No joke- this travel guide should have been put together a few years ago. My bestie and I have had this trip on the books for almost a decade and finally got to take it late last year. We picked the perfect time to go- the weather was gorgeous! We also made a very quick stop in San Francisco for bridge pics (because you have to stop if you're going over the Golden Gate Bridge) so we packed a few warm pieces as well since San Francisco is always chilly. This turned out to be a good thing because even though it was quite warm during the day, it was fairly cold at night in Napa! Today I put together a little packing guide of items I took with me for our short getaway.
I've learned over the years that if I'm going to be doing a lot of sightseeing then a crossbody bag is absolutely necessary. Especially when you want your hands free for your wine.
I don't have a big Neverfull like a lot of the gorgeous bloggers I see on Instagram but I've figured out that on a plane, almost any tote bag will do as long as it fits the essentials.
I'm so glad I brought a lightweight scarf with me because not only does it provide a little extra warmth on the plane (or during a quick meal stop in San Francisco); it also covers stains on your blouse pretty well (not that I would know firsthand...).
I love a good pair of yoga crops- especially when grape stomping is on the itinerary! A cute lightweight top in a breezy fabric and some fun sandals are great for wandering the many gorgeous vineyards comfortably.
Don't forget a sweater! Especially if you want to stop in San Francisco. Even in the dead of summer, San Francisco can get pretty chilly in certain spots and at night!
