SF in less than a day

Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Kind of a long post. You've been warned! Carry on.

My family came to visit us a couple weekends ago to meet Grey for the first time. I think they like him!! It was also their first time in northern California so we had to take them to San Francisco for a quick day trip. We basically drove to all the major touristy stops, hopped out, took pics, and hopped back in the car. Everything takes five times longer to do with a baby. At least. Road trips included.

In my left hand: BBQ pork bun from Chinatown that I'd really love five of right now. Also, a pooch that has made its permanent residence. I surrender. For now.
leopard print scarf via ebay - $8 (similar) | thrifted American Eagle denim jacket - $5 (similar) | Max and Chloe initial necklace - c/o | Shade Clothing maternity t-shirt - $8 | skinnied Levi's jeans - $70 | Forever 21 sneakers - $10 (similar) | Total = $101

But onto the most important part about this post.. my outfit!!!! Since we'd be in the car basically all of the day, I wanted to be comfy but cute...comfy cute. I chose a loose t-shirt (maternity FTW), skinny jeans (pre-preg!!! whatwhat!!!!), and sneakers.

I've mentioned before how I don't have any fashion sneakers or even know how to style them. Well, I was browsing Forever 21 one night and considering how everything is always on sale there, it's impossible + infinity to NOT buy something from that gigantic fastfash store and I happened upon these sneakers for $10 thinking, "Why not?" I mean, they were cute, cheap, and had gold cap toes! I also had a bad shopping itch and I was afraid I'd buy something I'd regret later like a purple muumuu. And tomorrow some fashion blogger will probably make muumuus like really good and I'll be eating my words. Naturally.

During the day, Grey did what he did best and spit up and pooped 29,874x on his clothes and his back up clothes so we made a quick detour to H&M to see if we can find anything so as not to run around SF with a naked baby. Hiding in the corner of H&M kids, I ran into Tiffany and Lizzie!! I was dumbfounded. Like it took me a minute or two for it to register that I wasn't sitting in front of a computer looking at their blogs. It was SO FUN to see them and I sense many SF trips in the future.

Right before Oli kept grabbing at my boobs. Handsy, that one! (and ADORABLE.)

  2. I think you are looking great post preg. Did Chase gain any weight doing the pregnancy. Doesn't look like it. My husband gained about the same amount of weight that I did.

  3. Loving this outfit! Especially those shoes! Definitely worth the $10!


  4. San Francisco is such a great place! Looks like you have a short but fun and memorable trip. :)

    And I don't care if anyone says that muumuus are in fashion - I don't think I'd ever wear one (in public). ;)

  5. I can't believe how fast you took off your pregnancy weight! Great job, I know how hard it can be to lose weight! I'm still trying to lose some weight (not from pregnancy).
    Your outfit is adorable-as always! Oh MAN! You should NOT have mentioned the F21 sale!!! Bad, bad, bad influence, Elaine! LOL! =)

  6. I guess you have now learned, you need backup clothes x3! But it seems the trip to H&M was well worth it.

  7. You look GORG!! And Grey is doing his "dooty" as a baby if he's pooping everywhere. Wish you were still down here, glad you're flourishing in Sac, though! xo, shelia
