I am in full preparation mode here since our trip to Northern California is around the corner. I clearly am a visual learner because before I started packing for this trip, I laid out different outfits via Pinterest. You guys, doing this step makes me giddy. I love dreaming about what to wear. From my time living in Southern California, I know that there is a casual presence and cooler temperature especially at the beach and at night. Our plan is to fly into San Fransisco and from there travel to Monterey for the first night, Big Suf for the second night and then drive up to Sonoma for our last night. I can't wait to share with you our adventure. For now, here are the pictures from my Style board that are inspiration for my outfits.
My goal is to only use a carry on. I love a challenge! I hope to take black jeans, white jeans, one pair of shorts, denim jacket, green vest, navy dress, 3/4 sleeve lightweight sweater, lightweight casual top, chambray shirt, gingham shirt, sneakers, sandals, and booties. All of these items will mix and match well. Its all about layering.
Here is an idea of what will be in my bag.
I will likely throw a swimsuit in my bag, too, just in case. I can hardly wait to see the beauty of the west coast. Its been many, many years since I've been to that part of California. What would you recommend to pack?
