I thought I would finish the year with a warmer destination packing list. No too warm though. Something nice but not requiring a winter parka, so as per request I have What to pack for San Francisco. Your clothing choices obviously vary depending on the time of year so this is more focused on the mid range temps of spring, early summer, and fall. But a few small changes can make it work for any time of year.

Since this is boxing week a lot of winter sales have already started which actually ticks me off because 95% of the things I bought for Christmas are on sale this week 🙁 I tried to include as many sale pieces as I could in my choices so that you can get the best deal if you are looking. Some of the pieces like the sunglasses, the yellow and the polka dot scarf, the sneakers, and the animal print purse are all part of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale which runs until January 2nd. They are offering some great deals up to 50% off. Also the yellow sweater, the black blouse, black boots, and the flats are also on sale at the moment this post went live.

As for my selections, I went with a bit of colour by adding some bright green, a little pattern, and a touch of yellow. The jacket is a wool jacket but the lining is thinner so as not to be too warm. The wide leg denim jeans are fantastic. Such a 70’s vibe and I absolutely love them. The list is for a 10 day trip and I’ll put together a combination of outfits from these pieces in the next post.

  1. OMG, this wardrobe is so cute! I can’t even wear green or mustard, but I love them here. And those jeans! Oh, those sneakers. I just bought a pair of high tops in a brocade no less, so if they don’t work out…

    Anyway, thank you for the very fun wardrobe daydreaming. Cheers, Ardith

  2. Thanks! I love green and mustard. Like love. love, and question why I don’t have more pieces in these colours. I get my head wrapped around the “when in doubt, buy it it black” mantra way too much and I need to branch out.

    I use these to wardrobe daydream too 😉 Brocade hi-tops sound ace.
