Yesterday, I created a guest post on Jessica's blog, bedknobs & baubles, sharing my five travel essentials for the Bay Area (
Jose and San Francisco).
As I shared on her blog, Northern California is
a really important area for me. I was lucky enough to live there for about 3
years while attending graduate school, and look forward to each and every time
I am able to go back to visit. San
Jose has a special place in my heart because that is
where I lived and was able to make so many new friends, who I still keep in
touch with to this day. San Francisco
stole my heart from my first visit there. It is such an amazing city because
every time you visit, you can find a new neighborhood to explore that is
completely different from the next. I always try to pack clothes that can
transition from one activity to the next and are comfortable enough to walk
around and explore in all day.
1. SF Giants Hat: Because you can't make a trip to SF without making sure to catch a Giants game.
2. Gap Boyfriend Jeans: Boyfriend jeans are the perfect transition piece to wear during the day or to dress up at night with a blazer and heels for a nice dinner - preferably a nice Italian meal in
! North Beach
3. Rebecca Minkoff Purse: You can't go wrong with a lightweight crossbody bag while sightseeing around the city all day.
4. Steve Madden Slip Ons: Comfortable walking shoes are a MUST, especially when braving the hills of
. San Francisco
5. Old Navy Cardigan: The weather can often be random and unpredictable in the Bay Area, so I always make sure to have a cardigan or light jacket on stand by, especially in the summer time.
My husband and I are planning a trip there later on this year, and I am already looking forward to it! Some of these items will definitely be in my suitcase. A big thank you to Jessica for having me guest post on your blog, I had a lot of fun putting this list of essentials together. On that note, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
