If anyone needed a clearer example of how bipolar the weather is here in San Francisco, just look at my blog. A couple posts ago I was baring my legs at the beginning of the month then as the weeks progressed the weather got worse with a few nice days here and there. It's kind of hard to believe that in my last post less than a week ago I was wearing a heavy coat and oversized scarf when I post pictures from the beach like these! I had been wearing a different outfit earlier during a job interview and was sweating profusely in pants and a trench by the time I met up with Megan to enjoy the weather at the beach. I know 75 degrees isn't exactly burning hot (especially compared to the weather in LA, where I hear it almost reached 90) but here that's totally acceptable as beach weather. For further proof, refer to this post from last summer when Brent and I tried to have a picnic in this same location. Thanks, San Francisco!
There were people around us in bikinis and beach wear but I'm not really into that so I just wore a simple dress and threw on an H&M cardigan when it was finally chilly around 7. Can you guess where we went to pick up food for a beach picnic? Look, I'm all for eating at amazing restaurants around the city (last night Brent and I went to Frances for our two year anniversary, totally deserved their Michelin star!) but sometimes you just really want Taco Bell. How can you go wrong at a place with a 99 cent burrito that has Fritos in it and has Mountain Dew as a fountain option? Seriously, you guys.
And just for a little added bonus, here's a quick peek inside my bag. My red Millimeter Milligram is from Rare Device (they no longer stock it unfortunately), mini campus notebook is from a store in Japantown, make up bag is Fog Linen from Atomic Garden in Oakland, and I'm sure I don't have to list where everything else is from... one of these days I'll try to empty it out and show everything neatly organized.
Still here in Madrid... after my shooting for Vogue I attended with Miranda the launch of Mentes en Shock produced by FOX. I´ve been featured on Elle too. Big thanks to super Txema! Tomorrow I won´t miss the Loewe show..im pretty excited for this up coming event- After that i´ll get back home and I promise a big post-reward!!!
I´m wearing jumper and skirt by Mango and a vintage shoulder bag. All my jewels are by Monica Vinader.

When Billy from Rise of Intelligentsia introduced me to the project, I totally fell in love.. Not only with the whole idea behind the brand, but the SHOES.. would you have a look at those bad girls! I also watched the video about 1000 times. I sh*t you not!
Pink is indeed no doubt a feminine color and oftentimes when used in an interior it either looks too childlike or Barbie-like. However, this Madrid house designed by Luis Puerta begs to differ. The pink mixed with neutral hues and pops of turquoise seem to create a calm and sophisticated living space.
H&M coat, H&M scarf, Citizens of Humanity jeggings, vintage lace up boots
It was super chilly in SF yesterday so I pulled out this heavy coat from H&M that I've had for years. I haven't bought any new outerwear in a really long time (not including the A.P.C. trench) and it's nice to have these pieces which have served me well for the past few years. I think I picked up this oversized scarf around the same time; it's super ratty and old but I wear it to death anyway. I met up with Lulu for lunch (at our favorite local Chinese restaurant in the city, HAHAHAH) then we headed over to the Mission to meet with Ken from HIMYS. Luckily it didn't rain until they were finished with the shoot. Can't wait to see the pictures! I didn't have to pose (thankfully) this time around since it was Lulu's turn, maybe next time.
Okay, time to finish watching the USA vs Argentina match. GO USA!
