When spring hits San Francisco, it’s pure magic. It feels like the whole city comes alive on those rare warm/no wind days. The streets are busier, it’s harder to find a seat al fresco, and if you visit a park midday during the week, you’d sense that there were a bevy of Ferris Bueller’s out there. This Wednesday, I was one of them! I couldn’t help but give myself a little spring break from my laptop and wander around town in a few new breezy pieces that arrived…
A friend of mine was in town and the sun was out, so we decided to make a day of celebrating the first official week of spring by spending as much time outside as we could. We popped over to 20th Century Cafe to start the morning with homemade bagels (with cream cheese, avocado, and cucumbers) and coffee and then made our way to Pac Heights for a nice long walk.
I was able to throw on a new soring-y top and paired it with white pants and simple sandals for our sunny afternoon.
We walked down the hill back towards the Marina to check out a new artisan goods shop on Union Street, which if you’re a local, you must check out The Epicurean Trader! As if our day wasn’t picturesque enough with all the mansions we passed, this shop was the icing on the cake to an inspiring day. It’s kind of like a Dean & Deluca, but dare I say (maybe) better? We decided on a few things to bring home to make a cheese plate– warning, it is quite hard to leave there empty handed.
My favorite part of spring is definitely being able to spend more time outside. I love planning fun lunches or a picnic at the park whenever I can. Slipping into a California tuxedo, and sitting down at the park or walking to a friend’s with goodies in tow makes me happy, and is the best way to catch up. This is how I will be spending the coming weekends!
(side note) this photo looks like I am walking away from handing over all-cash for this house like, “you guys, we bought a house!”… but that’s not the case at all, not even close–at least my outfit is cute… 🙂
I hope you have a great weekend!
