I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that San Francisco is an expensive city. Sure, rent is high, but we are spending so much (so much) less on our cars that it kind of evens out. What is affecting our budget, however, is the amazing food and easy access to bars, restaurants, and shops. So, my friends, I am taking a shopping hiatus.
When we first moved there were the inevitable Target runs, but there were also necessary clothing purchases for me. I quickly realized I needed more shoes I can walk in (it's a hilly city, after all), more cropped pants (to go with said shoes, which are typically booties or mules), and light jackets (to ward off Karl the Fog). Now that I feel like I have the essentials, it's time to take a shopping break. But that doesn't mean I can't share my wishlist with you, right?
Clare Vivier Flat Clutch in Russet with Black Mini Spots I spotted this at a boutique in Hayes Valley and have been thinking of it ever since.
Dry Bar Dry Shampoo For second-day hair.
Madewell Silk Fortune Top in Wet Boulder Such an effortless short for work and weekends.
Gap Quilted Vest in Acorn I know it's still summer, but it doesn't feel like it right now!
Madewell Transport Tote in English Saddle I love my structured black Kate Spade work tote but would love to alternate it with this one.
Nike Air Max Thea My running shoes need replacing and I'd like to get a vintage-looking black pair like these.
