Bay watch: weekend wardrobe

I’m an opposite person, I love to dress up on weekends because I can be so casual on the weekdays sometimes. When I’m casual on the weekends, I feel like I’m on an alternate universe (which I’m realizing is called Earth, and I’M the alien!) My weekends have been full of exploring the Bay (farmers markets! craft shows! ice cream!) and visiting museums in between chilling at the park.

I was pretty bummed coming back from vacation because NYC seemed so alive. San Francisco has been weird lately in case you haven’t heard mentions of skyrocketing rents and the social issues that arise from it (like homelessness and drug use.) I feel very lucky and privileged to enjoy the things I get, I try to enjoy every minute of my life with gratitude! Well, that conversation took an odd turn. And so, here is my bizarro outfit where I fit in with everyone else! I’m loving my new little espadrilles, they walked me all over NYC too! Super comfy. So while this isn’t a typical outfit for me, I was running around all over the city and being casual was essential for the long trek I was on.

Oscar de la Renta at the DeYoung

I’m so lucky to be a member of an amazing organization that brings so much beautiful fashion to San Francisco! If you’re in town, go see the Oscar de la Renta exhibit running through the end of May 2016. I’m feeling so grateful they let me take photos, that I couldn’t wait to share them with you all. Enjoy here or click on any of the images to head on over to my Flickr account to see more.

Update to shopping in San Francisco

As a blogger, it’s always a good idea to periodically check your pages and make sure everything is updated and correct. I had recently  redone and updated my Blog Roll, then updated the Made in USA list – now the last component was updating my Shopping in San Francisco Map. I took a peek at it a few days ago and was kind of flabbergasted at how many SF shops had closed! Yikes, I apologize.

So I went through the map and got rid of a bunch of old places and added SO many new ones. San Francisco is an innovative fashion capital and many brands have headquarters here. Take a look around and bookmark it for when you want to visit or know someone who is coming and would like to explore more shopping!

This post will eventually get pushed down, but it will always be pinned as a page up top for me! (see SHOP SF above)

West Coast Craft winter 2015

These holidays are really gearing up, and it’s the perfect time to attend a craft fair again! It really lends a hand with inspiration for upcoming trends, potential gifts, but also gaining hope to create/improve my own crafts. And the West Coast Craft show really cannot be beat for this – showcasing artisans from the West Coast really gives this show a local flare that sets it apart from other craft fairs.

This isn’t my first time at the rodeo, follow this category HERE to see the other times I have gone!

Loved the pocked ceramics! It reminded me of lava

There were SO many interesting textile manufacturers this time, it was interesting to see people creating fabrics again! These were by Dym.

This booth was selling rugs and throws made in a traditional Mexican style by actual Mexican artisans!

Whereas this booth had some awesome textured woven pieces. I LOVED that little watermelon purse. She also had these awesome cowhide sandals I’m still lusting over (too bad we get very little sandal weather in SF)

Local SF favorites, Half Hitch Goods and their little wagon always seem to make a nice appearance too
