Packing For San Francisco

  Hi there Ladies!
Finally figured out what to pack to San Francisco
Not an easy one
You'll think i would make my life easy and  just pack jeans, runners, t-shirts and sweaters?

That would be too boring or too easy, right?
 I believe there are other comfortable stylish alternatives
The only neutral piece is a black Lululemon jacket called the Uba Hoodie

I didn't want to carry a heavy coat
This  jacket is perfect ! It will protect me from the rain, wind and light and if the temperature drops
Plus it goes with all my outfits -

It has thumb holes to keep my wrists and hands warm

I love that detail!
Here are some of the colorful and comfortable outfits i put together to wear in San Francisco



This i will wear on the plane going to SF
I'm still thinking about what color leggings i will wear
Black, pink, or pale mint green...there is a little green in the sweater

The pink was added recently on this vintage dress
I added 5 inches of fabric
I will wear this dress with purple leggings

I chose versatile items for if i want to move them around


 Probably wear this outfit  on the plane coming back

No place for high heels
We'll be walking all day
I chose colorful, comfortable shoes

Ye! It's finally done!

 I Added extra sweaters, leggings, tights ,ect....

I'm all set now, it has to fit in the suitcase, ha,ha,ha!

Oh well, I'll put some in Mr. D's

Snacks for the plane-

The best energy bars i ever had

Full of natural ingredients

I can't eat plane food, totally disgusting and very expensive

We'll probably have breakie at the airport since we have to be there 3 hours before the flight

 Plus we stop over at Vegas- we'll probably get something to eat there for lunch


Got my National Geographic guide!

I will read this on the plane

I had a glance already, it's an excellent guide

Yes and yes i changed the ever changing hair color!

I think pink suits me best

Perfect for SF!
Have fun and I  will be back soon!
Je vous fait la bise

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

Oh Ariane! I am so excited for you. Just looking at all the fun clothing you are packing for your trip gets me giddy.

Wear pink or pale mint green tights, not black please! You will look so fresh and spring like.

Have a super wonderful time,

Hello Ariane,
I see you are well prepared for SF and you look fantastic and full of expectation. I'm sure you have choosen the right pieces to feel good and I'm also sure you will also find some in the second hand shops there.
I can't believe you have got that leather skirt. I had such a skirt when i was young, I loved it. Look forward to see you wearing it.
Have a great trip, some wonderful days and come back full of energy and inspiration.

What fantastic packing, you are going to turn heads in those gorgeous outfits. I'm so envious, I wish I was coming with you! Please take lots of photos. xxxxx

Good choice.
You are looking glorious, dear Ariane.
Enjoy and take photos.

I think that if you packed just jeans, runners, t-shirts and sweaters, they would still be the most splendidly colourful and awesome examples of such items and personally I don't think you could look boring even if you tried really hard :)
I am in awe with that stunning psychedelic dress and the suede patchwork skirt.
I think you've managed to pack a great selection of garments that can be mixed and matched into a plethora of fabulous outfits and I'm really looking forward to all the outfit pics from the trip.
Wise choice about the no heels, there is nothing worse than sore frigging feet when you are sightseeing.
You look very excited and like Vix I wish I was coming with you too :)
Lot's of love,
