Bike rides and pleated skirts






Hello! I apologize for the long break in between posts, I've had a really hard time lately because I had a traumatizing trip to the dentist. I won't go into details but i'll just say that I needed some time to recover, mentally and physically ;)

I took a lovely bike ride down to North beach and wanted to share this incredible view with you! Sometimes I really LOVE living in the city and other times, I feel like being forever alone on the side of a mountain in a teepee. The city life has it's perks, and this skyline is definitely on of them.

Here is an outfit I put together with this incredible pleated peach skirt I scored at a second hand store for $5.00. While I'm confessing, I also got this Top Shop shirt at the same second hand store ($7.00) and this BaubleBar necklace there too ($5.00)!

What's your favorite thrift store find? Hope everyone is having a great week!

Leopard loafers





BF jeans made another appearance! I felt a little claustrophobic in my usual skinnies and wanted something more relaxed. I told you I was hooked! Oh one more thing.. It was BEAUTIFUL outside today, so I took my bike downtown and took a few photos of the river and city skyline. Check out this view!

Cat eyes and a day off!




Good afternoon! I had a much needed day off after a crazy, long work day yesterday! I stayed in bed until noon, ran a few errands and now i'm in bed again (surprise!). I regret nothing. I know it's a beautiful day outside, but sometimes you just need to relax and take it easy, am I wrong?

Wrapping up the day with some delicious coffee (being lazy all day really takes it's toll on ya!) and browsing Pinterest, of course! What do you do on your days off?

Festival weekend





Happy June! This weekend was SUPER eventful! It started off a little lame, because I had some annoying issues with a dental appointment.. After everything was resolved (sort of), I went down to Division Fest a few blocks away from my apartment and shopped some local street venders selling all sorts of things! There was food, drink, music, clothing and TONS of dogs and interesting people running around. I had the opportunity to pick up this beautiful necklace from a local artist before heading back home. I'm in LOVE with this piece! It's not like anything I've ever seen before and I just had to have it!

Since it was such a hot day, I decided to wear a very loose, flowy, and simple outfit. I got this inexpensive pair of wide leg pants ($29.00) at Target last weekend and they are soo comfy and light. Plenty of space to conceal and stash my food baby after a large brunch. Snapped a few photos on the way to the fest!

Decided to take a photo of the outfit off my sweaty self as well. That light on the sidewalk was not the best, but you get the idea!
Wrapping up the weekend with my favorite pistachio doughnut from Stan's down the street. Going to take today to relax before the busy week ahead!
