Boutique store shopping in San Francisco

 

I gave myself a break during the week to go hangout with my bff Jessie. She took me to so many amazing places and one of them being the mission street. I ran into a store called Reformation, which I've been wanting to visit for the longest time. I didn't even realize that I was in their store until I saw the tags on their clothes. I tried on a silk top that I had in my online shopping cart and oh. my. god. their fitting room was next level. You can adjust the lighting from cool to warm to sexy. And they even have a phone charging station in there XD

I've been eyeing on this silk top and I was very hesitant on which size to go for. I tried on a XS and I thought they could fit better. I wasn't so sure about it and if I'm paying $80 for a top I at least want it to fit super nicely :/

(I have this weird feeling that I might go back for this b/c it's so friking cute!)

Reformation's interior design from furniture choices to color theme of each rack - everything is so on point! Absolutely one of my best experiences at a clothing store. 

My outfit deets for the day:

ZARA top (similar)

Vintage jeans from my bff

Alexander Wang Amelia sandals

H&M shoulder bag 

Ray ban shades

 

Floral elements are so in this summer and I definitely recommend to try and have some fun with them. They can bring so much energy to your outfit as long as you don't go all out and wear flowers from head to toe. Single floral pieces work a great summer outfit when you style them with simple monotone bottoms/tops. I styled this off-shoulder asymmetrical top with a grey pair of jeans and kept everything relatively simple. I accessorized with gold earrings and black suede purse. There was nothing too catchy but the floral top in this outfit.

My bff also took me to this vintage shop called After Life. It was LITERALLY heaven on earth. I literally moved around within 4 ft. and my hands were full. No joke. Their denim collection was crazy and even crazier they have my size! Usually most of the vintage boutiques were only left with larger sizes. These jeans were remade so uniquely. I love and wanted to get all of them.

But most importantly...

LOOK WHAT I FOUND

Yes I found a vintage GUCCI freaking sweatshirt 

I love it so much that I even wore to my night out at a bar (it was cold and windy af in SF at night). I'm still in awe that I was able to find this. By the way, the red sandals I was wearing in the picture down below was also from a thrift store I visited later that day. It was $7 and I seriously thought that they looked like Celine. So. Very. Worth. It. 

 

Day trip to South Yuba River

 

My friends and I decided to spend Memorial Day somewhere private and close to nature. We couldn't handle the wind on the beaches around the Bay or the winding road to Tahoe, so we ended up going to Crossing 49 near the South Yuba River (insert a lot of research here).

Highway 49 Crossing, South Yuba River State Park 

 

 

When I was reading about this place on google, supposedly, people can sun bath on the rocks and swim right underneath the bridge, like in the pictures down below.

When we got there, it looked more like this:

The staff there told us due to the glacier melting and the rain this year, the current is too dangerous to even get close to. Bummer! 

Nevertheless, it was still a magical experience just being able to watch and listen to the river running. We hiked alongside the river and eventually we were taken to a hidden beach. Some giant rocks and widened riverbank slowed down the river so we were able to dip our feet and feel the clear icy water. And of course I had to ask/force my boyfriend to take some pictures for me in my new favorite bikinis ( s/o to Sommer Swim for making the best quality, flattering bikinis).

I had some fun with the edits and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them :)
