Tomorrow we are flyin’ out for a fun weekend in San Francisco! I was brainstorming about what to pack and had a post idea. I wanted to pick a theme every week (or most weeks, let’s be honest) and round up some of my favorite “finds” and chat about that topic and those items! Putting together posts like this really gets my wheels turning and is so much more fun than shooting outfit posts to me. I’m hoping these can be posts where we chat and share favorites and interact!
So like I said, Riley and I are headed to SF for a few days to celebrate my 21st and our four year anniversary, which was last month. We’ve actually never travelled just the two of us, so we’re so excited. Last year, we went to Europe with his family and saw Italy, Croatia, Greece, and Turkey, which was incredible. I think since then, we’ve had a major travel bug. While SF ain’t no Florence, we’e so excited nevertheless. We’re going to eat our way through the city and I cannot wait. I’m packing just my Louis Vuitton Neverfull and a carry-on suitcase, as this is just a weekend trip.
When I pack my personal item for the plane, there is some items I won’t be caught without. If you know me in “real life,” i’m kind of a control freak, overly organized, “early is on time,” type of girl. I’m pretty particular about packing because I have nightmares about getting caught unprepared without my stuff. My “essentials” pouch contains any medicine, chapstick, a mini hair brush, feminine products, hair ties, pens, etc. This pouch a totally moves with me from bag to bag and it makes it way easier to find my things, rather than digging around forever. Mine is a super ugly black nylon one and i’m thinking I may need to upgrade to a cute one like this. I always bring or wear a cozy scarf or cardigan that can double as a blanket because i’m totally “that girl” who is always freezing, no matter what. Which leads me to my next must have… fuzzy socks. Yep, i’m talking about the ugliest, most obnoxious fuzzy socks I own (which are likely Christmas themed!) I’m putting my new bag (on sale) inside of my tote so that I can save room in my suitcase. I’ll be carrying the new bag around the city. Obviously I carry other important things like travel documents and a change of clothes, because life doesn’t revolve around fuzzy socks and lip balm.
As far as my suitcase goes, i’m trying to pack light and go with versatile things. We’re looking at 62 degrees and windy weather all three days, so i’ll be packing my basic favorite tees to layer with jackets and cardigans. I’m brining one pair of black jeans, and one blue. I’ll wear the black out in the evening with booties and a cute top/ jacket combo. I’m brining one pair of tennis shoes that i’ll wear on the plane, one pair of booties, and one pair of “cute” sandals or flats. I wish I had seen these Adidas sooner because they would have been SO perfect for walking around the city.
I’m so looking forward to seeing San Francisco. It’s a city i’ve wanted to visit forever. We’re going to try to just walk, walk, walk and eat, eat, eat. In my opinion, that’s the easiest and most enjoyable way to check out a new city. If you have any last minute SF faves or even travel/ packing tips, I would love to hear them! I hope you enjoyed this fun little Friday Finds chit chat and I hope to do many more!
