sf weekend #1

A day at the newly renovated Academy of Science Museum in San Francisco called for no more than a warm outfit to pull me through two hours of waiting in line in the freezing (although clear) weather. My sister, my mom and I are spending a weekend in San Francisco as a family acting as tourists. Nicole and I discovered something we now call "BikeWatch" as she rates hot dads racing by on their "fixies" and me scoffing every time. I did more of a clothes watch and stared at urban wear such as the new trends of shin-high boots (my favorite spotted were chestnut leather with tassels on each out side, I should have snapped a photo) We also played the ABC game naming bands, then movies, and eventually moving on to high difficulty naming TV shows. Guaranteed good time. 

blouse: target (just bought on sale $5)
navy teared jacket: target
black overcoat: old navy
black jeans: levi's
navy boots: vintage, thrifted
belt: thrifted
black fox scarf: urban

I must admit this outfit (as do most of the rest of my clothes) are acquired through my sister's hand-me-downs. I require myself to wear new clothes immediately to prove myself they are wearable. Plus, for some reason, I always believe clothes that I acquire along the same time period always seem to go together best. The tricky thing is to find other ways to wear new clothes with old clothes, don't you think?
Well, this blog- still has lots of room for improvement, habit and routine. Give me time. I learned in my journalism class that you should start posting your material on the internet even when you are still embarrassed by it and continuously improve it. Here goes.
