Fashion

Spring time in SF this year has been pretty windy & rainy; unfortunately not ideal weather to be wearing skirts and dresses. Although when you get a little bit of luck a sunny day pops up here and there. Making use of my opportunity I threw on the easiest red, white, and blue outfit you’d ever did see. Its not 4th of July inspired on anything, I’m just making a fun observation :p

This denim skirt has a bit of flare making it instantly flattering. It definitely was the perfect outfit for walking around on a sunny Saturday afternoon. And these sandals, I can’t go on enough about the comfort level. Typically I don’t wear heels but these are a game changer.

 

Skirt – Asos Denim Button Front Mini Skater

Shoes – Aldo Resplandina Sandal

San Francisco

Live it Local | Afterlife Boutique + TacoBar

Being lucky enough to grow up in San Francisco, I’ve bounced from neighborhood to neighborhood and experienced great local shopping/eats everywhere I went.

I’m starting this segment to feature awesome spots that you should totally check out if you’re visiting, or if you’re looking to discover new places in your own city :pWalking around the sunny mission neighborhood I rediscovered one my favorite vintage shops in the neighborhood. Afterlife Boutique right between Valencia and 21st street.

They sell great 80’s & 90’s retro pieces and unique jewelry at really reasonable prices.Even though I had only a few minutes to browse I couldn’t help but get sucked into their great jewelry selection.

I snagged two pairs of earrings at really reasonable prices. The total was around 20 bucks which for quality jewelry, pretty amazing.

 

Golden Tattoo bracelet not from AfterLife, but  I had to pair it with my nice new earrings :p

So you’re walking in the Fillmore District when you start craving Mexican food and you wonder to yourself where do I go? You go to Tacobar!

Mike and I just stopped here on a sunny Saturday afternoon for a quick lunch. Sipping my margarita I enjoyed a shrimp quesadilla that was pretty filling. Also featured and also delicious – the chicken Torta.

Check back for more great local spots!

Wedding

Mrs Box

I haven’t mentioned on the blog yet but… I’m now newly engaged. Yay! So this will be the first of many wedding inspo/related posts.

A few years ago I mentioned to my boyfriend (now fiancée) that when he proposes he needs to get me one of the Mrs Box.

My audacity right?

Pinning countless wedding related images I’ve encountered many photos of these beautiful little boxes; wrapped in velvet and always in a pretty color. The Mrs.Box is a brand that brings joy back to ring boxes in delicate and bright way. They call the boxes wedding heirlooms and being a sucker for any cute tradition I was hooked.

Mike (my fiancée) remembered my request and to my surprise I found myself presented with my engagement ring in a blush colored box.

I’m definitely a lucky lady and that little detail of a cute wedding box that I wanted years ago makes my engagement story even better. It goes to show the important people in your life will remember the little things as silly as they may seem <3

Travel

Growing up in California I always heard of the Madonna Inn  with their famous themed rooms, pink cakes, and kitsch charm. A few weeks ago during for a quick overnight stop I was able to stay in the Vous Room. Ornate blue wallpaper, a round bed, and an all orange bathroom were just some of the amazing details this room had to offer. I couldn’t help myself from taking a bunch of photos.

Mirror Mirror on the wall… Continue Reading
