(sweater Joie, jeans J Brand, necklace Shay Accessories, beanie Forever 21, bag Alexander Wang)

Driving up the coast of California has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. I highly recommend it to anyone who gets the chance. Never so much have I felt the extreme power of nature and the ocean. I tried to capture it in some of the photos. These massive waves crashing 500 feet in the air off the side of jagged rocks. I think the most amazing thing I saw was this one singular home and lighthouse on the top of a huge piece of earth with one road leading up. I sware I’ve seen something similar in a movie- but never real life.

The second day we spent most of the day driving from Cambria (where we stayed the night in a little bed and breakfast) to San Francisco where we arrived late at night. I don’t know what inspired me to wear bell bottoms but I always like to change things up a bit. These have to be the oldest jeans in my closet… J Brand circa 2006. I struggled a good 5 minutes to squeeze into them.
The sweater I love it’s the perfect mix of cozy and sporty chic. Paired with my bright beanie which I took on and off as the temperatures changed.
Tomorrow it’s San Francisco. So anyone reading from SF send me your suggestions of where I should visit. I’ve only been twice before. :)

    i lvoe how the sweater accents match your beanie! so cute =]

    I just moved to Norcal and exploring SF too. You should definitely check out Haight and Ashbury for vintage stuff (they have wasteland there too), check out Marina for cute boutiques and to hang out with friends during the day/night. my favorite place so far to hang out at night =], fisherman wharf is always good for touristy stuff. oh! and don’t forget North Beach for awesome italian food =] my favorite is Tommaso right now and I hear Sotto Mare has some good food too.

    love this look – the hat is the perfect topper to the look (I have a bright blue Gap beanie which is virtually glued to my head these days…)

    I also have these jeans but sadly that ‘lovestory’ ended last weekend when I dragged them out for a party and I also squeezed into mine on to bend to zip my ankle boot and riiiiiiip so sad RIP lovestory – best jeans ever


    p.s. I visited SF once and the best thing ever was clam chowder in bread bowls at the marina
