This weekend we’re headed on our summer travel season. After a June filled with a launch season, we’re ready for a bit of a break and can’t wait to head back to our favorite spot. Our last visit to Sequoia and Yosemite was 4 years ago. It’s time we’ve returned. With little ones in tow, this adventure will be filled with fun moments with family and can’t wait for new memories to be made. We’re busy doing chores, batch working (making sure the blog and client work is ready to go as we travel), and washing laundry in preparation for our trip. Today we decided to let you all behind the scenes and know what we’re packing for our latest adventure!

What’s In Our Bag: Summer in Sequoia and Yosemite
Dr. Bronner’s: We adore Dr. Bronner’s and use this for pretty much everything on trips. Hair, body, and hand soap. It’s perfect to lighten your makeup bag and is a great essential that serves a variety of purposes.
White Tee: There’s nothing better than a perfect white tee. By layering a flannel or button down on top, this top will help you stay cool and covered without getting scorched by the sun. On my last trip to Los Angeles, I spent an afternoon on Abbot Kinney Blvd and stumbled into Alternative Apparel. Filled with stunning basics and organic cottons, we love their pieces and have been loyal ever since.
Olive dress: Great for meals out or long days in the cart, we love this easy piece and have worn it over and over again.
Better sweater: Worth the investment, Patagonia is a brand that changes the fashion game. With ethical sourcing, this was my first Patagonia piece and one I worn for six years. This sweater has seen Yosemite, backpacking in the Red River Gorge, and Colorado.
French Terry Sweatshirt: With ethical sourcing and a fresh coral color for summer. We love to throw this layer on for evenings by the fire and is sure to keep you warm.
Snap Pack by Everlane: I bought this backpack when I took my first trip to Estonia. It perfectly conceals both a laptop, camera, and lenses without looking like it houses such valuable items. I love it for international travel and for parks trips alike. With a padded laptop sleeve and expandable bucket pouch interior, it can adjust to whatever haul you might have.
Waterbottle: Our Hydroflask is a daily essential. Whether I’m staying hydrated in the NorCal summer 3-digit temps or hiking in on a half day trail, this water bottle is vacuum sealed, keeps liquids cold all day and has a variety of tops (perfect for switching out when it comes to hot and cold drinks).
Mover Pack: This is a fresh release from Everlane that we love. With a massive interior, smart styling, and heavy duty canvas, it does the heavy lifting. Perfect for the week within the park, we love the rich forest green color.
Plaid Button Down: Made out a lightweight and breezy woven fabric, there is nothing link the softness of a Rails plaid button down. It’s the summer version of a classic flannel we adore.
Black Sneakers: A pair of Nikes are the perfect shoe for hitting the trail. In a classic black with white check, they pair with multiple outfits throughout the trip.
Happy Camper Tank: With every moment of travel and adventure, I love to pack a few graphic tees. These are great for the day and can quickly be layered for sun cover or a sweatshirt for warmth. This tank is perfect and flows for wherever your adventure takes you.
LA Dodgers Hat:Whether you love the East Coast or the West Coast, this hat is another neutral I wear time and time again. (I love it for all those days you could care less about doing your hair on the trail.)
