Packing List: San Francisco in November

Remember my quick trip to the San Francisco Bay Area a couple weeks ago? If you haven’t read about it yet, check it out here. I did the best suitcase packing I’ve ever done (yeah, I’m bragging!) in that I wore and used every item that I brought. Usually, I lovingly call myself “the overpack packer” because I have a hard time narrowing down what I actually need–a girl’s gotta have fashion options, am I right? But this trip, I was sharing a small suitcase with my mom, so I had to be really choosy when picking my clothes.

Here’s a list of all of the clothing I brought to wear in the San Francisco Bay Area in November:

1 pair long pants/jeans (don’t forget your belt if you need one!)
1 pair neutral capris
1 cardigan sweater
1 pullover sweater
1 jean jacket
3 short-sleeved/tank tops
raincoat with hood
knit hat
pretty scarf
jewelry: necklace, watch, ring

for my interview: 2 blouses
1 pair slacks
1 blazer

Basically, the key is all about the layers. Make sure that all of your clothes can be worn together, to give you the most combinations! The bay can swing from hot to cold in minutes, so having lots of layers is crucial to stay comfortable. Scarves and hats are also great for keeping the wind away. Side note, when I got to SF, I was totally bummed because I forgot to grab my sunglasses as I headed out the door to the airport. That’s the problem with flying when it’s dark out–you don’t think about grabbing your sunnies!

Happy travels, no matter the season!


Currently I’m…November

Can’t believe this week is already Thanksgiving! Hope that wherever you are, you are in the presence of love and family (whatever that may mean to you!). Warm thoughts and good vibes and big hugs to you all. (:

Here’s a little about what I’ve been up to this month:

Currently I’m…November

After a 6 week test streak (yes, it was as horrible as it sounds), I’m finally feeling a little less stressed. This semester has challenged me mentally, physically, and emotionally, and while I still love the career path that I’ve chosen, I couldn’t be happier that there are only 4 weeks left.

But enough about school! I can’t believe next week is already Thanksgiving–I’m having my bestie from California over for the 2nd annual Thanksgiving pizza party. Since neither of us can fly home for the short holiday break, it’s nice to have someone to hang out with (read: someone I force to watch “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” reruns with me while stuffing our faces with homemade pizza). It should be a good holiday! What are your Thanksgiving plans?

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
