We are mid flight on the way to San Francisco for our vacation and I’m so excited to be back. Nala is resting comfortably on Peter’s lap who is also slowly drifting to sleep. I’m listening to SiriusXM (free on Jetblue) and catching up on some emails/work/writing.
San Francisco is such a great city for dogs. Last time we were here (April-ish 2017?), Nala was pretty much allowed everywhere, from restaurants to CVS. We stayed in the Mission District and spent lots of time at Mission Delores Park (pictured below). I’m looking forward to all the amazing coffee shops in San Francisco.
OUR VACATION ITINERARY
This time around we will be starting our visit in Napa Valley/Sonoma County for the weekend. We got an Airbnb house with a bunch of friends and will be touring some vineyards. My mom actually used to live in Sonoma County so I’ve visited the area before, but never really did a formal vineyard tour with lots of wine drinking. I’m super excited for all my wine tasting outfits!!
For the trip, I got an amazing Mitsubishi to drive around during all of our vacation! I can’t wait to try it- I LOVE driving! Fun fact: when I was living on Long Island before moving to the city in 2010, I used to have a Mitsubishi Eclipse. I loooooved the car and was so sad to sell it when I moved.
After our weekend in Napa Valley, I’m planning on showing Peter the redwood forest (which is one of the most serene places I have ever been) and then we will grab dinner in Sausalito; which I have never been to. We will then head down to spend some time in San Francisco for a few days. Peter will be working while in SF and I am looking forward to catching up with some friends there!
I am LOVING THIS TOP! I immediately fell in love with it when I saw it and it’s one of those tops that I can wear over and over again and still not be tired of it. The top totally reminds me of LOVESHACKFANCY – a brand that I have been swooooning over forever. LOVESHACKFANCY is a splurge brand, but THE TOP I am wearing is at a great price point. I randomly stumbled in the MO:VINT store on Bleeker St. in NYC and loved so many pieces. I am currently eyeing THIS TOP and THIS TOP – both under $50!!
These Sam Edelman booties are such staples. I wear them ALL the time. They are perfect for going out during the day or at night! I got them last season and I can’t find the exact boots anywhere online, however I found another AMAZING PAIR that I am currently eyeing (because why not?). They look exactly like the ones I have on. I found other pairs that are similar, but have a LOWER, CHUNKIER HEEL and a pair that has a POINTY TOE WITH A SKINNY HEEL.
These HIGH WAIST BLACK JEANS are my new staple for the Fall. I recently became so frustrated with my jeans collection and I really couldn’t tell why. I then realized it was because I didn’t really have that many high waist jeans. SO I changed over mostly all my jeans with high waist jeans. I got a ton of pairs from THIS CLASSIC SHOP + THIS NEWLY DISCOVERED SHOP.
