I found myself this little spot in Golden Gate Park that is near to some of the most beautiful things (like the Conservatory of Flowers) but avoiding the large amount of tourists and sometimes scary drum circles that envelope the place at times. The park has so many nooks and crannies I’m still eager to explore. It is definitely one of the most magical places in all of San Francisco.

Never though I’d also be wearing part of a sweater set I recently thrifted. But this practically new cashmere sweater was too soft to pass on. The pants were also the only part of the recent Zara sale I got, I was underwhelmed by the whole thing.

I actually can’t wait to style it with some skirts soon.

On an unrelated note, I’ve been at odds with the condition of my hair. And as you may see in this photo, it’s much more wavy than I usually leave it. I’m going to be trying this method out for a while to see if it gives me back the curl on all my hair. Having curly hair on the underside but sort of in between wavy/straight hair on top has been driving me crazy long enough and maybe not using shampoo for a while will help the real curls come out. This is my last resort before I get a real haircut.

      But I’m so ready to chop it all off now, it’s not doing anything for me anymore! In fact I was playing with the idea of having it short and getting extensions when I felt like having long hair because you’re so limited with long hair!! Let me know if you swing by, I’d love to show you around some of my favorite spots!

    I am literally so clueless when it comes to Golden Gate Park. I don’t know where the best sunning spots are, much less how to avoid the drum circles. We should have a GG park blogger meetup soon (so you can all show me where the eff to go).

    And your outfit in these pics is totally channeling silver screen goddess from the 50’s picnicking on the weekend. Yeah, all of that.

      I need to figure out if they’ll let me take outfit photos inside one day, the place is so tropical and gorgeous!

  • Man, love those green pants! Looks so lovely in this shoot too with all the trees and sunlight around you. Seriously this shoot makes you glow, but it’s not like you don’t in person already. πŸ™‚ Have a happy weekend, Eli!Β
