San Fran Hippie Chic

One of my favorite things about San Francisco is the colorful homes.  I love walking the streets looking at the different color schemes thinking about how SF is one of the few cities that could get away with having a pink home with mint green trim (dream!).  Coming back from my weekend of colorful inspiration, I chose to wear this shirt that reminds me of some of the ornate detailing and bold color schemes that these gorgeous homes have.  I'm also sharing a few photos of the homes in the Haight-Ashbury area that I took on my trip :)  With this top, I chose to black shorts and sky-high wedges.  What do you think of my pairing?








Top: C/O sheinside
Shorts: Gap (Similar)
Jewelry: Bracelets- Marni @H&M; Earrings- Vintage; Hair Comb- Vintage
Bag: Louis Vuitton Sobe Clutch
Shoes: Theyskens' Theory (Similar)

Thank you so much for reading!!

  3. Love those shoes and the daring print! I agree, the homes in SF are so cool- I remember seeing a sky blue house with yellow trim and a salmon colored roof! So awesome.

  100. Omg, I loved walking up and down Haight-Ashbury streets because of those magnificent homes. I alway wonder how I'd display my own house if I had the opportunity to live there, lol, it'd be really crazy. I love those wedges, they're so edgy and unique, not to mention your legs look even more fab in this outfit.

  106. Oh, your wedges! Could they possibly be any more perfect? I think not. I need some ankle-strap shoes badly. I used to have some, but I wore them to death and now they look pretty crappy. Note to self: do not hike in heels. Just kidding, they looked crappy even before I went hiking in them. Anyway... that blouse is amazing, I adore the print! You look adorable, as always.

    May the force be with you.
