Jet Setter

Shirt: Marc Jacobs // Purse: Louis Vuitton // Shoes: Halogen

The last day of my trip, I spent the morning at Santana Row. This outdoor shopping mall has a very laid back feel to it, with bunches of nice restaurants, bakeries, and of course great stores to shop in! My boyfriend and I had lunch at Left Bank Brasserie. The food was delicious, but my favorite dish had to be the salad with heirloom tomatoes. I normally don't like tomatoes much, but these tomatoes were really sweet and delicious! I really love walking down Santana Row as the scenery is really picturesque with lots of trees lining the streets and apartments above the shops.

To fly home, I threw on my blue Zara blazer. I always seem to get cold on airplanes. Although I know it's not really practical, I try to dress nicely to fly instead of wearing sweat pants and flip flops. I like thinking about old movies and the days when travelling was a special occasion to dress up for. Perhaps it's because i've never been on a flight longer than 5 hours? What do you wear when you travel? Do you like to get dressed up or do you like to dress down and relax?

Sight Seeker

Blouse: Lush // Shorts: Zara Basic // Shoes: Bamboo // Purse: Louis Vuitton

During my week in San Francisco, I did some sightseeing and touristy things. During my visit to China Town, I ate the best egg custard tart I've ever had in my life. Egg custard tarts are my favorite "dim sum" dish, but most places don't make them that well. I really liked walking around China Town and seeing how different the culture was from mainstream San Francisco. Around every corner were musicians playing traditional chinese instruments and groups of people playing Chinese cards and what not.

I've only ever visited the Fisherman's Wharf one other time in my life, a very long time ago. The last time I was there, I ate clam chowder from Boudin, but this time I discovered that the smaller vendors along the pier had better and fresher clam chowder! In the streets there were lots of people painted in metallic paint dancing. I took a picture of one of them above, which I thought was the best one. He really did look like a statue when he stood still!

During the evenings, my boyfriend and I usually visited small cafes and bakeries for desert. The small pastries and cakes above are from Cocola bakery, which is located at Santana Row in San Jose. All of the pastries looked so pretty I had to take pictures!


Legion of Honor

Blazer: Zara // Blouse: Audrey // Jeans: Abercrombie // Shoes: Halogen

Before going back to school, I took a trip to San Jose/San Francisco. I love museums and was so happy that I got to visit the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. I was so surprised at how much the weather fluctuated throughout the day and area up north! On this particular day, it was around 85 degrees in San Jose, but dropped to around 65 degrees when we got to San Francisco! Talk about fickle weather! I guess being from Southern California, I'm not used to extreme temperature changes, as it's pretty much the same all the time.

I really enjoyed looking at all the amazing pieces of art including ones from Monet and Picasso. I posted pictures of my two favorite paintings above as well as pictures of the beautiful architecture of the museum! Tell me, do you like going to museums?
