Outfit Shots from San Francisco Travel Diary

I've been told that the weather in San Francisco is anything but commendable, windy, chilly, and very uncalifornia like. I have to say SF really outdid itself the extended weekend we visited because we experienced none of that. Pure sunshine and warm breezy weather for us :-)

I'm doing a seperate post just for outfits cause I had a lot of fun packing for this trip! As usual you'll see a lot of color and recently I've been lusting over prints. So lots of those! 

I love this moment!

Lemon on My Mind

Sadly all things sunny are starting to fade with the end of the summer, I have been obsessed with all things flavored lemon! Lemon bars, lemon ices, lemon fashion :-), lemon scents! It's a fresh twist especially for desserts that makes tasty treats not unbearably sweet! This obsession is definitely reminiscent of my temporary love with grapefruit . . .


Love love Lily!!
