After two days of orientation at Berkeley, I was free to spend the rest of the week in San Francisco! This is actually my first time up here, so I was so excited to explore the area. Of course, we had to partake in as many tourist-y activities as possible!

I need to start off by saying that I'm absolutely obsessed with this city for many reasons, but especially because of all the colored garages! As a fashion blogger, I'm always looking for cool backgrounds for my photos. In San Francsico, every single house/apartment/mural is the perfect place to shoot pictures, but I especially loved this black garage, pictured above.
[remember when I told you that I LOVE the color black?]
Don't worry though, I made sure to fit some color in with this super cute red garage door I spotted on Lombard Street.
For those of you who don't know, Lombard street is a super cool street in San Francisco famous for its winding, floral path. The street is absolutely beautiful and overlooks the city below, providing a spectacular view.

As if I hadn't spent enough time gawking at the amazing garages (read: "photo backgrounds") I found at every turn, on our way to Ghiradelli Square, I found the most beautiful ivy wall. I think I've actually seen a picture of this house on tumblr at some point...
Anyway, in this picture, I was standing in front of a 20-foot ivy wall. I was in heaven.
My mom was not. I made her take pictures...the whole day...
Enough about garages. Sorry. Here's a bit about what I'm wearing. I wanted to stay comfortable as always, so I threw on my black t-shirt dress and a vintage Levi's jacket I picked up in Berkeley. I also wore my Toms sunglasses and white converse as usual.

On our way to Ghiradelli Square, we encountered a beautiful park right by the water. Obviously, I became a 5-year-old again and decided to frolic/lay in the grass.
But we eventually made it to Ghiradelli and splurged on desserts despite the fact that it was already 6:30ish by this point. I'm sure eating dessert before dinner every once in a while won't kill you, despite your parents' repeated warnings against doing so since you were a baby.
