Today felt like spring. It wasn’t hot and it wasn’t cold, but the sun was FINALLY shining! It’s about time I got to wear this new asymmetrical tissue skirt — the darn thing has been teasing me from my closet for weeks.

Figured I’d take in some UV rays after work and meet Blake by his office downtown. Snapped these photos (after a quick H&M trip) at a rooftop “park” just off Union Square. You’d never know it’s there…this city is full of secrets, and it’s days like today that make me fall in love with it all over again. <3

Minus the rain, yesterday was one of those perfect San Francisco days. Woke up early, grabbed breakfast at La Boulange, followed by downtown shopping, afternoon lounging, and drinks with friends.

Can you tell I’m itching for spring? I’ve never worn this much color in my life! Always fun to try new things, though…show a little personality. That’s what I like best about clothes. Shallow as it may sound, I think you can actually learn a lot about a person based on what they’re wearing.

San Francisco is in limbo — darn this bipolar weather! Sure, there’s an occasional blip of sunshine, but for the most part unending rain = frumpy steez. What can I say?

Less whining more wineing… today was actually really beautiful. I even got to take my new ASOS platforms & LF shirt-dress out for a whirl!

I’m just so ready for spring and craving a hot hot summer. Or a tropical vacation! What about you?

Last week I had a great time at the Banana Republic After 5 event — thanks big time to everyone who stopped by. It was so much fun shopping, chatting, and sipping sangria with y’all!

OK so, this is the coziest sweater in the world…it feels like a cotton ball and I pretty much want to live in it. I have never been much of a pastel wearer, but this simple outfit made me feel minty fresh and springlike. :)

These shorts from LF are so perfectly destroyed — I’m glad we finally had a warm day this weekend so I was able to wear them! Kept it simple for brunch and mimosas with friends, and then a friendly dude let us borrow his bike to snap a few shots. :)

Today we’re embracing the rain with movies, Thai food, and cat naps on the couch.

Blake and I went out for sushi tonight, and this is what I wore. I love mid-week date nights more than anything! Not only did we have a delicious dinner, but now I have a new favorite drink consisting of sake, lemon juice, and fresh ginger — hello, spring! I’m going to attempt my own version at home this weekend, and if it’s anywhere near as good as the restaurant’s, I shall be pleased.

Been trying to infuse more color into my wardrobe, but cold weather is making it difficult as most of my winter clothes are neutral. Except for this red faux fur jacket, of course! Snagged it from Nordstrom Rack a while back – pretty weird, right? :)
