Packing for Bend, OR – Wish Me Luck

In T-24 hours, Jonathan, GG and I are off to Bend, OR for another adventure in the Pacific Northwest. I’m originally an East Coast girl and he a southern gentleman, but we’ve been living the dream in San Francisco since May 2013. We love California because there are so many neat places to visit without even leaving the state. But now that we’ve been up and down the Golden State, we figure it’s time to explore a new city and state. We chose Bend because of its dog-friendly reputation. Nobody leaves baby GG in the corner!


I’ve been watching the forecast like a hawk so that I can plan my outfits accordingly. Evidently San Francisco and Karl the Fog have met their match. Mid 70s during the day and 40s at night…I kid you not. I’m packing looks that can go from day to night with or without a jacket. If it’s anything like SF, it’ll be freezing by Happy Hour…I’m not afraid to break out the Uggs if I need ’em! Here is a sneak peek into my suitcase and what I am packing for Bend. Click the pink buttons to shop each item!

A t-shirt dress is always a good idea. You can dress in one with sandals, platform sneakers, or booties. You can also layer it up with a scarf, jacket, or hat. More importantly, it’ll have enough room for a beer belly. Bend is known for its breweries! Finally, you already know I have a go-to outfit (as seen here). So obviously I’m bringing a slightly different version of it. This black and white tee is perfect because it’ll pair well with black cut off shorts as well as destroyed denim.

Tee | T-Shirt Dress | Camo Jacket | Leopard Jacket | Destroyed Jeans | Booties | Uggs (just in case) | Sneakers | Crop Top | Fringe Hem Jeans


Be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories for behind the scenes trip fun. As long as everything goes as planned I will have a full travel guide to Bend, OR, including where to stay, where to eat, and what to wear on the blog next week!
