julia always had her Hydro Flask in tow, a great option for keeping liquids hot or cold for several hours.  Aritzia's Beatriz Romper is a comfortable choice for explorations in the humid Amazon Rainforest.  She also found a piece of Paris in Cuzco: a necklace from L'atelier by Grid, a boutique owned by Parisian designer and Cusco-transplant Ingrid Thieblemont.
