Floral Coral

I've been spending so much time in San Francisco lately; even though the semester has been exceptionally grueling this past month, I can't stop myself from going back. These photos were taken last week in the Mission by my friend Ahmed. I spent most of that day in the city wandering around the Fillmore district with a few friends; whether we were skimming the racks of boutiques, chowing down on veggie burgers or chatting over cups of coffee, every moment was sublime. Later in the evening I went to see The Horrors play at Bimbo's, which was absolutely stellar. 
I decided to wear bright, flowy garments that day because I knew it was supposed to be warm and sunny; my thin layers ended up working perfectly, though I did have a few sweaters to protect myself from San Francisco's famed nightly fog. With all of the rain California has been getting lately, I'm taking every chance I can to dress my spring best.
I'm head over heels for this blouse I got from Romwe the other day. It's the perfect combination of sheer, pastel and floral. I also love that the collar is navy; it makes the top so versatile.
I can't remember who it was, but one of my friends shouted a few shameless expletives which resulted in the facial expression you see above. Of course, I rebelled with a sassy comeback of my own. Pretty sure I won. Preeeeetty sure.
Touting around my beloved Dooney & Bourke satchel...definitely the best item I've ever splurged on.

  6. I think this is my all-time favourite of all your lovely outfits!! That blouse is gorgeous and it's perfect with the burgundy skirt. I won a Romwe voucher a few weeks ago and had been saving it for the 'perfect' purchase and finally spent it a few days ago - not knowing you were about to unveil this gem of a blouse :) My credit card is silently cursing you now because I have to have it anyway :)
