How to Pack for a Girlfriends' Getaway #Bloggersinthecity

I'm packing for a short getaway to San Francisco with girlfriends* (see below) so

I'm making a list in advance for myself so I remember everything.

 I'm a big list person are you?

Here are a few of my must-haves:


For the weather in San Francisco layering and

comfortable shoes for walking are musts.

*Scarf for chilly breezes in the city

*Camel trench coat

*Black moto jacket

*2 colorful blouses

*1 Animal print belt

*Sheath dress with belt

*2 Skinny jeans (1 dark denim/1 black)



*Lounge wear for cozy late night conversations at the hotel

*Clutch purse for dinner out (rather than my big bag)



*Heels for dinner out

*Sandals for hotel room

 Other Essentials:


*iPhone with apps for Open Table (our dining reservations) and other favorites

*iPad (with kindle for reading if I can't sleep)

*Hotel registration (thank you Hotel Monaco)!

*Cash (small bills for tipping)

*Roasted almonds and perhaps a bottle of wine for sharing

*Small Travel Candle for my hotel room

*Chargers for tech items

*This getaway is a special one since I have been invited to join fellow local bloggers

Adrienne of 'The Rich Life on a Budget' here and Kim from 'Northern California Style' here

on this little adventure.

So exciting!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Adrienne a couple of months ago here

and though I haven't met Kim I already feel like I know her.

Blogging makes such a unique connection for us 

around the world, don't you agree?

Follow along on our #bloggers in the city on instagram (see my sidebar)

and Adrienne kindly posted links to our instagram feeds on her post today here.

Thank you in advance to the fabulous Hotel Monaco here!

We arrive bright and early tomorrow.....
