The first thing to think about when packing for a trip is: where are you going and what are you doing? This helps to pack smart and leave behind the unnecessary fluff.

Travelling
While en route, comfort is king but because suitcase real estate is in high demand, we also wanted to wear something that could be mixed in throughout the break. A scarf is a frequent traveller’s best friend because it can be worn for warmth, style and also be used as a pillow in case of emergencies.

This time of year can be tricky. The weather report predicted lots of sun but with scattered showers and overcast skies making the temperature fluctuate. We used our warm jackets and layers were a smart choice. We were able to put on and take off as the weather dictated.

Sightseeing and shopping
As we trekked from our San Francisco downtown hotel to shopping in The Mission District to taking pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge, we kept it casual-cute. We wore our favorite jeans with sweaters that had charm. And crucially, we chose shoes that were flat and comfortable.

Date night
Because the whole point of the trip was to reconnect with our loved ones (and remember that we were wives before we were parents), we picked outfits that made us feel special for a fancy meal. Brooke choose a bright pink monochromatic look bright pink monochromatic look that was fun and electrifying. While I picked a vintage-inspired dress with glamorous details to make even Cinderella jealous. Did you check out those shoes? Between our dresses and our guys’ blazers, it really made the night unforgettable.
