SAN FRANCISCO – Photo Diary
A couple of weeks ago, the Creator Deck invited me and my boyfriend to their San Francisco headquarters to show us around. We basically explored the city like two little kiddos and loved every single thing we did. I have to be honest, theres something so special about traveling within the US that gets me every time. Its amusing to compare and find out (by experience) what the cities have in common or why some are so different. Each has its own signature style, type of people, vibe, atmosphere, and San Francisco definitely had its own feeling. I personally felt like I was in a limbo between New York and Los Angeles… but even better because it had the best of each. There was a free spirited vibe merged with that busy rhythm of crowded cities. The best part was the oh-so-popular colored tiny houses next to each other like they were glued together… I have to admit they were truly amazing. I couldn’t stop myself from feeling nostalgic because Full House was literally one of my favorite shows.
Day 1: we checked in at Hotel G, a boutique hotel with the most incredible vintage vibe.
First day was walking and shopping around Union Square and Market Street
Biker jacket and a white shirt is such a classic combo. Although my boyfriend jokes with the fact that I was unconsciously inspired by the Matrix.
Coffee and dinner at Central Kitchen in the mission. You have to go if you visit. The options were infinite and everything made with local ingredients.
The Haight Ashbury, probably my favorite area.
This totally looked like a doll house, and I want to live there.
Food and vintage clothes, what else is new.
They had everything divided by eras, which means best vintage shop ever.
Wearing my favorite burgundy jacket, 3X1 busted knee jeans, River Island top and creepers.
This jacket man.
Held Over was so amazing I couldn’t even finish seeing all their cured collections.
Quick stop at Amoeba, biggest record store I’ve been to date.
Classic San Francisco
We went to the Fishermans Wharf which was so relaxing and exactly what I needed.
More San Fran, everything was uphill or downhill.
Wearing my forever favorite combination: hoodie and a blazer with some ripped jeans by 3×1
America’s oldest chocolate company.
Yes, thats a lady making Mickey Mouse shaped bread, and this seagull wanted to steal our ice creams.
Long night walks around Stockton St.
Covered in a thousand layers because it was actually pretty cold.
We had dinner at 398 Brasserie, the restaurant at our hotel. The food was heavenly and the bar was <3333
We left the city and went to Napa Valley, about an hour away. Thank you Helen for the lovely afternoon!
Felt like a totally different state. Everything was so relaxing and quiet.
We visited several wineries in Napa.
I decided to wear some burgundy moto pants, Shilla white top, Nasty Gal biker jacket and chunky boots.
Local coffee roasters are always better.
This didn’t feel real. Too pretty to be true.
Switched to comfier clothes: AEO blue jeggings, same white top and Cuyana cape which kept me super warm.
Best wine I ever tried. My love for wine has grown exponentially in the past year.
Perfect sunset to end the trip.
