So tomorrow I’ll be on my way to San Francisco for the very first time and I really can’t wait! I’ll be visiting a good friend of mine—I like to refer to her and her husband as a “San Fran Power Couple.” After all, they both work in tech and live in The Mission, an area I’ve been told is pretty hip. It’s always hard packing for a place you’ve never been too, but I figured I’d get some California kudos for these amazing sneakers I picked up in Austin. They’re handmade by artisans in Peru and the proceeds benefit a number of charities, including tree-planting to fight deforestation. Very San Fran-friendly, I’d say! I thought I’d pair that with some fun gold jewelry and my favorite beauty products of the moment—pale yellow nail polish and Tom Ford Violet Fatale. It’s amazing as a lip stain—just remove the top layer with a tissue and put on some Fresh Sugar lip balm on top! For our more dressy occasions (which will include a lovely afternoon tea at Palace and dinner at Bar Tartine!), I borrowed this Sea top from Renee. It has a lace back and is slightly cropped, so I think I’ll manage to be cool enough in it. Well, that’s a good start for packing I’d say… next, a denim vest and slouchy tee perhaps?

Renee and I are now obsessed with Carl Schurz Park. It’s just gorgeous, especially when it’s a Saturday with the best weather possible—70 degrees and sunny. I threw on a tank top and my favorite boyfriend jeans for the occasion. To dress them up a bit, I added my Reed Krakoff sandals that I bought in Vegas way back when… they were a drunk shopping find (the best kind of find!). It’s amazing how you can pick up an accessory from years ago and find a new way to wear it—in this case, casual with jeans. In it’s former life, it had been paired only with dresses and sleek black ensembles. Fancy no more, but still highly functional! Reed Krakoff shoes in general are pretty comfortable, and I have to say that these are impressively easy to walk in considering the heel height. All hail drunk shopping!
Markus Lupfer Pigeon Love Elizabeth Dress $780
Inspired by beach motifs, this gorgeous (and no doubt flattering!) dress is perfect for fall. We always love a compact mini dress, and the print on this one really makes it stand out. We’d love to pair this with a leather jacket and booties as the weather cools down—very British model off duty! MARKUS LUPFER FTW.

I’ve lived on the UES for several year now, but only recently discovered Carl Schurz Park. It’s in the 80s by East End and is absolutely gorgeous—serene views overlooking the water, beautiful landscaping, and lots of fun events like free movie screenings in the summer and tree lighting ceremonies in the winter. It’s a great place to get away from the crowds in Central Park and just enjoy a peaceful afternoon of picnicking, reading, and sunbathing. I felt right at home exploring the park in my birks!
Proenza Schouler Cropped Jacquard Top $850
We’ve both been on the hunt for the perfect crop top, and this Proenza Schouler number is pretty much straight out of our dreams. It’s that great longish crop length to wear with both skinny jeans (when you want show a tiny bit of skin) and full skirts (when you don’t), and the print is out of control amazing. This is definitely on our wish lists for fall!
