My good friend Ellen and I took a trip up to Frisco this weekend for a quick getaway from our responsibilities, but we did manage to snap a couple photos for our blogs. I tried to pack as light as possible for the trip, so instead of bringing some bulky jeans, or trousers I'd have to iron, I brought this structured pleather skirt which takes up a lot less space, weighs almost nothing, and is extremely comfortable to wear.  I paired it with a loose, bright blouse and some solid- colored heels which, I admit, were a bit hard, but at a height I could walk around in all day.

For traveling, I tend to prefer pleather material because in case I spill something on myself (I'm so clumsy) or get it dirty whilst taking the Muni or other public transportation, I know I'll be able to clean it with a wet paper towel. That's also why I love coated canvas or Saffiano leather (think Louis Vuitton Neverfull or Prada tote) handbags for everyday, on-the-go handbags. Bringing lambskin or cloth/canvas handbags (think quilted Chanel flaps or a Gucci canvas Boston) make me so nervous, unless it's for a short outing where I'm just in and out of my car.

Where do you go for a quick weekend getaway?
