An Ode to San Francisco: Ideal Weekend Wear

California Weekend Wear

With this coming weekend being my first full weekend in San Francisco, I find myself feeling completely unprepared clothing wise. Growing up in California I always had a plethora of floral sun dresses and sandals. However after nearly 5 years living on the East Coast, my wardrobe consists mostly of practical jeans and tennis shoes. Above are a few things I hope magically appear in my closet before this weekend: breezy floral sun dresses, pastel bags, punchy sandals and of course the perfect keychain complete with a palm tree and heart, emphasizing my love for the great state of California.

What is your perfect weekend outfit for your area?

Light Colored Denim (Review: Banana Republic Skinny Ankle Jean)

Since we decided a few weeks ago that my boyfriend jeans needed to be retired, I have been craving a light colored pair of jeans for Spring/Summer. Encouraged by the cuffed jeans experience I had with another Banana Republic pair, I scooped these jeans up in a hurry during a recent 40% off sale. Without even trying them on, I figured that with the added stretch, high rise and tapered leg, it couldn’t be so bad. Wrong. I, of course, hastily ripped off the tag after putting these babies on without proper analysis and totally regret it.

For starters: these jeans do weird things to my knees. Maybe it’s that they show through the fabric too much? Have weird fading in that area? I don’t know but I reaaaally don’t like it especially after seeing these photos.

Second thing I hate is that the leg isn’t tapered enough. It is sort of half wide half skinny and is difficult to cuff.

Finally, these jeans have way to much stretch to be flattering. Normally i’m a fan of a good amount of stretch especially on the bottom half for us pears, but these pants felt like leggings and I felt like I was jiggling down the street all day.

Needless to say, these are a “to donate” item. Man, what a waste. Have any of you tried on any BR skinny jeans you like? Please do share!

Cashmere and Condos (or, well, apartments)

This is what I like to call my apartment-hunting-all-day-walking outfit. I wore this during our apartment hunt last weekend and it was the perfect amount of warmth and comfort for the temperamental San Francisco weather. This sweater has proved to be incredibly versatile and goes with absolutely everything. I can’t wait to pair it with printed skirts and pants for cool Spring nights. On another note, I recently scooped up these jeans as my first “designer” pair, and I can’t wait to do a full review for you all.

Also, if you follow me on instagram you know I got these epic sunglasses at an unbelievable deal (we are talking 70% off) and i’m so thrilled with them. Everywhere I go people compliment me. Score!
