Today I’m headed on a trip to San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited! I love traveling and exploring new places. Also Chicago has been super hot this summer and I am excited about the cooler temperatures in San Fran. When it comes to packing I like to be a minimalist and only pack what I will wear. I like to be able to mix + match styles as well as plan all my outfits ahead of time so I only bring what I need.

These days my wardrobe choices are limited. I have to admit that dressing the baby bump has not been as easy as I thought {any tips welcomed!}. Although I am still trying to wear as much of the regular styles as possible, there are a few maternity clothes that are going to make it into the suitcase.

Comfortable shoes are a total must, as well as some great pieces for layering. You can never go wrong with a denim jacket and faux leather bomber. Also a good pair of skinny jeans, some cute tops, and stylish lightweight handbags

Lastly, we don’t have too much on the schedule yet so if anyone has any recommendations for fun restaurants or must sees in San Fran feel free to pass them along and leave a message in the comment section below. Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat {username:goldcoast-girl} to check out all the fun!
