Pumpkins, Fog, and Planes: My Weekend in Instagram

The last three days in San Francisco were utter, joyful madness. Dozens of events happen every month in San Francisco, which is how my husband and I survived our both-working-part-time-minimum-wage-jobs time here without bitterness. There’s always something happening, and often times it’s free.

Occasionally, everything happens at the same time.

In 60 hours, I ate lunch with a friend in Union Square, was awed by Florence + The Machine in concert, watched the Blue Angels zoom overhead for Fleet Week, crashed a Standford alum rooftop party, cheered at the America’s Cup sailing races, and met a fellow SF fashion blogger for breakfast. Even with all that, I missed chances to hippie out at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and explore the wonder of Castro Street fair. When people ask me why I live in San Francisco (“I hear it’s just SO expensive!”), I will direct them to this paragraph.

I’ll show you more details about what I wore later on this week (could I ever resist?), but for now, here’s where I went.

An impressive display of pumpkins outside of Whole Foods

The new-ish Forever 21 on Stockton is amazing and unrecognizable from its chaotic Powell Street counterpart.

What I looked at while I ate lunch with a friend at Baladie Cafe on Pine & Kearny. San Francisco architecture never gets old.

I love watching the fog roll in from the west.

Absolutely amazing show.

Perfect day to watch military planes zoom overhead and peer down onto the people-watching parade below.

I hope that your Monday is off to a good start! Any stories from the weekend?

    • I’m excited to get photos from our brunch up soon! My username on Instagram is sanfranista, the same as on Pinterest. I just started following you today, btw 🙂

  1. I’m excited to check out the stock at Forever 21, but I admit that most of the time, I’ll spend an hour looking at accessories and come out with nothing because there’s too many choices! I start second-guessing my decisions, which is silly since really, I can probably just afford to buy BOTH pairs of $6 earrings. 🙂

    • I do the same thing! There’s just so much that it overwhelms me. That’s why I’m a fan of the store on Stockton- they have less product than the Powell location, but it’s much better organized and curated. We should go soon 🙂

      • Yes we should! I need a style expert to coach me through what’s appropriate for a girl who’s nearly 30… which might not be much at Forever 21 🙂

        Also, I would love your advice on tights & stockings.

Come on, tell me!
