Day Off in the City
I had an unexpected day off of work this past Monday, so I seized the opportunity to head up to the city and spend the day with my favorite SF photographer and shopping partner-in-crime Vero. We hit the shops of Union Square and finished off our day with a late lunch at Hakkasan. I absolutely love the city and Mr. J and I try to make it up whenever we have a free weekend. This was the first time I was able to enjoy the city on a week day without the usual weekend crowds. All in all, it was the perfect day off despite the pouring rain. Fortunately, we were able to snap a few outfit pics before the torrential downpour.
This look was thrown together in a hurry. I originally wanted to look fabulous for my big city outing but the cleaning ladies came 3 hours early, while I was still in the shower! Knowing there was rain in the forecast and that the city is always 5-10 degrees colder than the peninsula, I grabbed the first items in my pile of jeans and sweaters, threw them on, and scrambled out the door. The outfit kept me warm and dry, and was easy to slip on and off - essential for my many trips to the fitting rooms. And I fell in love with my bag even more - its crossbody feature gave me two free hands to browse the racks and beautiful shoe displays.
