baker beach

baker beach

This is what a beach in San Francisco looks like, where the closer you get to the coast the more foggy and freezing cold it gets. We thought it would be cute but didn't expect this weather in Juky, Still a nice date nevertheless. Brenty made custom sandwiches (mine had smoked salmon, havarti, avocado, and other goodies) and we tried our best to enjoy the scenery while we froze our asses off. The journey to and from there on public transportation was probably twice as long.

(pssssst, a couple random notes: my nails are Chanel Lilac Sky, boater hat is from Forever 21, and the sunglasses are those same vintage ones that I always wear... cheers!)

I also got new shoes last weekend. Almost bought them on Bluefly the day before for much more but got insanely lucky at the Barneys sale in San Francisco with the LAST ONE in my size. Maybe it was meant to be, as Lulu pointed out. It felt really nice to finally get the shoes that I'd been wanting for so long with money that I made on my own and did a really good job of saving instead of spending it on random clothes. Feels good man.

Also, my team is in the final! That damn octopus, he was actually right. Thanks to everyone who stuck around for my tweets and obsession, hehe. I never lost hope and it feels rewarding to know that they finally made it. Germany played amazingly throughout the tournament and I was sad to see them go. I'm nervous about Sunday, let's hope I don't have a panic attack like I did during the Paraguay game...

Nice shoes, & the shoes are gorgeous!

jamie-lee said...

That's such a sweet idea - I've had the same thing happen when attempting to go to the beach although it's really only ever 5-10 minutes travel where I live.

I have that nail polish and love it, it is one of my faves - and re: the Miu Mius, you're making me regret my decision from Bluefly - I tossed between getting those or the dark brown leather, and got the dark brown on the assumption I would get the suede JC's.. which I have now opted not to! Whoopsies.

I remember how amazed I was the first time I travelled up the West Coast to San Francisco. Living in France I had always pictures California the L.A. way, sun, palmetos and over tanned California Girls. But there is something much more moving about California. San Francisco and its foggy weather to start with. And Big Sur... Thanks for reminding me of it :)

Myriam said...

i can understand you...two weeks ago it was unexpectedly cold here. however your pics are stunning! i love the first one (and your accessories are to die for!!!)

Anthea said...

Great pics! Adore those shoes. Congrats on having Spain in the final! I live the host country, South Africa and most of my friends are supporting Spain. I was lucky enough to watch the Portugual vs Korea DPR game, so I completely understand your world cup obsession.

oh gosh those shoes are cute. xx

Liss said...

It's funny you know about the octopus. I never knew he was that famous (actually I first heard about him on tuesday). Congrats! Though I'm sad that Germany lost - I would have loved to see them play (well, win!) against the Netherlands.

The shoes are amazing! Can I ask you how much they cost you?

Sundari said...

I was one of those that was wondering what all the fuss was about with the world cup but got really into it. Unfortunately on my side of the world it was really late (or early) for most of the games so could only watch a few. Germany has been playing tremendously well, I can just imagine how scary it would be to play them!

eleanor said...

Oh my goodness. Those shoes are incredible! I love shopping for myself after working hard and saving money. After 6 months of saving last year I went NUTS when I went to Sydney in January.

The photos of you with your hair blowing are gorgeous!

Velvet said...

I love the first photo... mmm San Francisco.

Amazing shoes, you are a lucky girl finding the last ones hehe.

Silkybow said...

The beach loooks really nice and cold!
I love the miu miu clogs and your boater hat (:

Hannah said...

Haha I only found about that octopus yesterday - how odd!
Also, smoked salmon + avacado = win!

also, great steal on the clogs! want shoes like those, but can't find a similar style over here. i'd buy online, but international shipping sucks sometimes. :( i love how thick the heels are. actually looks super comfortable to walk around in!

Good luck to Spain. And I love your photos and the clogs :)

Lol at the commentor who said that the coldest winter he faced was a summer in Frisco. So true!

Eva said...

What a nice post. I love the "summery" mood of the photos, even if it's not the most summery weather in SanFran.

Those miu mius are my favorite- they'll be classic for a while.

Oh wow, this first picture of the beach looks like it was taken in a dreamland. Well, not a candycotton butterflies dreamland but in one like from these independent movies, foggy and dull, but still beautiful.

Haha it's so funny how all the world knows our German octopus oracle! I'd never thought an octopus could get this famous :)

Lovely photos. I always wonder what it would be like with that kind of cold in the beach. Beaches here in the Philippines are just too darn hot. Loving the sandwiches. I'm happy for you and Brent. I will miss having dates with my boyfriend. :[ Mine died last June 13th. Stay in love!

And, yeah! Hurray for Spain!

Dana said...

You must be so excited that Spain won yesterday!! Yay!!
On a different note, I love the shoes and the color is divine. Great find and I guess it paid off not buying them from Bluefly.
Thanks,
Dana

I shouldn't have dragged down to see the other pictures. Now I'm craving for a sandwich at 3:30 in the morning.
