Traveling to: San Francisco

Around Valentine's Day every year my husband and I take a trip to Las Vegas, this year we decided to go to San Francisco first and then drive to Vegas (longest 9hr drive of my life!) The only thing to see between San Francisco and Vegas is the "World's Largest Thermometer" and I was asleep for that part! Although the road trip part of our trip was not my favorite, San Francisco was amazing!! It was my first time visiting SF and I can't wait to go back!

Although we were only there for 3 days we got to do most of the touristy things we wanted to do! The only thing that we didn't get to do was to visit Alcatraz, but it is on our of things to do for next time!

My Favorite part of the trip was getting to see the Golden Gate Bridge, pictures don't do it justice!!

If you want to see more pictures from our trip to SF keep on reading!!

Golden Gate Bridge:

You can't go to San Francisco and not visit the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, we went to see it about two hours before it closed so it wasn't super packed!

Baker Beach:

Baker Beach had some amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge! You can actually bring a picnic basket and watch the sunset from here! It is amazing and free!

Ferry Building/Coi Tower:

Lombard Street:

Lombard Street is known as the "Crookedest Street in the World", we drove down the street and walked up and down the street. It was so much fun!

Fisherman's Wharf:

Ghirardelli Square:

Who doesn't love chocolate and pretty views?! 

SF Cable Cars:

We actually took the cable car from Fisherman's Wharf to union square. It was so much fun and you great views along the way!

Mr. Holme's Bakehouse:

I'm not going to lie I actually saw a picture of this place on Instagram and wanted to go because it looked really cool, and I do not regret it because all the pastries were so delicious!! 

Make sure to get there early because pastries sell out fast and as soon as they are sold out they close!

The Painted Ladies:

This is not the house from full house like everyone thinks, the house from the show is actually a couple of streets down. The painted ladies were in a couple of scenes in the show but it is not the house where they lived. You can learn more about the Painted Ladies here.

16th Avenue Tiled Steps:

These mosaic steps were just waiting to be photographed! There are 163 steps total and at the top is the beginning of Grand View Park, which overlooks the whole city! For more history on the steps click here.

Grand View Park:

San Francisco was an amazing place to visit, I want to go back soon to do all the things we didn't get to do and of course to catch a baseball game at AT&T Park!!

All about the Mules

Funny story a couple of days ago I texted my husband and told him that I had finally gotten some mules, his response was "It's 10 am on a Saturday I didn't know it was a day drink kind of weekend!" 😂Silly boy! I wasn't talking about the drink; although I do love Moscow Mules! I was actually talking about the shoes!!

As you might've guessed this is not a post about alcohol but about shoes! A couple of months ago when the Mule trend started getting big I said to myself that I was never going to jump on that bandwagon. Fast forward a couple of months and here we are I can't get enough of this trend! One of the main reasons I love mules is because they are effortless, it is as easy as throwing on some slippers but way more stylish!!

Tassel Top

Top ( Here) | Jeans ( Here) | Bag ( Here) | Shoes ( Here) |
Earrings ( Here) | Apple Watch Band ( Here) |

My husband always says put a tassel on anything as my wife will buy it, well he is not completely wrong! Tassels are one of my favorite trends from last year and I am really glad that it has stuck around. There is something about tassels that makes an outfit fun and feel like summer!

With that being said I found the  cutest tassel top under $40!! It comes in two colors; black and  burgundy. The halter top style makes it really flattering and I love how it has two level of tassels and not just at the bottom of the top! Right now is the perfect chance to get this top because Francesca's is having their Friends and Family Sale, everything is BOGO 60%!

I have also linked some of my favorite tassel items below! Most of them are under $50!

The Perfect Spring Dress

Dress (Francescas's) | Bag (Target but Similar Here) | Shoes (DSW) |
Cuff (Kendra Scott) | Sunglasses (Nordstrom) | 
Monogram (Baublebar) |

Spring is here! Well sort of...The weather we have been having the past month is a little bipolar, some days we have the perfect spring day and other days its like winter all over again! On the days it actually feels like spring I have started wearing some of my favorite warm weather purchases!

This dress is definitely one of my favorite recent purchases! It is flattering, comfortable and on trend! When the embroidery trend started picking up momentum I did not like it at all! It reminded me of the infomercials that used to run when I was a kid advertising the stick on patches for your clothing, and trust me back then I rocked it! (at least I thought I did lol) This dress helps you test the waters on the embroider trend if you are like me and you are not sure how you feel about it yet!

Now let's talk about the shoes, these shoes were the IT shoes last summer, everyone was wearing them all over Instagram! I am not much of a wedge kind of girl (when it comes to salads or shoes!) but they looked so cute on everyone that I had to have them!  Lucky for me Steve Madden stepped up  their game this spring and came out with this $60 dupe for the March Fisher espadrille wedges! They are almost identical, but at a reasonable price and they come in 3 colors; black, taupe and cognac! I have worn these shoes out a couple of times and they are super comfortable!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Happy St Patty's day!!
