Memo 026: FishermansUnionNapaWharfSquareValley

If you couldn’t guess this, I have a tendency to over pack on vacations. I live by the motto “Stay ready so that you don’t have to get ready.” So, my bag is usually ready for not one but all three of these events including separate coats, shoes and handbags: A casual dinner and movie, a party with the girls, and a black tie affair! Ok, ok I don’t always pack a ball gown but for the most part, I’m ready for damn near anything.
However, when I make it home after paying round trip overweight bag fees, I have come to notice that I don’t wear HALF of the things that are in my bag. So, I’ve been trying to do like Erykah Badu suggests and “pack light!”
So, for this trip home for the holidays, I brought one piece of outer wear and one bag for the entire week! Trust me, this is a big step for me.

    I love San Fran and Napa valley. I actually visited the Robert Mondavi winery this past August. You look great as per usual. Love your harness. That is a unique touch to your blue dress 🙂

    With Love,

      Thanks Ashley! I had a BAWL! Everything in Northern California is so close and the weather was mild. Not bad, not bad at all.
