Prepare for another love it or hate it outfit choice from yours truly. When I first clocked this vintage, over-sized peach blouse at November’s blogger clothes swap, I made a beeline for it and couldn’t put it down. The colour, the neckline and the embroidered back panel were (and are) so unique, like nothing else I own. Just like the chain print shirt that recently appeared on the blog, I have Emily to thank for bringing this shirt to trade.
We took our books to the park at the weekend and it was warm enough that I could just about get away with pairing this blouse with my favourite denim shorts. Despite what my Instagram feed might suggest, the weather here does fluctuate quite a lot, so like a true Brit, I’m the first to get my legs out when the opportunity arises.
Golden Gate Park is dotted with lots attractions, one of which is the Conservatory of Flowers, where these photos were taken. One day I’ll have to venture inside, but, as beautiful as it is, an oversized greenhouse wasn’t the place to be on a sweltering weekend afternoon! I definitely want to go back though, as the building itself is beautiful and reminds me of London’s Kew Gardens.
With the glitter and tan ankle boots this outfit is almost borderline country ‘n’ western for me, even a little bit LA, which is handy as we’re going there at the weekend for a few days. I haven’t been in years, so do any of you have any recommendations for what to see and do while we’re there?
