Down by the Bay Bridge


I love a good chambray button up, and when I spotted one in a green floral print I had to have it.  I knew I could pair it with several other pieces in my closet, which is something I like to keep in mind when shopping for new items.  As much as I love dressing up, utility and comfort are very important, and I do have somewhat of a uniform I wear during the habitually busy semesters at Berkeley.  It usually consists of jeans, boots, a comfortable top and a warm jacket (pretty much what I wore above).  The weather year round is overcast and I hate being cold, so I usually layer up).  

Jaze had the afternoon off, so we headed to the city to spend the day together.  I was expecting it to be a bit foggy around the Bay Bridge as usual, and was surprised with just how sunny it was (which is why we're squinting or looking down in those photos).  After wandering around the marina, we headed to a small record shop in The Mission District, and managed to find a 1940s jazz vinyl.  Lazy summer afternoons are my favorite.

  10. This jacket is fantastic and I love the contrast between it and the floral skirt! I can't believe how cold it is up in San Fran. It's strange how we're in the same state, yet different worlds almost haha

  11. What a lovely day! And I love how you can slip so seamlessly from retro to grunge (or... grunge, ish) and still look fantastic and totally like yourself! That shirt is darling; I need a good chambray, but I haven't found the perfect one yet.
    Also, did I ever say you're just gorgeous? You and your husband are such a stylish couple!
