The other day I spent a really nice afternoon exploring a bit of San Francisco (I guess they're calling it Nopa these days?)

I have to be honest, I haven't really done too much of this since I've been here and I really lucked out with a sunny and clear afternoon - it was just WINDY! We went to a pretty shop (that I'll post about later tonight) and then found our way to this crazy little dog park and then whaddya know - the Painted Ladies! Yessss Full House dreams coming into reality!!

Here are two little photos from our park adventures.. Sadly, no tourist pics in front of the painted ladies - we tried ... but the sun wasn't co-operating!

So interesting that you are starting to explore your new neighbourhood. I love your green jumper and the lacey collar shirt!

SF is the best!...even if it is a little windy sometimes. :)

I LOVE that blouse, it is so amazing! I adore San Francisco, especially Alamo Square. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in the Chateau Tivoli there... it was wonderful.

I live a block away from where that photo was taken! Everyone who comes to visit me gets to go admire the Full House houses and the lovely view from the top of the park.

If you didn't go already, you should visit The Other Shop, on Divisadero. It's one of my favorite vintage housewares shops in the city. They have clothes, too.

Mirash said...

Beautiful sights! I like the dress and blouse combination, really smart!

lauren winter said...

lovely outfit, lovely pictures - especially the last! glad your full house dreams are seeing fruition :)

Lexie said...

that last photo is so awesome!

Roxanne Rosensteel said...

Your outfit is just perfect. You look so chic and beautiful. And San Francisco is one of my favorite cities.

Polly Farthing said...

I absolutely love what you're wearing. Where did you find those pieces? Pinafore style dresses are so fantastic for Autumn - and that blouse - perfect together!

Becca Jane said...

that dress and blouse make up the perfect outfit! so feminine and pretty!

goldenmeans said...

Yay, I'm glad you are exploring/liking the city :) I always accidentally stumble upon the Painted Ladies too every time I desperately try to find parking somewhere for something on Divisadero.

Oh, and that ruffle-front-bid on your blouse is too too cute.

Le Tasché said...

This blouse is really a dream!!!

DalenaVintage said...

Michaela Dawn said...

Heavens, I have a very good book on the painted ladies, as I so adore architecture! It would be such a treat to see some photos of them other than in a publication, ah, you are lucky indeed!

Hannah said...

This outfit is perfect beyond words! The colours, that collar.. you look amazing!
