Music in the Park

       Amazing weekend spent at Golden Gate Park watching the best of the best perform at Outside Lands. Saw some of my favorites (Kings of Leon, Phoenix, The Strokes) and discovered some new acts that were absolutely incredible (Electric Six, The Temper Trap). I wish I had taken more pictures of the people there that had their festival style down to a T and others that didn't. Instead I became a little too engrossed with the music and making sure that I saw everyone I wanted between all 4 stages. Here's a quick recap...

Yes, Please

I want it all...




     Some of my favs from Leyendecker's Fall 2010 line.  The collection is imaginative while still being classic. That's hard to do.  I think I need some sequin leggings, like yesterday. I also love how they took the ever popular braid trend and used them in a WHOLE new way. 

See the rest of the collection here.

Get On Your Boots

       I believe there are certain things that one should invest in. These things can be different for everyone depending on their lifestyle. The two things I invest in are jeans (I wear them everyday) and boots. A good pair of boots will last you years! My first pair I ever bought at J. Crew 5 years ago are still in great condition. They have that great broken-in look and are still comfortable to this day. I started with one pair of boots, and got another the year after. Now, I buy at least 2 a year. It sounds like a lot, but I live in boots in the fall and winter. Living in San Francisco, I am able to wear boots about 9 months out of the year and not look ridiculous. 
       Thankfully this year there are so many boot options to chose from. I will have quite a time trying to decide which ones to invest in this year. Here are some of my favorites of the season so far...

Frye Riding Boots $458

Jefferey Campbell Strap Bootie $230

Joe's Jeans Over the Knee Boot $350

Jeffery Campbell Wedge Booties $200

Marc By Marc Jacobs Back Zip Boot $545

Pour La Victoire Lace Up Wedge $310

J.Crew Sutton Tall Leather Boots $298

Song of the Week

        The new album by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals has been on repeat; not just on my stereo, but in my head. The one song that I continue to play over and over again is 'Medicine'. They did a great live version on the Jimmy Kimmel Show a few weeks ago. See if you can get it out of your head. Enjoy :)

Wish List

       Now that stores are starting to see fall merchandise trickle in, I have started compiling my fall wish list. It also helps that it's August in San Francisco, meaning that it's perfect weather to start wearing all the fall goodies- which makes me VERY happy :) Now, I'm not a fan of online shopping, but I am an avid online browser. I like to find things I love online and then hunt them down at a store. Here are a few items I've found recently that are on my 'do I really need this?' wish list...

I've wanted a cape, for like, ever. 
We'll see if I bring one home this year.

Love the tortoise band.
Not something you see very often.

Not a fan of cargo pants 
(cuz you know, the added bulk)
but I'm intrigued by the skinny version. 

Umm, A-M- AZING!

Really want to rock some shearling this year.
The hood makes it practical. Love it!

Little adoration when you have
a bad hair day. Would wear this often. 

The Boxford. (Did I just invent a new word?)
The boot-oxford hybrid- in a wedge. 
Need I say more?

Wool/ Cashmere Cape - Hanii Y                 $685
